4 things I learned from my internship that helped me grow

  1. Start strong, end strong
  2. Feedback is everything
  3. You are responsible for your own career
  4. Have fun

Feedback is Everything

This is definitely an important one. Feedback is what drives us to be better at whatever we do. It is the fundamental on which the idea of competition exists. Competition in turn yields better output.

You are responsible for your own career

Have fun

This one is simple…
