Internship Makeup #1: 11-5-19

The BIS Internship Experience

The goal is for you to secure an internship TODAY.

Part 1: The Killer Cold Call

Start with learning to make a Killer Cold Call

Using the list of places you researched for a possible internship site, make at LEAST 5 phone calls – if you get turned down all five times, MAKE 5 MORE CALLS. Use your Killer Cold Call Script to get the conversation started. Remember to take notes!

If you secure a lead to an internship site, and they ask you to bring a resume by or to talk to them in person, GO! but check out with us and the office first... (you may also stop at that point in the makeup assignment).

After you make your phone calls, do the following in the same word doc of the "Killer Cold Call" article and script:

  1. List the names of all the places you contacted, including phone numbers
  2. Who did you talk to? (List names and positions)
  3. What was the result?


Part 2: Current Events

Complete the following in a new Word document from above:

CNN Student News (list this as a heading in your Word doc)

  1. Watch CNN Student News for today, November 5th, 2019
  2. Write a summary of the entire broadcast from today by defining all the national and international news that is shown. Tell the who(s), what(s), where(s), when(s), why(s) and how(s)
  3. Write a pargraph detailing your reaction(s) to the segment

New York Times Learning Network (list this as a heading in your Word doc)
