As a new software engineering intern who recently subscribed to Taro Premium, how can I effectively leverage the platform and its available services? What internal and external resources should I familiarize myself with to ensure a successful and productive start to my internship?
PS: My internship begins this week.
Excited for the start of your internship and we're all rooting for you! What I'd recommend:
Here's a blog post I wrote about succeeding as a SWE intern.
Rahul and Michael have nailed it in terms of how to "succeed" as an intern.
The only thing to add from me is this - use your internship and Taro to figure out if you actually want to pursue this career.
The best way to do this is talk to a lot people, both here on Taro and at your work. Ask people about their journey and figure out whether you would like to spend a significant amount of your life tackling similar challenges.
As an intern you can still easily change course and do something else either adjacent to software engineering (PM, UX, Sales, Marketing, HR, etc) or pivot to entirely different industries. Doing due diligence now on how you feel about the industry will go a long way to keep you motivated, especially through the bad times!
