Before you begin your internship, it’s important to be aware of expectations for professional behavior. You should expect to be treated by your supervisors and co-workers with dignity and respect at all times. In turn, you are expected to behave in a professional, ethical and respectful manner at the worksite. Professionalism includes your dress, demeanor, communication and overall behavior.
Whether you’re enrolled in an intern course or if you’re a “non credit” intern, you should develop written goals and objectives for the internship.
