Get the Most Out of Your Summer Internship with Lynda.com

As summer approaches, you may be looking forward to beginning your new summer internship, and gaining hands-on experience in your field. You may be required to use job skills that you have never used before. ThunderCloud Training, powered by Lynda.com, can assist you in gaining expertise that will enhance your internship experience.

One course we recommend watching is Turning an Internship into a Job, which discusses finding the best internship for you, gaining job referrals, or even turning your summer internship into a full-time position after graduation. 

Additionally, Lynda.com includes courses on effective communication, top job skills, and software that you might be asked to use on the job. Impress your new boss by watching a Lynda video to learn something you don’t know how to do! 

ThunderCloud Training, powered by Lynda.com, is a leading online learning company that helps you learn skills from industry professionals in a self-paced, convenient format. Lynda.com provides over 5,900 professional on-demand video courses that teach valuable business, software, and life skills. Normally a subscription to Lynda.com costs $250 a year, but Wheaton students have unlimited access to high-demand training courses. 

Remember, you can always save videos to a playlist to watch later and your place is automatically saved. Enjoy the flexibility to watch Lynda.com content anytime, anywhere with offline viewing options and mobile apps. After you watch a course, be sure to check out the suggested courses to see related videos as well as more advanced and in-depth options.
