Summer Internship opportunities in April [#permalink] New post 29 Mar 2011, 09:24
I am an evening MBA student looking to get an internship for the summer of 2011. I missed most of the fall recruiting season at my campus for a number of reasons, however, I am still in search of an MBA for the summer. My concentration is in Supply Chain Management and I would like my internship to specialize in this field but at this time, I'm leaning towards just trying to receive any internshhip just so I can gain some experience.

Off campus internship searching hasn't been successful and I managed to get one interview for an internship from on campus recruiting during March (which I was passed up).

My school seems not to be as helpful for evening MBA's as it is for full time MBA's and I have a hard time receiving prompt replies when I ask questions or am notified late of what to do to be eligible for on campus recruiting. I just wanted to know if on campus recruting for interns last till mid-late April and if I don't earn an internship, what's the purpose of earning an MBA (in the near term) for a career switcher such as myself. I highly doubt companies would want to hire a career switcher with no experience regardless of if he/she has an MBA.

The purpose of a part-time MBA is not for career-switching, although it does happen. Full-time MBA is best suited for career switchers. Regardless, what's done is done. Have you tried to contact alumni? You need to start networking both inside and outside your school. Also, if you are so worried, I would consider an unpaid internship just to get your feet wet.

Getting an interview through on campus recruiting then passing it up is probably a good way to not win the school recruiting team over.

There should be things about - doostang is pretty good as a resource for internships.
