More Advice To Help You Succeed At Your Internship

Yusuf Alwattar is a student of the Global Liberal Studies Program, Class of 2014.

So, you just landed that internship you thought you would never get. You
interviewed like a boss, and now you have one. So… what comes next? I mean, how can you actually be successful in your new position?

To keep yourself from becoming like your not-so-successful predecessor (like that guy who earned the title of worst intern ever), here are three helpful tips:

1. Be accommodating and polite. You’d be surprised how much office politics affects things like promotions, responsibilities, and trust. Your attitude can definitely affect the willingness of your boss to confide in you. In other words, saying good morning can get in on exciting board meetings instead copying papers.

2. Ask questions. Begin asking questions at your interview, so you know what
work you expect to do. Continue asking questions throughout the internship. Just make sure you understand your task and your responsibilities. Don’t worry about asking too many questions. It’s better to sound like an idiot in the beginning, than to actually look like one while you’re still figuring out how to write a memo three hours in.

3. Enjoy. Find a way to enjoy your internship, even if that means arriving fifteen
minutes early so you look at the view from One World Financial Center. As a general rule, people like happy people. Maybe your boss will react positively to your enthusiasm and give you more important, worthwhile responsibilities; or maybe she will consider paying you next semester. At the very least, if you looked like you liked your job and you tried hard to accomplished all of those ridiculous tasks your boss asked you to do, his or her letter of recommendation to your next boss might just tip the scales in your favor.

How To Be A Great Intern

Le-Jeune Sealey-Horsford, is a Class of 2014 student in the College of Nursing. Here, she offers some valuable advice about making the most of your internship.

Congratulations! You have landed the internship of your dreams. An internship is an amazing opportunity for personal and professional growth, a chance to learn about the company that hired you and also a chance to learn about yourself. It might even be an opportunity to discover new interests and talents.
So, you have your intern ID, you’ve bought your work attire, and everything seems to be falling into place. But there’s still anxiety looming about how to be a great intern. Here are a few tips:

Set goals and objectives – Think about what you want to achieve during the internship and steps to achieve them.
Be professional – Introduce yourself to the staff, be punctual, and have a good attitude. The saying, “your attitude determines your altitude” couldn’t be truer, so be sure to put your best foot forward.
Ask questions – Your employer wants you to ask questions so don’t be afraid to do so. Remember, the only stupid question is the one not asked!
Network – Networking can open doors for you. It’s also a way to give you a sense of direction, and find out about other opportunities for further growth.
Reflect – Keep a journal of all the great things you have done at your internship. It’s a nice keepsake, a way to evaluate your progress and will come in handy when you update your resume.
Give thanks – Be sure to thank your boss, co-workers, human resource personnel, and anyone else who has been helpful to you throughout your internship.
Update your resume – Don’t forget to update your resume with your internship experience.
