Summer internship season is around the corner — a time to learn, make connections, explore a potential career path and work towards a job offer. Making yourself a standout intern, or a “super intern” as we fondly call them at Mfa Marketing & PR, is critical if your end goal is an invitation to come back in a permanent role. So, what are the traits of a super intern? Three of our full-time staffers — each of them a former super intern — sat down to talk about their own tried-and-true tips for turning an internship into a job.
Weighing in are Vice President Samantha Lacher, Account Executive Brody Gordon and Digital Marketing Analyst Jay Cariero. Their perspective spans internships over 12 years, three practice areas and three different career stages. The end result? A list of 10 must-dos that all three staffers landed on independently, plus two bonus suggestions that stood out at the VP level.
