Reflecting on Internships (1) | #Interns & #Misconceptions of #PR
Being an intern can be a huge shock to the system - the often the first real exposure to working life; having challenging bosses, deadlines and real accountability for your actions. That aside, it's not only about what your agency expects from you - the conversation needs to include what do you expect from your agency, and the internship.
As we start this journey, we asked Farrell (since he's the nice boss) what are some of the common misconceptions interns, that he's met (and maybe even employed), have about our industry in general.
Farrell's pretty realistic about the industry, and about what it takes to be a good PR-actitioner! So potential interns, Listen Listen Listen … and think how can you realign your expectations to be as real as possible, thus giving you a fantastic internship experience?

We will have a few more posts this week on Internship Reflections - our last intern, Jeevan, now a permanent member of Orchan, talks about his experience and how he changed his perspectives and expectations during the internship, a presentation by Craig on How to Make the Most of Your Internship, and a couple of shares from former interns and where they are now.
