Top 5: How to be an intern

Danielle Livingston, Managing Editor

  1. Cry

Because of everything you must do, because you have no idea what you’re doing, because that is the only thing you can do.

  1. Fake it until you make it

Fake your confidence and that you know what you’re doing until you make it. You may just end up faking it the whole time.

  1. Wonder what you got yourself into

A lot.

  1. Forget everything that makes you, you

Because being an intern is now your identity. You are no longer Devin, you are the intern. The internship consumes you. If you accept that, it may also accept you.

  1. Remember that you’re just an intern

And that the real world is much harder.
