TIPS FOR GETTING THE MOST OUT OF AN INTERNSHIP
An internship is a great way to gain experience, build your résumé, and even land a full-time job. But a short stint in a company may not be enough time to learn what you need to know, impress those you work for, and secure a job. Here are ways to stand out:
Be relentlessly punctual for meetings, and complete assignments by their deadlines. Complete each task with excellence. Pursue any assignment with drive and determination.
If you’re asked to make coffee, make the best coffee your colleagues have ever had. If you’re asked to make an Excel model, invest your time and effort in ensuring it’s right, aesthetically appealing, and thorough. Anytime you’re meeting with a peer or superior, think of thoughtful questions you can ask.
