University: Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS (UTP)
Course: Information Technology
Internship Period: 7 months
I was ecstatic that I finished my 7-month internship at Consurv Technic without the idea of giving up. I was quite satisfied with the working life experience that I gained throughout the period especially with the fact that I learned to overcome most of my limitations. Given that I am afraid of heights, I did what I had to do to make it happen when I was assigned to work at heights. Consurv exposed me to the reality of working life because they never treat us like an intern but a real employee. Furthermore, I learned how to handle myself during sessions with clients even though I always get so nervous during meetings. I really enjoyed road trips during site visits as it gave me the opportunity to travel to other parts of Malaysia. In fact, I love working on site more than in the office.
It was nerve-wrecking at first working as an engineer as it is not easy – making people listen to you as well as being the expert in the subject matter. However, other employees at DynaConsurv especially my intern mates helped me a lot during tough times, and we worked like a family. That is what I love the most about this company.
In addition, it was a bonus to have a great working environment. Consurv has very flexible working hours. Even though the workload was heavy, my Consurv family never failed to cheer me up every day. I really enjoyed my time staying late in the office just to hang out with them by playing cards, watching movies, chit chatting and sometimes helping other employees pack their stuff for site visits. I will really miss every moment with them.
I would like to thank all of you for being so good to me and for being so understanding and sensitive towards my feelings and needs. I will never forget each one of you who have been part of my awesome internship life. You all taught me something that I can treasure for life. This is not goodbye yet since I am sure I would not be getting over Consurv anytime soon and I will surely visit all of you again.
