We are immersed in a hypercompetitive environment where we can simultaneously learn alongside and challenge one another. Whether you’re a freshman or a graduate student, the elusive summer internship has probably been on your mind in recent months as you contemplate your post-college years.
Some of us will make thousands at elite tech internships. Some still await emails that contain their summer’s fate. Others will feel perfectly content at their neighborhood coffee shop, scooping coffee grounds and crafting the perfect foam flower in lattes.
No matter what where you are at the semester’s end, know that at UC Berkeley, you are not alone. Your peers will share in the same spate of worries and joy as they piece together their summer. We hope you enjoy this issue, which contains tales of internships past and tips for internships future.
