HOW AN INTERNSHIP WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE!
We are probably in that phase when we feel like we are ready to work or the school just requires us to attend an industrial attachment for good grading. Either way, you will be required to gain some experience in you field of study or whatever you are passionate about. Here are some of the reasons why you should have already started looking for an internship:
Co- workers will be more than workmates- Working will teach you how to relate with different kind of characters. The workplace is like another home where you are constantly working alongside each other to make things work in the household. Teamwork and communication is hence very important. Friendships and relationships are also conceived at work. These are people that you will spend most of your hours with so you might as well start referring to them as your second family. They keep learning about your strengths and weaknesses as time goes by.
Gets you ready for future jobs- One of the things that is guaranteed when you start your journey into the business world is that you learn the dynamics of a workplace or a company. You also gain a lot of experience and hence become competent in your field of study. All the skills and experience gained puts you ahead of your peers and other people seeking employment in a very competitive world.
You will learn time management- Apart from reducing your stress levels, time management helps you get things done. Of course, being productive is one of the main goals of great time management. At work and in life you will be known as reliable. No one is going to question whether you are going to show up, do what you say you are going to do, or meet that deadline.
You’ll explore new things- Interns get to do anything and everything most of the times. You will not find it cool that you keep being pulled to different departments every now and then. But what you may not realize is that you are getting a taste of different worlds and learning how to do multiple things at the same time. Take advantage of this and explore things that you never thought of ever knowing about. Besides, the more multi-skilled you are the more opportunities for you.
You will learn to build yourself- You will need to gather all the skills that are thrown at your way. Every mistake is a lesson and an opportunity for growth. You need to remember that your work will have an impact on the organization. You’re learning in an active, real-world environment, so your contributions affect other people.
