Trying to help my younger brother break in to IB and wondering if anyone has any advice on this situation. He’s D1 athlete that went to a non target on scholarship due to my family’s financial situation. However, he has super minimal internship experience since he was forced to play in semi pro leagues each summer so he’s running in to the the classic non target candidate issue. Any thoughts on what he can do to improve his candidacy?/ any small firms known to have less rigid recruitment policy?
(24y) Started working at a startup company during my studies (MSc Bioprocess technology). Felt really good to gain real experience with my technical background while still in uni. Became part of management team while still doing courses at uni. I decided to do my MSc internship at the company as well to be able to be involved full time. However, I realize now to make this startup fly we really have to pull something off. Still have to do MSc thesis. Founder offers stock options. What should I do

Hello all, I am a third-year microbiology undergraduate student at UT that is unsure whether I’ll continue research. I know that the job market for biology majors is scarce and while I hold a decent number of leadership positions on campus, I lack the internship experiences to guide me towards a certain career path. Would you be willing to share your advice for someone who feels directionless/ share experiences about holding a bachelor’s in biology and continuing on a different career path?

I told a former legal intern I could write two recommendation letters for them and realized this morning that I’d missed the deadlines for submission on different days earlier this week. A close neighbor died after a long illness this week and it hit me harder than expected as I’ve been trying to process all of the losses so many people have suffered over the past year and a half. Should I let the former intern know or reach out to the companies and try to submit the letters late first?

I have an internship ending next week and wanted to send two bosses thank you gifts but I don’t know of what to get. For reference one is male & his 30s with a young family and one is an adult female but her children are grown so something for the family is not as relevant. Ideas??
Hello UX people, I need your thoughts here. A friend of mine has been in the market for a UX job for over a year. He's very green with only internship experience. Recently, he was interviewing with a company who asked him to do a take home UX case study on their product. He sent it over a couple weeks ago and they ghosted him. It feels incredibly unethical, but I'm wondering if this is standard practice at companies? Thanks!
How do I approach my CD about staying longer as an intern or becoming an Art director at the agency? My internship ends soon.
VC fund I interviewed with has 100 AUM. 6 person team. When I started talking with them, they wanted me to do a 3 month internship. Figured it was fine because I was tired of consulting and would get my foot in the door. Now they’re telling me that they just raised another 100M. And they want me to intern for 12 months with no guarantee of anything at the end. Clearly isn’t a money problem with the new fund so……

Recently moved to LA, and landed an internship as a digital marketer. The pay is $400-$600 every month and it’s on a bi-monthly pay. I would be working 20 hours a week minimum and driving an hour there and back. This would be my first internship but I’m afraid it’s not worth the pay. Any advice?
