Fortune: Advice on impressing your boss

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)
