Intern Diaries: The perks of interning for a small company

"The bigger the better" isn't always true. My internship at RjM is living proof of why.

Internships are more than another line to add on your resume - it's about experience. Never heard of that one before, right? On a serious note, you need to make sure you're getting an authentic and useful experience. I mean, I'm spending 40+ hours in an office while most people my age are traveling and boozing through their summer. I chose to learn and get ahead, therefore, I want to get the most out of it. I don't regret my decision because of the staff and environment at RjM. I'm not completely discouraging internships at large companies; I think that any internship you are still gaining some sort of experience. However, I believe small companies can give interns more out of their experience. Here are my top three reasons.

Intern Diaries : First Day. AHHHHH.

Once upon a time I slept until noon. Then I started interning at RjM. The end.

...well there's a lot more to the story, but this is just the beginning of my internship here at RjM. It all started when my alarm went off at 6:50 am and it finally sank in that today was the day that I started "adulting". The start of my very first internship had me feeling very anxious in the best way possible.
