Surviving Summer Internships

Two words: Summer Internship.

How is it possible that two words put together can be some of the most scariest and yet exciting things any person can experience? You basically go through an emotional roller coaster during a summer internship, all beginning with fear. You’re nervous, anxious, and once you’re there you feel totally uncomfortable, discouraged even. But once you get your feet wet the excitement kicks in, you begin understanding and have complete respect for your company. You’re happy and begin to receive encouragement and at the end of your internship, you’ll be ultimately satisfied.

We talked to some college students who recently finished internships and who have been in your shoes, and asked them if they had any advice. Here is what a few had to say:

“Manage your time”.

“Resist temptation on summer fun when you need to work”.

“Remember WHY you’re doing it”.

“Still find time to enjoy summer”.

“Put in 110%”.

“Remember, you won’t be an intern forever”.
