My Fisher Internship
First week: Check!

Written by:


I have had a good week. A great week, in fact. The week went fast after two days of training and many handshakes.

The preparation for the first week was an important key. I prepared accordingly, typical questions that passed my mind were: What will I wear? What questions will I ask? Who am I going to meet? Do I have my elevator speech ready? etc…

Besides all these questions I made a list of indispensable things I should take with me in my first day:

  1. Copy of my Resume
  2. Notepad and Pen
  3. List of names and phone numbers of people I meet through the interview process and hiring process
  4. Directions to different buildings of the company
  5. A brief description of my role and information about the company
  6. Any important document needed such as the hiring package
  7. List of questions about my role and the company

The training was very  dynamic including group projects with the goal being to learn about Unilever and about our roles in Supply Chain. I am very excited for what is to come, and I know I will gain tons of valuable experience. Plus, I have an amazing internship in the Global Team which means a lot of interaction with people from different parts of the world, which is something look forward to each day.

For instance, my first day at work (after the training) was all about meetings with different parts of the world. It was great! Also, I am learning about global market analysis and more.

Well, the first week is done and I can breathe a little, taking advantage of a long weekend (thanks to a holiday). Hopefully! In the midst of all of this preparation, I will be awaiting for my first individual project.

Until next time!
