3 Ways to Make the Most out of Your Internship


Whether the internship is paid or unpaid, learning is priceless. I’ve interned for multiple companies that had great programs that kept me busy working on meaningful work, and learning through hands-on experience. Good internship programs made me feel like I was actually in my field and made me feel like I was a part of the company. On the other hand, I’ve experienced un-productive internships where I just felt like a number and someone who was taking up space. Some companies design their program to help students get experience and others hire students to help with administration duties. But companies aren’t always to blame for your bad experience. Although some companies made it easier for me to learn the skill, I learned that in programs that weren’t as structured, it was up to me to make the most out of my time.

1.      Help out with other departments: If cross-departmental work is an option, try exploring other roles in the company. Internships are all about learning and what better way to learn than to step outside the box. If cross-departmental work is an option

2.      Ask your manager for more work-Sometimes managers might think that you can or even want to help out with more responsibility. Asking your manager not only shows initiative but it also shows them that you value your experience and time with the company.

3.      Create your own projects- Creating your own research and work project allows you to develop problem-solving skills and shows both current and future employers that you can contribute new ideas to their company.

Learning doesn’t always come in the form of what it says in the job description. In my experiences, I realized that you have to make your own to-do list and speak up for yourself, not only to show that you value your time but for the sake of the program’s future. Some organizations aren’t aware of how the program is working until you let them know. That sets you apart from other interns because it shows that you care about learning and the company.
