1. Respond with “will do” when you get a task so they know you’re on it
2. Take good notes and calls and don’t participate unless you’re called on or it’s under 5 people
3. Take 5 extra minutes to double check spelling and formatting. One mistake and your analyst will never trust you again
4. Check in at 7 PM to see if everything is good for the night / how you help
5. Don’t ask to model and do important shit if it’s two rungs above your skill set. Learning is important but being seemingly competent is more important
6. Set all excel files to no gridlines (altWVG) and set print area (altPRS alt PRW1 and altWI). Makes you look legit

No problem. You’ll do fine. Know your role but interns can add a lot value if done right

It is your job to sweat the small stuff (typos, formatting, etc).

Always have an opinion ready, but don’t share it readily. There’s going to come a point where you’ll have been listening in many conversations, not have said a word, and someone will finally ask you what you think. Many people respond with a blank stare - since they had never talked before, they didn’t think they needed to have an opinion. It’s these moments that matter.

Have empathy for the fact that we’re all operating in a different environment including virtual internships.

Two monitors/ultra wide is life.

The worst thing you can do is ask to step up and fail. At that point it’s game over. And don’t complain about your evaluation at the end of the internship if it’s “meets expectations.” I was once challenged on giving that rating to an intern who had the offer in the bag... they believed they “exceeded expectations.” Fought till the bitter end and left empty handed with no offer.

I second what everyone else has said - sweat the small stuff and you’ll earn the trust of those above you. Keep a calm, cool demeanor, and be a team player. Also, don’t get blackout drunk with your team - know your limits and stick to that minus one drink.

Never complain, even if something bothers you. Power through the few months and stay positive, even if work sometimes is bad and exhausting.

What you should do when dealing with a very toxic worker that keep on sending passive aggressive messages to you as well as in group chat and email.
Things like when you answer his question he respond: I know that
Or when he keeps on saying my change requests were just minor in group meeting but actually not.
And keep on saying how hard he works when he clearly wasn’t and already underperformed compared to an intern level.

How to not let this toxic co-worker not poison me any further?
