y the time you read this, an estimated 22 million people will be enrolled in American colleges and universities. As you get settled in with classes and back- to-school activities, you’re probably also planning to meet scores of employers who will come to campus to recruit students for full-time and internship opportuni- ties.


Too early to think of 2015 internships? Well, no. In partnership with top U.S. employers, colleges hold some of the largest career fairs in the fall to recruit qualified applicants interested in part-time oppor- tunities as well as internships. Inside, you’ll meet students and alumni who put themselves in the driver’s seat with advance planning.


Take Alex Killam, an electronic engineering major at Norfolk State University who interned at Chrysler in Auburn Hills, Michigan. This sum- mer, he worked with a vehicle integration team, testing the 2015 police Dodge Charger, as well


as the 2015 police Ram and 2015 police Dodge Durango. Killam got his summer job after he met with Chrysler representatives at the BEYA STEM fair in February 2014. He actually received two internship offers from Chrysler in engineering and manufacturing.


Internships are the gateway to meaningful jobs for STEM (science, technology, engi- neering and mathematics) students.


Those who design corporate internship programs are doing their utmost to bring that perfect candidate into their organizations because in an increasingly intercon- nected world where doing business globally is now the norm, interns are a critical part of the human resources talent pool that sustains and grows companies.


Cover to cover, this back-to-school issue contains all the strategies you’ll need: tips for landing the best internships, first-person narrative of the internship experience, tips for college success, as well as advice from professionals who have navigated the career maze: from intern to executive officers in some of the largest energy compa- nies in America.
