As our Nathan Bishop AfterZone Interns moved into their second week on the job, a couple of them wanted to write about their experiences working with friends as part of a team. As Jaida and Alexis found out, sometimes teamwork can make or break a professional experience.
Hi. My name is Jaida Melendez. I am an After Zone intern. I love interning because I get to help out with jobs that only After Zone staff would do. Now, I also like working with my friends but sometimes it doesn’t go so smoothly. Like, on my first week, some people didn’t do their jobs.
For instance, sometimes, a friend of mine who will remain nameless doesn’t like to do her job. She eventually comes around, but it makes work more difficult. Still I love working with my friends. Shout out to all the interns who do their jobs. Overall they are great help and good additions to the team.
Hey, Alexis here.
I survived my first week as an Afterzone intern. I am halfway through my second week, and, I love it!
This week I am working with my best friend Keily who is also an intern. Working with a partner makes its easier to get the job done, because we can split the work and also have a great laugh.
I love my best friend, and having her work with me just makes the opportunity that much better. There are also other interns here that I did not know personally, so being partners with someone who is unfamiliar is something I also enjoy doing.
