Some issues that the company you work for takes into account when hiring are:

  • Creativity;
  • good communication;
  • flexibility;
  • analysis capacity;
  • leadership;
  • good interpersonal relationship;
  • Ease of working in a team.

It is important to say that the workload of an intern should not interfere with his/her school schedule.
