Make the Most of Your Internship

Categorized in:

As most undergrads and recent college graduates know, landing an internship is an exciting time. Internships can provide you with valuable experience and, in some cases, lead to your first “real” job. My college professors and parents always told me to “do something you enjoy and you’ll never work a day in your life.” When I happily accepted the Public Relations Intern position with IPR I was hoping that I would enjoy the work I would be doing.

Before my first day at IPR I was nervous; my mind was filled with questions like “What will I be doing?,” “Who will I be working with?” and “What will the work environment be like?”. Of course, during the interview process, the overarching duties of the internship were explained to me, but I was still nervous about the type of client work I would be doing.

Since the first day of my internship, I’ve been given plenty of interesting, exciting work and have been assisting account executives and supervisors with various client work. For those of you out there hoping to get the most out of your PR internship here are some things I hope you’ll find useful.

An internship is a great experience and it will provide you with a readiness to enter the  “real” world, so make the most of it!
