VOICE OF INTERN: HOW I SCORED A IN SIIP

by Ms. Lee Jin Hui, Mr. Elias Isaias Mapela Macuacua & Mr. Muhammad Haris Fahmi Bin Faizal Hisham

An internship is a professional learning experience that offers meaningful, practical work relating to a student’s field of study or career interest. It also provides student with the opportunity to explore and expand their career while also learning new skills. Certain students may feel unprepared or frightened about entering their internship as they are unfamiliar on what to expect. Worry no more, TVEX 3.0 has brought to you a fruitful session with our excellent students who managed to score an A on their SIIP to address all of your lingering questions!

Mr. Muhammad Haris, one of the presenters, said that he spent the most of his internship at home, where he had to face his laptop every hour. He advised that we take breaks during working hours to avoid being extremely weary. He underlined the significance of consulting our supervisor if we have any queries about the task at hand to avoid feeling left out. On top of that, Ms. Lee Jin Hui stated that her host company which is Top Glove has assigned her several jobs relating to her field, and that it is vital to seek assistance from your co-workers so that you do not have to bear the weight alone. She emphasized the need of planning our work by breaking down a task over numerous days in order to meet our objectives and aims efficiently. Finally, our final speaker, Mr. Elias Isaias discussed the importance of conducting thorough research about the organizations to which we applied before an interview to make a favourable impression. In a nutshell, we highly advise you to follow these tips and tricks while completing your internship programme later on to ensure a smooth transition and positive experience. Best of luck!
