"I thoroughly enjoyed my internship this summer and now have very valuable experience under my belt.
I know this will help when looking for jobs and needing references.
When I first started interning, I was intimidated and nervous to ask too many questions because I didn’t want to admit that I didn’t understand or that I needed extra help with something.
Luckily I got over that fear quickly because asking questions is the only way to learn what you are really supposed to be doing.
I felt in the beginning that I would really have a head start being that I am a senior and have taken all my classes already but I realized that I don’t think any amount of classes will ever prepare you for all the world has to offer.
Don’t get me wrong, I feel that Auburn did a wonderful job teaching me but I feel that it is most valuable if combined with first hand work .
I feel that during my time interning my most challenging part of my work was having to share my tasks and coordinate my work with others.
I have always been kind of a perfectionist and liked to have things done my way so working with others and sharing duties was a slight change I must say.
I feel that quality internships are essential to develop key skills that you can't get in a classroom.
Skills such as multitasking, communicating, learning to deal with diversity, and dealing with deadlines are different when you are working for someone else, not yourself like you do in college.
