After getting your high school diploma, four years of college may seem like another journey with multiple hurdles along the way. By the time anyone becomes a senior, they realize that college actually goes by extremely quickly. College life is short term and a bachelor’s degree is a stepping stone towards success.
Your journey does not stop there, which is why most students try to find jobs, or internships, during the course of these four years. Internships allow you to showcase your talents. Treat internships like full time jobs. Before employment, everyone should aim to do an internship. To your own benefit, an internship will allow you to get a taste of the real world and what office life is. Statistically speaking, 85% of AIP interns get full time job offers after their internship ends. After all, the goal of an internship is to land full time employment.
Not everything can be learned in a classroom setting. A role that interests you will give you the urge to challenge yourself. If you are lucky you will realize which career path you want to pursue right after your internship ends. Do keep in mind that your career has only just begun.
There are many ways to be a good intern at the workplace. These suggestions might be some techniques to improve self-personality that you can follow.
The end goal of every intern is to hopefully, one day, land a job at the firm or company that they interned for. How interns perform is obviously the most important factor in getting a job offer. However, what are some of the other key points that will help turn internships into a job offer?
Performing well is the deciding vote in this argument. Showcase your talents and the company will want to hire you. Distinguish yourself, as an individual, and let your employers know that you are irreplaceable. The real question is, what makes you so unique? When you become an intern, you will immediately notice a huge difference between college and work life. In an office setting, being open-minded will make your life easier.
You will face real life problems that you’ve yet to encounter. Remember to show integrity. This proves that you do not give up easily and will fight your way through. To do this, believe in yourself and your abilities to succeed. After all, your employers hired you because they see your potential to succeed. That is a very important element that employers look for, when distinguishing interns and full time employees.
Some of these factors will be the determinants on whether you will be accepted as a full time employee, or not. Having strong interpersonal skills with high quality work ethics will definitely turn an internship into a job offer. Most importantly, you will have to figure yourself out and what you want to do. Explore your many passions and go for the one that “sticks”. Always seize opportunities, they don’t come to you everyday.
Offering internships all year round, and in various destinations, this is your chance to seize the opportunity and make good use out of it. AIP internships are designed to allow the intern to utilize their skillsets in a professional working environment. This way, you'll be able to learn self reliance and independence while taking in all the necessary knowledge for individual growth.
