Your teachers were right… you never stop having to do stuff you don’t love. While “intern” is no longer a synonym for “coffee-wrangler-in-chief,” your placement will probably include some tasks you aren’t totally into — no matter where it is in the world, or what industry you’re working in.
Getting to do what you want in this world is rare and beautiful. When you’re handed a task that doesn’t stoke your particular fire, you need to throw yourself at it twice as hard to get the most out of it.
If you just suffer through the parts of a job you don’t like, they’re always going to suck – but if you put everything into them, they become as rewarding as the tasks you live for.
Whenever you face a challenge during your internship, remember that it’s also an opportunity.
