“My internship at home enabled me to collaborate on more international projects.”
My internship was all about embracing opportunities. I was surprised by the amount of responsibility and free reign given to me. Case in point: I was assigned a project on my Day 1 to complete by the end of the internship, in an area completely new to me!
My team's trust in me and encouragement gave me confidence to try out different approaches and express my opinions even being someone new. I truly felt like I was a valued team member.
While my internship was conducted at home, it didn’t hinder the experience. Working online gave me the chance to work closely with colleagues from international offices in Guangzhou, Japan and Thailand. I am happy that I can look back and say that I have learnt so much, thoroughly enjoyed myself and accomplished even more than I expected.
