Description

The purpose of this presentation is to examine the multiple ways to be successful while working at an internship. It will look beyond the obvious such as doing what is expected of you and dive more in depth into items such as how to properly apply for an internship. Also it will cover what to do in the interview process and also how to get the most out of your experience once you have your internship while standing out among the rest of your colleagues. Many college students start searching for an internship without being prepared or knowing what to expect. For every little thing that is not done to get what you want, the odds of getting what you want diminish. This presentation will help clarify the important actions to take while obtaining an internship. It will also cover the more subtle ideas that will help students make the internship the most successful opportunity possible. The presentation will be supported by related literature and research, previous experience, manager interviews as well as interviews from interns past and present. It will cover topics such as change management, proper communication, networking, and career building.
