Intern Diaries: The perks of interning for a small company
July 1, 2016
"The bigger the better" isn't always true. My internship at RjM is living proof of why.
Internships are more than another line to add on your resume - it's about experience. Never heard of that one before, right? On a serious note, you need to make sure you're getting an authentic and useful experience. I mean, I'm spending 40+ hours in an office while most people my age are traveling and boozing through their summer. I chose to learn and get ahead, therefore, I want to get the most out of it. I don't regret my decision because of the staff and environment at RjM. I'm not completely discouraging internships at large companies; I think that any internship you are still gaining some sort of experience. However, I believe small companies can give interns more out of their experience. Here are my top three reasons.
Intern Diaries : First Day. AHHHHH.

Once upon a time I slept until noon. Then I started interning at RjM. The end.
...well there's a lot more to the story, but this is just the beginning of my internship here at RjM. It all started when my alarm went off at 6:50 am and it finally sank in that today was the day that I started "adulting". The start of my very first internship had me feeling very anxious in the best way possible.
