You’ve landed your first internship + you’re so excited you could scream it from the rooftops! For some, this is enough to get excited about, but for others, you’re wondering, how do I make this turn into a job?
Here are three tips from MaryGrace, our newest intern-turned-Buzz Coordinator, on how to land that first full-time position:
- Be grateful for the internship. Yes, everyone wants that full-time job, but remember that you’re just starting out and should show your appreciation for the opportunity that you’ve been given.
- Learn as much as you can about your company or agency (clients, past coverage, history, etc.), so you’re prepared for anything and everything that you will be tasked with.
- Think of ideas that could potentially benefit your company or a client. This could mean events, new ways to network, or anything in between. This is a good step to show you take initiative.
These are just three small ideas, but they can be the starting steps in transitioning your internship into a job. You’ve got this!
