Treat your internship like a real job and make sure it is purposeful. I can go back to the Milwaukee Aces website and see what I did and I can appreciate it.

I tried to always sit with the promotions director whose job closely correlated with what I wanted to do. I got to do 'meet and greets', learned the lingo and it was very helpful.
