insights on internships
9th of January (Saturday), 09:00 - 11:00 (UKT) // 17:00 - 19:00 (MYT)
On the 9th of January 2021, YME held its very first event of the year, titled “Insights On Internship (I.O.I)” via Airmeet and Youtube Live. Attended by over 160 participants, the event featured four speakers, each of them possessing distinct educational backgrounds from reputable universities and rich internship experiences from a range of industries. These included well-distinguished corporations such as Texas Instruments Malaysia, Mastercard, Dyson Malaysia and Facebook.
All four speakers initially shared their individual internship stories with great enthusiasm, and provided invaluable insights, information and ideas to our participants. The speakers then resolved any myths regarding internships in a FAQ session, and provided constructive facts to clear up any doubts. This was followed up by a brief Q&A session, which gave our participants an opportunity to fully engage with the speakers on any further inquiries.
