During your internship, you'll be evaluated more so on your soft skills rather than technical skills. That means they're always looking at your behavior and attitude. If you're enthusiastic and coachable, you can learn anything that they'll need you to do.


That said, you need to take a good look around at the people and the work itself and see if you'll be happy/content working there. An internship is like a trial run for the company, it's not the end all be all of your career starting point.


Always take notes. For everything. Every little thing.


And remember, you're always going to be your harshest critic... don't be hard on yourself in the beginning. A positive workplace knows that this is your first time working there so they won't hold unreasonable expectations over you.

The biggest lesson I have learned is to take advantage of every opportunity. When you have the title "intern", people are more willing to take time out of their day to talk with you and teach you new things. Expand your network and learn as much as possible.

Go in with an open mind willing to try anything that is presented to you. Don't be afraid to ask questions. Learn as much as you. You will find that this experience will be invaluable to you as you begin to look for a full-time job. Your performance could land you a job offer. If you decided to look at other companies your intership will show you have valuable experience that other applicants may not have.
