You got the internship! Congratulations. Now you need to think about how to translate your experience building relationships, demonstrating your ability to take feedback, learn and contribute so you are offered a position when you graduate.
Just as you worked so hard to land your internship, you want to continue that momentum and hard work to convert that opportunity into a full-time role. The internship is not only an opportunity for you to gain valuable experience and learn more about a company. What we have come to understand is that many students misunderstand that this is also a chance to evaluate if you are a good fit for a permanent role.
Check out these resources to help you think about and prepare yourself for your ultimate objective. Working with your coach at points throughout the internship can also help you navigate this. Schedule an appointment with your coach here in Handshake or here in WPC Connect.
