Internship Tips

In an article recently published by the National Career Development Association, Craig Ames discusses what he found out about internships by being an intern. This short introspective piece focuses on these 5 takeaways from his experience as a counseling intern:
  1. Your Academic Career Does Not Prepare You for the World of Work – It Prepares You for Your Internship.
  2. Be Humble. Be Teachable.
  3. Start Looking for Your Internship Site on the First Day of Your Program.
  4. Networking, Informational Interviews, and Job Shadowing Are Gateways to Internships – Just Like Internships are Gateways to Employment.
  5. Take Advantage of as Many Learning Opportunities at Your Internship Site as Possible.
