Hello fellow campers,
I just got accepted into a paid internship program in a remote-first startup that has been founded 6 months ago, and it happens that i am the first trainee in the company’s (brief) history. So my brain has been slamming me with questions left and right that boil down to this :
Is a remote environment a viable way for a trainee to get real world experience ?
If the answer to the first question is positive, and taking into account that I will be their first trainee, What should I look for / do / propose to get the most of this ?
Should I be looking for specific things in my contract as a trainee ? (health coverage comes to mind)
If my role has any importance in the decision, I will be working in a front-end leaning position using either react native or ember (depending on wether I get assigned in a web or mobile project), as well as help streamlining the development process
I should also note that I have no experience using these 2 technologies, having just started learning react.
PS: If some of my fellow campers want to know the specifics (the how) of getting the job (what I did, what I mentioned in the interviews, the process etc…), as well as what I think got me the job (I didn’t post for jobs, but took the alternate way of getting myself out there networking with devs) I will create a new post covering just that
