The trick is: kicks someone's ass the first day, or become someone's bitch. Then everything will be all right.

How exactly does one go about kicking someone's ass on their first day? Does this involve blowing the competition out of the water with your performance or any thing else??

Isn't there a huge downside to being someone's bitch for the 10 weeks as well.

A lit more explanation would be much appreciated. Thanks.

People tend to think life is a race with other people. They don't realize that every moment they spend sprinting towards the finish line is a moment they lose permanently, and a moment closer to their death.

I'm sorry, but after I read:

gottamentor.com:

What are some classic mistakes that interns should avoid?

Ignoring junior members of the team - they are key in the hiring process and can give the most relevant insights into the role and who you should meet.

I couldn't take those seriously. You'd have to be pretty ballsy to just ignore the Analysts, I'd think.
