Student Internship Tip - December 7, 2006

TIP: Make sure your internship employer knows that you want to work there full-time when you graduate! Employers like to hire people who actually want to work for them.

Business Student Internship

What might a business student internship opportunity look like? Just so happens I found one the other day. It’s with the CBDC (Community Business Development Corporation). It’s for the Hampton, New Brunswick, Canada area. Knowing it will expire soon (and you may read this after it’s too late), I thought I would highlight some of the skills a “typical business internship” opportunity like this requires.

  • A post secondary degree in Business Administration, Accounting or other related field.
  • Experience in dealing with the public.
  • Must have strong verbal and written communication skills.
  • Bilingualism would be considered an asset.
  • Must have a valid driver’s license and access to a reliable vehicle.
  • Excellent relationship building skills.
  • The capability to thrive in a team environment.

Sounds like many business students I know! Go for it. Opportunities like this are excellent “stepping stones” for a budding career in business or government.

Students: Stop Paying Bank Fees!

I have been meaning to write about this for awhile now, and since we seem to talking “student finance” lately, here it goes:

University and college students know as well, or better than anyone that sometimes “every penny counts” when trying to balance a budget, pay tuition, LIVE, party and generally “get by.”

ENTER: President’s Choice Financial Banking. A leading (if not, THE LEADING) no fee bank in Canada. Seriously, stop paying service fees to do your everyday banking! Get off your butt (LOL), and pick up the phone, or drop into a Loblaws, Zehrs or Superstore, and sign up.

Sure, it’s going to take 5 or 10 minutes, but we’re talking NO MORE BANK FEES - PERIOD. So, instead of paying $5, $10, $15 or more every month for using your own money, you pay ZERO, and even get interest on your balance monthly.

Over a lifetime school year, that can really add up!

Note: Like everything else on my blog, this is based on my personal experience, and is my personal opinion. (D*mn lawyers). LOL

Map 100 Site Directory

Keep an eye on this directory! I found this new directory site today and it’s looking great. is a directory with over 300 (surely thats a lot!) categories, very well classified and extremely organized.

On top of that, the site has a unique design, unlike all the directories out there using designs that dozens of other directories use.

The site seems to be doing heavy promotion as well, so expect to hear more from it in the future. I really like the directory and its slogan. - “Mapping users to the best sites.”

Loans, Loans, Loans!

I was searching around for information on student loans the other day, and happened upon a loan resource website I just have to tell you about.

It’s called the

Student Credit Card Offers!

I’m always on the lookout for “good deals for students!” Sometimes that means seeking out top internship opportunities, sometimes it means finding information on student loans or graduate jobs, and sometimes it means locating student finance and credit information.

Well, check this out > - is a huge credit card resource! CardGuide is well laid-out and easy to navigate, and contains information on some of the best credit card offers on the planet! From “big brand” cards to student credit cards; even credit card offers for those whose credit is a little “challenged” at the moment - it’s all here.

Doing a little research on the various credit card offers available to you while in college or university might be the most important research you do this semester! ;) is a recommended credit card portal! Check it out.
