It has been a really great experience undergoing my internship program at Consurv Technic Sdn Bhd and Dyna Segmen Sdn Bhd. these companies are not big compared to others but it gives a big impact on me. I love its environment the most because we are very close to each other, creating bonds like family. We share everything together, as everybody knows everything that is happening in the company.
Being a trainee in these companies has form a strong base for my future career. It gives me a good opportunity to develop my communication techniques where I realized that communication is the most important medium to success. If we are lack of communication , we cannot deliver the right message to others. I experience this situation during my tasks completion. Ineffective communication will lead to the unproductive results and made my tasks become more complex. For example, I got a warning letter from CUF Gebeng as there were just miscommunication between me and the client. If it gets worse, Dyna Segmen Sdn Bhd would have been blacklisted. Talking about experience to communicate with my colleagues and corporate clients, I would also point out that it develops my self-confidence and work ethics.
I did a lot of tasks for these two companies where they are operating different core businesses. I work independently and occasionally in team environments, do research, handle tenders, office jobs, registration and many more which lead me to be a multitasking worker. Those tasks are very different to my study field. I learnt a lot from that and it gives me a very big satisfaction when I successfully completed those tasks especially in handling tenders. These tasks are very challenging to me and make me acquainted with different people in person. Apart from doing the office tasks, I also do site visit in downstream plants and involve in several project in power plant as well as oil and gas plant. By expanding my scope of work, I gained a lot more experience and knowledge in both management and technical fields
These companies have trained and treated me as a real worker. With the status of a trainee, I am given the responsibility to handle most of companies operations either in documentation part until th delivery part as well as maintenance tasks. I played a big role in this company, along with other inters. My tasks are very critical and high risk as it involves the companies reputations. Should I do slight calculation mistakes, it can bring a big loss to the company. Those things pressure me a lot in the beginning but by experience, I manage to cope with them quite well and I manage to improve myself.
Being in these companies also trained me to be organized. The weekly meeting plays a big role to the company. There is where all staffs need to update their tasks and discuss any problem arising in their project. Before attending the weekly meeting, I need to follow up on all my tasks and be well prepared to present my tasks updates to the director. From there, I realized the importance of the meeting and staffs commitments to the company. I also learnt business tricks and how to cope with the problems wisely.
These work experience bring a great value for me. Maybe 8 months are quite short to learn the whole thing but I believe that quality is way more important than quantity. I tried to get as much knowledge from this internship program to become a very valuable employee in the future and as an addition to all of these I get a unique personal experience that obviously will influence me as a future professional in a very good manner. Thank you to Consurv Technic Sdn Bhd and Dyna Segmen Sdn Bhd for giving me the opportunities to gain knowledge and experiences here.
