Sep 24, 2019

You will never know what work life feels like until you actually get hired and experience it yourself. Or so you thought.

Thanks to internships, you don’t have to wait until you earn your college degree to get the feel of your future work! As an intern, you’ll be able to apply what you learned in class to real-life work situations. (Hopefully, minus the stress that comes with it.) Not to mention, meeting possible workmates in the office! How cool is that?

Every internship experience is unique. While you can’t always “choose your battles” at work like who your boss is going to be, how your workmates will treat you, or what your tasks will be like, you can choose what type of intern you will be. And tbh, that makes all the difference! First, find out where you stand, so you know what skills and qualities you should work on to be the intern you want to be.

Take this quiz to find out which type of intern you are!

Which Type of Student Intern Are You?

You are THE FAVORITE intern!

Just one day in at work and everyone in the office knows your name. Why wouldn’t they when you’re all over the place introducing yourself and cracking jokes? Your positive vibe and sense of humor brighten up a stressful day in the office.

When it comes to work, you don’t play around. You get your game face on and give it your best. That’s why your boss and workmates love having you around!

When all eyes are on you, pressure starts to creep in. That’s normal! Know that even then, it’s okay to ask for help! Get on the phone with your trusted college friends for a quick motivation boost.

You are THE OVERACHIEVER intern!

Nobody knows hard work like you do. You got your eyes on the prize, and you’re convinced there’s no other way to go through your internship than giving it your 150% effort. You even treat extra work and overtime as opportunities for growth!

While your co-interns are in it for the experience, you are in it for the skills you’ll gain for your future career. Did you know your boss and workmates secretly call you the “model intern”? High five!

Take a break from work, work, work once in a while. De-stress your mind from a long tiring week with these fun activities!

You got THE CHILL intern!

So here’s the thing: you aren’t exactly the model intern. With all the tardiness and missed deadlines. Yikes! But don’t be mistaken. While you may seem like a square peg in a round hole, you might have a knack for doing things your way. You have diskarte that others could only wish they have. You have grit, and it shows!

While your workmates often misunderstand you for slacking off at work, you’re simply learning through each day the best way you know how. And mind you, your boss sees great potential in you. So should you!

Unleash your potential. Develop these important soft skills that will help you thrive in your future career! You got this.

You got THE CARING intern!

You may have signed up for an internship, but you’re really out to be a Mother Teresa to your co-interns and workmates. More than the intern work, your sole mission is to meet new friends and extend a helping hand wherever it’s needed. And the whole office appreciates you for it! 

When the going gets tough a.k.a. work piles up, people know they can count on you—whether it’s finishing a report or ordering your team dinner.

Looking out for others is great, but don’t forget to take care of yourself, too. Keep yourself healthy! Check out this beginner guide to being fit and healthy.

You got THE BUNSO intern!

You may or may not be the youngest among the interns, but you are *no doubt* the most youthful intern in the pack. Just imagine the energy you bring to the office! Your charm and innocence make work light and fun. Plus, your workmates a.k.a. ates and kuyas find it easy to guide you in your internship. Thanks to your natural curiosity and love of learning!

Leadership knows no age. Develop your leadership skills now! Take a cue from these girl bosses on how you can take your leadership to the next level. Check this out!

It’s your first day at work! How would you introduce yourself?

You’re having a hard time with your tasks. What do you do?

When you’re not busy with work, you are most probably…

You found out your officemates are working overtime tonight. You…

Drum rolls, please! Your performance evaluation came. What did it say?

What’s the highlight of your internship?
