|How Rewarding Was It?|
I worked with the deal team for one of Malaysia's largest oil and gas companies in relation to SAP capability development for international countries, which included talent management activities. I was put under an analyst as my "buddy" who reviewed my progress throughout my internship. Majority of my work was to handle the presentations used for their teaching materials. I literally worked on more than a 1000 slides - making sure the slides are consistent and updated according to the standards given by the client. Unfortunately, I was not given a great amount of meaningful work and there were times I did not have any work at all.
I had to go through two interviews:
1. General screening by HR (basic questions about yourself)
2. Interview by project leader (general questions about your experiences and why you're suitable for the internship)
Great attention to detail. But also, this was my first internship in a large firm - I witnessed my firsthand of office politics. It was definitely something to experience eventually.
The analysts and consultants were very helpful and friendly. If I had any questions with regards to work or their experience as a whole in Accenture, they were more than willing to share with me.
I tried to be as proactive as I could - always asking if they needed help with anything, but they only had limited amount of work to give me. Most of their work was above my paid grade, I would say. There's only so much that could be done.
I may not have had a great internship, but it really depends on the project you get put into. I met many other interns in the same intake as me who enjoyed themselves a lot.
