An intern with StarHub: Day 1


I just realised this today. It is not Starhub, it is not starhub, it is not STARHUB. It is spelt, StarHub, with the ‘S’ and the ‘H’ capitalised. Weird? But cool!.

First day. After 40 mins on 222 and 24, I reached 67 Ubi Avenue 1. There was no direct pathway from the bus stop near MacPherson Circle Line station. Thanks to Andre, I was somewhat prepared as to the whereabouts of the shortcuts. I decided to take the one along the canal. This ‘shortcut’ (more like a long detour) took like 10 minutes man. The other ‘shortcut’ is through the temple near the Caltex station.

Arrived at 8.25am. Half-an-hour early. Went around exploring the reception/lobby. The huge screen is like wow. My eyes couldn’t decide which screen to stare at. wahaha.

This doesn’t even look like an office man. The walls are so colourful with pictures, televisions all over. The designers managed to find ways to spam the mission statements and values along almost every wall without being cheesy.

And yes, every single poster, drawing, illustration, image, etc etc are there to inspire and motivate employees. I’m really quite pleasantly surprised that the top management is so willing to spend so much on their internal stakeholders. Very impressive, I must say. Who wouldn’t want an office space to be colourful, bright and cheery.

I spent the majority of my 1st day at work reading up about StarHub via their intranet, their corporate website, and their collaterals (annual reports, official publications, telescope, etc). 2009’s annual report looks quite awesome till the financial statements part. 🙂

I’m officially a StarHubber (yea, we are not just employees) for the next 23 weeks and 6 days. Sadly, I am not eligible for many of the awesome staff benefits (loads of huge huge discounts on StarHub services, boooooo! haha). Shall have more photos really really soon.
