Between my time in Corporate America and running my own businesses over the past 35 years I have had the opportunity to hire many interns and have some definite thoughts on the subject. It is my hope that these tips will help you be a better intern and get hired after graduation.
Bottom Line: Think of your internships like the NBA combines. You are trying out and showing your skills to possible future employers. So make the most of the opportunities, your future may depend on it.
Very good points. I got my first job out of college with the company I interned with in Dunedin Florida. There were 4 of us interning, the others had fun and didn’t take the job seriously. I treated it as a job, and came in early, stayed late and always asked my supervisor for more tasks. Basically I did what you suggest in your blog post, great advice and I can vouch that these techniques work.
