At Your Internship

Starting something new is always an exciting and nervous time, and beginning your internship will be no different. Use this section to learn about important program procedures and requirements, and how to get the most out of your time with your Host Organization.

It’s important to think ahead about what you are expecting from your Host Organization; but also think about what they will be expecting from you. Don’t forget that you can (and should) discuss this with your Host Organization when you are preparing your Training Plan (DS-7002)
