Intern Do's & Don'ts

Ok- so my AH internship isn't my first one, and over the years through both regular jobs and other internships, I've learned the do's and don'ts of any employee, but especially interns... Internships aren't just jobs; they're your first footsteps into a company. Therefore, you always want to put your best foot forward, and exude the utmost respect for the company for which you are working for. After all, we ultimately want to receive a full-time offer from the company.

So, here are some of the things I noticed other interns doing while on the job (this is mostly current):

  1. If you're scheduled to be at work at 9:00a, please don't show up 9:27a expecting a pat on the back.
  2. If your lunch break is supposed to be 30 minutes, please don't take an hour and a half to eat a taco!
  3. If the office seems rather busy and you finish your work early, ALWAYS ask if there is more work to be done.
  4. When the company gives you gifts i.e. sporting event tickets, please don't ask for more so that you can take your friend for their upcoming birthday!
  5. School comes first, no matter what! So don't sit in the office bragging about how much of a slacker you are. Remember, everyone there already has an education, and they're looking for MORE people like them!
  6. Remember, you are always representing the company whether you're at work or not. So act like it.
  7. Never participate in office gossip... it could be the death of you, and your employment!
  8. Just because the receptionist tells you to help yourself to the supply closet, don't take it upon yourself to restock your bookbag for the next two semesters!
  9. Employers (most of them) have all been in your shoes, and most of them have done the same work that you are doing. If you're given a task that should ordinarily take about an hour to complete, do not turn that into a full day of work.
  10. Don't ask if it's ok to leave work at 3:30p, but still put 5p on your timecard. Why would you even do that if you aren't working for that extra hour and a half??? I mean, that's soooo unethical!!!!
Those are just a few of my issues with interns... but I'm sure as the summer progresses, there will definitely be more.
