Melvin further talked about the positive things he got while joining SRIN. According to him, there are at least three things, namely experience, soft skills, and technical knowledge.
“In terms of technical knowledge, I can apply the knowledge I have learned in real life in college. I also got new knowledge that I didn’t get before in college. I can also see and recognize the latest trends in the industry that are related to the science or field that I am engaged in,” he said.
Even so, Melvin did not deny that during his internship at SRIN he also encountered some difficulties. One of them is on technical matters such as programming languages which he thinks are foreign because they are not taught in college.
Luckily, the mentors at SRIN were always quick to help him so that the difficulties could be passed smoothly.
Melvin himself also learns a lot from his colleagues who are working on similar projects. “I was assisted by mentors or seniors who were already in the project,” he said.
