The first take-home point I picked from Faith’s Chronicles of an Intern is “Don’t just work, show you are working”. This smart, almost Machiavellian principle reminds me of Robert Greene’s 48 Laws of Power for its intense go-getter and the-end-justify-the-means ideology. And this book seems to do a lot of that especially relating to the corporate world of business and professional vocation. Nonetheless, this is a smarter way to maneuver your way through your profession and the corporate world.
Faith’s experiences interning with notable organizations provides the canvas for this book and the book is as rich as the experiences the writer gathered as an intern.
Of great importance is the fact that the writer almost always provides a background for his arguments either from his personal experiences or from notable experiences from others that will drive his point home.
In this book, the corporate world is laid bare and stripped of its mysteries through the keen eyes of a resolute and resourceful observer. You’d be surprised at how much you are not maximizing your potentials in your career until you meet this book.
This book has clever means that will aid you to create your own vocational niche, take charge of your career, become innovative and get to the top of your career at the shortest time. It is amazing how one opportunity opens ways for other opportunities for the writer, and still yet another one, only because he has proven himself as a dependable worker for his employers and a worker that has the capacity to contribute to the economy of the companies. This is the spirit that Faith’s Chronicles of an Intern is calling the readers to imbibe: that can-do spirit, fierce and resolute, as well as innovativeness to fit into the demands of the 21st century.
I’ll call this a bible for interns because Faith has done a comprehensive analysis of what it takes to be a successful intern.
He didn’t just do this alone; he introduces successful interns at different spheres of life to contribute the secrets that led them toward a successful internship. This is typically the how-to and how-to-not kind of book for internship and potential interns should do well to savour the richness it carries.
This is an applaudable effort, and I can only imagine how much potentials the author has to be this much of an achiever at a relatively young age. There are stories to inspire readers and develop potentials, and the author adequately captures them in Chronicles of an Intern. The writer takes the reader through nine lessons that should be noted by an intern and all of them plausible.

I believe this is everything you’ll need to know before embarking on your journey into an internship, and Faith has covered this aspect of our career in its social, occupational, physical and even psychological perspectives.
