SEGi Student Fatimah Gets Swift Promotion To Manager After Internship

For most graduates, their first job marks the slow, gruelling climb up the corporate ladder which is punctuated by failures and setbacks.

But not for Nur Fatimah Binti Navaskhan from SEGi University, who got promoted to shift manager quickly after her internship at KFC. More than that, people can be certain that she knows how to make an amazing fried chicken.

“My tip would always be to hear what the manager says and have good knowledge and communication with the manager and team members,” Fatimah said when questioned about her quick rise in rank.

Her journey began at SEGi by enrolling in the Certificate In Hotel Operations programme before continuing with the Diploma In Restaurant Management.

It was then that she completed a one-year attachment with KFC TTDI Jaya Shah Alam, putting her on the path that will very much define her today.

It was not a lengthy tenure but Fatimah already accumulated many sweet memories there, among them being her birthday celebration with her colleagues at KFC.

Back at university, Fatimah also had many fond memories with her favourite lecturersMiss Anisha, Miss Natalie and Mr Hafiz.

“I like their teaching style. It’s easier to remember what we learnt,” she said, adding that the lecturers have refresher questions a day after the lesson.

Several chapters later, the lecturers would conduct a quiz session which she found very helpful towards the learning process.

“With Hafiz, I recall myself and another three students having failed our accounting exam. He phoned us up and provided us with coursework to do to pass the subject,” said Fatimah.

She recounted her classroom environment which was filled with jokes and comedy that lightened up the place. All these and more added to the learning environment that she cherishes.

When asked, Fatimah said her favourite subjects were Restaurant Management, and Food and Beverages Skill.

“These two subjects taught me a lot of things about how to serve, handle and communicate with customers,” she said.

According to Fatimah, university life mostly involved attending classes, studying, participating in extracurricular activities and socialising with peers.

“Overall, university life at SEGi could be both challenging and rewarding, offering opportunities for personal and academic growth,” she said.

Fatimah’s achievements are testament to SEGi’s commitment to produce graduates that are not only relevant to their respective industries, but those who can surpass it, and to redefine it in the time to come.
