You’ve finally gotten that spring internship, congratulations! Although you’ve pushed through the application and interview process, there’s still a lot more to come. But, there’s no need to worry. You’ve got this (it’s why the company selected you after all)!
To celebrate your accomplishment, and to help you through your internship, we’ve compiled a playlist to help put the “fun” in functionality. While you start organizing your home office, or begin the process to travel to your new workspace, we hope this playlist can help you be less nervous and get you in the work mindset.
Here is our Spring Internships Spotify Playlist:
#1 "Here Comes the Sun" by The Beatles
Of course, you’re starting your internship in the spring, so what better way to start the celebrations! Just like the sun coming out after a long day of showers, make sure to spread some joy in your internship by connecting with others. A lot of people are in the same boat as you so a little bit of kindness goes a long way.
#2- "Butterflies" by Kacey Musgraves

Internships are all about making mistakes. No matter how big or small, it can be disheartening to listen to feedback. However, things can always get better and you always have the chance to improve if you work hard enough.
#6- “Clean” by Taylor Swift
When you do start an internship, make sure to clean and organize your dorm or home workspace. Whether it’s buying a bedside shelf for your dorm room, or cleaning up some papers in your home office, get into this new start with a new organized space to work at.

No matter what your goals are by doing an internship, whether it’s growing a network or learning a new skill, it’ll definitely come true. It may be tough but the experience you will get will 100% help you in the future.
#9- "Shower" - Becky G
It’s spring after all, so whether you intern in-person or remotely, you’ll definitely be seeing some rain showers. Just like flowers after a long day of rain, make sure to reap the rewards of the hard work at your internship. You deserve it after all!

Internships are a great way to get some focused attention. Unlike regular jobs, you are able to get 1 on 1 with different team members and managers to find what’s best for you. Don’t be afraid to try new things and keep your eyes out for new opportunities within your internship.
#13- "Higher Power" - Coldplay
It can be hard to stay positive, but it’s important to look at the bright side of things. If you’re stressed or upset, try writing down five things you did well today. It really makes a difference when you aren’t bogged down with negativity.
