Adriel Tjokrosaputro, a fifth semester Music Business student interning with Warner Music in Indonesia, shares his thoughts about the importance of corporate culture when considering an internship.
“You three! Go to the pantry right now!” My supervisor shouted at me and the other two interns military-style. Yet, we silently ran and smiled. Three minutes later, we walked out carefully. My fellow intern, Aji, had a fancy chocolate cake on his hand with 20 lighted rainbow candles. Ten steps later, Warner Music Indonesia exploded into the song “Happy Birthday Dear Anggi.” Following Indonesian tradition, the birthday girl was given the opportunity to give the first piece to her most beloved co-worker.Turned out the person was my supervisor, Ms. Linda. She laughed and cried.
