Get Pumped!

For all you eager 2014 Community Fellows interns out there, I just have one question for you: are you ready to get pumped?!

Some of you may have already started your internship while others are still anticipating all that is about to unfold. Either way, here are some tips for you to maintain this eager attitude as well as how to share your experiences with other interns so to embolden each other on this CFP journey!

Tip # 1: Keep your long-term goals at the forefront of your mind. Doing this will serve as a reminder of what you came to accomplish during your internship as well as to remain steadfast in the role your non-profit organization wants you to play.

Tip #2: Have an open-mind and be flexible. You'll find that more opportunities to contribute at your NPO arise out of your willingness to try new things. Also, being available to your NPO as much as possible exhibits dedication and passion.

Tip #3: Stay connected! Let's face it, we are all going to reach a dry patch in our internship at some point or another. To prevent ourselves from remaining apathetic, see what your fellow CFP interns are posting by following the Career Center's Facebook, Instagram and Twitter page (@HIREaPANTHER), which I strongly encourage you to join if you haven't yet.
**Remember to share your experiences on Instagram and/or Twitter using the #communityfellows. You can also nominate yourself and send it via the CFP email for a chance to win Community Fellows of the Week!

If you're pumped up about this summer, please don't hesitate to continually share your journey on social media! I'll be sharing my own personal CFP experience at Girls Inc. of Long Island on this blog. Get pumped UP because it's going to be one amazing summer!
