Maintaining Professional Etiquette

  • Remain respectful in your communication and interactions with your employer. Conduct yourself in a manner that is consistent with the USC SCampus Guidelines regarding the University Student Conduct Code. Communicate through your organization’s preferred technology platforms and respond to messages in a timely fashion.
  • Treat your internship like a three-month interview. Be open-minded and receptive to feedback, as it can help you grow and develop professionally.
  • Take initiative and ask for more work if you are not busy with alternative assignments. You might learn something new or identify a skill set that has yet to be discovered.
