Helloa, my name is Idella Moore, I am a junior at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff. I've been talking to my advisor about getting an internship this summer. I decided to get help on my on because my advisor has been in and out of school because of illness, I've contacted my campus career services for help. I think i need more help outside of campus. I'm looking for an intern position for Accounting. Can someone please help me or direct me someone?
I am no where near Arkansas but instead of waiting for the summer time try looking for an internship right now since firms are usually looking for people now, plus you would gain a lot of knowledge during this time.
Best of Luck
Hey Idella, I'm from Arkansas as well. You should attend the career fairs at your school to see if any of those companies offer internships. Pine Bluff is a small city so you would need to look for companies in Little Rock. I was able to secure a Summer internship through the campus career services though. It's very competitive since you are competing against UCA, Fayetteville, and Little Rock. I would suggest looking at Acxiom, Perfect 10, or local CPA firms.
We are actually looking for the same position.Geez!:D I've also been finding a summer internship because I want my vacation to be worthwhile.:) I believe this will be a great experience for us.I have also read that about 60 percent of 2011's summer hires and interns became full-time employees. That is an all-time high. In the current difficult job industry, summer internships are becoming progressively important as a first foothold onto the professional ladder. I've just read it here: Summer jobs and internships: career gateways .May this be a driving force for us in doing our best during our internship.Good luck to us! :)
