April 15, 2011 – My last day as an intern at Emerson-Process Management.
Needless to say, I still wanted to extend my internship period for as long as it takes. But unfortunately duty calls, and that is for me to complete the 200 hours I’ve extended and apply for graduation as soon as I can. I still needed to land a slot out of the 35 slots for the Bachelor of Technology in Information Technology (BTIT) course that I’m dying to take. With the scarcity of slots and the number of students who want to take the said course, I must be doing my job to secure a post from the coveted slots. With that I opted (with no choice) to finish my internship at Emerson and complete all the requirements as fast as I can. Oh well, every good thing must come to an end, even the best ones.
Looking back on my first week, I felt a pang of nostalgia. The span of 6 months was really an awesome experience. I still remember my first day at Emerson, ma’am Mira introduced me to some of the employees and as I was introduced to ma’am Anne she told me that I should also be like ma’am Mira (that I should be as dedicated and hardworking as her). And as far as I’m concern I did what she asked me to do and in my own way I was able to contribute to the productivity of the company. I gained many memories [and weight also]. I learned many things and met persons whom I befriended with. All in all the experience taught me how to be independently dependent. You can be independent, but you still need help from others who know best and are experienced. And because of that I’ll be forever grateful with the opportunity given to me – the chance of working with the kindest and professional people in town.
And now as I’m about to leave the company that made me fat (my heart is) and smart (I already am, but smarter now). I owe these guys who’ve been a part of my meaningful stay at Emerson-Process Management.
Ma’am Anne – Thank you for being the best build evaluation teacher I ever had. I see you not as a strict woman but a strong one now. Salamat and God bless you there at Austin!
