Sould I ever hire an intern, this is a note to my future self.
I started a new internship two weeks ago and I felt very welcomed. Just like home. My boss made my first few days much more enjoyable than I would have expected, by making my life easy. In a nutshell, I was provided with:
- A place to sleep on the first day
- A few Lyft rides to go around
- A transit pass (for buses, subway, train) topped up with a few bucks
- I was not left alone at the airport upon my arrival
I was introduced to key people soon enough (co-workers mostly) so that on the first day of my internship I already felt comfortable. Likewise, I got to see my workplace before the beginning of my internship.
Finally, I received help and support regarding paperwork and all the stuff I had to do (getting a Social Security Number for instance).
That's it. Of course I am grateful to my boss and would like to thank him. Hopefully, I'll do as well as he did, should I get the chance some day.
