Now more than ever, your ability to find your own voice and speak your mind is critical, but one of the biggest issues these days is that young people are afraid to speak up because of many reasons. They sometimes feel that their views and opinions are unwelcome, but students should and must realize how much it is necessary to let their voices be heard, not only inside the campus, but also in a professional workplace.

Your ability to speak your mind is one of the things that will set yourself apart from the crowd and this skill is something that is best practiced through internships. According to UNIGO, internships are an important part of college where students can test out work life, and establish important and helpful contacts after they graduate from college. It is a perfect venue for students to have a practical application of the theories they have learned inside the classroom.

So, to make the most of your internship, learn to find your voice and speak your mind to bring value to the company without overstepping on your limits as an intern. Here is how you can do it according to ULoop.

Keep calm and speak up

How you say things matter a lot. Most of the time, it is not just about what you say, but how you say things. It is perfectly okay to speak your mind and share your insights, but the most important thing is that you stay cool and calm when you say it.

Be respectful

When you feel the need to speak up, remember that it is important to stay as respectful as you can, with the right choice of words and the right tone. Do not forget that you are still an intern and you surely want to let your boss know you value his position and authority.

Be concise

People in the workplace are very busy so when you raise a suggestion, make sure that you keep it short. They might not have all the time to hear you out.
