Wondering what an ideal day at an internship might look like? Curious what makes the superheroes at Empowerly special?

Some criteria that are evident across the board at different colleges and universities are: good grades, well-written college essays, glowing recommendation letters, and of course, community and school extracurricular activity involvement.
With the current state of things, finding summer activities are hard. Luckily, a lot of internships and externships have switched over to being remote, allowing students to continue to explore possible career paths without putting themselves at risk of exposure. But what are externships and what makes them different from internships?
Undergraduate research remains one of the most sought-after qualities in the college search. Students want to know how, when, and where to find opportunities for hands-on projects. Not only do these research projects allow students to express creativity, take control of their education, and delve deeper into their specific interests, it’s a great way to demonstrate leadership and initiative on your resume—for any career you want to pursue. From humanities to STEM, opportunities to produce independent work under the supervision of a highly-qualified faculty member are a golden ticket to standing out. Convinced?
