Mentorship May 10, 2017
The first day of my internship with Entity, I had no idea what was in store for me. I was both terrified and excited, yet ready to take it on full force. Along the journey, I was faced with many challenges, all of which proved to be beneficial to me as an individual. Here are 3 ways my Entity experience challenged me.
Working eight hours a day, Monday through Friday, was a major adjustment for me. I was only used to working part time positions that weren’t five days straight, and I am definitely not a morning person. At first, this was exhausting and my brain seemed to shut off midday, but after a few weeks passed, both my mind and body started to become accustomed to this schedule. Having the experience of working a full time job is great to possess for my future.
I know what topics I enjoy, what my interests are, and what I prefer to not delve into. Well, at least I thought I did before my internship. Entity broadened my horizons and required me to look into various topics that I either had no idea were relevant, or just never took the time to research. Initially, looking into subjects I had no previous interest in made me lose focus, but then I began to realize that opening up my eyes to new things is essential and a great learning process.
In school, I would be the student to wait until the last minute to complete all of my assignments (yes, I know that’s not good). Here at Entity, procrastination was out of the question. If I wanted to complete my work before the end of the day, I needed to be focused and put in the effort. I can carry this no procrastination work ethic on with me in school and my future endeavors.
