Looksharp Blog Competition — The Posts are Here!

We announced the Looksharp Blog Competition in mid-December, with the goal of getting as many students as possible to share about their summer internship experiences, so that other students could learn about the myriad of internship experiences that are out there. The results are in and with over 50 student submissions we have compiled an amazing collection of internship insights, from what it’s like to work at Tommy Hilfiger’s Amsterdam office to how to land an eight month internship at a top engineering firm. The links to all the posts are below! Please share and tweet the posts you like to give recognition to the posts you like–we’ll be announcing our own hand selected winner and runner ups on Monday!
