It's summer break, and for many college students, that means a dive into real work experience through internships. That can mean anything from boring days answering phones, to exciting opportunities leading to future employment. On Campus asked its own intern to do some research on how college students approach internships today:
"From any internships that you've had, or this one, do you have any internship horror stories… or classic intern moments?" asked Mikaela Johnson, a rising junior at Colby College in Maine.
Johnson is interning with On Campus in Boston this summer. She took the "I'm one of you" approach as she interviewed five interns at Digitas, a global marketing and technology company based in Boston. She shared her own stories to help break the ice.
"I got locked in the staircase, got lost in the parking garage," recalled Johnson amidst laughter.
