Now the time has come for me to start applying for internships, and IU thought I'd throw a couple of questions out to the forum. I'm a first-year graduate urban planning student and this position will be my first planning-related one.
I've got some design-related skills, particularly in hand drawing. Should I put together a portfolio prior to sending off resumes and add in a link to it? How important would it be to have a portfolio available when applying for internships?
My undergraduate degree was in a somewhat unrelated subject and I don't have any professional work experience, but I have plenty of volunteer work experience in social justice and community organizing fields. Should I emphasize that over everything else?
