Summertime is the perfect time for college students to enter the internship world and get some experience up their sleeves. Personally, I saw my options as: work hard and prepare for your future or be lazy and eat your summer away.
Before landing my internship at Wonacott, I was honestly quite scared. What would interning be like? I’d never had one before so my theories were based entirely on anecdotes from my peers. Some friends told me that their experience consisted of fetching coffee, driving their bosses to the airport and filing papers, while others said that long hours and stress were definitely part of the package. I had no idea what to expect.
Looking back, my time at Wonacott flew by so quickly that it’s difficult to recall every detail. I learned a lot though, which is one reason why I want to provide you with a few tips and learnings that I think can help prepare you for your internship.
