As mentioned in my previous post, there was quite a learning curve when I started my internship. As I am an Information Systems Intern, I deal with a lot of the technology people. They also have their own language, talking about the AS400, EDW, data cubes and so forth. I have been picking up their terminologies but still learn something new everyday. Luckily, my manager and my mentor Nora have been incredible throughout my internship. Nora and I have weekly walking meetings where I ask her all my questions and just talk about our lives and time at Polaris. She was in my shoes at one point so she has been able to give me advice on my future options at Polaris.
I feel much better now that time has gone by at Polaris, I feel more settled in. I have lunch with the other interns in the cafeteria and they are really great. Everyone’s super friendly and easy to talk to. It is interesting to learn what everyone is working on, I feel like I know a lot about the company in these short few months, even though I know there is so much more to learn.
