This summer I am doing an internship with a local company. This internship came to me unexpectedly – I knew it was a possibility that I would get it, but it wasn’t until right before it started that I found out I’d gotten it. Getting the job changed my summer plans drastically and I accepted without knowing almost anything about the job. I was just happy to have something to do this summer that was even remotely related to the field I am studying.
The surprise was that this opportunity is far better than I could have hoped for. I’m doing interesting work in a pleasant environment and learning things that can actually apply to my future career. I have, unexpectedly, found myself in a fantastic position. I am going to spend my summer taking as much advantage of it as I can.
Have you ever been surprised to find yourself with a great opportunity? Have you ever liked a new job much more than you expected to? I want to hear your stories of success!
