During your first week in a new job or internship, there is a lot to learn in order to set yourself up for success. Our Summer 2023 Interns recently joined us so we asked them about the onboarding process and how they spent their first week with the organization. Read on to hear what they had to say.
“The first week was full of exposure, excitement, and learning. We learned about the different Business Units, connected with our managers and buddy, and started working on our first project. We even visited the Gurgaon office and met more colleagues in-person. The people at Gartner are polite, helpful, and enthusiastic. Overall, the first week went smoothly and nicely.” - Harmeet K., Research Intern, India
