It’s hard to believe we only have a few more weeks left in the internship -- somehow the summer has flown by, even in our remote setting. Nevertheless, the past week was pretty packed and the week ahead looks to be similar.
Two weeks ago I was approached by a headhunter (“Steve”) over email. This last week I got the green-light to speak about the company and the opening. This is a position at Citadel that has a starting salary of $400,000, not including bonus.
7 weeks have passed, and that is truly hard to believe. Writing weekly blog updates has made me more aware about the passage of time, and how slippery it is. The main differentiatator of the weeks is the different speakers that we have the opportunity to listen to and interact with.
As week 6 is behind us, I am thinking about how much more I could have accomplished by this time if I were there in person. Considering that the research is mostly hands on experimental work, I imagine it would be much more.
And so, the Podcast begins, the first official episode was recorded Friday night and I will be posting it sometime next week. I’m very happy with how much I learned from the setting up the Podcast and look forward to making every episode better than the last.
