Episode 8: How a College Internship Can Shape Your Career With Tom Blake
Dec 02, 2019 Season 1 Episode 8
Clint Proctor

Tom Blake is the founder of This Online World, a website that shares ideas on how to make money online, save money, and use the internet to improve your life.

During our interview, Tom talks about some of the college side hustles that helped him graduate debt-free (one of the craziest ones being a strategy known as "phone farming.") But Tom's break-through "side hustle" was a 4-month paid internship that he took with a local digital marketing company.

Tom had already begun to doubt that he wanted to spend a career in social service. But his internship sealed the deal because he quickly learned that he had more of a passion (and aptitude) for online business. Thankfully, Tom was offered a long-term contractor position at the end of his internship and that's what he still doing today.
