What To Do When..
1. The internet isn't working
You better trouble shoot, restart, and use your hotspot before you bother someone with your internet issues. Oh and for the record, that assignment is still due in an hour.. internet or not. If nothing works, address your issue and give a soultion. If the internet is suddenly not an option offer to work by hand, on your phone, or on other non-internet based tasks.
2. Your boss doesn't like your work
You may have spent hours or days on a project and boy were you off target. Your boss just isn't feeling it. It might not even be what you did, it might be she realized she didn't like the project idea at all. Don't be crushed. It doesn't phase you. It's not personal, it's business. Write down exactly what she didn't like about it. If she still likes certain things, keep them. If you want to know about certain things ask, "what did you think of this?". But never feel discouraged. Breathe and get back to work as if she had given you a totally new assignment.
3. You don't know how to do something
Ex: Excel looks like Suduko to you. Your boss gives you 5 pages on Excel work due by the end of the day and it needs to look professional and chic. Now you not only need to learn how to plug things into Excel, but also how to make it looks chic.
The internet is your best friend. Seriously, God bless the internet. If you don't like to read, watch youtube or look at a diagram on Google Images. If you're still lost, call someone, anyone, that you think might know about this. Last resort , just ask.
4. You have to talk to someone important
Its like preparing for a speech. You make an outline of points you must cover, you figure out what to say to them and how (in a way that makes you look like you know what you're talking about), you try to recite it without looking at the paper. Practice. When the moment comes, don't stress. You know what you're going to say and how you're going to say it because you practiced it and practice makes perfect, right?
5. Your friends invite you on a vacation
Face it, you chose #worklife over #vacaylife. Now deal with it. You can't have them both so you'll have to choose one and while a getaway to Key Largo sounds as great to me as it does to the person who will replace me on the trip, making sure my boss thinks I'm the best intern she's ever had sounds even better. Internships are marathons. You have to show up and work hard even when everyone on Instagram is making you regret it. One day you'll look back and realize the lessons you learned on your internship were way more important than learning not to drinking beer before liquor.
