asking for time off during an internship

Asking for time off during my first summer internship

There are many different ways to take time off during an internship. Here are some ideas:

1. You can ask your supervisor or manager for a specific amount of time off, usually around 10-15 days depending on the type of work you do. This will help you recharge and get back into the swing of things.
2. If you’re not sure how much time off is necessary, talk to your supervisor about it and find out what’s best for both of you!
3. Don’t be afraid to ask for more time off if it’s warranted by the project or if there’s something that’s preventing you from being fully productive (like taking care of personal matters). That said, don’t forget that when applying for jobs, some companies prefer candidates who’ve been in their position longer than others so getting too comfortable could be a bad thing!

Depends on the place. I’ve heard of places that wouldn’t let you, but ask them. I wouldn’t have a problem with it – I have an intern with a vacation and another who’s taking part in a national competition. Just ask.

Depends completely on the culture of the place and the report you have with your team. I was able to casually ask my PM if I could take a week off and he said “yeah, I don’t see why not”. But that’s because I worked closely with them and had a good relaxed relationship. If they would have said no, I wouldn’t have felt bad. Obviously, you go into the conversation tentatively, but asking in a nice way can’t hurt.

For some internships, it’s totally possible to take a few days off or ask to take a week off in the middle and extend it a week in the end. I really depend on the situation and how flexible the program is. Maybe just gently feel it out with the HR person who did your paperwork and/or your hiring manager.

It depends on what it is. It could be fine or make you look like a moron. I’m guessing it’d be the latter since you aren’t saying what it is.

it’s a summer music festival I attend each year. Is that bad? does it make me look like a moron? I am more than willing to make up that time.
