How to start the year 2023 as a Rwandan university student looking for an internship?

Starting the new year off on the right foot is one of the best ways for university students to jumpstart their search for an internship. Now is the perfect time to begin beefing up your resume, reaching out to contacts, and updating your LinkedIn profile.

To give yourself an edge when searching for internships, you should look into taking career-focused classes offered by your school or local college or university. You can also use this time to attend informational meetings, online workshops, and other events dedicated to helping students find internships in their fields.

Additionally, it's a great idea to start crafting thoughtful cover letters and researching companies that are looking for interns. Networking with professionals in your industry can help you make connections and learn about available opportunities before they're advertised.

Finally, staying organized throughout the process and keeping track of where you've applied will help you stay ahead and get noticed by recruiters. Taking these steps at the beginning of the year will set you up for success in finding your perfect internship!

Vamos with 2023!
