What was the best thing you took away from an internship?

Being treated like a professional, not a student, was a good change for me. The editor I worked for in my internship had very high expectations and would not do the work for me. My first month I wrote classified ads and obituaries – and I re-wrote them several times until I met my editor’s standards. Being expected to turn out professional level work was really good for me, and ultimately it helped me to set and maintain high standards for those who have worked for me, and with me, over the years.
