Questions:

  1. Given what you recall of past internships or employment, what aspects of self-awareness do you believe are strengths and particularly useful to your role as an intern? In what way are these similar and different from strengths you had in previous experiences? Are there aspects of self-understanding that give you the reason for concern when it comes to this internship? If sol, do you understand why that is? Have you given thought to a plan to move through it?
  2. How does the internship site compare to your expectations and/or to your previous internships or employment? Do the pace, volume, and level of tasks approximate what you thought they would? What unwritten rules of the site have you observed? How do they resonate with you? Should that matter?
  3. Thinking about the past few weeks of your internship, what has happened that you did not expect. Include positive and negative situations. Think about three domains of learning (knowledge, skills, and self) as well as your responsibilities and those of your supervisor.
