The First Digital Internship Experience - Yves Nkolo
The internship experience
My experience as an intern at First Digital was amazing and I learnt so many things in a short space of time. I developed into a committed, gifted, and tenacious data analyst with an acute attention to detail and a passion to solve problems. I've been running Power BI training sessions for organizations including Bidvest, PIC, the Northwest University, and most recently, SAA (South African Airways) throughout my time at First Digital. Indeed, the voyage has been enjoyable. These training courses were designed to teach other staff members how to create an extensive dashboard from scratch utilizing any data source.
The FD Culture
The people at First Digital are easy to talk to, always there to assist with almost anything whether it is on a task or an entire project. I personally enjoy the teamwork and the communication. In a nutshell the company has a growth mindset, teamwork, employee engagement and opportunities for advancement, communication and transparency, diversity, and results.
What I have learned
Throughout my work journey at First Digital, I learnt many skills such as SQL, Power BI, ETL, Data Analytics and many more. This gave me a solid foundation, and I was able to handle almost every task given to me. I started obtaining Microsoft certifications because I am devoted to this career path. I currently hold the certifications DA-100 Analysing data with Microsoft Power BI, DP-203 Data Engineering on Microsoft Azure, and DP-300 Administering Microsoft Azure SQL Solutions.
