Career Advice We Learned at This Summer's Intern Summit

  1. Make updating LinkedIn a priority. It's your professional profile; it should look like your resume. Take time to write out your current job description and what you're looking for.  
  2. YOU are your biggest advocate. Let people know what's important to you so that they can help you achieve your goals.
  3. Staying authentic can help with work/life balance and overall happiness. Authenticity begins with self-awareness: know who you are—your values, emotions, and competencies—and how you're perceived by others.
  4. Emails: use spell check, draft it without recipients until it's ready to send, don't start with lower cases, use correct pronunciation and grammar, ask a coworker to proof it.
  5. Focus on the most difficult tasks early in the morning.
  6. Take time to focus on you. You can work hard, but make time for yourself, however small.
  7. In many jobs, there is no on or off switch. Try to set boundaries and stick to them.
  8. In a perfect world, we would work for eight hours, sleep for eight, and enjoy life for eight. But finding fulfillment through work you love can make all the difference toward achieving that balance.
  9. Don't just network when you need something, it's a mutual exchange - offer to help first.
