Tips for internship

Internship is a very interesting period of your student life. When we are kids we always wonder about doing a lot of internships in our summers. The best internships and volunteering programs are international ones you can visit various continents such as internships in Australia, UK or USA.

Gradually we realize that internships tougher than jobs. Why? I think it is because we are not familiar with the office system and the thought or impression which arises in our seniors mind, f they are really concerned is to make us learn the work. Thus, they pour in a lot of tasks. 

This makes the most awaited internships of our lives a hectic routine. I have seen teenagers cry when they do something wring, poor kids think that the management would struck them out. Which will never happen every professional institute knows that they are to give a free hand to the interns.    

Interns are not expected to do the perfect job, this is why generally interns or people who opt for apprenticeship work as an assistant first. This helps them to learn even more, firstly they observe what is happening secondly they take notes thirdly they feel indirectly involved in each action and task. 

In this article I have picked some best tips for making your internship, either paid or unpaid a success story.    You do not have to follow all, but some of them might suit you while some don’t, it depends where you are working and what is your post. 

I have gathered some basic ones, which might be applied to any post, if you have got some new ones, you can tell me about them too. 

  • Dress like a professional 

For giving an impression that you are really aspiring for the post. You must feel that you are at that post. This can only be done when you will have an environment and feeling. Psychologist claims that your appearance plays a pivotal role in creating a feeling for you. 

Professionalism includes a lot of things. It includes the way you communicate. How you dress, what are your thoughts about your job. Are you planning to do it for its own sake or for your financial stability. All these things cover some part of professionalism. 

  • Be resourceful 

When you will take a responsibility the first thing you try to do is resourcefulness. You have to be a charming resource. Your colleagues must think of you when stuck in a problem. This can only happen when you have got enough theoretical knowledge. For that purpose you will have to be a very good student during your school and college. 

This is not similar to the thing that only toppers and book worms are going to get the job. No, you just need to be a bit polite, kind and empathic with your group. Lastly, you must know the general dynamics and aspects of your job. 

  • Make links 

Keep one thing in mind, be practical. You are not robot neither you are working with machines Intimidation and connections are important. 

An emotional attachment with the people working with you in the same cabin is an essential part, thus the human resource manager would notice your efforts for maintaining a peaceful environment. 

  • Be a jack of all trades 

Remember you are just an intern you do not need to be a perfectionist, instead it is high time to prove you as a jack of all trades. You can do anything you want because you are not assigned for being a person nor you are going to be responsible for a specific section. 

That is why the employers  will try to test you in every section, this will not only help you find your real interests In a bigger frame. At that time you must eb willing to do anything and everything for your job.  

Conclusion
