Communication with the interns throughout their internship. For me, I checked in with my mentor / advisor weekly to make sure I understood what I was doing well with and what I could work on. Other interns in my class had mentors that would rarely talk to them or keep up with them and it seemed they slipped through the cracks. While it’s something the intern should put effort into, I think management has an even bigger responsibility to make sure the communication lines are open. I’ve now seen 3 other intern classes come and go and it seems a lot of what contributes to whether they are given an offer, or choose to stay with the firm, falls back on whether they had strong communication with mentors and knew how they were doing throughout the internship. Everybody deserves the chance to learn, mess up, improve, and learn more

Job for fresher or internship? In JavaScript or PHP. My wife has completed Master's in Math (2019). She wants to start her career in IT. She has completed HTML, CSS, JavaScript and PHP (All at basic level). She has also created some small projects for learning. Does anyone has any references for internship or job as a fresher? Many companies asks to complete some assignment in some framework, like code igniter or some other. I think, as a fresher this is little bit tricky at the beginning.

Articling student in Canada (8 month internship with potential hireback), currently doing transactional work. I’m WFH and having a hard time building relationships with partners. I’m friendly/chat with associates and am on great terms with one partner who gives me work often, but not much else. The firm “encourages” reaching out to partners to chat, though I’ve tried and been essentially ignored. Partners rarely have enough time to give me feedback, so I feel they don’t have time to chat.
