Great topic and valuable content. My two cents: I don’t think refactoring is a proper task for a junior, especially a newcomer.

Fair point! Refactoring helped me learn a lot, but definitely not at the very beginning of my first dev job. Plus it needs to be presented in a helpful way (what's the goal, why is the current approach not ideal, etc).
