8 Tips For Your First Day At An Internship

From personal experience, the days before your first day at an internship or any job is absolutely terrifying. From prepping your clothes, to preparing your bag, to making sure your hair looks just right, you somehow find enough scenarios for everything that could possibly go wrong. These scenarios can create anxiety and lots of nervousness before the big day. Hopefully these following tips will help you prepare for your next opportunity!

1. Relax

It's going to be okay! New experiences are scary and it's normal to feel that you're not prepared. It's all a mindset. Breathe. Calm down. Tell yourself you will succeed because 99% of the time, everything you thought would happen never does. If you start to get crazy butterflies in your stomach, turn that into excitement. There's no reason in stressing out over an experience that hasn't happened yet.

2. Dress To Impress (But Don't Try Too Hard)

Ask what to wear to your first day! Is it Business formal? Business casual? Casual? Make sure that whatever they declare as dress code, you look professional. Ironing your clothes is a must. Brush your teeth and fix your hair. Shower and wear deodorant! Fix your makeup. Shine your shoes. Never go with a revealing outfit. Remember to brush up on new trends and styles. Things that you thought were in style may be old news. Also your geographic location plays a huge role in your dress code (New Yorkers and Californians dress differently for example). As they always say, dress for the job you want!

3. Do Your Research

Never walk into any internship knowing very little about your place of work. Obviously you were hired for a reason so don't miss out on that opportunity. Look up important people within the company and recognize their faces. Research career paths by past employees, hundreds of reviews of businesses are online nowadays. Social media is a tool you can use to your advantage! Know how to negotiate. Learn some fun facts to strike conversation. As always, be curious. Research will put you ahead of the game before your first day, make you seem more intelligent, and ease your nerves.

4. Know Your Place

You're about to embark on an internship that puts you at the bottom of the totem pole. You're about to learn the ropes. It's easy to get carried away with a sense of entitlement when you score that big internship over your friends. Never get cocky because odds are you'll be doing mindless tasks. Internships are as extravagant as they may seem and getting a big head will not only make you seem arrogant but someone who people don't want to work with. Also, if you come in with a big head, your new employer will not like you. Confidence is wonderful but don't over do it, especially on your first day.

5. Connect With Fellow Interns

Friends will save you. Your fellow interns are here to help you. Of course you want to be an individual to be noticed in the office however it's better to make friends with your fellow interns instead of isolating yourself. You'll be amazed by how many opportunities you'll find out about thanks to a fellow intern. You're here to help one another out and to learn from each other. You never know if the intern sitting next to you is going to be a huge success. Be friendly. Be helpful. And strive to reach that family bonding environment. You'll love your last day of work not because of the experience but because of the people.

6. Pack Lightly

Get rid of that backpack and huge purse. You don't need a book to bring. Check to see if your laptop is necessary. Is your entire makeup bag necessary? NO. Leave the clutter at home. A notebook and pen will always be a good idea. A change of clothes is always an option for some professions but a no-go for others. Your lunch bag should be able to fit comfortably in your bag and if you don't pack, a wallet is lighter. It's important to adjust to the rest of the office by packing lightly and then bringing what you need once you know your day-to-day.

7. Prepare Proper Transportation

Driving? Check commute times. Subway? Know what line you'll take. Train? Find the station. Walking? Prepare for weather and use proper shoes. Biking? Hopefully you're not bicycling up the hills. Flying in? Don't miss the flight. There's no excuse to be late so make sure your commute is reliable and efficient. Things can go wrong and all forms of transportation can break. Make sure you're first day is ready to go with the best route available.

8. Be On Time

Not a minute late. Early is ON TIME. On Time is LATE. Late is UNACCEPTABLE. No excuses.

So much yes to the transportation one! I would even try to route my way before the day I started, and navigate my way a couple days before, so I can visualize where to go, where to park, and what the daily commute would be like. :)
That dress to impress, but not too much is a great point. You have to dress for your audience, like if you're working for a law firm you're going to dress differently than if you're working for a laid back start up. Good points!
Ugh I got horribly lost on one of my first days! I was so embarrassed too...ugh. Not good. @nicolejb

Que tal peeps! WE ARE STILL COUNTING DOWN TO JUNGKOOK'S BIRTHDAY IN THE AMS COMMUNITY. THIS IS A QUICK FANFICTION THAT CONTAINS MATURE CONTENT! Jungkook has always been like a little brother to you and you always looked after him, especially when the guys picked in him. You were planning a special birthday surprise for him with the guys. "He should be happy he gets a cake." Yoongi scuffed. "Well well now lets not be too mean Yoongi...he is the youngest." I said while writing down ideas. You and the guys came up with a plan. You and Jin would bake a cake and cook food. Hobi and Tae would clean up while Namjoon and Yoongi decorated. "Namjoon please don't break anything." Hobi laughed. Namjoon rolled his eyes and laughed. The next day it was super hot in the office and all you wanted to fo was take a shower. You rushed home and jumped into the shower. Jin would be shopping for food with Namjoon while the others bought decorations. Jungkook would be at the library volunteering so everything should be finished then. The water felt so good as you allowed it to hit your skin. You had your relaxing body wash. You inhaled the lavender scent and lathered up your body sponge. You began cleaning and singing when you seen a pair of eyes looking in the small crack of the door. You paused thinking you seen something else. You didn't know if your mind was playing tricks on you. Then you looked back and no one was there. You finisjef showering and walked down to your room. You noticed Jungkook's door was cracked. This was strange cuz he always locks his door. You pay no mind and get dressed. The crew arrived and you all get to preparing the surprise birthday for Jungkook. You were pleased how everything played out. Namjoon only broke 3 things which is good. You walked to your room to get an extra present you brought for Jungkook when you noticed your pantry drawer was opened. Your neatly arranged panties were all a mess. You picked up the present wrapped in shiny red wrapper and seen that Jungkook's door was cracked wider. You walked down the hall and heard odd noises. "Yass gosh noona..." You peeped your head in without makjng a sound and saw Jungkook with your panties in his hand. He was licking a pink pair with a red pair wrapped around his man hood. Jungkook was stroking himself. You found yourself shook for a moment. But then you began watching out of enjoyment. Your breathing goth heavier. Jungkook slowly his hand motion and grinned. "I know you are watching me noona." You covered ur mouth. But a gasp escaped ur wet lips. "Jungkook why do you have my panties? "Noona you know I want you. I made that clear last week when I spanked the hell out of you. Remember you made me promise not to tell." You walked into his room and closed the door. "Shh boy that was a mistake." "A mistake?" Jungkook said while raising his eyebrow. He smiled while looking at the gift I had. "Nice wrapping but do you know what I really want noona?" Jungkook smirked. Jungkook walked closer to be still hard as a brick and stood behind me allowing his hard on to rub between by cheeks. He let out a groan. "I know you been with all the guys nonna, they brag about it. I want you now." Jungkook said. "Jungkook...look those days are behind me. I'm no longer group banging trash." "Okay I will just spread the word at work." Jungkook laughed. "Fine Jungkook." I hissed. Jungkook pushed me on my stomach while sliding my shorts to the side. He was happy to see I had in no panties. He stuffed a pair or my panties he had in my mouth and plunged deep inside me without mercy. The pink wet panties muffled my scream of pleasure. Jungkook pounded me hard and fast. "Noona you were all wet from watching me?" Jungkook smacked my butt hard. "ANSWER me. You like watching me wack off?" I nodded as he pulled me hard into him. He switched so we were facing the mirror and began pounding me hard hitting all my spots. "Look at that little face. You love it noona. Yoongi said you like it rough." I surprised Jungkook and pusjed him back on his butt. I climbed on top of him. "You gotta do more to get me off little baby boy." I said while grinning. I began riding him hard and fast while pulling his hair. He began sucking my right breast as I rode him. "Yass that's a good baby boy." I moaned. I could see he was coming to the edge and so was I. The room echoed of slapping skin. "Noona yasss! Oh shit!" Jungkook moaned while exploded in me. The explosion made me go over the edge. My vision was so blurry. Suddenly the crew busted in "Happy Birthday Jungkook!" "Shit looks like we got to the party late." Yoongi blurted.

Children who grow up with pets become more sensitive and sympathetic adults!
Contact with animals gives children a greater sense of responsibility, enhances empathy and increases their understanding of the cycle of life. But Why? Several studies show how children who live with pets have a more developed emotional intelligence (EI), i.e. the ability of effectively understand, manage, and express one’s feelings and interpreting those of others. This is considered to be a key factor for a better quality of life. Unlike the intelligence quotient (IQ), which experts consider to be unalterable, the emotional intelligence can progress with time, through practice. Animals can help children do this. Here are the benefits our four-legged friends can have on our kids. 1. Empathy Children living with pets early learn to take care and feed another creature, initially by observing their parents, storing up all elements they will use in every future interaction with animals. Several studies demonstrate that children who own pets feel more empathy towards other people and animals. 2. Self-esteem Taking care of animals necessarily entails responsibilities, which give children a sense of personal fulfilment and help them feeling independent and competent. Nienke Endenburg and Ben Baarda, authors of the book The Waltham Book of Human–Animal Interaction, reports an experiment in which children with low self-esteem showed great progresses after they spent 9 months with a pet in their classroom. 3. Cognitive development Spending time with pets can ease the acquisition of language and improve oral competences in children. They don’t only play with animals, but also talk to them and often read stories in their presence. Moreover, “conversing” with animals helps children fighting stutter. 4. Stress reduction Animals offer a unique emotional support, and are able to weaken negative feelings. During a research children were asked to tell who they would talk to if they find themselves in a spot, and most of them mentioned their own pets. Effectively, we often feel unconditionally supported by them, whilst other people would judge and criticise certain situations. What do you think?
