As I said before , I will share with you guys about my internship story from the beginning (how and what company that I applied) until the end of my internship . But it wont be in one long entry , I will seperate them into beberapa entries .
For example , in this entry , it would be my first internship application .
Actually , I didnt know where and what company should I apply as Im a mathematics management student je . But the first firm/company that had crossed my mind was Bank Negara . I thought maybe boleh kot bank --> maths so yeah . Tawakal , who knows kan kalau rezeki .
At first , I was wondering does Bank Negara provide an internship programme and how do I apply for an internship at Bank Negara . Because , I googled it out tapi tak jumpa apa apa . I was so curious so I sent them an email .
One tip I want to share here (which I think it works---maybe lah) , if you want your email to be noticed or answered quickly , send your email at any company early in the morning . Because at this time , the person in charge mesti tengah check email and suddenly your email pop up . So mesti lah they take note and not just ignore your email . Yakin je i ..haha
Unexpectedly , esok paginya , I received a reply from Bank Negara regarding my internship application . Seriously , couldnt believe that Bank Negara would reply this fast .
They not only answered my questions but they also attached the internship application form , the organisation chart of BNM for me to choose which department I interested in and some other forms .
Lepas completed the forms , I posted them to the address given by using Pos Laju wokay -_- (Mind you , masa nak mohon internship ni memang pakai banyak duit sikit , dengan nak print banyak benda , nak post all the application lepas tu nak pergi interview lagi...duit oh duit)
Then you know how long I wait for the answer ? I sent the application on March , received the call for an interview was on....August . Hahahah 5 months , no joke , I almost gave up with Bank Negara . Ohh Yes , they have interview for the internship intake .
Yes......its me haha sorry mata grey taknak kalah k.
It was my second internship interview after Khazanah (I was called for an internship interview at Khazanah before but I didnt pass the interview ha ha ....it was...so funny to remember ha..ha. Will write more about this on my next entry , if I rajin ) . This time the interview was okaylah , better than Khazanah , the interviewer asked me a lot about my curricular activities experience , sebab the interviewer nak orang yang aktif join uni event , boleh jadi mc or pernah lead event and ada high leadership skills . (Nasib baiklah masa last semester ada joined beberapa uni event , itupun last minit baru nak join haha so boleh lah jual dekat interviewer , fuhh~)
So about a week later , I got a call from the department , told me that I passed the interview .Alhamdulillah , but its quite sad because I had to reject the offer as before I got the call from Bank Negara , I already receieved an internship offer from Tabung Haji .
Actually I dont know which one to choose , honestly , I prefered Bank Negara as its my dream company and it was my first ever internship application that I'd sent (and unexpectedly I passed the iv) ...but my parents asked me to go for Tabung Haji . So dengan beratnya , I had to reject the offer .
At that time , I was really upset and regret with the decision made but you know , there may be a blessing/keberkatan when you listening to your parents' advice .
And yeah , Alhamdulillah , I really enjoyed doing my internship at Tabung Haji :-) and sometimes I think what would happen if I accept the offer from Bank Negara , would I enjoy the internship there as much as I did at Tabung Haji ? Hehe only Allah knows
So guys , if you are interested to do internship with Bank Negara , go email them . The HR people told me elaun RM 750 will be given every month . And kalau you perform during the internship who knows boleh absorb as a permanent staff kan . All the best !
And doakan I dapat kerja yang baik lepas grad nanti .InshaaAllah .
Till then . Assalamualaikum .
