Students, edit your resumes and type up your cover letters — it's internship time.
But the competition will be stiff, especially if you're applying to Facebook, whose internships are rated the highest for the second year in a row, according to careers website Glassdoor. (What's the secret, Zuckerberg?)
By now you know that hashtags are like clickable magnets, drawing eyeballs to your social content. But did you know that if you use too many -- more than two or so per post -- it can actually drive people away?
