This is a Q&A with our Intern Queen Campus Ambassador from Ohio University, Sandhya.
1. What are your three must-have items for an internship?
A notepad, a healthy breakfast, and a watch. Start your day off right with breakfast so you’re not left hungry early on. I always eat breakfast so I’m full and energized and ready to learn new skills. I always carry a notepad and take notes on new things I learn. It’s a must have because next time you need to get something or complete a project, you won’t have to ask your boss because you’ll have it all in your notebook! The third must have is a watch. If you like to know what time it is or need to meet with your boss at a certain time, a watch is the best solution. The best part about them is that you’re not checking your phone or looking at the computer clock.
2. What are your three must visit websites each day?
When I get onto the Internet I check three things: my email, my Twitter, and the NY Times. Checking your email is an absolute must because you never know when someone is going to contact you! I always visit my Twitter & the NY Times website to keep up with the current events and also hear what people are saying. It’s a great way to keep yourself informed & have something to talk about!
3. What kind of cell phone do you have?
4. Age-old question: Mac or PC?
Mac. Especially for journalism students! It’s the best for editing. But it’s good to know both!
5. What has been your favorite part about being an Intern Queen Campus Ambassador?
My favorite part has been spreading the message of how valuable internships are. I think it’s a great idea that people can learn about all the different majors, internships, and experiences people are having by reading the blog posts. I love the fact that people from my school also have the opportunity to blog and share their experiences with others. The network of the Campus Ambassadors is so diverse and broad, which I think makes Intern Queen the perfect website for anyone looking to find the internship that’s perfect for them.
