What three words would you use to describe your internship experience?
Insightful, Fun, Enjoyable.
What did a typical day in the office looks like?
My daily tasks consist of writing articles, scout the internet for news regarding scholarships and issues related to higher education and scheduled social media posts for the day. I would also help updating information on our website regarding the institutions and the courses.
Did your internship experience give you an inside perspective into the working world?
Yes. Before I started my internship, I was clueless what exactly I could do with my degree (English). However, my internship experience allowed me to get a glimpse of the media industry. I have now gained confidence that with my degree, I could find myself a place in this industry in the future.

How did you find out about us?
My friend pointed me towards Times from a Facebook internship group.
What kind of challenges did you face in your internship, and how did you overcome them?
Sometimes, the ideas just won’t come. When that happens, I would ask my Supervisor or my team for help, and we’d start brainstorming.
Were you able to make any good memories of your experience, whether it’s within or outside your job role?
Meeting with so many new people and friends is one of them. Doing graphics work for newspaper supplements, working with clients on their designs was also a good memory.
Going to The Star every week was also a new and interesting experience for me. My internship was full of interesting and positive experiences.

What was your first impression of the company?
I expected the company to be more “corporate”, but it turned out to be a really chill place. Everyone was really friendly, too.
How was your internship placement as a whole?
It was a good experience. I had the chance to learn a lot, whether it was related to my course or not. My supervisor made sure I received all the help and support that I needed to get the best results.
How were mistakes handled and addressed by your supervisor and team?
They were very calm when they found out I messed up a few things. They would explain what I did wrong and guide me through how to make it right. It was a relief that they would help me out rather than scolding me about it.
