Communicate

Be on alert! (Check your emails, and messages; reply when seen)

Don’t be afraid to ask questions

Talk to your team members regularly.

Double Check your Work

Reiterate the assigned job to the person who assigned it to you, and make sure have the correct steps and requirements to make sure you are using your time for the benefit of the team/ manager and also yourself.

Go the Extra Mile

Stand out! Predict the next steps of the assigned job, think and do a little more than required, volunteer to do extra than what is given to you.

Make the most of the opportunity!

Follow Directions

Make sure you know exactly what you need to do! Follow your notes and keep track of your work. (tip within a tip: take notes when you’re given directions and keep them organised)

Stay Professional

It’s perfectly fine to share your life story, but keep in mind that you walk a fine line. An intern should keep any room for negative judgement away from the employer. Some comments or stories about your weekend may not be appropriate. Keep those stories outside of internships, wait till you are official  😀
