How to Behave During an Internship

Date: August 27, 2014  Posted in: blog  Comments: 0

You’ve successfully found an internship, applied, interviewed, and have been offered the position (FINALLY!). The hard part is over, right? NOPE! Sorry intern, it’s just beginning. But don’t be afraid: this is also when all the cool fun stuff happens too. Here are some helpful tips to consider during your internship.

Part 4: How to behave during an internship

  1. Be on time – For the love of Bob, and I can’t even believe I have to say this, but ALWAYS be one time. These people have generously hired you as an intern; please show them gratefulness and respect by showing up on time. Plan for traffic and “oops” time so that you’re never late. If, for some reason, you are unavoidably delayed, make sure you call and explain where you are. Some offices have a policy in place for this, so make sure you learn what that is and follow their protocol.
  2. Continue to dress professionally – Remember, you’re not a full time employee: you are low-man on totem pole. Make sure you’re put-together, ironed (i.e. NOT WRINKLY!!), and you’re following the office dress code.
  3. Hygiene – This may seem like a no-brainer, but sadly it isn’t for some. Always shower. Everyday. Please, I’m begging you. It’s just polite. And sanitary. Slap a little deodorant on yourself as well.
  4. Learn – Learn as much as you can! This is your chance to soak it all in. Be a sponge and absorb your surroundings. This is such a wonderful opportunity to get your hands on a ton of different projects. And don’t be afraid to ask questions. These people know you’re a student. They know you’re greener than grass. They’re expecting you to ask questions. Take advantage of that.

Thanks for reading!
