Be an intern stunner instead of a coffee runner.
Another way that you can make the most out of your internship experience is by asking to be a part of projects and meetings that interest you.

If you just sit around waiting for someone to give you something to do, you'll likely be stuck with photocopy and coffee duty.

Stay in the loop on big projects going on in your department. Even if you don't remain at your company, this will give you applicable knowledge and experience when you are looking for a full-time job.

End your internship like a pro

 The impression you leave on the last day of your internship is just as important as the first day-if not more. Follow these tips to end on good terms:

End on a good note!

Remember to say "thank you." Say goodbye to everybody you worked with during your internship. A hand-written thank-you note and even a parting gift can go a long way in leaving a lasting impression.

If you put your professional game face on every day of your internship, you will be much more likely to gain valuable skills, experience, and connections.

Ace your internship like you aced your interview and you will be one step closer to your dream job.
