If as an intern you’re able to prove your worth and value, the organization may be keen on retaining you as well.

It’s a good idea to inquire after possible openings and positions that may be of interest to you. Look for the people that you can build relationships with, ranging from juniors to seniors to veterans.

Even if your internship is not a positive experience, you will learn how to recognize what roadblocks, politics, and poor organization culture look like. These are very critical too and will help you know what you do NOT want in the future.

These are a few ways to maximize your internship experience.
