working with sr. folks, no one knows I'm an intern or treats me as such. Great perks- lots of growth potential.
I pretty much get handed anything everyone else doesn't want to do, great for learning, but wish some of my projects were more long term.
Advice to Potential Interns
Meet people, connect, don't think you're above any task, be humble, treat others with respect, don't expect for anything to be handed to you, earn it and work for it- a lot of self teaching and being proactive.
Advice to Management
Not everyone is suited to be a manager, if you don't have people skills or experience with students/interns don't request an intern just to help you ease your workload. Have a project ready for them, and train them or have someone train them. Not everyone can handle sink or swim right off the back.
