Currently I'm facing a tricky situation:
I'm a student and I've just started a software development internship at a large company (5,000 employees). The length of the internship is 4 months. The job description for the position was very appealing but unfortunately now that I am a few weeks into the position I've noticed the following:
- I feel as if I'm overqualified for the work. I don't mean to boast, I simply mean that the position appears to be intended to allow the intern to learn the skills to be able to complete the work assigned. Although there are always new ways to learn how to complete tasks, I find that I'm able to complete anything assigned to me with ease (and therefore my learning may be minimal).
My ultimate goal is to transfer into a position within the same company that will allow me to continue to learn and develop new skills.
What would be the best way to approach this situation?
I thought it would be wise to consult The Workplace first because I'm not entirely sure who within my company I should bring this issue to.
