Timing Is Everything: When to Do an Internship

Back in the day, most college students didn’t start thinking seriously about their career and finding a job until their graduation date was in clear sight. If you apply this strategy today, you are already behind in terms of launching a career that is a good fit for you. It’s no secret that internships are a great way to start clarifying your interests, building your network, and landing that plumb job after you walk across that stage.

When is the best time for four-year college students to do one or more internships? There are no right or wrong answers to this question but there are certain pros and cons about your choice of timing.

Freshman Year vs. Senior Year

Although your career interests and your workplace skills might not be that developed as a freshman, a freshman-year (or sophomore-year) internship can be a good place to start weeding out potential major choices and career paths. Even a part-time internship at this stage will help you develop basic workplace skills like managing time, taking initiative, and communicating in a professional manner. The downside to interning early in your college career is that your career interests might be unclear. An internship you’ve committed to can feel interminable if you discover early on that you don’t enjoy this type of work. As a freshman, you also haven’t had a chance to take the upper division courses in your major that can provide you with stronger qualifications and knowledge as you head into an internship. As a result, you might get meatier projects as a junior or senior than you would as a freshman. You are also more likely to receive an offer for permanent employment with the organization, the closer you are to graduation.

Summer vs. Academic Year

Summer internships allow you more freedom, in general, since you have a wider choice of options such as interning part-time or full-time. Being able to intern full-time will give you a clearer sense for what the workplace is really like and will give you more opportunities to take on and complete intensive projects. Student-athletes typically have more availability during summer without extensive practice and travel schedules. Non-credit summer internships can provide more flexibility in terms of geographical options, if you don’t have to be on campus taking courses. More companies offer internships during the summer (in fact some only offer summer internships); however, the flip side of this benefit is that securing a summer internship can be much more competitive.

If you decide to complete an academic year internship, make sure you plan your course schedule carefully to maximize blocks of time when you can be at your internship. Interns rarely get to work on meaningful projects if they are only able to be in the organization a couple of hours here and there. Take advantage of any academic credit available for completing your internship (and if you are in the U.S. on an F-1 visa, keep in mind that you will need to be earning internship credit towards your degree in order to receive authorization to complete an off-campus internship). Use academic year internships to clarify your career direction and build your network to secure a summer internship.

Interning after Graduation

While it might feel like you are not moving on to a “real job,” completing an internship after you have your diploma in hand can be a good way to get your foot in the door with a company that is highly competitive. Many larger and fast-growing companies use internships as a recruitment tool. Post-graduation internships can also allow you to continue to fine-tune your interests without a longer-term commitment. The downside is that most internships don’t offer benefits such as health insurance, which can be a financial burden as you move towards greater financial independence.

Optimal Summer Internship timing for you will be based on a variety of factors—academic load, whether you need a paid internship, and your goals and other commitments. It’s never too early to create a plan for when you will complete internships during college. If it makes sense for your situation, intern early and often

Winter Internships For College Students – Step By Step Guide

Choosing Winter internships is a big decision for college students. It is important that they choose one where they will learn as much as possible but, after all, it is their Winter vacation and they should have a bit of fun as well. There are a few steps that every student should follow in order to land the Winter internship that will truly fit their educational and personal needs.
There are a few questions that every student should ask themselves before they even start looking for their dream internship. For example, do they want an Winter Internship that is full time or part time? Does the Winter Internship need to be paid or can they afford an paid internship? Do they want to travel or find a position close to home? The answers to all of these questions will have a significant impact on the kind of Winter Internship that a student will apply for.

Once a student has an idea of what kind of Winter Internship they want, they need to find the specific Winter Internship they will apply for. A great way to start looking for an Winter Internship is meeting with a career counselor at the college or university the student attends. They will have extensive information on a variety of opportunities that the student may never have known about if they simply did an online search for Winter Internships.
Students need to remember that just because they need an Winter Internship for school does not mean that a company is required to take them on, and they will have to go through an interview process. It is important to be as prepared as possible for the interview. The student should research some background on the company, prepare questions they may want to ask the interviewer and prepare answers to some basic interview questions.
Once a student lands their Winter Internship, their work is just beginning. They need to make the most out of their experience, taking everything in and learning as much as they can from the experience. They should also make an effort to go the extra mile in all of their tasks because they never know if they will return to the company for a job interview someday.
If students follow these simple steps, they should have no trouble finding Winter Internships that they will love. They need to be very clear about the kind of Winter Internship they are looking for and seek the advice of a career counselor. Once they get the Winter Internship, they need to truly shine and show the company that they would make an excellent employee in the future.

DevOps benefits from data-driven private clouds

lso during our webinar, we explored how a data-driven cloud offers powerful solutions.

First, let’s define “data-driven cloud.”  A data-driven cloud is one that uses real-time, continuous analysis and measurement against totally customizable and configurable SLAs. An example is  Rackspace Private Cloud, which now includes the AppFormix cloud service optimization platform that delivers all of the game-changing benefits of a data-driven cloud.

With a data-driven cloud, operators have the ability to:

Know which parts of their infrastructure are healthy and which are not

AppFormix provides real-time monitoring of every aspect of the cloud stack, right down to the processor level. This includes visibility into every virtual and physical resource at your disposal. The user-friendly interface and customizable dashboard provide a comprehensive list of metrics based on industry best practices. SLAs are completely configurable.

Empower developers with visibility and control

AppFormix offers a dashboard that operators can share with developers via a self-service user experience. Developers then have access to process-level monitoring, with real-time and historical views of their resources and the ability to drill down to deeper and deeper levels of specificity about performance. Both operators and developers can create project-level reports with a click; the report content and the recipients are customizable, and data can be exported in any format. In addition, operators and developers have access to advanced alarming and notification capabilities and can establish static and dynamic thresholds based on their preferences.

Make well-informed capacity decisions

With AppFormix, operators know the true capacity levels of their infrastructure, any time and all the time. AppFormix also enables operators to model potential changes to see what impacts will be on capacity, availability and performance.

If this sounds great on a theoretical level, below are some “real-life” examples of what a DevOps-ready private cloud can do.

  1. Troubleshoot when a user is experiencing slowness;
  2. Real-time notification of events;
  3. Maximize infrastructure ROI using utilization reports;
  4. Determine if there is capacity for a new or expanding project;
  5. Improve availability with configurable policy for SLA.
