Dear CCE,

I’m about to start my internship. Even though I went through the interview process, I’m not really sure what’s expected of me. What do I do?

Dear Student,

Congratulations on your internship! Expectations will often be communicated to you within the first few days on the job. If not, you will want to do some information gathering through observation of your colleagues, reading of materials, and asking questions.
