If you want to get your foot in the door, then you have to be proactive and you have to be smart.
During my internship, I was doing all the tasks required of me but, at the same time, I was doing my own reading, writing my own scripts, and asking for feedback from my very kind supervisor. It’s about being proactive. If you want to get your foot in the door, then you have to be proactive and you have to be smart.
It’s been a remarkable experience. I’ve really learned to calm down and not think too much about what the future might hold.
You have to find ways to make yourself busy and always be willing to learn and ask questions. I’ve made so many great connections here and I think that’s more important than anything.
