Self organisation is a key to internship and employment success. How organised are you and how is it impacting your work place success? Your organisational skills are not always natural skills and can be learned.
You may be the best and most brilliant student, have all the wonderful intellectual and practical skills to understand scientific principles or the wonders of digital marketing, but it is all meaningless to an organisation if you are not organised.
One of the key areas that is of value to a business is ‘self organisation’ and to understand the work flow process of corporations which is like its life blood.
This includes the most basic things like running a calendar, using email as a key information flow, following a work flow schedule, understanding urgency of specific events, following a time line, understanding milestones and showing email courtesy which is to simply respond and not leave people in the dark.
This post is written for existing and potential interns as our internship programme is up and running and we just ran our first course based internship which included an evaluation process as the host organisation with Macleay College see our blog article (below).
