Breaking In Reviews
Although this book is geared towards people applying for newspaper internships, it really helps ANYONE applying for internships in ANY field. Grimm expounds on the importance of getting an internship and that first-hand professional experience in their field of study. I recommend this book to anyone who desires to apply for any internship!

Reading that book was the best thing I have done for my up and coming career. It gave me practical tools to use now and some to file for later. I fully plan on recommending it to my fellow students so that they can get some of the great advice I got. I really enjoyed reading the book, the personal stories created a serious effect. Some of those bad things could happen to me (yikes!) and some of those good things could happen to me (yea!).
