Valerie, a Customer Engagement Strategy, Planning, & Integration Disney Intern supporting Disney Parks, Experiences, and Products is sharing her words of wisdom for incoming interns.

Congratulations on securing an internship! You may face unique challenges and opportunities during your experience. Here are some pieces of advice to help you make the most of your internship:

  1. Build relationships: Networking is crucial in any professional setting. Take the opportunity to connect with your colleagues, supervisors, and other professionals in your field during your internship. Attend company events, join professional organizations, and seek mentorship from individuals who can provide guidance and support.
  2. Seek feedback: As an intern, you are there to learn and grow. Don’t be afraid to ask for feedback on your performance. Be proactive in seeking constructive criticism from your supervisors and colleagues, and use it as an opportunity to improve and develop new skills.
  3. Be proactive: Take the initiative to go above and beyond your assigned tasks. Seek out additional projects or responsibilities that align with your interests and career goals. Demonstrate your willingness to learn, take on challenges, and contribute to the team.
  4. Have fun and enjoy the experience: Lastly, remember to enjoy the experience! Internships are an opportunity to learn, grow, and gain valuable professional experience. Embrace the challenges, make the most of the opportunities, and have fun along the way.

Good luck with your internship! With the right mindset, preparation, and effort, it can be a rewarding and enriching experience that sets you up for future success.
