How to Turn an Internship Into a Paid Job

Brand new seats.

You don’t have to stand outside in the rain for tickets.

Michael Jordan’s on the move.

Have you been to the United Center in Chicago lately?

I was there yesterday because I have a client who works for one of the teams that play at the United Center. Check out what’s going on inside:

Crews are ripping out the old seats.

YES! New seats. Now, you don’t have to sit on a seat with decades old beer stains.

As I’ve been training this exec, I’ve seen the swarms of summer interns come in and out of the new executive offices. A few may move onto part-time or full-time jobs this fall, if they play their cards right.

Do you know a high school or college student looking for internships for the fall or winter? There are a few key ways they can turn that internship into a full-time job.

I had an internship at a TV station and was hired by another TV station soon after. I had a full-time job waiting for me when I graduated college.

Turning an internship into a job is key. You don’t want to wait to search for a job after you graduate. I talk about it in this recent video, shared live last week on Facebook.

Share it with students you know who are looking for an internship or share it with their parents. The information can truly help give an up-and-comer a leg up in his or her career. Have a question you’d like answered live on Facebook? Send me an email, then be sure to join me each Thursday at 1pm Central at facebook.com/kathrynjaniek.

PS: Here are more pictures from inside the United Center yesterday.

What Facebook Live can do for you (i.e. increase sales)

Don’t know how to make a Facebook Live land you new business leads?

Is your only production knowledge from watching Wayne’s World? “Camera one, camera two… camera one, camera two.”

Think it’s all a waste of time?

My Facebook Live show this week answered all your questions:

  • Why should I be on Facebook Live?
  • How do I use it to land more sales?
  • How can I set up Facebook Live to fit MY budget?
I’ve been going live since 1998 as a TV producer. Longer than most people you’ve seen call themselves “live video experts”. My background is in making other people look great while broadcasting live on TV. Once Periscope got on the scene — I jumped all over that going live from TV shoots in Hawaii and other destinations. On Facebook, I have taken viewers like you live to:
  • a TV shoot in Mississippi where I was covering a historic case
  • Kansas the week of the 2016 presidential election to show what the middle of the country was thinking
  • and I also do live shows on Facebook to share how you can gain the media’s attention and improve your public speaking skills.

I LOVE live video. But honestly, I love PRODUCING live video. Without doing my own Facebook Lives, I was missing out on the MARKETING POWER Facebook Live has for everyone like me who owns a company.
Don’t be like me in 2016… missing out on all that marketing power. Missing out on the clients I could have landed.

Watch this video to find out:

  • Why people will see your Facebook Live faster than any blog you post
  • How you can promote new products or services on Facebook Live
  • How Facebook Live creates trust with your audience
  • How it helps your marketing strategy
  • Why you should interview your CEO on Facebook Live
  • How to share the video later and integrate it into your overall marketing strategy
  • What kind of equipment you need to do a high-quality FB Live (without busting your budget)

I’ll be going live again next Thursday at 1 pm Central so mark it in your calendars, set an alarm, whatever you need to do to make sure you’re here on my Facebook page. Oh, and send me your media or public speaking questions and I’ll answer them live.
