I am one of 20 interns in four digital specialisms, and we'll be seeing a lot of each other over the coming year. Today was in central London, then we have two days in Croydon and two days working from home to absorb all the information we've had thrown at us.
There was an introductory talk, at which we were told we'd each beaten hundreds of applicants to get where we were. Then we had the dreaded 'talk to the person next to you and find out an interesting fact about them'. My interesting fact was that it was my birthday, which worked out well because someone bought a coffee for me in the break.
We were given new laptops, and it was a while before we all managed to get logged in, online and sorted. Then it was lunch, then we split into our specialisms to talk to our new colleagues and mentors.
The day started at 10:30 and was over by ten to three, but I had to absorb an awful lot in that time, and there is more to come.
And now: pub.
