Every ending is the beginning of another something (what? hahaha). I’ve already finished my 500 hours of internship in ABS-CBN. I would say this was a great experience and possibly one of the most memorable one. As what I’ve mentioned before, I never thought I would be able to become an intern to a very well-known company moreover a TV network. Seeing celebrities and all was a great experience but other than that, I would say that the things that I’ve learned and the knowledge that I’ve gained throughout the program was more valuable. It’s an incredible experience. I mean, photocopying, printing, compiling documents where the “common” internship experience and my sister told me that her college friends, who also did their internship in the network, told her that the only benefit that they get is that they saw celebrities, but their workload was mostly photocopying things and they didn’t get to be that expose in their course-related work. But that’s not the case for me, since we were ask to present proposals, we were involved in a brainstorming activity, we do product shots and we also handled online inquiries and events which is related to my course (Marketing).
I was really excited in finishing this internship since that would mean that I’m literally a “Grad waiting” student but separation anxiety sure strike hard. I can’t seem to leave the office and I find it hard to say goodbye. I remember looking back while walking away, I remember the happy faces through the glass door, I remember the laugh as they told me the iconic words that they always use to tease me and I remember holding back the tears that really want to leave these eyes. The hugs, the words of encouragement, the words of appreciation for what we’ve done for the past months might’ve been just words for them but I really took it to heart and it gives me motivation to strive harder. Congratulating us for our upcoming graduation, wishing us luck for our future endeavors it makes me feel important even if we’re just an intern.
