On the very first day of joining, we, the 100+ interns had our introductory session. Then, I got a call from my manager welcoming me to the TEAM.
About company! What's the work? What will be my role? A large number of products! So many thoughts, so many questions, and a lot of information, but no worries, I got a mentor cum buddy who was always there to guide me.
Then comes the most important part for which I was there, to learn and add value to whatever I do. I learned about the product on which my team works and also came to know about my project. When I started with my project, I was a college student with very minimal knowledge of how things work in industry and I was going to work on a completely new tech stack. Some days can be frustrating but one needs to keep doing the hard work instead of panicking to reach excellence. Also, knowing that how meaningful is the work that I am doing and is adding a lot of value in problem-solving gave me a constant motivation to keep learning and finding out the solution for every obstacle that came on my way. You need to know that there is no shortcut. A lot of challenges will come, but as per the age-old saying, "Hard work always pays off".
