You’re Going to Hit the Time of Your Life a.k.a. Your First Internship
You've just decided that the next smart thing to do in your life is to take off to this new place where learning opportunities turn into new experience. New is the main keyword, and this is exciting! You want it to be special and to shake your life a bit.

Here are some friendly hints on how to make this experience a completely mind-blowing and disruptive one:
1. Make clear what you want to learn from it - What are you actually looking for out there?
Knowing your purpose in everything you do is the best way to tackle the core of it. Get to know what you want to accomplish. This will help you build your objectives. The main focus should be on understanding where you currently are and where you want to be at the end of it.  Set up some milestones. Then map out the activities and learning experience that will get you from one point to the next.

2. Prepare to meet some pro’s.
Learning new things that will add to your studies and kick-off your working experience is an important step in jump starting your career. Get ready to make contacts, keep your eyes open, ask questions to the pro’s you will meet in this wanderlust place called an office. You have no idea what a privileged position this is - to be the “apprentice”. It’s really not as bad as it sounds. Being able to talk with people working in the industry is priceless. So go for it!

3. Explore that “new”.
Being on your own in a foreign geography and dealing with fresh situations is soul-enriching and a maturity test altogether. Take time to learn something new about yourself as well. Living far away from family, old friends and habits makes space for you to uncover things you didn’t know about yourself, discover new interests and find the time to nourish them.

So pack your enthusiasm and eagerness to learn, and fly by!
