Like any Internship, Winter Internships in 2017 are a great way to test a career path before you get going. These internship opportunities provide enough learnings and teachings to an intern. While we have been beating this same drum ever since, we are here to suggest a few things that you should be doing while you are pursuing Winter Internships in 2017.
Learn The Art Of Acceptance
Internships teach you to accept; accept that your life is transiting from a comfortable phase to a new brutal one (reality). Internships let you accept both criticism and praise. You learn to accept the hidden professional sense of conduct in you. Learn to make it a habit of accepting whatever feedback you are given in life. Accept your bonus points and polish them. Accept your shortcomings and work harder on them.
Developing your Network in a professional setup is another level of networking which will come handy in the coming years of your life–professional and personal. Not only you have new recommendations for your future endeavours, but you have new friends and people you like to relate with. Remember to thank each of them as you complete your internship. Make sure you make enough efforts to stay in touch with them– you never know who can be helpful and when.
Embrace Your Individuality
Earlier you were a part of your class. Whatever you did was done by everyone. You gave the same exams, scored almost the same- you either failed or passed. This time it is not the same. Your role is peculiar to you. In a Winter Internship in 2017, you will learn how to do your own work, your way. You will learn plenty of things about yourself as well. Internships let you discover your individuality, your skills, your choices, preferences and an understanding of your future career goals.
