The director of the company requested for me to design a program that enables the sales team to make a proposal or a write up for their customers, by clicking the requirements that their customers asked for. Basically, he wants an automatic proposal/write up generator to make life easier for the sales team.
I know it seems to be fairly simple. But that's really a challenge for me since i'm not as gifted in programming like most of my friends in campus. (If only I was Mark Zuckernberg back then would be cool LOL) Plus I've been out of the game for so long that I forgot most of the things I learn in class. I didn't know where to start, I could only imagine how it would work in the end product. So there I was, stuck for the most part of my first 3 weeks interning for the company. To make it worse, I didn't have anyone to turn to.
The company that I'm interning for is actually an engineering company. Their product caters a niche area in the energy sector. Hence, most if not all of the staffs there have an engineering background. But none of them know a lot more about computers than I do. Even my supervisor there can't help me if I'm having trouble in completing the task. So yes, it's a torture, there's no help around, the only help I can get is from the internet. But google can only do that much.
I didn't whine, I just kept my head down, and searched for answers in the world wide web. I think I've explored the internet in the past couple of weeks more than I did the last 12months. So far, to no avail. But the good thing is, I'm under no pressure at all from the boss. He's quite a laid back fella. He just hopes that I can complete it by the end of this year so that the company can use the solution at the start of next year.
So that's basically it, my first 3 weeks interning for the company. I just hope I can find the solution soon as possible. Tomorrow would be the start of November, so December is coming by fast. I don't want to burden myself thinking about the workload during that time. It's holiday season! Hahahaha
Till next time. Chow.
