Enjoyment Support & Guidance Environment & Location How Rewarding Was It? Average 4.5How many weeks was it for?30 weeksDate of completion01/2015Monthly payRM 1200What did you do?
I was given freedom and independence to do things and execute my projects in any which way I feel would make those tasks easier to be completed in the given duration. I was involved mainly in supporting the product service lines in Halliburton in terms of the IT aspect. For example, I was placed in charge of the Halliburton Service Manager & better the system so the SLO, SLA and performance metrics will be met in order to meet the minimum requirements which will be reviewed by the regional manager every quarter.
I was also given the task of managing the Equitrac Office Manager system, which controls all the usage of the network printers in all Halliburton offices in Malaysia (including the Sabah, Sarawak, Terengganu and Johor sites) and the amount of usage for every employee in Halliburton Malaysia. Aside from that, I was also in charge of the management of the FOCOM landline database as well as other administrative and office tasks assigned to me by my manager.A bit about your intenrship interview
My interview was done by the manager for my department. Of course, he started of by asking me to introduce myself & basic questions regarding the things I learn in my degree program as well as the course plan for my training. I was even interviewed on my knowledge regarding the organisation itself and the mechanisms of information systems in the oil and gas industry. No prior experience required but comprehensive general knowledge about current issues and news as well as good communication is.What did you learn?
I developed a significant amount of soft skills which include interacting or communicating with people from different age groups and nationalities. I also learnt the structure of oil and gas industry and figured out that the career world does not necessarily involve the things that we learn in the classroom, it also involves a lot of of management skills and the ability to divide time accordingly for things that involve priorities.
Working in a mega huge organisation in the industry has hopefully added more value to my resume and I learnt that having a good CGPA does matter as I marched into this internship with no prior working experience and armed only with my examination results to back me up.Was your supervisor supportive?
My supervisor from the faculty as well as Halliburton gave me immense support and guidance. Kudos has to be given to my company supervisor as he is always up to date with my progress and checks up on me frequently to see whether I have moved on forward with my duties. I tried my best to be involved in most of departmental duties and so far, he has been free and willing to help in anything.What could be improved? What could you have done better?
I guess, as an intern, I could have been more organised with my priorities as I tend to forget about the report and did that a little bit later than I expected. That is an area that I wish I had improved on.Advice for future interns?
To future interns, I guess the best advice I can give you is to be very alert and independent when it comes to your work. The career life at the office is not spoonfed like in the classroom, managers expect you to know more than you actually know and sometimes too many unnecessary questions can be a hassle for them. Of course, asking is good but for the things that we can find out on our own, find the answers on your own. Be alert and intuitive and most importantly, be confident. If you don't have the confidence, then fake your confidence. ;)
