#SOS

I’d like to poll my COM 509/609 friends (and the always helpful Melinda Arnold) on how everyone is starting their job searches. I’ve been applying for internships like a mad woman and each time I’m finding that I’m struggling with my approach.

Which is odd because I work in commission based retail, so you’d think I’d be pretty good at approaching stranger who have something I want. But this time I don’t want their money, I want their employment.

So any suggestions on how y’all are approaching employers? Particularly ones that you do not know, like what are you saying in your e-mails when you send out cover letters and resumes? Besides, “My name is Senior Student, please hire me!”
