First week of internship
A week has passed since I got here, and it is time to reflect on my initial experience. Since day 1, I have felt so humbled by the warmth everyone at SAP has extended towards me. My team has gone out of their way to make me feel included. I was invited to a get together on the first day (picture below) and was introduced to everyone on the team. I mean can there be a better ice breaker (for a foodie like me) than chocolate cake on my desk right after orientation 🙂 My ‘buddy’ Ning-Jing has been particularly very helpful in guiding me through everything around and making me feel comfortable.
Within the first week, my road map for the coming month has been discussed. The first project I am working on is the Duet Enterprise 2.0 product. My role is to work along with Ella in testing and updating the demo document. This will be the first step towards getting involved into demo creation, which is what I will be doing down the road. Going through the demo, I am able to teach myself everything about the product and its various functionalities.
One of the most impressive parts has been how well my roles and projects have already been structured. It is this structure that will assist me in having an amazing, educative and career-enhancing experience. I hope to develop lots of skills and contribute to the best of my ability. If week 1 is a preview of how these 6 months are going to be, I can state with surety, it will be one of the best experiences I will have had so far.
I recently graduated from Cornell University with my Masters in Engineering Management with bachelors in computer science engineering from BITS Dubai. I am originally from India, New Delhi.
