VOICE OF INTERN II: HOW I SCORED A IN SIIP

by Ms. Nurul Najehah and Mr. Daniel Yusoff Bin Mustaffa

Going for internships is crucial in students’ learning development as it exposes students to the real-life work environment and develops soft skills for a future career. Therefore, getting yourself ready ahead of time will help you excel in your intern program. TVEX is delighted to have Ms. Nurul Najehah and Mr. Daniel Yusoff bin Mustaffa, who offered many valuable advice and approaches on how to achieve an A for SIIP.

During the session, Ms. Nurul Najehah suggested that we have a checklist on the timestamp to ensure that we do not overlook anything important throughout the internship period. Mr. Daniel Yusoff then mentioned that it is crucial to establish connections with industry experts before an internship in order to have better alternatives in finding placements beforehand. Do make sure to ramp up your résumé and never stop applying for any relevant internship openings, as it widens your chance and will assist you to succeed in SIIP. He then went over the dos and don’ts of the four main aspects of internships that are required: daily tasks, logbooks, reports, and presentations. Mr. Daniel encouraged that the logbook is to be updated every day or at least once a week to avoid data loss. Be sure to remember and fully utilize the speakers’ advice for your upcoming internship program.
