One option that many students use both to earn a steady paycheck to pay for college tuition and to gain job experience is to work a college internship. A college internship can be a great way to gain work experience because you will likely be working for a professional in your career field and can learn a great deal from them during the term of your internship college. If you have accepted an internship college in another town, you may be nervous about what to expect and if you will fit in at the new town.
It can help a great deal to do some research on the town where you will be completing the college internship. Find out what there is to do in your new town and where people your age hang out. You can find this out from others at your college internship or by looking online. You can also begin to feel a lot more comfortable in your internship college town by joining extracurricular groups where you can meet new people and make new friends. You can also make friends with other employers at your college internship, which can be very beneficial because they can show you the ropes at work and also show you around your new town.
