Internships in PR are crucial. Once you get your first, second, or last internship of your career you never want to make these mistakes:

  • Act like you’re above lowly tasks
    • Treat every task as being equally important.
  • Dress unprofessionally
    • Dress how the professionals at the job dress. Just because you are intern doesn’t mean you can’t dress like you are a permanent employee.
  • Talk bad about others in the office
    • Simply put; avoid office gossip.
  • Not thank the people that help you
    • Always say “please” and “thank you.” Those two words can take you far.
  • Not learn or improve
    • Take notes and always ask questions. You are there to learn and grow in your career.

Are there any other tips you would add to the list?
