As my internship is progressing, I am quickly realizing how important it is to be efficient in Excel. I was really nervous at first because Excel is not a program that I use often for school or my daily life. When it comes to organization, I am the type to write notes and thoroughly organize details into a planner. Another thing that I find to be very difficult is that I am the first intern that this office has ever had. Therefore, as a team, we are all figuring what works best together. There are no guidelines that explain how to complete my project so I find myself a bit frustrated at times.
Although I feel happy that they entrust me with such a complex project, I also find that my work is going by quite inefficiently because I am continuously asking my supervisor questions. I started writing everything down so I wouldn’t inconvenience her but I still think there are a lot of components of the project that they find to be intuitive that I need to be taught.
I foresee that there may be many mistakes on my first project and that I will have to undergo many rounds of changes before my team is satisfied with the outcome of the project.
