New job or internship? Avoid these “rookie mistakes.”

Maybe you started a new internship this semester, or maybe you’ll land something at the Job and Internship Fair. If this is one of your first office or professional experiences, The Daily Muse has some tips for you. It really just comes down to balance.

1. Questions: ask them all or don’t say a word?

2. Know it all or no ideas?

3. Copy everyone or don’t tell a soul?

4. “Yes” to all or “not my job?”

5. Ultraquiet or TMI?
