In today's highly competitive job market,
an internship at the right company can be the first step to building a career.
But how do you get the gig of your dreams?
And once in the door, how do you
figure out what to wear,
whether it's okay to hook up with a coworker,
and how to suck it up when you're smarter than your boss?

Jamie Fedorko steers prospective interns along every step of the journey. He'll help you with the basic stuff -- hunting down internship leads, acing the interview, and making a great first impression. But this book takes it one step further, into understanding office politics and social etiquette, dealing with impossible bosses, making the most of time-wasting assignments, and drawing a line between being helpful and being a doormat. Hilarious, wry, and wise, The Intern Files will teach you how to enjoy the view from the bottom of the ladder -- and start climbing rapidly to the top.

"As someone who has hired hundreds of interns and entry-level college graduates over the last twenty-five years, I found The Intern Files to be a very straightforward, pragmatic guide for college students. It really hits the mark."
