The End of an Internship

My internship at University of Dreams is over. My last day was on Wednesday and unlike the other days, I was sad to come to work. This would mean that I have to say goodbye to everyone in the office. But this is also a good thing because I now can go on to other things and be able to learn more about myself and see what I can do.

Looking back at my internship, I learned a lot. Not just from the projects that I worked on, but also how a company works. The employers put a lot of effort and time to make things happen for students. They are all dedicated in what they do and know that what they are doing can make a difference. And I am with them on that and everything else 100 percent.

I feel that I have grown over the last 2 months. When I look at my resume, I can't believe how far I have come since my first job in high school, and feels like I can take on anything.

On your last day of your internship, be positive, thank everyone in the office (if its a small office), and write a few "thank you" cards to those you have worked with. Ray and I actually received a thank you card as well from everyone in the office. I'll admit, I almost cried as I said goodbye to everyone. I didn't want to leave, but it was a wonderful experience and I will be more than happy to return to the company in the future, if needed.

TIP of the BLOG: If you really connected to some of the people in the office, keep in touch with them. You never know when another opportunity will arise.
