It’s one thing to talk about what you want to be when you grow up – it’s another to actually be the thing you talk so much about. Talking about something and doing something are very separate. One of the reasons I believe in internships so much is because they teach you about a certain field or industry and enable you to make an educated decision about whether or not you want to pursue that field after the internship.
Last week on our new site, LaurenBergerInc.com, we did a really great blog on popular healthy snacks to bring to work. I thought this would be a great fit for Internqueen.com as well since you can definitely bring these snacks to your internship. Check out our blog on 12 healthy snacks HERE

When you start any new job or internship you are expected to make mistakes and endure a learning curve of some sort. Most people take at least 2-3 months to adjust to any new internship or job opportunity. So during those “training” months your immediate supervisor is kind, understanding, and pretty gentile with you in terms of helping, guiding, and showing you the right way to do things. Ironically enough, it’s usually when you start to do things right consistently that the honeymoon phase ends.
