Day1 & Day2
It's April 2nd and my second day as an apprentice is slowly coming to an end. The last two days have been full of information and so I’ll try to summarize my impressions in this blog post as good as I can.
On my first day, I was warmly welcomed just before 10 o’clock by my PPM (People & Practice Manager) Robert and my apprenticeship mentor Marcus. Robert & Marcus showed me my working space & introduced me to the colleagues in the office. It felt like I got to know hundreds of colleagues, hundreds of faces and thus hundreds of names. In case you don't know - I'm terribly bad at remembering names, so I'm sure I have to keep asking people for their names. So I felt a little overwhelmed, but I was warmly welcomed by all my new colleagues, which was a great feeling! 🙂
My second day began together with my second mentor Wolfram. He introduced me to the task list "Apprentice Onboarding", which every apprentice will work through. This list contains a lot of organizational tasks (e.g. account & calendar setup) but also some more general tasks like a small self-introduction to all colleagues in Slack which I already did the day before. ✓
After a short lunch break I joined Masha’s and Anastasia’s final presentation where they gave a talk about their time as an apprentice at HolidayCheck. Congratulations to both of you for graduation! 🎉
And tomorrow I’ll set up a blog in order to publish this post!
