Do your best work–even if it feels like you’re not being recognized for it.
Your boss is probably really busy if he or she needs interns–perhaps too busy to remember to recognize all the hard work you do. But that doesn’t mean he or she isn’t noticing. Adler advises, “Take your time as you learn and grow in the company, and don’t ever think any task is too small. There is a lesson in everything, and if you were assigned a job, it was clearly important to someone. They will appreciate a job well done and hopefully recognize you for it someday, whether it be hiring you or recommending you elsewhere.”
“Work, work, work, work, work,” emphasizes Tiffany. “It won’t go unnoticed. You may think 20 hour work days are unappreciated, but the right people will notice and those are the people that happily support you in your future career plans.”
