PROOF READING


Don’t assume spell check is always fool-proof, always proofread your own work. When you’re given the 10th piece to check for your boss, don’t complain. Proof reading is an important skill and showing enthusiasm for any task (even re-reading 2000 words on hedge funds or the politics of the EU) is vital to a successful internship.


Being an intern is all about gaining invaluable experience and much of this comes from making mistakes and learning from them. Don’t be disheartened if you struggle with some of the workload or working out how to add a pie chart in Edexcel, it’s a learning process.


A MENTOR


Many companies will be full of employees happy to help you and offer you advice, make the most from this as this mentor represents huge amounts of experience that you can benefit from. Prove to your mentor that you have new ideas, initiative and a good work ethic. One day they may run the company, make them remember you.


MISTAKES


Most internships are only a few months long and as your time comes to an end you will genuinely miss that place, from the days chatting at the water cooler to those staring at a computer screen all day. Leave on a good note, a thank you and with tons of new personal and professional connections in hand.


IT’S END
