Doing it – getting the most out of your internship

What do you want to get out of your internship? We look at setting goals, getting feedback and navigating office politics. Are you business mature? Do you need a mentor to figure that out? What do employers want out of you, we have a list of seven things.

Hosts, Buffy Gorrilla and Ben Pawson, talk to interns about their goals for their internship and what they want to get out of it. Plus what do they tell their supervisor they want to achieve - it might be different things…

We help you navigate all the different office personalities and revel how often they think about you! We debunk imposter syndrome and explore ways of asking for things, one of the secrets of getting the most out of your internship.

And if you have any stories about office politics or business maturity to share send them to: We would love to hear from you.
