You intern to gain experience, and to also get a job. Right?
Even if the internship you are vying for doesn’t lead to a job, you should know how to leave an impression with your superior. You never know if you need a letter of recommendation in the future, or someone to add as a reference on your resume.
So how do you leave a lasting impression?
Fortune offered five ways to do so:
- Challenge EVERYTHING
- Don’t bring problems. Bring solutions.
- Be a team player
- Get engaged
- Think outside of your department (i.e. you want to be a reporter? you should still think of ways to tell your story digitally/offer ideas to the web department)
