An internship is a great way to bulk up your resume as you prepare to graduate from college and enter the real world of jobs. It helps you get necessary experience as well as learn about the field you plan to head into. Here are some ways you can really make the most of your college internship.
- Networking. Possibly one of the most important things to help you land a career right out of college is through networking. By doing so, you can meet connections within your field, which can hopefully lead you to a job easily.
- Learn about office life. It’s not necessarily tricky, but there is a certain knack to working full time in an office. Through an internship, you can understand the dress code of your field (relaxed vs. formal) as well as how to act appropriately in an office.
- Obtain feedback. One of the most valuable things you can do at your internship is to ask questions, particularly ones that deal with how you’re doing in the position. By doing so, you’ll be able to get more of an insight into how you fared in your position, which you can bring with you into your next job environment.
