#3 Learning about leadership as an intern

Internships always encourage leadership but it can be hard to really know what they mean, especially when it feels like interns have such limited opportunity to really be leaders. But, I’ve learned that being a leader is possible while being an intern, at least in small capacities. Managers and my coworkers are impressed when I take initiatives like asking if there is something I can help with, going a bit above and beyond, or even showing up early. It can be hard sometimes to realize that going above and beyond can be something that’s almost expected, but it is something good to realize early on in the internship because it’s a really important way to make a good impression on people.
