How can students make the most of their college internships?
Internships are your single best tool for getting a job offer upon graduation. However, too many college students waste this opportunity and hurt future employment chances instead. Treat your internship as a serious job. Some things should go without saying—arrive on time, dress in accordance with the office standard, work hard while you are there, and strive to make a good impression without sucking-up. Next, use the opportunity to make connections at your internship and in the field. Attend meeting for professional organizations and local networking groups. You will leave your internship with great experience, knowledge about the industry, and plenty of professional connections.
