You all must have come around a bunch of articles asserting the importance of a summer internship and how to get them and all but has anyone told you about the environment that you get to work in? Very few, I guess, well don’t panic as in this article I am going to tell you about the same. When you start on an internship you get an opportunity to interact with some people who are called the ‘co – interns’. Well, they are also the human beings just like you and are there undergoing an internship just like you and most importantly with you! So, before you step out you may need to know about the various types of co – interns that you are likely to meet during an internship.They may be some normal ones or if you are lucky you could land in a bunch of peculiar characters, whose characteristics are so diverse that, well let us assume you are not gonna land on that kind of situation. So, here are some of the categories of interns that you are likely to meet.
Types of co-interns you will come across during your summer internship
These type of co – interns are the ones with the happy go lucky attitude and never harm anyone, on the other hand all they love to do is reciting jokes (in some cases PJs), do mimicry, acts and what not just to make people laugh. Actually having them adds positively for the work environment as when you are happy while working your productivity increases, so always look out for them and be in their company.
The overworked kid
These are the ones who generally are the first ones to hit the work place and the last one to leave. Whenever you try to hang out with them all you are going to hear is work related stuff. They never enjoy any moment fully and as they are always thinking about the work – so it is better to keep a safe distance from them.
The go-to person
These type of co – interns are there for everybody’s help, whether you are looking for some designing advice or whether you are stuck in some technical problem they will be there always to help you out. All they have got is a big smile on their faces and their welcoming attitude that compels others to reach out to them in moments of crisis.
The invisible intern
Chandler! Yes, they may be like him. Mostly, the introverts who do not like socializing and cannot be found in gatherings and all. Mostly you can see them either in their work place or their homes, hanging out is not what they generally prefer.
- The Diva
Sonam Kapoor of every office! She is generally the one who has got tons of make up on her even during morning hours you can see her in full make up and no wonder many of the co – interns choose to come to office just because of her.
- The foodie
Well, these type of co – interns can be helpful and harmful as well. Helpful in the sense that they know almost all places for food and know where the best thing is served so you can always go to them for some free advice and harmful in the sense that they can eat anybody’s food and then act as if they don’t know whose it was. So beware of them, although you can trust them with anything but food! And most importantly – They don’t share their food!
So, now when you know about the types of co – interns that you may encounter while on an internship are you excited for the little adventure?
