On 27 May-26 July 2013, I had an internship in PT.HM. Sampoerna Tbk.It is a cigarettes company in Indonesia that is an affiliate of Philip Morris International. I worked in Information System and specifically assisted Security Control and Finance team. This is my first internship and also my first job. It was interested and challenging for me to work in IT department which deal with software that I never knew before, such as SAP and SNow. However, by the help of my supervisors who trained me patiently, I gained knowledge and skill. In the end of the internship, I have to present in front of them and a manager to perform what I have learned during two months. I felt so blessed that I got positive response and a souvenir from the officers. I loved to have an internship, because I could prepare myself for my future job and broaden my network.
Something that needs to be underlined is that I am an industrial engineer, but I was an intern in IT department. In a future, sometimes a job that you’ll get is not always suitable with your major, so just be prepared and never limit yourself to learn as much as you can.
