Ask the Intern Queen: I’m So Scared of Internships…

InternQueen

Q: Have you personally done any internships?

A: Hi Jordyn,

Thanks for being so honest. Internships can be scary but I can tell you from personal experience that they are well worth it. I did 15 internships – that’s where I came up with the title of “Intern Queen”. No one needs to do 15 internships but I do suggest 2 internships before you graduate college. If you are considering leaving a full-time job to intern, that’s a big step. Keep in mind that many employers limit their internships to students. Many adults enroll in nearby colleges just so they can officially take on an internship. Also, remember there are no guarantees – an internship is a learning experience and not a job. Regardless, internships are a great way to learn a new industry, build your resume, and build your rolodex. If you do have a full-time job, I would suggest first setting informational meetings with potential employers. Perhaps you can even take a day off to job shadow. Start with baby steps. Make sure you do what’s right for you.

Good luck!
Lauren Berger
