Now that you’ve landed your summer internship, the hard work begins! Here is my advice for making the most out of your internship, regardless of the company:
1. Come prepared
I can’t stress this enough. Before you applied for the internship, you should have researched it A LOT. Now that you’re there, the research shouldn’t stop. You should familiarize yourself with all of the company’s clients and what your department is working on. If someone asks you to assist on a project, you should be able to jump in and get to work immediately.
2. Be curious
Look into the company’s past work, it will help you mimic the company’s way of doing things and you won’t have to ask a ton of questions when they ask you to do something. Look into competitor’s work, and find out how you can top it. Just learn as much as possible while you’re there.
But that’s not all! For the last two tips, click here!
Have an amazing time at your internship!
