A successful internship application may require you to
- write a good resume and be prepared to elaborate on information it contains relating to the internship.
- prepare well for the interview.
- highlight relevant personal qualities.
- try to have a good work ethic
- read and understand the matters raised at dilc.info/intern
- demonstrate depth of technical knowledge (e.g., programming in a particular language, multimedia artistry using your favorite graphic or video app). Having an online portfolio is an advantage.
- for programming interns, show clarity and effectiveness in your programming logic using your favorite programming language.
Stint at DILC
You can make the most out of DILC internship if you
- try to develop your social skills, especially with regard to the use of DILC common spaces and in observing basic courtesies.
- If you live far from the UP campus, consider looking for a place nearby.
- What powers you? Definitely not the money. How about the applause?
- try to acquire collaboration skills via platforms like Git. DILC uses its own Git server.
- learn Linux. Favorite flavors of Linux in the Program include Mint and Ubuntu.
- realize that saying "nagwo-work naman sa localhost, ah!" (it works in the localhost!) is not good enough, unless your localhost is a machine that's technically the same as the production server.
- learn to work using an Integrated Development Environment (IDE)
- you'll get used to breaking down a project into time-specific milestones and deliverables. DILC uses its own online project management platform.
