For those entering the workforce, internships are no longer optional.

In our “new” economy, 45% of young adults under 25 remain unemployed. And in 2010, 80% of graduates do not expect to have a job soon after graduation – up dramatically from just 49% the year before.

Without jobs waiting for them, students must plan their career paths years in advance – a career-relevant internship is the key to success. And for good reason: 9 out of 10 direct-from-college jobs will go to students with experiential education on their resumes.

At YouTern, we connect emerging talent to entrepreneurial driven companies through internships. With YouTern, intern candidates have a choice: the “coffee and copy” dash at large corporations... Or, the YouTern opportunity. To see more about YouTern, go to www.youtern.com.To see their initial launch press release, go to www.youtern.com/cm/press_release

Because of these developments, a group at Berkeley started pursuing a vision of enabling universities and mobile telephony companies around the globe to collaborate on tapping into the energy and enthusiasm of students by encouraging them to become mobile applications entrepreneurs. Mobile applications are a global phenomenon and they offer clear, real world incentives for students. These young people are poised to become the next generation of entrepreneurs, developers, technology leaders and visionaries. To make mobile applications innovation and entrepreneurship happen, the mobile industry needs to collaborate with and support mobile technology entrepreneurship in the curriculum and extra-curriculum of all of the world’s major universities.

Andrea Waltz and Richard Fenton

Go for No

Everyone loves the sound of the word YES... it’s so positive, so empowering. And then there’s “NO!” For most people, NO is just the opposite: negative… draining… the antithesis of yes. But what if that could change?

What if you could achieve every quota… hit every income goal… and reach every personal dream… simply by changing the way you think, feel, and respond to hearing the word NO?

Well, you can.

When you hear the word, NO...

  • What does that "NO" mean to you?
  • How do you respond to it 'internally' in your mind (what you think)?
  • And how do you respond to it 'externally' in your behaviors and actions (what you do)?

Here's a simple fact: The relationship you have with the word NO… what you think and feel when you hear it, and what you do afterward as a result - whether you seek opportunities to hear NO again, or whether you run from them - is THE single most important factor in determining the level of success you will achieve in your life. Check out our Go for No! Breakthrough Package!
