Staying in touch Conclusion PART 1 will look at all the processes involved in securing a beneficial internship, offering advice and insights into what areas are available (particularly emerging industries) and what kind of person might suit a sector. It will then offer guidance to the reader on the best places to find these opportunities - both publicised and hidden, and how to make the most of your application, from initial contact to interview stage. Crucially, PART 1 will also give expert advice on warning signs to look out for when applying for internships, ensuring candidates are not exploited or find themselves in a position they did not want. PART 2 will walk the reader through all the aspects of conducting a successful internship, dealing with issues that a potential intern, particularly one who may not have experienced an office environment before, may not be aware of. It will range from ensuring you have everything ready to ensure your first day runs smoothly; keeping expectations realistic; managing relationships with superiors, colleagues and clients; and new potential stumbling blocks at work, such as the advent of social media and the implications thereof. PART 3 will help the reader maximise their internship experience after it has finished. It will deal with securing a positive reference, how to update your CV/cover letter accordingly to include the extra experience, and give advice on cultivating the contacts made during a placement.
