7 Ways Summer Interns Can Add Value, Build Their Brands, and Get Hired!

Establishing and building your brand while interning can be tricky. It’s essential to get noticed, stand out, and build relationships. In this blog post, I’m sharing seven ways to help build your brand as an intern and increase your chances of being offered a job or using your internship as a reference for future career opportunities.

Sure, each internship is different. A summer legal intern’s requirements are different from someone in the coding or gaming industry.

My First Defeat (and what I learned from the experience)

My first loss at trial was tough to stomach. It hurt.

Here’s what happened and what I learned. Maybe my experience will help you too.

Mark Pattison Just Climbed Mt. Everest. He’s the First NFL Player to Conquer The Seven Summits!

Last month Mark successfully climbed and summited Mt. Everest, the highest mountain on the planet. By doing so, he became the first NFL player in history to make it to the top of The Seven Summits, the highest mountains on each of the seven continents.

In addition to being a former NFL football player and successful high altitude mountain climber, Mark is also an accomplished entrepreneur, philanthropist, podcaster, and executive at Sports Illustrated. Watch the show to find out what motivates this man to do what he does. Learn his mindset to help you move forward in 2021!

One of Mark’s primary motivations is his dedication to his daughter, Emilia, who is overcoming her own Everest by defeating epilepsy (uncontrolled and sometimes fatal seizures). Currently, more than 3.4 million people in the U.S. have epilepsy (1 in 26 people), with 3,000 people dying each year from Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP). Mark shares a few ways we can all help Emilia, and others, defeat epilepsy.
