I just finished my internship orientation in Mountain View, and boy was that ever an experience…
On Monday, I left Chicago at 10 am, had an hour delay, and then was on the plane for five hours. I landed in San Jose around 2 pm, and my first stop was Adamson’s French Dip. I definitely recommend anyone in the area to check it out, the only sandwich place I’ve been to that compares is Al’s Deli, back in Evanston.
Tuesday was the first day or orientation. I had to get up at 7 (ugh!) in order to get to Google by 8 am, and from that point on it was a deluge of information. I kept hoping it would stop, but it never did - needless to say, by the end of the day I felt pretty nervous.
Over the next three days, I was kept pretty busy. In between meeting people, doing some small projects, and attending orientation lectures I was wiped at the end of each day, but I feel a lot less nervous now.
I’m really excited to get to work tomorrow and dive right in!
