Internship Presentation at Hyper Island


Published on

The very last presentation I gave at Hyper Island.

It is about my internship experience. It aims to give some tips to the current students before their internship while telling some stories about my own.

ps. I had to cut out some sensitive stuff. Sorry if it feels weird at points.

  • Amazing presentation!!
    one doubt... when in the final tips you talk about 'documentate your work', what do you exactly mean with that... i don't understand if you call documentate work to make a portfolio, to make reports!?
    thank you!! really good presentation :)
