In some somber teenage moment, we’ve all probably been told by someone, “You can do anything you want in life!” Confidence like that can make entry level work difficult to put up with. All of the sudden it feels like you’re watching dreams drift away as you run to pick up yet another coffee order. But what if that’s all a part of the story? How can you know if you’re just wasting your time or investing in something bigger?
We sit down with our CEO for 15 minutes each week to get practical business advice so we can advance in our careers. On this episode, we chat about what to do if you wanna quit your internship…
- Bad internships suck but try to stick it out because you can put a completed one on your resume
- Ask your manager for other things to do
- Keep in mind, you’re new to the company. That usually means that you’re stuck with more entry level work while you climb the food chain
- Focus on growing your network while you’re there
