At long last the internship is almost over. This last week is going to be jam packed with last minute work and things to do. For one I need to get the website live and uploaded onto the current DNet Solutions website. It should not be very difficult to do that, the only thing I haven’t had time to test is the speed at which each web page loads.
For the current website, everything loads really slowly, but for this website, I took out a lot of unneeded photos and clunky boxes in favour for a more minimalist approach. I’ll post another blog in the middle of the week talking more about the website, kind of like a post mortem. For now here is a picture of the home page:
This is what the old Homepage used to look like:
I am still in the process of changing the header image because I would like to replace that with a slideshow. However I am still waiting on some pictures.
Overall this internship has been very rewarding. I got to wear a lot of different hats during my time working here and it was my first time both working abroad and in a very small company. I like how relaxed and homey it feels to work in a small company and most of the people here have known each other for many years. I used to work in a much larger company where it was a lot more professional but it also felt very fake and it was not the right fit for me. Working at DNet, I sit 3 seats away from one of the CEO’s and I can approach him whenever I want and we can strike up a conversation about many different things. Working at SNCL I needed to walk half a floor away, knock on a door and choose my words carefully when I spoke to my boss who was always busy and the air in the room always felt very tense.
At DNet I feel like I can work at my own pace and I have a lot more control and freedom to do my work. I am very glad that I had the opportunity to take part in an 8 week internship abroad and I would like to come back to Hong Kong in the future to do business.
