MS Internship.. (1)

Edited on 17th July::
Well, I was mistaken about the internship, It turned to be a technical one.. not pure technical, but that is wt makes it interesting.. MS working environment is more than gr8 & I'm enjoying wt I do esp the new people I got to know there..
That's all..

Well, during exams I was told by a friend of mine that MS egypt is finally making its first internship to accept trainees, I applied & was expecting an assessment test by 14/6.. later on it was postponed to 24/6 & I was told that the test is from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm (total of 8 hrs!!!)..

Anyway, on 24/6 I went to MS in smart village & when I entered there were another 14 from AUC & AAST.. & then we were told to enter a room for the test... & here was the shock, They told us that the test is not related to programming, it will be a self-evaluation test!! ... at first we didn't get why.. then they told us that the internship is a non-technical one.. some of us discussed that with the person responsible for this & finally she told him sth like "in case u are accepted, you can go through another coding test to see if u can join the development team or not but still I'm not sure about this"... anyway, we started the assessment test, The assessment test was a practical one & according to ur actions in each activity, u r evaluated... They wanted to see how good u r in presentation skills, self-confidence, team work.. etc..
Well, It was really so FUN (I admit) .. but this is not why I went to MS Egypt !!

Anyway, Today I received a mail that I was selected from those who are granted the internship.. & I am still really so confused.. To go or not to go !??
I'm sure it will be a gr8 personal experience, but it has nth to do with our profession..

I dunno really.. Should I go or not !?

Evaluate yourself...

As vacation is coming nearer & Searching for a company to train/work in is getting closer.. which means that also interviews & assessment tests are approaching, sooo I think one must start getting ready for that..
I liked Microsoft Assessment Tests & thought about sharing this here.. Its a good way to evaluate yourself..

Hope everyone finds a suitable & good training/job... Allah be with us..
