This post is written by Sam George, intern on Cision’s social media team. He started Oct. 1, relocating from London to Chicago, and will be interning here for a year.
I admit it was scary business starting up a new internship, particularly in a foreign country. I created some sort of expectation in the back of my mind; I knew what I wanted to achieve from the internship, I relocated 4000 miles for a reason, and with ambitions. But with the science of hindsight, there are a few pieces of advice I would like to impart – things to focus on in those first few weeks that will resonate throughout your internship, no matter what industry you’re in:
I’ve been here a month and I am nicely settled. I’ve gotten to know people inside the office (and a few outside), have a good run down of the company, how things tend to work, who’s who, and what’s what, and I hope you experience the same at your internship. It’s now time to start thinking as the company, for the company, and for your industry. Think from within, learn from without.
