Internship Corner – Reflect on Your Experience

Much like sports teams analyze game tapes to pinpoint what worked and didn’t work so they can develop a plan to enhance future play, interns should set aside time to look back and critically reflect on their internship. Our After Internship: Strategic Analysis handout has some prompts to help you figure out what you liked and disliked about your internship, what you want to replicate in future experiences, and what changes you need to make to find a career, job, or workplace that’s right for you. Take a look, write down some reflections, and consider talking to a career counselor, adviser, or mentor about your responses.
