First day of internship – The Dos and Don’ts.

Remember the first day of school and how whiny you were? You would have never thought that any day can beat it on scale of the mess you created. But the first day you actually start to work in an organization can get messier if you commit a few faux pas. Here are some tips to get it right first time itself.
1. Do the necessary research.
This is something you will never regret.  Spend some quality time surfing the company website and familiarize yourself with the official policies and the philosophy of the company. This will help you to get a better idea of what your manager expects from you. This may also help you figure out some of the common lingo and jargon used in the company.
2. Familiarize yourself with the physical surroundings.
If you are interning in a new city, make sure that you will get a couple of days to check out the place. Visit the firm and surroundings in the peak time itself to get an idea about the traffic and the nearest eateries. This will result in fewer surprises on day 1.
3.Dress appropriately
When in doubt, push away all that you have ever worn to college. Chances are that your boss doesn’t share a taste in clothing with your girlfriend/boyfriend. Girls – no flashy colors, no extra-make up and nothing too revealing. Guys – clean up well, tuck in the shirt and empty a bottle of product onto your head if that’s what takes it to keep your hair from shooting up. You should look smart, classy and elegant. But do away with  three piece suits, you are not the CEO yet. Ask your HR manager about the dresscode and what they mean by casual Friday if there is one. Believe me, it has been more of casualty of late because of the lengths to which people take ‘casual’.
4.Be yourself
So you have been bitchy all your life and want to show your boss that you are the sweetest person ever born. Most people just can’t pull it off in one day. If you can, you are destined for greater things. You can not put a charade for too long and certainly not for 2 months. If you would like an improvement, work hard for one in your personality and start early. There is nothing like an overnight success when it comes to people skills.
5.Be attentive
Pay attention to what your boss and others say on the first day and take as many notes as possible. The first day will mostly cover the basic guidelines to adhere to and most companies are very particular about sticking to them. Also, the first day may also cover all the trivial-looking information such as how to solve a paper jam in the photocopier. If you don’t want to be the laughing stock for the rest of your term, learn them fast.
6.Do NOT start acting like you belong there unless you actually start doing so.
You managed to get a Google internship. Whoa, lets take the Rottweiler along. While it is true that Google allows dogs and it is perfectly ok for anybody who works there to take their dog along with them, it would be a good idea not to experiment with the little quirks on day 1 or  even in the first week. Stick around to observe how everyone is doing and start imitating only when you have learned the rules.
7. Smile
You can make or break your career with what you do with the set of brilliant white teeth that your orthodontist has worked so hard for. Smile genuinely so that it reaches your eyes. Don’t appear as if you have gone into shock with your cheeks pulled from both the sides. Use it judiciously and appropriately. IF there is one thing that can win over the heart of your boss, it is a good smile.
8. Be inquisitive
Ask as many questions as you can. But with an objective of learning rather than trying to show off how smart you are or to pull the other person down. Being genuinely curious about how things work and why do they work the way they work is  a great way to build up your knowledge and to also get noticed by rest of the team. Everyone loves to have a thinker among themselves.
9. Observation before Objection
Yes, you have the tag of the most premier education institute in the country on your shoulder and you have tons of new revolutionary ideas that you think the company must implement. But before you start dishing those ideas out to everyone or  start complaining about how inefficient or outdated company’s systems and policies are; try to understand from your manager or colleagues on why the things are the way they are. More often than not they would tell you some practical considerations which only experience can teach and which would make 90% of your ideas unfeasible from implementation point of view.
10. Have fun
While this a golden rule to live your life to the fullest, it can be applicable to internships also.It was completely your choice and you should apply only for ones that you are truly interested in.Don’t reach a judgement about how boring your internship/company/work/manager/colleagues are on day 1 itself. Even if you find the work boring, find ways to make it fun and intellectually stimulating.
Remember, everybody in your office had a day one in their lives. Don’t get upset if it didn’t go as well as you planned for. An internship is all about learning and the one who doesn’t make mistake would not learn a thing in his/her life. But be sure that you don’t commit a mistake that could have been avoided by a little effort from your part. Follows the three Ps to make most of your first day – Prepared, Patient, and Pleasant. All the very best for a successful first day and a successful internship.

Internship: Environmental Governance Programme

Location: IEEP Brussels office
Duration: 3 - 4 months (starting on 17 September)
Salary and expenses: Unsalaried placement with local travel and lunch expenses paid (up to €7/day).

The Institute for European Environmental Policy (IEEP) is a leading centre for the analysis, understanding and advancement of environmental, agricultural and related policies in Europe. We undertake work for a wide range of clients from the EU institutions, national and regional government departments in various Member States, agencies, parliamentarians, NGOs, and work closely with partners and academics on cutting edge policy research. IEEP has a full-time staff of about 25 based in London, and 12 based in Brussels, with a network of associates.

We currently have an internship vacancy in our Brussels office within the Environmental Governance Programme to contribute to a research project on the future strategic development of European environmental policy and the EU’s 7th Environment Action Programme. The intern will also support our work related to the future EU budget and the potential of financial instruments to address the EU’s climate change objectives.

IEEP Internship Programme
The IEEP internship programme aims to provide staff with assistance for research, administration and information, give students doing a Masters or PhD thesis an opportunity to get practical insights into their thesis topics, give graduates valuable work experience, and develop relations with university research departments. Interns should expect to gain exposure to current European policy issues and processes and the working methods of a small independent institute. While an element of the internship is likely to be administrative in nature, the focus is to provide interns with the opportunity to assist in research projects and report / paper writing, attend meetings with IEEP research staff and contribute to IEEP’s information and advisory services, where appropriate.

Internship Description
The IEEP Environmental Governance Programme works on a variety of research projects on cross-cutting and strategic issues within the EU. The successful internship applicant would undertake the following tasks within the Programme:
- The major share of the intern’s time will be spent in providing research and organisational support to a project on Charting Europe’s environmental policy future. The main tasks under this project would involve literature reviews and data collection. The intern will also support the organisation of a high level conference in December 2012 which will include participants from EU institutions, Member States and relevant stakeholders.
- The intern will provide research support to a project on the future EU budget and the potential of financial instruments to address the EU’s climate change objectives.
- Collaborating with other Programmes within the Institute, including the Environmental Economics Programme.
- Contributing to other organisational and administrative tasks in the IEEP Brussels office as appropriate.
Interns are normally asked to work 37.5 hours (5 days) per week unless agreed otherwise in advance; however, consideration would also be given to applicants wishing to work part time.

The internship would ideally start on 17 September or earlier.
The internship will be for 3 – 4 months.
During the internship period, interns are covered by IEEP’s workplace accident insurance, covering accidents at work and between home and work. This is not general health or property insurance.

Person Specification
Interested applicants should:
- hold, or be working towards, a degree or equivalent in environmental policy, environmental economics or related subjects;
- have a demonstrated interest in environmental policies;
- capacity to conduct literature research and analysis;
- have initiative and be flexible with regard to the tasks they may be asked to complete;
- be capable of working independently;
- have good communication skills, in particular good written and spoken English and the ability to present information in a clear, precise and accessible style;
- have good organisational skills and time management skills;
- be reliable and capable of paying close attention to detail; and
- have good computing skills.

IEEP is a relatively small organisation so, like other staff, the intern will be required to show commitment and flexibility in undertaking a range of general tasks in pursuit 3 of the smooth running, effectiveness and development of the Institute.
Candidates should either be EU citizens or have a suitable visa already in place that allows an internship in London.

Applicants should send a short (maximum one page) letter of motivation, a CV and an acknowledgement that the position is unpaid, to Annie Glynn, preferably by email using THIS FORM, or in a sealed envelope addressed to:
Annie Glynn,
Institute for European Environmental Policy (IEEP),
15 Queen Anne's Gate,
London, SW1H 9BU,

The email/envelope should be clearly marked: ‘Environmental Governance Programme Internship’.
All applications must reach us by 5pm Friday 31 August 2012.
Interviews might be held thereafter by telephone or face-to-face in the IEEP London office.
Due to anticipated interest in the post, we are unfortunately not always able to reply to unsuccessful applicants.
