1 Summer Activities and Programs

2 Brainstorming What are some examples of summer opportunities available?

3 Internships & Summer Programs

4 Internships Gain work experience and transferable skills Earn course credit Possibly earn money Experience a prospective career path Gain practical experience by applying Network with professionals for references and job opportunities Build your resume Summer College Programs Exploring new interests Meet peers with same interest Conduct real-life research Earn college credit Experience college life Explore the colleges that interest you Determine what majors interest you

5 Where to begin your search Ask around  Reach out to existing friends, SHPE Chapter members or contacts with connections to employment opportunities or summer programs Use high school resources  Visit the guidance office or reach out to teachers for suggestions Use online search engines Visit the websites of companies and universities you would like to work/attend  Send an or call if you do not see any open opportunities listed. Create your own opportunity!

6 Next steps Begin your search NOW! Prepare references and resume  Request letters of reference from teachers/contacts in advance. Give at least two weeks notice.  Use guidance office as a resource when creating your resume and have it reviewed by a teacher or professional Follow up with a phone call for positions or programs you have applied for but not received a response from (check if they allow calls)

7 Interview tips Research the company/program  Have a general idea of the company/university’s history and mission.  Ensure you understand the position /program you are applying for Arrive early

8 Interview tips Dress professionally for interviews Ask questions  Prepare 2-3 questions in advance to demonstrate your interest in the position/program Follow up with a thank you note to the person that conducted your interview Follow up with a phone call or one week later if you have not had a response (if allowed)

9 Think outside of the box Volunteer  Reach out to local charities and organizations to learn what opportunities are available in your area
