Five Times Interns Should Speak Up

A common questions amongst interns happens to be when it’s appropriate to speak up. Many interns get super quiet and tend to be shy when involved in meetings, brainstorms and events. Here are five definite times your colleagues want to hear from you.

When Interns Should Speak Up


  • During the job interview. Voice what your true interests are and what you would like to learn throughout the internship.
  • Within team meetings. Bring up some of your past experiences or insights that could better the team.
  • During office brainstorms. Your thoughts in brainstorms are gold considering your demographic is much younger than a majority of the office.
  • At work events. Staffed to attend an event? Don’t be shy if you’re stationed at check-in or mingling around the party.
  • At office get togethers. If you’re invited to “happy hour” after work with a coworker, go. And show your personality.

Office Holiday Protocol

‘Tis the season for holiday parties, end of year recaps and drinking and eating excessively. With the holiday break right around the corner, here is some holiday office protocol to follow.

Office Holiday Protocol

  • Have fun at your holiday party, but not too much fun. Aka don’t blackout and regret something the next day.
  • Avoid coming into the office hungover. You may set yourself back a few days and have to work over the break.
  • Give small gifts. To your coworkers, such as a note, cookies or desk accessories. Even better, bake cookies for the office.
  • Send the office schedule to the client. Let them know exactly when the office will be open/closed but note that you’ll be available over email/phone.
  • Start pulling your end of year recaps NOW. Don’t leave them until last minute.
  • Leave your online holiday shopping for at home. You’ll get too wrapped into it at work (pun intended).
  • Wish your clients a happy holidays. Before leaving the office for good.
  • Don’t disappear over the break. We all know PR never stops. Be prepared for client requests that could come through.
  • Use the holidays to unwind. And be thankful for all that you have.
