Diniy

For 2017 Diploma in Information Technology (DIT) graduate Muhd Diniy Haiqal Bin Anuar, his internship with local telco M1 provided him valuable industry knowledge and exposure, which prepared him for the challenges of the workplace and enhanced his employability. 

"My internship with M1 gave me a chance to experience first-hand what it's like to deliver project-based work to a client within a set timeframe. I had the opportunity to design and develop innovative solutions for M1, which also helped to hone my problem-solving skills," Diniy said. 

His internship also gave him a taste of what it would be like to work in a customer service call centre – something he had never done before – as well as afforded him the opportunity to be mentored by experienced trade professionals before even entering the workforce.

"I had the pleasure of working alongside helpful colleagues and supervisors who guided me and clarified any doubts or queries that I had,” said Diniy. "With this experience, I am confident of my future in the IT industry." 


Overseas Internships

Mark

As a SOI student, you will also get the chance to go on overseas internships, like 2016 DIT graduate and valedictorian Mark Ignatius Teo Jian Hao.

Mark took up the opportunity to serve his internship in Taiwan at KAI Square, a leading multi-award-winning video analytics provider in Asia. During his four-month stint, he was tasked with software coding and testing, and business application development. 

According to Mark, his overseas internship allowed him to gain practical industry insights in addition to on-the-job training. Through his assignments, he was able to develop a sound understanding of the level of coding skills a professional programmer would need in order to work successfully in the industry.

At the end of his internship, Mark's supervisor offered him the opportunity to assist KAI Square in system testing and coding on other projects after graduation. He also returned from Taiwan with a new perspective on the IT industry and a greater awareness and understanding of his host country -- both attributes in high demand by employers in the modern workplace.

"The overseas internship is definitely a great opportunity that everyone should work hard towards,” Mark said. “If you have the chance to do so, make full use of the time there to learn more about the culture, explore the places and experience the local heritage, all while giving your best at work."
