STORM Learning (currently SkillBean) aims to develop the potential of young college students through a holistic internship. Last June to July, we held the STORM Scouts program –the ultimate internship experience for aspiring startup entrepreneurs. Read on to know more about what our interns think of the #STORMLife!

“For me, the best part about being a STORM Learning Scout is having to work in an environment that encourages and promotes learning and development. I like how we, interns, were treated as actual employees. I was tasked to create outputs that will actually be integrated to the platform, so this had made me accountable in my work. I had a mentor who was approachable and patient, so it was easy for me to ask questions and learn new things. What I liked the most about working with my mentor was that he gave instructions and guidance in a way that encourages self-learning. Whenever I asked questions on how to solve a particular problem, he only gave me possible approaches, but it was up to me on how to carry out the solution. We were also encouraged to join events and conferences where I was given an opportunity to develop my speaking and social skills. I have two main takeaways from my experience working at STORM Learning: First, it is important to build a good work culture because this impacts the way people think, act and reflect in an organization or company. Second, if we want to bring people into action with our ideas, we need to believe in our ideas first. For instance, if we really believe in our product, the things that we will say about it will just come out naturally and with that, we will be able to better persuade people to do something with it.”
