Introducing James, one of our two Tech interns!
James joined the team in December with Matthew.
Always adorned in cute socks, if he isn’t debating with Matthew about who likes Tony Stark more, he is just facing his computer screen, staring at codes and listening to K-pop.
Read on to find out how he found us, and what he’s doing at Fyreflyz as a Tech Intern.
Tell us more about yourself and how did you come to learn about Fyreflyz?
I’m a third year student at Singapore Polytechnic, pursuing a Diploma in Infocomm Security Management. One thing I like about being in the technology field is that I get to learn new things every day and I’m able to apply it to almost every aspect of my life.
I learnt about Fyreflyz through one of my friends and started working ad-hoc part time as an Event Assistant. Through my friend and Event Manager, I got to know more about Fyreflyz and eventually was given the opportunity to work as a Tech Intern.
If given a chance to work in another position within Fyreflyz for a day, which role would you choose?
I would love to try a management role! I’d like to learn and experience how one manages a team of different individuals and set them on the same path to bring the company to greater heights.
What is the most challenging task that you have had to do in your internship?
I feel that the most challenging task I had to face during my internship was that I’m learning things that are not taught in school, nor things that I would touch without actually having hands-on experience working on them, such as managing a Mail Server.
Though tasks like these are rather challenging, I feel that I’m able to learn a lot through exploration of different alternatives.
You are also studying part-time. What would you say is the toughest part about juggling work and studies?
The toughest part about juggling work and studies is the time spent between work, studies and family. During this period of time, I learnt how important time is and how limited time one has.
If you could be in any movie, what would it be and what character would you play and why?
Definitely Tony stark!! 😭!! He inspires me on how technology can change and help the world, while at the same time enjoying his life.
Share with us what’s your favourite food to have during your lunch break while working at Fyreflyz!
Chicken rice, hahaha!
