Describe your experience? Anybody staying on part-time? Anybody have a lead on a permanent job?
Please be sure to check the gradebook for any unanswered discussion questions or missing status reports. The final powerpoint is due August 7. Your eportfolio page should also be completed at that time. If you only have a small paragraph for your eportfolio page you will not receive credit for it. I would like to see a separate page dedicated to your internship with a substantial description about what you did during your internship.
Just a reminder that the PowerPoint draft is due tomorrow.
What lessons did you learn during your internship that you just couldn’t learn in the classroom or from a textbook?
What have you learned in the classroom that you have leveraged in your internship? Please respond by commenting to this post.
Please check the gradebook to see if you are missing any assignments. You will have a NO if I have not received it from you and it is past due.
It’s hard to balance your schoolwork and your internship. Tell us how you are handling it and what tips you have for keeping it all together.
What are the most important skills (business/technical) and people that you have discovered in your internship? Is there a skill that you didn’t have before but realize that you absolutely need? Is there a person that you discovered that you definitely want on your side (besides your boss of course)?
I hope everyone is learning a lot in your internship. Here is question #2. Please comment on this and feel free to respond to other’s comments as well.
What are some of the important things that you had to find out on your own–having to do with the company culture and/or things you wouldn’t normally think you have to ask for…finding the bathroom, finding where to get coffee in the morning, etc?
For the powerpoint outline you may submit to me a one page word document basically listing what you will cover in your powerpoint in bullet format. Your draft then will be your rough slides in powerpoint.
Let me know if you have any questions.
I hope everyone is off to a good start at your internships. We have a bunch of students doing internships this summer and participating in this forum. Please feel free to respond to one another student here if you have questions or comments.
The first question is easy: Where will you be working/worked? What will you be doing/did?
Please post a comment to this post and share with everyone what some of your responsibilities will be/were. Others may have questions or may be doing the same types of things.
Please be sure that your user ID is your name and not your TU email alias and also that you have an avatar. We want to know who is posting.
Also if you have not started yet that is fine. Please email me and let me know when you start. You can then answer this question once you start.
