I can recall the experience of first day at office. I was both nervous and excited. After being introduced to everyone, I wondered around the office. I knew no one and I had nothing to do. I couldn’t access the PC which Eskayef provided me. I roamed desk to desk to see what people are doing and how they are doing. When I felt tired I used to go back to my desk. I had lots of free time which eventually made me bored. But I liked the office environment and the people of the office.
First week of my internship was little boring. I didn’t have anything to do. It was like I’m going to office to sit around. I was very happy when someone gave me to reconcile something in Microsoft excel. I had no idea what I was doing. I was just following the instructions. Later I thought that no one will come and inform me about the organization. I have to go to everyone and ask questions. Then I started to go to different person’s desk and ask them about their job and different process of their job. This helped me to get to know employees.
I actually started working is second week. Though those woks are pretty lame but I enjoyed it because it was better than sitting around. Of course those lame jobs had some importance. What I used to do is checking the inventory amount of inventory account with the inventory report of the storeroom. This helped me to know the names of product of the Eskayef. Believe me it’s a real pain to working without knowing the names.
In third week my area of work expanded a bit. Eskayef uses a ERP software name ACCPAC. I saw people working in it and I wanted to use the software too. But I didn’t have any ID which was required for logging in the ERP. In the third week I did VAT reconciliation with another person. He taught me how to reconcile and how to input data in the ERP software. He let me borrow his ID and work in the software. Experience of working in ERP software was really interesting.
Till the third week I had enough free time. But in the fourth and the last week of the month I hardly had free time. In this week, my working area expanded a lot. Without the two break and launch break I hardly had time for myself and talk to others. Earlier I had to one single job at a time. But In this week I received two or more jobs at a time. Fortunately I managed to do everything is just in time. J
I had variety of experience in this one month period. Even though my work area is increasing and it’s becoming very hard, I really liked working in Eskayef. It’s not just I’m getting different facilities. It’s because the office environment is very good and the people are very friendly and helpful. I learned lots of new things while working as intern. I learned about the behaviors of people in different situations.
I don’t know about the experience of my friends who are working as intern in different institutions. I’m not going to compare my experience with them. But I am sure I have better experience than that of my most of the friends.
