Planning the Internship Calendar

Take a calendar to your internship interview.
  • 1 - Know in advance your best starting date.
  • 2 - Know what days/weeks you can/cannot work.
  • 3 - Estimate when school will have to come first.
It can be any kind of calendar!
  • 1 - A cell phone calendar will work.
  • 2 - A school calendar will work.
  • 3 - A time diary or journal will work.
College internship mentors know that interns have other responsibilities besides coming to the site on the agreed-upon schedule. Your mentor will respect your forward thinking in setting a tentative calendar for the internship.
