What should I know for an internship?
I asked a similar question about what should I know for shadowing, and, well, this is very similar. Do I need to have extensive knowledge of the field that I internship for, or should I treat it as a learning experience where I go in with familiarity of the field, but still have many questions? By questions, I'm referring more to knowledge-based questions such as "oh, and what does this machine or piece of technology do?" and "I'm not familiar with that terminology, what does that mean?" as opposed to reference-based questions like "where do you keep this object?" and "what floor of the building is this room?"
I encourage the opinions of doctors and other STEM field professionals.
