They also picked up nuggets of wisdom as they enriched their potentials and sharpened their intellect.
From the supervisors’ point of view, they were impressed by the students’ attitude, intellectual competence, multi-tasking skills, determination to finish work as planned, and problem solving strategies as the need arises. Because of these positive responses, supervisors invited more students from STIC to apply for internship in the upcoming semesters. Others were groomed to be hired after graduation, while one of them was already hired, because of an instant job vacancy, and the job fits her potentials, on the condition however, that she finishes her school requirements after the internship.
