The article below was written by the Founder of Redbox, and is a note to his son as the son begins his first corporate internship. Given all my interactions with both candidates and employers, much of the advice rang true and could have a big impact on a student’s ability to gain the most from an internship.
Maybe the article impacted me more this week than it would have at another time because I just dropped my son off at college. I have been giving him advice his whole life and was still imparting wisdom up until the moment I left him to fly home. I saw this article shortly after arriving at home and immediately sent it to my son. I hope you will enjoy it and share it with an intern or two.
