Create Your Own Internship

Description

In this interactive event focusing on Will Bachman’s e-book “Create Your Own Internship: The Umbrex Playbook”, Will will walk through this resource, and give individualized ideas to some participants.

This book seeks to raise the ambition of young people and provides a process to take an entrepreneurial approach to create their own internship.

The intended audience includes students in high school, college, and business school, but all are welcome – perhaps this isn’t you but you’d like to share this resource with a son, daughter, niece, nephew, younger sibling, or other young person in your life.

Everyone who attends will get a free copy of the e-book.

More info on this resource:

Following the playbook of independent consultants, the book suggests that students:
1) Take an inventory of their skills and interests
2) Make a target list of organizations (companies or non-profits) they’d like to get experience working with
3) Come up with initial set of ideas on how they could add value to those organizations
4) Reach out to leaders via LinkedIn to set up meetings
5) Keep track of these interactions with a spreadsheet-based CRM system
6) Craft and refine proposals on how they could add value (with 40+ sample ideas provided)
7) Set up their own entity and contract to provide services as an independent professional
