Jack Welch, the former General Electric Chairman and CEO, gives advice on summer internships, along with his wife Suzy, former editor of the Harvard Review. I like how he encourages students to find a “decent” internship and acknowledges that internships have changed over the years. In today’s competitive job market, having practical experience before graduation is practically a necessity, and no longer just nice to have on a resume.
Why should we consider Jack’s advice? He was highly successful during his tenure at GE , increasing revenues by nearly $103 billion over his 20-year tenure (GE.com). Enough said…
