Internships don’t always go as planned. Maybe you got a little too tipsy at the after-work happy hour, or you keep missing meetings. Despite what you might think, it may be possible to turn it all around and get a full-time offer.
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 your internship goes south…
- Internships are undoubtedly one of the best ways to get a job
- Keep in mind that everything you do as an intern will be analyzed (that includes after-hours social events)
- If you do screw up, be sure to apologize as soon as you can. Admitting fault can go a long way.
- If you manage interns, be sure you call out what is ok and is not ok. People can’t improve if they aren’t given any feedback.
