“Listen carefully! Whatever you feel, whatever you think; whatever you do: FINISH it WELL!”
I do not know who is the creator of that statement, but I clearly remember the moment I hear it from a preacher. Thank you for sharing, Pastor! It helps me to go through this journey 🙂
This writing will be telling you about my six months internship experience, and how God worked on it.
I make it to be my reading someday and to remind me of wonderful past days.
This also to show my warmest gratitude to the Lord who sent me to InterMatrix Communications and to InterMatrix Communications (IMX) who willingly accept me as an intern. 😀
Internship is a requirement from my campus before entering the semester of thesis. This is why I struggled to do an internship in the best place, coz I won’t waste my time.
Ok, anddd.. here the story goes 😛
Somedays on August – October 2011 –> Days of Hunting and Interviews!
“God, please please please, I want this company! Really want this company!”
I was praying for one big company to do my internship. The company where some of President University students also pray for. I was crazy about it till one day a senior told me this “You know what I got from them? Nothing, but a certificate!”
God gives what we need, not what we want. He knew I want that company but He is more understand that I do not need a plain certificate 😛 Then.. He lead me to something bigger…
The idea of applying to IMX was not from my own desire. A good friend, Inri, who forced me to apply to IMX. She has no reason why she did this, but she did it anyway. There are many PR Agencies, but why IMX? Ahh well, in short, I followed her anyway 😛
Applying done. Interview done. I’m accepted, but was still questioning, am I in the right path, God?
January 3, 2012 – July 3, 2012 –> INTERNSHIP!
There were moments of confusion, exhaustion, excitement, and dissapoinment.
I was asking for experience, but when seniors gave me a lot things to do, I grumbled…silently 🙂 hehe. There, God gently remind me through 1 Cor 13:11 : “When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.” This verse gives an understanding for me that the tasks given is the suitable “food” for me coz I’m no longer a child. Thus, I have to put the ways of childhood (grumbling) behind me.
There was a moment when I was afraid to learn more.
The deeper the lesson, the more effort needed. And if someone is afraid to learn more, he is actually not afraid, he is just faineant. And, it was me. I was faineant. I was “afraid” when IMX gave an opportunity for me to do radio interview with Wimar Witoelar, a former presidential spokesman, who is also the owner of IMX. Couldn’t thank God enough, if He is not with me, I wouldn’t say “yes” to that precious challenge.
One night, God lead me to this verse: “The sluggard’s craving will be the death of him, because his hands refuse to work.” – Proverb 21 : 25. I desire to be a news anchor, and this challenge is a rare opportunity! I am just nobody. I am just an ordinary student. Who am I to interview a great person about an important topic? If I refuse to learn, I kill my desire.
There were moments when I felt alone and sad.
“You are s***!”, someone said. He might be kidding saying it to me. But it hurts me. Nobody likes to be treated rudely. I don’t like to hear people saying rude words. In the end, I thank God for making me used to it. There are many kinds of people characteristic, and I will not find good characteristic only. I also have to get used to bad characteristic.
July 3, 2012 –> Farewell with IMX!
