Internship Day 1

By Jasmin Santiago

January 19: Today was the start of my new internship at Columbus Regional Health. To put into simpler words I was ecstatic and unbelievably nervous all at the same time; but hey it was my first shot at getting a taste of what to expect after graduation! I arrived at 9am in the Corporate building at the hospital and met with Jessica Word and Marion Scott, also known as – my bosses. But honestly I couldn’t be more thankful to have them as my new mentors for the year. Marion was a previous professor of mine and Jessica was a recent graduate from the Communications Department. Small world!

As I entered the Marketing department floor I got the opportunity to meet plenty of people immediately. It’s an understatement as to how awful I am at memorizing names. Considering so, I made a note that it’s definitely something to improve on.

First mission for the day: Complete employee testing and then get my official badge!

Jessica gave me the run down of what to expect with the test and how I could retake any section if I didn’t pass the first time. Since this was my first official day I didn’t want to disappoint and be known as ‘the intern that didn’t pass the test’, so I took it seriously. Jessica walked me over to the Conference hall where the computers were and I got started on the exam. The exam itself took about 3 hours to complete but in the end I passed every section! Afterwards I walked over to where I got my picture and badge taken.

I was now an official intern at Columbus Regional Health. Pretty exciting stuff, and in typical millennium style, a ‘selfie’ was taken to mark the moment. It was a great start to the week and I left right afterwards at 12:30pm.
