Berklee Blogs checks in with Camilo Puche, a Music Business major and fall intern, finishing up his internship with Conductor’s Cooperative Management, a management company providing worldwide representation and management for classical music conductors. In his final blog, Camilo tells us how interns can create a good impression by ending their internships properly…

As the internship experience comes to an end, it is a very good idea to leave things in the best terms possible with your supervisors and coworkers. Regardless of being offered a job or not, having had problems with coworkers or not, or any other good or bad experiences you may have had in the workspace, you should always try to leave behind the best impression of yourself.

It is important that you try to finish your assignments or projects before the internship is over, however, if for some reason beyond your control you are not able to finish them, you should inform our supervisors so that the job gets done.

This may require a great deal of effort and self-effacement on your part, but it is important that as you begin your career one builds a reputation of being responsible and hard working up until the last day you are on the job.

This is something that you should not only try to do on a job, but with teachers, colleagues, classmates, etc. Being able to do this may bring great benefit for you, as well as for the people that are close to you, as being able to leave things on the best terms possible with everybody will always open doors for you in the future, and sometimes it means that if you leave town you’ll always have someone to have coffee with when you come back, or you could always call to ask for a favor or offer your services to the people who once met you and were left with a good impression.

Mistakes are an Intern’s Best Opportunity



Although Camilo had always had a deep interest in music, it was not until he was in seventh semester of Law School in his hometown of Barranquilla, in the Caribbean cost of Colombia, that he decided to make a radical change in his life and become a full time music student. After only one year of private instruction, Camilo was admitted to the National School of Arts in Habana, Cuba and four years later graduated with honors from trumpet performance.

Camilo is finishing his last semester of Music Business at Berklee and is a current intern at Conductors’ Cooperative Management and Boston Concert Artists, two sister companies that provide representation for classical music conductors and world-renowned cellist Suren Bagratuni. He is fluent in Spanish, English and German, and is focusing in finding engagements for artists in Latin America and Germany.
