3 Career Lessons I Learned From Our Interns
I have a special place in my heart for interns and all the optimism and fresh perspective they bring to the job. With college students finishing up their internships and getting ready to go back to school, I recently reflected on the unique value that internships offer for both the student and the company.
There’s no doubt internships can be incredibly valuable to students in terms of helping inform what they want their careers to be. And as importantly, what they don’t want their careers to be. I’ve written in past blogs about how two internships shaped my career in a significant way. The first one – at a major Wall Street law firm – showed me that despite the prestige and great money the job offered, I actually wanted to launch my career in a different way. And I arrived at that conclusion because my other internship, at a global multi-line insurance company in Connecticut, offered me immediate exposure to many areas of the business and allowed me to gain more substantive responsibilities much more quickly.
