Hello, I'm Leonarda, an intern at Calimero, and I'm here to share my journey on becoming the best blockchain intern! Join me in discovering the exciting world of Web3 from a fresh perspective.
Starting my internship at Calimero was like being tossed into a pool of new things to learn. It was confusing at first, a mix of fun and challenges, but eventually, I found my rhythm. These are the steps that i took to grow my experience as an intern:
Step 1: Onboarding
The initial weeks were all about getting oriented and trained. Even with prior work experience, I felt like I didn't know how to start my computer. But, getting to know the company inside out laid the foundation for understanding the work, my responsibilities, and how I could make an impact. It clarified what Calimero and Web3 were all about.
Step 2: Diving into Projects
Once I got the hang of things, I took on operational tasks and had the responsibility of managing my own work. It was challenging but rewarding, enhancing my problem-solving skills and giving me insights into company operations.
Step 3: Constant Learning
At Calimero, the spirit of learning is always in the air. Beyond diving into blockchain, I joined insightful marketing workshops led by Paula. These sessions weren't just about theory; they equipped me to write blogs like this and handle our social media presence effectively.
Now, we're shifting gears into design workshops. My game plan? Blend my marketing insights into creating impactful designs for Calimero. It's like putting pieces together, using marketing smarts to craft visuals. Learning is a constant, and it's adding an extra layer of excitement to my journey here at Calimero!
Guidance and Mentorship
In the mentorship game at Calimero, Matea and Paula are my go-to guides. Matea is super organized and professional, making learning feel like a steady journey. Her energy not only sets a positive vibe but also makes me want to learn more and aim higher.
Now, Paula brings a different flavor. Working with her isn't just about tasks; it's like a creative adventure. She makes my brain think in creative ways, and I appreciate the challenge.
These two mentors give me different skills I can use in my career. Matea's structured guidance helps me be disciplined, while Paula's creativity adds a cool spark. It's a balanced mix of serious learning and creative vibes, making my journey here at Calimero really valuable.
Lessons from Web3 Internship
My time at Calimero has taught me a diverse skill set, including web3, project management, and effective communication. I've learned the importance of networking, meeting colleagues worldwide, and enjoying the startup energy. As I prepare to transition from my role, I feel equipped with the right skills and a solid understanding of the Web3 world.
I'm genuinely grateful for the chance to be part of the Calimero team and connect with interns like Fran, a talented software engineer. Working alongside peers who share similar goals has been an incredible experience. The collaboration with Fran and others has created a fantastic dynamic where we're all moving toward common objectives.
