Stage 1: Excitement, Eagerness and Enthusiasm
Three months ago, I walked out of Kenan Stadium at UNC Chapel Hill where I was one of 35,000 graduates and their families to hear Steve Case, co-founder of AOL, encourage us to go out into the world and seek opportunity. So, in typical Gen Y fashion, I left commencement inspired and ready to get out there, eager to make a difference.
I've been speaking with my Intern Queen Ambassador Alumni - who are now employed at some of the nation's leading companies all over the US. I've been asking them about their experiences in the real world. I wanted to share some thoughts from a former intern and Intern Queen Ambassador (from Towson), Alicia Valko, who now works at Jack Morton.
1. Don't be afraid to reach out to people and set up informational interviews. Alicia says these helped her grow her professional network. They helped her get her foot in the door for opportunities down the road.
I'm so excited to be featured on this cool site, Her Agenda. In my interview, I talk about some of the challenges and exciting opportunities that I experienced as Intern Queen transformed from a cute idea into a viable business. Read the entire interview to learn about how I dealt with rejection and transitioned from an intern to a CEO. Of course, I’ll leave you with my best advice for today’s intern!
