Prepare for Your Internship  In the past, having an internship on your resume distinguished you from other students and gave you a  competitive edge in the job market. Because the majority of today's graduating students have completed at  least one internship, it's more important than ever to maximize your internship experiences in order to  distinguish yourself from other interns and learn as much as you can to prepare you for future experiences.  The following provides a list of suggested activities that will help you get ready for day one. Attitude is one of the most important factors going into an internship and successful interns  demonstrate the ability to be proactive and an eagerness to learn.  Interns should also demonstrate a hunger for knowledge, the ability to ask good questions, and to  be open minded.  Interns should make good use of their networking opportunities, be flexible, and be comfortable  dealing with ambiguity.  Successful interns are energetic, dynamic, able rise to a challenge, and seek to learn everything  they can.  Interns should also come to their first day prepared by having a solid understanding of the  organization, its key functions and clients, and its chief competitors.
