It was my birthday when Ma’am Kira, HR Associate of Chikka Philippines Inc. told me that I am chosen as one of the interns of the said company. I was happy, anxious and nervous all at the same time. Later on, she told us that our first day would be on April12 at 9:30 AM in which an orientation about Chikka will be held.

During that day, while eating brunch at a restaurant inside the building, Ma’am Kira and Ma’am Mia told us stories on how Chikka started, the company’s projects and achievements, the laid back environment and many more. They also oriented us on the policies such as the dress code (no need for semi-formal attire, just smart casual), the time required for us, the teams we will be working with and some paper signing.

Aside from the stories, I get to know my 9 co-interns – 3 from UP (which makes the four of us) , 3 from Ateneo, 2 from St.Scholastica and 1 from UST. I learned that I will be in the mobile team together with my schoolmates – Diel (Angela Barnes), Berns (Bernardo Cinco) and Ielle (Aurielle Lee from UP Manila). Fortunately, my teammates are easy to get along with so I think I will enjoy making our projects with them.:) Our team leaders on the other hand are accommodating and inspiring.

After the Chikkahan, we toured the Chikka offices and we were introduced to some of the Chikka employees, most of which will be our team leaders. Finally, we were deployed into our rooms. Each of us has our own laptops where we can work on our projects and tasks. As soon as we got into the room, one of our team leaders asked us to read and study the starter kit and familiarize ourselves on how they develop mobile applications. She gave us some documents and sample applications for us to study for the rest of the week.

Basically, that was what happened during our first week, not mentioning the stressful trip from UP to Ortigas and vice versa.

Hoping for a happy yet productive week with my teammates. Yay!
