Welcome to The Internship Manual Blog
the leading information resource for minority college students

In today’s competitive job market, many graduates are realizing that getting a degree isn’t enough. Landing a desirable job with little-to-no experience can be a difficult task. However, students who participate in one or more internships have starting salaries that are on average $15,000 more than their classmates who did not. If you want to make more money and become a highly sought after employee, obtaining an internship is a key part of making a smooth transition from student to working professional.

Employers today understand the value of diversity and as a result, seek to find talented students to fill their positions. The Internship Manual is here to connect the vast talent of minority college students from across the country, to employers across the globe.
