Lessons Learned So Far: An Intern’s Perspective

I call it the real world because this is how I expect my career to be. I get up in the morning ready to hit the BART train. One thing I learned is that image is a must, so I always go to work in professional attire. I’ve had to adjust from backpacks to briefcases […]
