What lessons did you learn during your internship that you just couldn’t learn in the classroom or from a textbook?
What have you learned in the classroom that you have leveraged in your internship?
What are the most important skills (business/technical) and people that you have discovered in your internship? Is there a skill that you didn’t have before but realize that you absolutely need? Is there a person that you discovered that you definitely want on your side (besides your boss of course)?
I hope everyone is learning a lot in your internship. Here is question #2. Please comment on this and feel free to respond to other’s comments as well.
What are some of the important things that you had to find out on your own–having to do with the company culture and/or things you wouldn’t normally think you have to ask for…finding the bathroom, finding where to get coffee in the morning, etc?
I hope everyone is off to a good start at your internships. We have 7 people that will be responding to questions throughout the summer. Please feel free to respond to one another here if you have questions or comments.
The first question is easy: Where will you be working? What will you be doing?
Please post a comment to this post and share with everyone what some of your responsibilities will be this summer. Others may have questions or may be doing the same types of things.
Please be sure that your user ID is your name and not your TU email alias. There is an easy way to change this. Let me know if you need help.
