Summer Internships -- Start Now!

What do all summer internships have in common?
Application deadlines!

February 1.
March 1.
April 1.

As Joel says, his advice is not so different from every book on resumes you pick up at Barnes & Noble. But most books don't say it with Joel's flair.

Plan your "human" hook now! And watch your commas. These tips will make sense as soon as you read Joel's web page.
