YOLO, You Only Live Once. That is my motto, and the first thing I said to myself when I woke up on the first day of my internship. I was obviously nervous, but had a blast on the drive to the office. I met with my supervisor Vivian, and we discussed the tasks I had for the week, and which days I would be coming in. We also talked about the layout of the firm, and about each of her partners and their specialty in law. Vivian is great, and I know I will enjoy working with her. She is definitely a role model to me, especially because we both come from the same cultural background and have the same interests, politically speaking. The firm is currently going through some changes, and they are trying to computerize everything. They are also switching their database to PCLaw. Vivian told me that they are still new to it, and learning how the system works. I watched the tutorial for the program, and spent the remainder of my time inputting data for cases. When I was about to leave I told vivian about how I am kind of a computer geek (which is totally true), and how I was going to look into the program more on my end to further learn the system. She told me that would be great, and that if I learned the system properly that maybe I could teach it to the rest of the firm. So when I left I spent a few hours over the weekend looking up the database and tutorial etc. I think I have got a good grasp of it, and for sure I will master it this week. Hopefully before I go back on Wednesday and show my newly acquired skills. You know what they say, dress to impress!
Oh and I met the clerk at their Palos Hills office, we talked a bit before my supervisor came in to work. I Love her, she is really sweet. I really think I am going to like it here. YOLO!
