How to Make the Most of Your Summer Internship – Part II

In my first posting, I posted five of my top ten tips on “How to Make the Most of Your Summer Internship.”  If you didn’t check it out, do it now!  It has great content for both summer interns and working professionals alike.  And if you don’t, you’ll be missing some great advice!  So, without further adieu, this week, I’m polishing off the top ten list with tips #6-#10: 

Tip #6  Conduct Informational InterviewsNot only do informational interviews serve as an excellent avenue for primary industry and company research, but one that is well planned can even lead to potential job interviews.  So reach out to colleagues and other professionals within your organization and conduct informational interviews with them to learn more about their positions.

 

 

Tip #7  Build Your Professional NetworkIn your internship, you’ll be surrounded by professionals in your field of interest so take the initiative and network with them.  Ask them to lunch.  Attend social networking events.  Be a presence at intern socials.  Now is the time to make the important connections that could lead to a full-time job offer so don’t miss out on your best opportunity to build your professional network.

 

 

Tip #8  Solicit Professional References and Letters of RecommendationYou should solicit professional references and letters of recommendation before the end of your internship as you’ll definitely need them during the interview process for a full-time position and even for future internships!  Be sure to only ask individuals who can provide you with a positive recommendation and can give specific examples of your performance and character traits.  And try to use an indirect approach when soliciting them.  Doing so politely provides individuals with the ability to decline if they feel they cannot provide you with a positive recommendation or reference.

 

 

Tip #9  Prepare for Your Exit InterviewThis is not only your opportunity to receive constructive feedback on your overall internship experience from your supervisor, but also your turn to re-cap your internship highlights to them and discuss potential “next steps.”  To do so, you’ll need to have an updated copy of your résumé that showcases all of your internship accomplishments, responsibilities, and completed projects.  So be prepared and get your résumé together in advance of this meeting.

 

 

Tip #10  Leave on a Positive NoteLeave on a positive note by hand-writing a “thank you” note to your supervisor and colleagues.
