Data Science Internship Review from Shi

Data science intern Shi from the University of Melbourne.

“This data science internship is incredibly enriching! It was a fulfilling part of my journey as a student. It will always be a memory of how I started my career in my industry. I am really thankful for this opportunity. I am grateful to be part of this amazing company, my colleagues and supervisor are the best! I can always count on them, I make sure to escalate things that I’m unsure of, and because of this we developed a stable working relationship. Additionally, I even have my own working place, my own table, and the company provided me with a huge screen pc, which is pretty good for a data science intern.

During the internship, I was mainly responsible for data processing. I used different tools to ensure the successful uploading of our products on the website. I also prepared presentations for the clients, compared and analyzed data, and made reports. I was also responsible for operational tasks. With this,I learned how to effectively analyze the data, became proficient using APP and other data tools, and presented the results in a clear and concise way. Overall, this includes my professional growth as a data science profession, it helped me to be more familiarized with various tools and applications related to data processing. The internship not only honed my professional growth, but also enabled me to be more articulate with my English communication skills.

My suggestion would be to have a positive learning attitude. When you encounter new tasks assigned to you, do your due diligence and take time to learn and research about it, with the vast resources out there, you can definitely learn something new. When you are unsure, always reach out and escalate things to your immediate head. Communicate to your colleagues and supervisor, and take initiative in everything you do.”
