A growth mindset for a successful internship abroad

The key word to a successful internship is staying open-minded. In other words, one should be open to criticism and  constructive feedbacks in order to improve the quality of their work. Derek suggested prospective interns should act as a sponge during their internship abroad. Try to absorb as much knowledge as possible. Seize your chance to learn from experienced supervisors.
