Onboarding Tips For Junior Engineers

Your goal as an entry-level engineer is to show autonomy after you've completed onboarding. If you're an intern or new grad, you are not expected to know everything (or much of anything!).

  • The most important trait for early career folks is to seek feedback and act on it! Coachability is an important criteria for you (this is, in fact, how many interns are judged).
  • Don’t “solo carry” a project. Instead, create milestones to measure and show progress.
  • Pair programming is especially valuable for learning from coworkers and building relationships.
