Undergraduate/Graduate Internship
Program

BEFORE YOUR INTERNSHIP
The Internship Process Begins...
Attend Internship Info Session
(RSVP on John Jay Careers Online)
&
Search for Internships
Step #2
Fill out the Spring 2014 Internship Application on John Jay Careers Online
Ask Yourself This?
What do you think employers look for in a
GOOD INTERN
or job candidate?



So why is it important to know these skills?
These skills should be highlighted to employers in your resume and interviews.

None of these skills are directly related to your major.....which means if you are thinking
"I don't know enough to do an internship"
then you are wrong. Employers are looking for skill sets.....not how much knowledge you have about your major.
INTERNSHIP BASICS
Dress and Other Internship Etiquette
- Treat an internship like any other professional position

- Address supervisors formally unless they say otherwise

- It is better to dress up than dress down. If it is a professional position you will typically be expected to wear business professional or business casual attire. Keep your clothing and accessories tasteful and conservative.

- Every place of employment has a different office 'culture'. Take a few days to assess the environment you will be working in.
