You're not a worthless person. Really, you're not. So why does looking at your resume -- currently lacking that prime internship that you wanted so desperately -- make you feel like your life is going nowhere, and that you should just give up and break out the ice cream?
We've all had these moments of despair. The importance of internships is drilled into our heads from the moment we enter college, and spending a summer working a minimum-wage job does little to inspire confidence. While you feel like you're gaining valuable skills and life experience, being a lifeguard has nothing to do with your accounting major. Employers couldn't be interested in seeing that on a resume, could they?
It's a vicious cycle; you can't get a job without experience, and you can't get experience without a job. So what's the big secret? You have to either a) get relevant experience without getting a job, or b) know how to market the skills you already have. Or, ideally, both.
