  • In what ways might workplace conversations in formal and informal systems impact your internship?
  • How might you use these systems to your advantage in your internship?
  • Are there ways that you might be at a disadvantage in dealing with workplace communication systems as an intern? If so, what are some strategies you could use to manage your disadvantage and turn it into a positive?
