Recruiting for an internship can cause a lot of anxiety in addition to an already packed fall. What are some self-care actions you did to keep a healthy balance?
It’s definitely easy to fall into the mentality that you should be studying all the time. I found it so helpful to take breaks. At least one day a week, I wouldn’t do anything related to schoolwork or case prep. I would hang out with friends, exercise (or more likely watch Netflix), and decompress.
Taking the time to rest helped me study more effectively the next day. I was well rested, my mind was sharper, and I was less stressed. Self-care is so important – you don’t want to burn yourself out before your interview.
We’re trying to make a good impression. Any final last minute tips to offer or words of advice before we get back on campus?
So many students view recruiting as a way for employers to evaluate potential candidates.
What’s easily forgotten is that the recruiting process is built for candidates to evaluate potential employers. Having this mindset while applying helped me to relax and to feel a little more empowered throughout the process, and I think it allowed me to express more confidence during the interview.
