Meeting team for first time

Software Engineering Intern at Taro Community5 days ago

Hey all, I am an intern at my company (where I want to return full-time). My work is fully remote and I am meeting my team members in-person for the first time this week for lunch + games (and with some of them I have not even talked with virtually). Want to get some tips on how I can create a great impression (e.g. what things to talk about with them, etc)

    Since you know most of your teammates from a work context, you can try to talk with them about non-work work, like what they like to do for fun.

    This quote comes to mind for me: "The best way to be interesting is to be interested."

    Ask thoughtful questions about what people work on, what they do outside of work, and share interesting observations. I wouldn't overthink it -- just be positive, enthusiastic, and curious!
