So, you’ve kicked off your internship, but feeling like you’re not quite hitting your stride? Don’t sweat it! Anna and Zach have your back with some tips on how to thrive during your internship.

Set Clear Goals!

Take a moment to envision what you hope to gain from this experience. Whether it’s acquiring new skills, building relationships, or gaining specific experiences, having clear goals will guide your progress and help you evaluate your internship journey. Aim for at least 5 specific goals to keep you focused.

Remember, It’s a Marathon, Not a Sprint.

Don’t judge your internship experience based on just a few days. Recognize that it’s a journey spanning several months. Like any long-term commitment, give yourself and the experience time to unfold. Expect ups and downs, highs and lows – it’s all part of the ride.

Keep the Lines of Communication Open.

If you encounter any challenges, be upfront and honest with your supervisor. Effective communication is key to addressing issues and improving your experience. Don’t forget to share your wins too! Your supervisor will appreciate knowing what you enjoy and what you find challenging.

See Challenges as Opportunities.

View obstacles as chances for growth and development. Whether it’s tackling difficult projects or adapting to new routines, each challenge presents an opportunity to learn and evolve. Embrace these moments as valuable learning experiences.

Take Time to Reflect.

Set aside time daily or weekly to reflect on your progress. Think about what went well, what was challenging, and what you learned along the way. Regular reflection will help you pinpoint areas for improvement and make the most out of your internship experience.
