|How Rewarding Was It?|
I involved in two main projects.
When I first joined Flexiroam, Flexiroam has striked a partnership with Malaysia SEA Games Contingent 2015. I was in charge the whole process flow of the project and ensure every contingent receive their FREE Flexiroam SIM Card before they travel to Singapore for SEA Games.
After 8 weeks, I started to handle a project named 365 Program. This program was about partnering with various travel agencies from Malaysia and Singapore. I was handling the back end documents which including agreements, invoices, Flexiroam vouchers and so on. Besides, I also had the opportunity to speak to the Travel Agencies regarding on our partnership program.
Other than that, I was assigned to handle various minor projects every week.
I feel very grateful that Flexiroam did not treat me as a intern and they even gave me ownership to handle different projects.
There are interview questions such as: What are your strengths, what are your weaknesses, tell me more about yourself (which are not mentioned in the resume).
My biggest lesson in Flexiroam is to treat everyone as your family while you are in work. This does not only increase your interest in the work place but also your productivity on your job. Not only that, it increases the teamwork when you are treating others as your family because you have faith in them. It often helps you to achieve something big if you are faithful in each and everyone in the team.
Basically, my supervisor do not offer me any support because he always trusted in my ability in work. However, he will always help whenever I have doubts or any questions. My supervisor will not refuse to answer all my questions and he is very willing to assist whatever I need.
I should have take initiative to attend more events. Although I handled a lot of projects in Flexiroam, but I participated only two events through out my internship period. I wished to participate in more different events such as partnership events and career fair events. I should have requested to participate in such events.
Although Flexiroam is practicing Family-Oriented Culture, it doesn't mean that you can enjoy by joining Flexiroam. You have to make sure that you are keen to contribute your time and effort. Flexiroam is a growing company, their office is not huge and the workload is considered high. However, as an apprentice in Flexiroam, you will always learn more than you thought.
