"My experience as an intern so far has been very rewarding. I have taken part in one of the biggest projects in the business."
The IT intern programme is a great career start for all students looking for experience in a corporate business. It offers undergraduates the opportunity to grow and develop personal and professional skills in the industry.
My experience as an intern so far has been very rewarding. I have taken part in one of the biggest projects in the business - an ERP implementation. The best part about being an intern at GE is that you are given the opportunity to take lead and be responsible for deliverables. My role in the project has been focused on ensuring all end users are trained and know how the system works. This role enabled me to work with different departments and teams within the business. I was able to meet deadlines and targets by putting my communication and organisational skills into practice.
As GE is a global business, there are plenty of opportunity to network and travel. Since I started in June 2013, I have been able to do just that. I have worked at different sites and gained exposure to other businesses. This is great because it has allowed me to become more independent and adaptive to change.
As an undergraduate, I plan to carry forward the skills and knowledge I have picked up at GE through to university. I hope to gain as much experience in different areas as possible and use it to my advantage, both professionally and personally. GE’s graduate programme, ITLP is something I would like to work towards.
