Create a Positive Image of Yourself

Here are some tips to help strengthen your image as an intern:

  • Arrive at work on time and resist the urge to leave early.
  • When communicating with other employees, be professional. Avoid gossip about other employees and complaining about your work.
  • Dress in a professional manner.
  • When things get stressful, stay optimistic.
  • Develop a support network of co-workers. Include a variety of people in this network: your supervisor, other interns, support staff, and professionals in other departments.
