The team I was part of at Hootsuite immediately treated me as an equal and got me working on the same thing they were, and letting me choose which tasks I would attempt, as well as inviting me to all the team events and answering my never ending flow of questions (including a lot of really silly ones) without ever brushing them off or making me feel bad in any way for not knowing. To make it all even better, the team I was in wasn’t the only group of people I interacted with: Hootsuite has many coops and we’re constantly talking to each other about what we we’re doing as well as participating in events outside of Hootsuite as a group.
So far my time at Hootsuite has been great, and I look forward to 4 more months with them.
