ELLEN MAKINISHI’S INTERNSHIP AT FD CORPORATION (25/09/2020 – 13/03/2020)
My 6 months internship at For Delight Corporation (FDC) has been a good learning experience of which I had good insights on Photovoltaic (PV) Business. My roles varied from conducting marketing research in Africa to project scheduling, technical sizing and designing, preparing financial simulations and business proposals. Additionally, it involved preparing minute reports, creating company blogs and flyers, and translating company websites.
In my time at FDC, I was able to develop a deeper understanding and appreciation for the company’s vision of “delivering electricity in places where it is needed.” Since the start of my internship in September to date (12/03/2020), FDC has made a great deal of effort to penetrate the African Market in countries such as Zimbabwe and Zambia. I am pleased to have been part of this process through my involvement under the Business Strategy Department. Overall, the company culture and business manner at FDC has helped me to improve my work ethic and understand diversity for better results. So thank you for the opportunity, I am forever grateful.
