As a young college intern with not too much experience, working at Satori has been an eye-opening experience to say the least.
Through Satori and my own self-reflection, I’ve learned some valuable lessons that I want to share with you.
- You’re here to learn.
I don’t like making mistakes. Actually, let me rephrase that, I HATE making mistakes. Despite my hatred of them, I’m human. On days where everything goes wrong, you have to remember you’re here to learn. You’re doing things you’ve never done before. It’s okay to be wrong. It’s okay to make mistakes. Don’t focus and fixate on your mistake. Learn from it and move on.
- Don’t make silly slipups.
Read, click, read again, and show your co-workers if you need an extra set of eyes. Be careful not to make tiny mistakes that could have easily been prevented. If you’re tired, drink some tea, or coffee, or maybe a snack. It will do the trick and you’ll have more energy to complete all your tasks.
- You’re not going to love every single thing you do.
At the end of the day, you have to ask yourself, “Is it worth it?” If the answer is yes, then do the work, be excited, and do a great job. Now if the answer is no, you may want to look into doing something else.
- Having a good work environment
Being in an environment with good people & good vibes is an absolute must for being happy in your workplace. You don’t have to love everyone you work with, but being able to laugh and talk with your co-workers helps work feel less like work. For instance, here at Satori, we like to take short dance breaks. I highly recommend them if you need a little boost in your day!
- Pick a job that helps you grow
One of my favorite things about working for Satori is that they really care about my self-development. In August, I will be given an evaluation in which I will learn what I excel in and what I don’t. I’m going to learn what I need to work and improve on so that I can be a better asset to the workforce. It’s scary and exciting at the SAME time.
- YOU do YOU
This is a common saying in the Satori office. It’s important to be yourself. As long as you’re not being rude and causing mischief, you should take pride in your quirks and let your personality shine.
It’s been a journey working for Satori, and my time here as an intern is quickly running out. I’m ready to soak up as much marketing knowledge as I can before my next venture! Oh, and if you’re interested, take a listen to the new song of the week!
