Managing Your Time
- The ability to work independently is vital to a virtual internship. Try to set aside time each day to dedicate to your internship. Creating a schedule for yourself and sticking to it will keep the work manageable and help you avoid a last minute crunch right before a deadline.
- It is likely that your site supervisor will give you a time frame for large assignments, but setting interim deadlines for yourself will help you avoid feeling overwhelmed right before a major deadline.
- Don’t let deadlines pass you by. Your site supervisor is counting on you to finish work in a timely manner. Make sure you devote the required time necessary to complete projects by the deadline your supervisor established.
- Keep track of your hours throughout the semester. Consider creating a timesheet for yourself to ensure that you are pacing yourself appropriately.
