Getting The Most Out of Your Internship Experience

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 recommendation or full-time offer. Here are ways to stand out:

  • Be relentlessly punctual. Show up on time (or early) in the morning, arrive for meetings before they begin and complete assignments by their deadlines.
  • Complete each task with excellence. Pursue any assignment – even if it’s mundane – with drive and determination. If you’re asked to make an Excel model, invest your time and effort in assuring it’s right, aesthetically appealing and thorough.
  • Ask questions – good ones. Anytime you’re meeting with a peer or superior, think of thoughtful questions you can ask that show you’re prepared for the meeting and that you respect their time.
