實習已經成為大學生必參加的活動之一,因為現在大多數的工作,都希望學生有過相關的工作經驗。不過,去實習到底如何讓老闆對你另眼相待呢?



抱持正確的期望
實習生的工作不像想像中可以獨立做事,大多是一些辦公室雜事,像是影印、發送文件等等。相對地,在履歷上,你卻可以換來一行相關工作經驗。



建立主管對你的信任
實習工作,一開始就是要主管對你的信任,在工作上注意細節、服從命令等,就算工作無趣,也要做到最好,建立關係之後,主管才可以放心交給你其他工作項目。



融入辦公室文化
觀察辦公室同事的行為,然後模仿學習。如果老闆對於準時開會很重視,那也跟著做。這些都是細節小事,但是注意細節可以讓你在許多實習生中顯得與眾不同。



專注工作
千萬別在上班時間瀏覽社群網站或是和朋友傳簡訊。或許你認為這些不會影響你的工作效能,卻會給主管負面印象,在實習期間,主管的想法對於你實習工作非常重要。



認真看待工作
不管是考試或是作業,一點小差錯只會影響到自己;工作上的差錯卻會讓其他人受害。如果不小心犯了錯,要小心處理好後續問題,千萬不要含糊過去或是找藉口,要勇敢承擔任並
修正錯誤,另外向上司保證不會重複犯錯。


邀上司給你工作回饋
工作到一個段落,就請上司給你建議和回顧;請問她你如何可以再改進?有沒有其他方法可以工作的更好?主管對你的期待有哪些?這些建議可以給你一些想法,讓你更容易掌握工作要領。



同事是很好學習的對象
找時間和同事聊聊他們的工作,了解他們如何進入這個行業?他們對工作的看法?工作有挑戰性嗎?他們對你的建議?大多數同事都會很樂意分享,他們也很樂意幫助你。



穿著符合規定的衣著
實習生雖然不是正式員工,也要穿著符合公司規定。如果穿著跟在學校上課一樣隨便,那表示你對這項工作不夠認真。穿著是可以看出一個人對於工作的態度。


接受建議
與同事分享你的職涯計劃,讓他們知道你很樂意廳去任何的建議。他們常常可以提供很棒的工作建議和職涯經驗分享。大多數的人都很願意分享,只要你主動的詢問,都可以有不錯的答案。



常說「謝謝」
主動告知主管你在實習期間所學,並且謝謝他們給予的機會。所有的人都喜歡聽感謝的話語,千萬不要害羞表達自己的感謝之意。

10 Tips to Get the Most Out of Your Internship

Internships have become a must for college students. Without the work experience they provide, the post-graduation job search is significantly more difficult. But it’s not enough to simply get an internship. Here's how to impress your employer during your time there.

Know what to expect.
As an intern, you probably won't be doing glamorous, substantive work; you’ll likely be making other people’s lives easier. So you may get stuck photocopying, filing, arranging meetings, or doing other menial tasks. But in exchange, you'll get exposure to the field and experience for your resume.

Gain trust early on.
When you come in as an intern, you'll have to prove yourself in the work world. To show that you pay attention to detail, follow instructions, and care about quality, do a great job even when you're handed boring tasks. Eventually, someone may let you try something more interesting

Pay attention to the office culture.
Observe how others in the office act, and mirror that. If employees modulate their voices when others are on the phone, modulate yours. If they’re compulsively on time for meetings, you should always be on time, too. These details may sound trivial, but they’ll help you stand out compared to other interns.

Focus
Don’t use social networking sites (unless it’s part of your job) or text with friends throughout the workday. You may be confident that it doesn’t affect your work, but experienced managers may feel confident that it does. And especially this early on, your manager's opinion matters.

Take your work seriously.
In school, if you made a mistake on a test or paper, it only affected you. In many jobs, mistakes are much more serious. If you do make a mistake, make sure you handle it correctly. Don't try to cover it up or make excuses. Own up and fix it. Then tell your boss it won't happen again—and make sure it doesn't.

Ask for feedback.
Every so often, ask your boss how you’re doing. What could you do differently? What could you do better? Are you meeting the goals of the organization? What about goals your boss has for you as an individual? Make it easy for her to give you input that will help you grow. And once you have that feedback, use it.

Learn from your co-workers.
Ask them about their own careers. How did they get into the field? What do they like about it? What do they find challenging? What advice do they have for you? Most people love to talk about themselves and will be flattered that you’re asking about their experiences. Best of all, it’s likely to make them want to help you.

Dress appropriately.
There’s no intern exception in the dress code, and yet interns sometimes go to work wearing flip-flops, ultra-low-rise jeans, visible bra straps, and worse. If you look like you're dressing for a class rather than a job, you’re signaling that you don't take your job seriously. Dress for the part you want to play.
Ask for advice.

Talk to co-workers about your career plans, and let them know you're open to advice, both now and in the future. They can be helpful by sharing job leads, recommending you for a job, and suggesting various career choices. Most people are happy to help, but they might not offer if you don't ask.

Say “Thank you.” Talk to your manager about what you’re getting out of your internship, and thank her for giving you the opportunity to work there. We all love hearing the occasional expression of appreciation, so don't be shy about offering it.
