In regard to the skills and abilities that I have learnt in this internship can be listed as:

1.) Gain valuable work experience

The hands-on work experience that I have being an assistant in Furniture and Curtains is significant and can't be acquired in a homeroom setting, making this one as one of the significant additions during temporary positions of each understudy. Since I have the chance to apply obtained information in the homeroom to genuine work encounters, and see how those conversations contrast, in actuality. As an Assistant Sales office I had the open door also to observe first-hand the everyday employment obligations they I can hope to experience sooner rather than later. Notwithstanding learning the spent significant time in advertising and deals, adaptable abilities, for example, correspondence, cooperation, and PC capability have likewise been acquired by me, completely setting me up to enter the workforce after my examinations.

2.) Giving myself an edge and competition in the job market

One of the most significant intern position benefits is that school graduates who as of now have some work involvement with the type of a temporary position stand apart to potential businesses which have helped me as an assistant here.

What are the key strengths and weaknesses that I found out and resolved during this internship as an Assistant Sales Office?

As an intern, I got to discover certain skills that I was not able to do so in my four walled classroom. Let it be known that a classroom setting and work setting is two different aspects, in the work setting an individual have to discover things all by oneself with a little help and assistance from the boss/manager heading him or her, and in internship a person will be able to do that.

One of the strengths I have developed during the course of this internship is the solid knowledge and skills with regards to my chosen field (that is, Sales and Marketing); I have also developed the skills in knowing more about technology and equipments. This is very critical when my future job requires strong technical background. This strength can be reflected by my good performance in the task and activities assigned to me by my superiors.

Independency can be considered as the other one of my biggest strengths. Independent working ability involves some important skills and capacities such as problem resolving skills and researching skills and abilities. If I have encountered difficulties, to overcome them, I can do researches through the Internet to find possible and effective solutions and answers to the problem, and apply what I have learned in my research to come up with a solution.

One of my biggest weaknesses to be considered is the limitation and disadvantage of my oral communication skills and fluency in conversing, maybe it’s because I was belonging to the timid and shy type of student who rarely talks and communicates in class with my other fellow classmates, and I have went to a work whose oral communication skills is very much challenged.

Second, thing was as I was the type of person who doesn't have the initiative to do a certain work, and I will just wait for someone to tell me work on this and that, even if I know it in my mind that it really is one of my duties which needs to be done by me. However, I have come to overcome this as my internship was going on. Maybe because I was just the type of person who is very shy an introvert in nature, that is why I do not take up initiatives and wait for my boss or supervisor to tell what to do next during the course of my internship as an Assistant Sales Office in Furniture and Curtains.
