Staples Internships (Framingham) and Internship Ideas

CCB juniors and seniors:

I want to bring to your attention that Staples, the BIG office
supplies corporation, is recruiting interns for their Framingham
headquarters. Certainly, these internships are not for everyone as
Framingham is a long commute from the South coast of MA. However, if
you live within a 1/2 hour of Framingham, you might look into the
internship offerings - which are paid and could offer excellent
long-term opportunities and at least an excellent resume entry. They
have posted internships in a variety of areas including: finance, IT,
and public relations (part of marketing).

You must visit and go to their job section and do a
search on Internships (that's the key word).

BTW, I find out about many internships opportunities via a service
called - which you can use. allows you to do
keyword searches -0 such as internships in Massachusetts. Then you
can specify email alerts (sent to you almost daily) when an
internship lands on a web page meeting your search criteria.

Finding internships means looking in many places. Watch for my
emails, my blog, the UMD eRecruiting systems, but also be proactive
and search the net and other resources for good opportunities. We
have had some of the best internships crop up because of students
going the extra mile in their searches. Jessica an accounting major
a few years ago found an excellent internship with a Providence based
CPA firm by blasting out some resumes and cover letters. Joe landed
an HR internship with a large the home improvement chain by replying
to a lead from, Mary got to go to Disney World in Orlando
as part of a summer training session with PWC - as a result of a
campus visit by a PWC recruiter who was here to interview people for
full-time jobs, Justin worked at Merrill Lynch in Washington DC as a
result of meeting with a representative from the Washington Center
who visited campus. All of these internships were not so much
because of my actions or emails but because of the effort made by
motivated students looking for experiences that would ultimately
transform them into professionals. So again I emphasize, if you want
an internship, be proactive and leave no stone unturned.

Finally, as you see internship opportunities pass by in the emails,
on the blog, and in the postings of eRecruiting, you may want to file
them for future efforts. For example, maybe you aren't ready now but
want to do a summer internship. Send a resume to the company in late
spring. If you can't start one now but think the Spring might work,
keep in mind that you need to land one before school starts so I can
get you into the online course where you will earn the 3 credits for
a business elective.

Finally, if your Mom or Dad work for a company that could use an
intern, have them contact me. If you have an uncle that runs a
company or an aunt that's a CEO get them to set up an internship. If
you have a part-time job and think the company would be willing to
structure an internship, we have guidelines they must follow. Keep
your ears and eyes open and internship possibilities will crop up.

Good luck, and stay tuned.
