12 Men - Shower or bathe the morning of the interview. Wear deodorant. Don t wear cologne or aftershave. - Make sure you have fresh breath. Don t eat or smoke before the interview. Finally, your hair should be neat, clean, and conservative.

13 Women - Generally, you should wear a suit with a skirt or pants; your suit should be comfortable and fit you well. - Interview suits should be simple and dark in color.

15 Questions Employers ask in an Internship Interview Why do you want to intern here? Why should we hire you? What s your goal with this internship? Tell me about some of your university involvements and how they relate to this job. What are your plans after graduation? Why did you pick your school/major/minor?

16 Questions Employers ask in an Internship Interview Have you done your research on the organization? And What do you know about our company? What specific skills do you have that would relate to this position? And What makes you a good candidate for the position? Tell me about your strengths. What is your biggest weakness?

17 ADVICE for the INTERN

18 Exhibit a Can-Do Attitude Attitude speaks loud and clear and makes a lasting impression, so make sure yours is one of your greatest assets. Take on any task assigned no matter how small with enthusiasm. Take the initiative to acquire new skills and ask for things to do. Accept criticism kindly and maintain a sense of humor. Ask to attend meetings and events that interest you. Ask to shadow different people and talk with them about their work experiences

19 Take Your Position and Assignments Seriously Build a reputation for being reliable and dependable. Be attentive and accurate in your work. You may encounter a great deal of ambiguity, so seek direction when in doubt. Your supervisor knows there will be an initial learning curve and will make allowances for mistakes. Learn from your errors and move on to your next task. Complete all tasks with enthusiasm and a positive gratitude Get to work on time, and minimize slacking.

20 Meet Deadlines Always assume the responsibility to ask when an assignment is due. This will help you understand your supervisor s priorities and to manage your time accordingly. Be willing to accept additional work responsibilities as the position continues. Be prepared to work late or overtime when necessary...give 110%. Your willingness to go the extra mile, especially during crunch time, will help you pave the way to assuming greater responsibilities. Alert your boss in advance if you will be unable to meet expectations.this shows respect and professional maturity.

21 Communicate Respectfully Find out the proper way to address supervisors and coworkers, including customers. Remember their names! Maintain a pleasant and respectful manner with every person, regardless of his or her rank. Assume everyone else knows more than you do, but don t be afraid to present useful ideas that may save time, money, or solve problems. Make sure, however, that your style doesn t come across as arrogant. Employers value assertiveness, not aggressiveness.

22 Be a Team Player Learn how to follow the chain of command. Don t go over or around your supervisor to get noticed, to get ahead, or to complain. Establish and maintain good business relationships with everyone. Learn how your assignment fits into the grand scheme of things. In today s work environment, success is often defined by your ability to get along with and interact with others. You are a winner only if your team wins. Show initiative, if bored ask for work

23 Imposter Syndrom Most internships will require technical knowledge you won t have at first. So, the most important things you have to rely on are: Problem solving and Communication skills, Time management and Leadership.

24 Guest Speakers: Internship Students Fellow Balamand students are here to discuss what they ve gotten out of their internship: Mr. Said Abou Abdo- Finance Mr. Daniel Chelala- Marketing Ms. Nadine Finge- Management

25 Lessons to learn from an Internship Internships are important, so start planning early so you can do one. Each internship program is different, make the most of the opportunity. Internships can turn into your full-time job, so choose a company wisely.
