  1. Summer Activities and Programs

  2. Brainstorming • What are some examples of summer opportunities available?

  3. Internships & Summer Programs

  4. Internships 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 • 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

  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 email 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 email 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
