"At first it is nerve-wracking to be an intern-you don't know anyone, have no idea how the company functions and think all of your ideas are bad ideas. Because of that I was hesitant at first to ask questions or chime in on major meetings or conference calls. But after a couple weeks I became comfortable and realized they hired me for my ideas! So I started to give input at meetings and take initiative. It was really rewarding to see my ideas take shape and come to life."

"You cannot be afraid of hard work, and you have to go into every situation with a ton of energy and enthusiasm. Even if you have no idea what you're doing, energy and enthusiasm (especially in the early stages of a career) go a long way towards differentiating you from other employees and/or business."
