Do any of you bosses/interns/PEOPLE have any tips on how to do well at an internship? I'm starting mine in two weeks' time, and I'm terrified of messing up. It's a competitive but conservative work environment.
Sepcifically, do you have any tips on:
-How to make a good impression (coming across as confident)
-How to be productive and produce high quality work
-Office politics (I sometimes seem overly friendly, and other times too meek, or too cold - how do you find the right balance?)
-Having fun/enjoying my time there
-Any other things you wish you'd known when you first started working?
