The Diary of an Intern: A New Starrlights Series!

Dear Fellow Baruch Students!

Are you currently working as an intern?  Are you looking for an internship? We know that many of you have had a chance to go through the whole process of applying, interviewing, and getting internships. Do you still remember that sigh of great relief after getting the offer letter, when it seemed like the whole world was yours?

What about the first day of your internship? How did that feel: nervous, puzzled, and uncertain? While students have a lot of resources to help them through the process of obtaining internships, we think there needs to be more information on how to handle various situations after you actually start your new job.  Wouldn’t it be great to learn from someone else’s internship experience?  With this in mind, we want to introduce you to a person willing to share his own experience.  Please welcome Bob The Intern.

Bob The Intern is a Baruch student who is going to start his internship with Company X next week. Bob has decided to write a diary about his internship experience and is generous enough to allow us to post some of his notes in our blog. We will call his notes “The Diary of an Intern.” In his diary, Bob will share the successes and challenges that he faces and look for the best solutions.  Since we are convinced that two heads are better than one, we highly encourage you to share your advice for Bob in the comments section.

In addition, if you are interested in sharing your personal internship experiences for possible inclusion in Bob’s journey, please e-mail the Starrlights Blog Committee at

We hope you will find “The Diary of an Intern” exciting and helpful.

Best Regards,

Nadya Semenova
