Out of all the current interns I’ve been here the longest and thought I’d share some intern tips and knowledge that I’ve picked up along the way that no one should be without! Every week I’ll post a tip that will be sure to put you ahead of the pack!
Tip Numero Uno: First day of your internship bring a notebook! Yeah you may have thought you would being doing hands on work during your first day of your internship and that you’d be able to take everything in by just watching, however you’d be sorely mistaken. What happens when you totally forget the list of things to-do that your new internship supervisor just gave you? Well the best way to prevent this from ever happening is get you a nice notebook (one that makes you look incredibly smart and professional-or a Hello Kitty one will work just fine.) And this probably goes without saying but you’re going to need a pen with that notebook so that you can actually write something. (I’m sure you knew that) This maybe the simplest tip, best advice I could give because it will save you so much time and you can always look back at your notes if you forget how to do something. Plus you look super dedicated to your internship while you intently take notes!
Check out some of these awesome notebooks!
Kick it old school with a good old fashion composition notebook!
