Summer Internship: Aim for the White House

Like many other government facilities, the White House sponsors summer interns. For 2010, the deadline for applications is early February and requires 3 letters of recommendation.

Competitive? You bet. But you can give it a shot as you plan other applications at the same time. Use the White House app as your motivation to write great essays that will lead to a fun and stimulating internship. You won't want to depend on only the White House app for your 2010 plans but that doesn't mean it's a waste of time.

Remember, someone will be chosen and you won't lose anything by volunteering yourself as a prospect!
