You’re about to start a summer internship and you want to make the most of it. Check out this great article that highlights 10 things you can do to make the most our of your experience:
- Create a Positive First (and Ongoing) Impression: The endgame here is to gain a professional reference, obtain a letter of recommendation or blurb on LinkedIn and have a quality resume entry. You earn these through punctuality and presenting a professional appearance each day.Be careful what you wear. Yes, it’s summer. But before you leave the house, remember that you are not going to the beach or sunbathing on the campus quad. If you are not certain about the dress code, ask your boss or someone in HR.Keep your workspace clean and organized, and don’t be seen texting or using technology for personal purposes while on the clock. Updating your Facebook status can wait until you get home. (Also see Tip #8)
- Deliver: You want to make sure that you complete any assignments, whether easy or complex, by the deadlines. “The dog ate my homework” (or its digital version) will not resonate here.
- Don’t be High Maintenance: You obviously want to do a good job. Try to take notes on what is expected of you from the outset. When questions arise while you are performing a task, don’t ask your supervisor questions every two minutes. To the extent possible, “bank” your questions and move on to the next part. Then, before the deadline, present your questions in batch mode in order to be able to complete the assignment correctly
