Welcome to a brief introduction to the world of work. In the next two or three years, this will be your reality: the hunt for a job. You may be engaged by a company for the summer to gain working experience: make the most of it. I remember my first internship, I ensured that I asked everyone whether they needed help. This left a positive impact on management and staff, and I was invited back to work for future summers.
Things interns should do:
1.Get to work on time daily;
2.Talk to everyone and network;
3. Offer to help staff from various departments;
4.Ask questions about everything
5.Work overtime for at least 15 minutes twice a week:
6. Save any salaries that you receive;
7.Try to find out where you fit in , in the organisation;
8. Make friends with fellow interns;
9.Remember to enjoy your summer, go to the beach, movies,parties;
10.Observe the adults who are happy with their jobs and those who are bitter.
