How Do You Write an Internship Report?

Individuals write internship reports by supplying detailed information about what they did and what they learned throughout their academic or work-related internship. Internship reports vary widely. However, all of these types of reports must include three main sections.

The first section of an internship report includes an introduction. This section of the internship report lists the name and the address of the company that supervised the internship and the main focus of the internship, such as a microbiology department or a video editing room. The second section is called the "Discussion of Projects." Within this section, the individual lists her main responsibilities, such as conducting lab experiments, editing news videos or writing feature stories. The individual might also want to include how her skills contributed to the overall success of each listed project.

The third section of the internship report summarizes what the individual learned throughout the internship experience. It includes paragraphs detailing how the experience reinforced the individual's career goals or influenced the individual to redirect her career path. This section also includes any new work perspectives gained from the experience that derived from her needs being met or not being met in relation to what was required of her throughout the internship.
