I submitted to an internship about a month ago for the summer term; the site says it will announce when it has chosen its interns, but as it's getting near the time when most companies would start their internships, I'm a bit apprehensive.
The company, like most that ask for submissions, asks that applicants not contact about the status of their submissions. I've obeyed this request anytime a company posts it; however, when I mentioned this to two of my relatives who are professionals in other fields, they suggested that companies are more likely to remember someone who break those rules because a) so few people do it and b) they know they want the job.
Personally, I'm not to sure about this. I'd be more worried about pissing off an AD somewhere and being blacklisted forever. Has anyone run into this situation before, and what do you usually do?
I doubt you'd be blacklisted forever, but I doubt they'd be very impressed with your listening skills. Yes, sometimes breaking the rules pays off, but more often I'd think it just annoys people who thought they spelled things out pretty clearly.
It's like asking a girl out, when she's already made it clear she isn't interested. Sure, everyone has heard some story about "I had to badger her to go out with me, and now we've been together 85 years," but I'm sure for every one of those stories there are thousands of women wondering why these idiots can't take no for an answer.
Haha, nice analogy Dweller.
Hmm, perhaps just bend the rules and contact them asking when or if they've choosen their interns, and not specifically on your status. At this point I'm willing to bet they have contacted their interns but have less incentive to post a "we got 'em" notice. Good luck!
The Dweller-- Nice analogy. I figured that would be the case.
Mirana-- I'd assumed they'd contacted their interns as well; however, one of my other friends who applied for a different internship three weeks before mine didn't hear a word back from them until a week ago asking her on board. The one I applied for may well just be lazy about updating their page, but my friend's situation has given me a spark of hope.
Not that it would matter at this point; I've already made plans to finish my degree over the summer, so I'd have to refuse it even if they offered.
