You would be thinking how we can prove ourselves on the very first day of Internship. I am going to explain it through this blog to give you guys more insights about how to impress your Boss and colleagues on the first day of your Internship Program.
Just follow me till the end so that you can get the benefit in many different ways on getting noticed on the first day of your Internship. There are many Do’s and Don’ts which every intern should keep in mind so that they get the desired learning without any loss.
Follow these simple ‘Do’s’, and you shall be on their good books: –
Prepare an elevator pitch beforehand
The best way to introduce yourself on the first day would be to prepare an elevator pitch beforehand so that you don’t have to think again and again about introducing yourself to different persons. This will help you to make a good impression on your Managers and Colleagues on the very first day.
Flaunt the punctual streak in you
One of the most important factor to consider is showing up early on the first day because this will show how disciplined you are and ultimately will give a nice image of you. If needed, get a trial commute before the joining date so that you get an idea of when to start and how to reach.
Keep in mind that in the initial days you have to just notice how the things are going on in your office environment. Ask questions to the seniors as much as possible because if you did something on your own, no one will be responsible for that act but you. Keep track of how the system works in the office.
Communicate, smile & be humble
The best way to get hold of the things is to make good conversations with the office mates during the break or lunch. Try to understand how they keep the work life balance. Also if they have some sports complex or someplace to leisure after office, go along with them and make good bonding with them.
Be careful of these ‘Don’ts’, save yourself from being tagged in the bad books : –
Don’t jump onto the conclusion in a blink of an eye
Maybe you will find many awkward things on the first day if you haven’t worked before or not in this type of environment, don’t react or get emotional. Just observe as I mentioned above because you are new and don’t know the reason why these things are into picture. I will suggest you to KEEP CALM AND RELAX.
Learning never stops, it is always constant
It’s possible that you won’t be getting any work for the first day or not that much as you expected, don’t panic or overreact. They are giving you time to get settled down and make yourself comfortable to handle the work further. If you get some work and you are done with it on time, don’t sit idle. Go to your industry mentor and show them your work and get along some notes copy or some piece of paper to note down the corrections, if any. If you are done with that work, then ask for another one. Learning should not stop. Keep in mind that it your lifetime opportunity to learn under no pressure.
It is never a crime to look good & maybe just a little formal fancy
Till you are not acquainted with the dressing behavior of the organization, it is advisable to wear a formal dress and you can change it according to the environment that runs inside.
Take Control on Emotions
Don’t talk or laugh too much on the first day as you are not aware of the behavior of the fellow colleagues. Try to avoid cracking jokes on anyone if you are used to it for others. Because its an professional place, just smile and do your work.
