If you clicked on this post, it probably means you just landed your first internship! Congrats! You're one step closer to actually finding a job when you graduate, But now that you've gotten one you're probably wondering what the heck you're supposed to do now? Fear not girl, I'm here to help!

In my first series here at Almost It Girl, I'm navigating the sea of internships with you. From finally snagging one, to how to dress the part we're talking it all. First up? Debunking internship myths.

1) All you'll ever do is fetch coffee
Now I've only two internships, so I can't speak for every company but from what I know that's completely not true. Most companies want you to learn and grow not memorize their Starbucks order.

2) You should only stick to your "career field"
Take it from someone who changed their major her first semester of college, you probably have no idea what you want to do. And that's completely okay because interning is how you figure it out. Don't be afraid to get out of your comfort zone, and try things just because they sound like fun!
3) You have to have it all together,
This is by far the biggest myth, no one has it all together. But I'm here to help as much as I possibly can!
Hope this first post was helpful, and stay tuned for the next one!

Until next time my sweet friends,
