How to Strive at Your New Internship

You’ve just landed dream internship.  Congratulations!  So now what?  There are countless ways that you can really make your internship count.  Many hope to turn their internship experience into a full-time position, but how exactly does one go about that?

Make your internship goals are clear.  Set up a meeting with you manager; they’ll know that you are serious about gaining experience from this internship, and you’ll have a better idea of how to most efficiently service the company.

Never be afraid to ask questions.  If you’re confused on whether or not your executing a task properly, just ask.  There’s not use in continuing to do something wrong.  That doesn’t help you, doesn’t help the company, and wastes a lot of time.

Be respectful of the office policies. Follow the companies’ dress code.  The last thing you want to do is show up in a pair of flip flops and a mink skirt when the policy is business casual.  It’s simple to dress professionally and make a good impression in that regard.
