Take Pictures During Your Internship

Posted by on May 13, 2015 in Internships

Steve JobsYou know what a lot of interns forget to do during their internship? Take pictures. You should take pictures during your internship?

Why?

Well, your internship is likely going to be part of your personal legend, your origin story. When you run for President and they do the documentary about how you got your start, you’re going to want to have some early photos of that time you started as an intern in XYZ place.

Some people will go back to the places where they got their start, when they are older, to recreate photos – but those are never as genuine or compelling.

Get some photos from the very beginning – your future self will thank you.

Pay Attention to the CC During Your Internship

Posted by on May 12, 2015 in Internships

Reply AllSo…this falls under the category of one of those habits/skills that most professionals should have in the workplace, but often don’t.

Which means, as an intern, this is something you should get used to doing from the get-go.

If you get an email in the workplace and the sender has added somebody to the cc line, there is probably a reason they have. Which means, when you reply, you should keep whoever is copied on the chain copied.

The only exceptions to this are:

1) When it’s a big group email and you obviously don’t want to cc 9000 people on your individual response.

2) When you are sure you understand why the person who has been cc’d has been cc’d, and you have a specific, good reason to leave them off the reply. If you leave them off the cc, it might even be worth explaining why you’ve done that in the text of the email.

Otherwise, it just seems like you’re being careless with the reply/reply-all button. Don’t be a careless intern; be a careful one!
