Constance Ong

Student of Xiamen University Malaysia

Working at Mystique as a marketing intern was an incredibly rewarding experience. I was given the opportunity to explore my creativity while learning the ins and outs of marketing and the luxury industry. The team was very supportive, and I had access to a wide range of resources that really helped me to improve my skillset. I would highly recommend this opportunity to anyone looking to gain practical experience.

The three and a half months that I spent with Mystique Universal as an Intern of Marketing were truly some of the most unforgettable memories for me. It was actually the first time that I had worked in a company, and it turned out to be a great kick start in my journey from university to the working society.

It was not only marketing skills and important experiences that I gained here, but also valuable lessons about interpersonal communication, languages, culture and how to think and work with passion.

Ms Mink Ong, the Managing Director and Mr Oliver Liew, Asst Brand Manager, were two excellent, patient, and generous teachers and mentors in both my work and my personal life. I believe no matter where my career takes me in the future, I will always remember the things I learned at Mystique Universal. I'll keep this experience in my heart forever, and wish the company all the very best.

My internship here at Mystique Universal has certainly helped me form important building blocks for my future aspirations as a business leader. With the wise tutelage of my colleagues, I learnt from my mistakes and discovered better problem solving solutions.As a university student, I was able to apply academic knowledge in a setting that yielded learning opportunities that produced positive results. I also had the pleasure of being part of a CSR effort of curating web content and re-designing the website for Sunbeams Home. Ms Mink Ong and Mr Oliver Liew were not only my personal mentors, but also resilient individuals that walked me through various operations in the luxury retail industry, encouraging me to perform my best and produce substantial results no matter the challenge. They discovered my hidden strengths and helped me work on my shortcomings. The rest of the team also made my internship experience a memorable one.

During my internship, I noticed many positive changes in my behaviour and skills. My organisational skills tremendously improved compared to when I first joined, thanks to the endless trainings I received.Every week I faced new challenges. Some of them were really tough and tested my thinking and analytical skills, and required a good amount of common sense. However, I took each challenge that came my way positively and always did my best to solve them on my own.I also used the challenges as an opportunity to learn and discover more about myself. The past few months have been constantly teaching and showing me knowledge, qualities and characteristics about myself that I previously never had or never knew was possible to do.

It's been a fantastic couple of months at Mystique Universal. Firstly, I want to thank the Managing Director, Ms Mink Ong, and the Assistant Brand Manager, Mr Oliver Liew for interviewing and ultimately accepting me at Mystique Universal. I was very happy to have the opportunity to work on a few projects like face mask protectors, and various CSR projects. For someone very new to the industry, it was definitely a great achievement. Every task given was a chance to learn and seek advice on marketing and professional knowledge. Overall, I really appreciate my time spent at Mystique Universal, and I am glad that I chose Mystique Universal, it helped me discover what I am really interested in for my future career. Honestly, this was the first time that I enjoyed working, maybe because the tasks that I received were interesting. I will miss this place very much and hope that I can work with you guys again, either through collaborating or even as a colleague in the future.

Time has flown by since I started my three months of internship with Mystique Universal. In the company, I was assigned various projects and ongoing tasks. We always kept busy by fully utilising the time to improve and grow together with the company. I felt blessed to be given the chance to expose myself to real-world projects and clients such as their CSR initiative with Yayasan Sunbeams Home, designing promotional material and e-cards, and doing performing social media analysis between the company and various other companies. I felt that I was definitely valued and recognised for my contributions.Besides that, I am so glad to have met the lovely team. Despite being the Managing Director, Ms Mink Ong is very approachable and patient, and put much effort in mentoring me. I have learned so much from her. Also, I could not be more grateful that Mr Oliver Liew was always very generous in sharing his insightful knowledge and experience with the interns. The whole team is very open and friendly, as long as you are willing to learn, they are willing to teach.Sincerely, I am thankful to the team for taking such good care of me during my internship.

I started my internship with MUSB on January 15th, 2018. Before that, I just completed my SPM examinations and was working part time at Baskin Robbins, AEON Alpha Angle. I was scheduled to intern until March 15th in Roberto Coin, when I would get my SPM results. I only did my internship for 2 whole months but the wisdom and skills I’ve learned here I can carry for a lifetime.

I have learned so much from my mentor, Mink Ong during my time here. I cannot forget the first advice she shared to me on my first day as an intern, which is to never suffer in silence. She along with the rest of the lovely staff members guided and supervised me as I did my duty as an intern. Another lesson that resonated with me till today is to never be sloppy and to be an overachiever in every situation, in school or workplace. I have learned many hard and soft skills during my internship, and more invaluable lessons I cannot get anywhere else.

Other than the boutique, I also interned in ULC (United Learning Centre) for a few weeks. It was an eye opening experience for me as I learned about the background of the children in that centre. It taught me to be grateful of what I had and to be patient when teaching them.

In conclusion, I highly recommend anybody that is looking for an internship to try out at MUSB. It’s truly an amazing experience and I’ll definitely cherish each moment I have there.

To say that my internship with Mystique Universal has been an amazing experience is an understatement. My journey as an intern with the company started when I was volunteering with United Learning Centre (ULC), teaching Myanmar refugee children a daily curriculum of Math, Science, English and Social Studies.

With ULC being Mystique Universal's Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) project, I had the opportunity to balance a daily routine between the top and the bottom of the social hierarchy in Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur. This rather peculiar yet exhilarating experience allowed me to gather my thoughts each day, contemplating the vast social inequity that exists within the sociological system of Kuala Lumpur, and how I, as an individual, could help in the future.

Moreover, what made the internship even more enriched was the guidance and mentorship provided by the team at the company. My questions and occasional confusions were always welcomed and corrected in a way that made me loved doing what I do every day. The Managing Director, Ms. Mink Ong's hands-on approach in managing every minute detail of the luxury retail brand has been truly inspiring. She never ceases to take time to personally teach young interns the basic lessons in the luxury industry such as customer relations, the importance of attention to detail, life values, etc.

I believe that the knowledge and experiences gained through this 5-month internship have been truly indispensable. This experience has not only allowed me to mature as an individual but see the world with a different perspective. As Steve Jobs once said, " Learn continuously, there is always 'one more thing' to learn." There will be many lessons, new relationships, new seasons and new experiences to come, but my time at Mystique Universal, the lessons gained and the friendships forged, will definitely be one that I'll always cherish.

"The experience I had with ULC is most enriching. During my internship with Gubelin, my main duty is to focus on their CSR – a learning centre for young Myanmar refugee children. It was purely on a volunteer basis and I have taught the children on one side and provide some administrative work to improve their administration and operations. In the short time I have spent with them, I have learnt much and much thanks to the people I met here, it was an awesome experience of multicultural exchange both at United Learning Centre as well as at the most luxurious Gubelin boutique in Kuala Lumpur. It was quite funny to be working at the top as well as the bottom of the pyramid. Personally, I have gained so much. I have improved tremendously both my soft and hard skills. The world of high end luxury jewelry held dear to me and this valuable opportunity given to me, I have taken great advantage of the chance to learn about gemstones and jewelry. I wish to extend my personal gratitude and thanks to the MD , Miss Mink Ong for convincing me to do this internship and for taking personal time off to ensure I have achieve all that I wanted to achieve."

"My internship with Mystique Universal has been a truly amazing experience, although I only had a short period of time working here at Gubelin. I had neither experience nor knowledge about the jewellery industry but they accepted me warmly and taught me well. It was my first time experiencing the "behind the scenes" of working in a boutique, for example seeing how they display their jewellery every morning and do stock count. They exposed me to a lot of stuff while I was there like sales techniques, operations related work and how to be disciplined. They also gave me the opportunity to follow one of their staff to do a photo shoot featuring their jewellery. With this, they have exposed me to the marketing aspect of their fine jewellery. Lastly but most certainly not least, they taught me about gemstones and the big three; sapphire, ruby and emerald. I had a great time working here in Mystique Universal and it helped me find my passion to begin my career in the gem industry."

"My internship with Mystique Universal Sdn. Bhd was simply a wonderful learning experience. In the beginning, I didn’t know what to expect from interning at a retail sector, but I ended up enjoying every moment of my internship. The most important rule that I’ve learned throughout my internship was that to always be on your toes. There are some situations or tasks that you will face unexpectedly, but I’ve understood that these things are just a part of working experience. Sometimes the tasks may appear daunting but at the end, you will realize that you have the ability to accomplish it. Mystique Universal has also exposed me to the world of elitist and famous jewelry brands that I would have never thought to partake in. In addition, I was also able to gain knowledge about the inner workings of the jewelry industry and what I’ve learnt was just the tip of the iceberg. The experience was truly enriching and I wished I had the time to learn more. One of the other biggest advantages of working at Mystique Universal is the team. Their teamwork never fails to amaze me and I’m truly grateful for their willingness to guide me while I was there. All in all, my internship was amazing and I wished more people would discover this unique ‘gem’ in the near future."

"Right from the beginning, I knew this internship would be hard, time-and energy-consuming. Knowing that I will be interning in the retail sector, there is no escape from long working hours! Despite how much I rant about this, I love working here in Mystique Universal (MU). Throughout my experience in MU, I have learned a lot of stuff of what and what not to do in a certain situation, while enhancing both my skills and knowledge by learning them hands-on. Most importantly, I was able to apply what I have learned. many times I have to be on my toes to keep up with my tasks. This feeling of stuffiness lingered until I finally figured out that I was in for 3 months of roller coaster ride. My advice? Never say never :)"

"There were activities performed during my internship such as marketing, sales shop event organizer, customer service. Boucheron organized some events during my internship, and I learnt important work experience from the processes. The knowledge that I gained from this internship was interesting because of the way that I thought about my major and the way that everything in this industry runs in reality was totally different from the one that had in my mind. I experienced the social interaction with both people working in this sector and customers including the marketing aspect of it, and the way they handled events."

Laura Irene Liew

"Working as an intern at Mystique Universal has been a superb learning experience. Throughout my internship there, I got to experience many kinds of responsibilities and tasks given to me. At first, I was shocked at the amount of trust and confidence they have in me. Then as I carried on, the people at Mystique Universal would guide me through each task, teaching me new things. An internship at Mystique Universal is all about new experiences because the company is true to its belief in fresh and talented young individuals and therefore, takes the time to teach and equip each intern with tools for when they come out to a real professional working life."

"For those that would like to experience teamwork, marketing/sales tactics, time management, and program execution, the internship provided by Mystique Universal, will be the best on the job training ever. I had a great time learning about the workplace such as being punctual, behavior towards clients and co-workers, and how to schedule events formally. Throughout my entire internship, I had a great time learning different information because of my co-workers and boss. Each employee at Mystique Universal company helped each other in coordinating events and finishing assignments. Their experience and easy atmosphere allowed the interns to become comfortable and to learn quickly. Teamwork was greatly appreciated and experienced during my internship. With each given assignment, the other interns and I utilized each other's skill in order to achieve what was asked. One person would perform a section or part of the objective and provide information for the others. When work became difficult and somebody was in need of assistance, the co-workers would be there to aid him or her. In the marketing area of the program, all of the interns attended meetings with extremely important officials in charge of major events. Interns are expected to take part in creating an environment of collaboration and cooperation, where at times helped each intern to be taken out of their comfort zone and participate in the planning and the conversation. With upcoming events nearing, time management became a crucial trait in which all interns had to learn how to coordinate different events while planning for future ones. The officials and interns all interact with each other in order to successfully conduct their planned events. Sales representatives had another lesson to be learned. Ms. Mink Ong educated all the interns and working staff to learn to take pride in what they sell, essentially using marketing and sales tactics. Marketing and sales tactics presented ideas on how to engage potential customers and encourage them to buy. Everyone learned background information about the brand of jewelry they were selling and everyone made an effort to incorporate what they learned in their sales pitch. Using that information on the brand names, we were able to make customers relate more with the product in order to introduce the need to buy from a familiar store. I hope that all new and upcoming interns experience "A Journey Through Time" because that event pushes everyone within Mystique Universal and other companies to work to their fullest potential. A Journey Through Time is, from a business perspective, an opportunity to create a large volume of sales in a short period of time. Many potential customers attend this prestigious event by invitation only. Interns will experience how each business prepares for the one-week extravaganza promotion. Program Execution was focused with extreme emphasis during this week because of the amount of potential sales. After all the planning, the interns had to learn when events were occurring, who would be in charge of what, and where everyone's position and responsibility should be. Both sales representatives and marketing team will be faced with many challenges that push them physically, mentally, and (for some) emotionally to their limits. The skills that the interns experienced in their first few weeks will be reinforced and tested during this busy occasion. Personally, my experience definitely changed my views on how business is being conducted. Since the jewelry stores (Boucheron, Van Cleef & Arpels, Carrera y Carrera etc.) are high-end brands, conduct and performance have a lofty standard. I learned the meaning of being punctual, behavior towards the boss, how to plan for contingencies, dress to impress, become open-minded to what the boss teaches, and how to engage in conversation with potential clients. These learned traits are meaningful because they do not just relate to the workplace, but they relate to life in general. I have learned more about business and life in this program than I would have in any other programs."

"This was my first internship and already I have learned so many things, things that have been shown to separate this high-end industry from the rest. For example, how critical the precision of details is in every task, how we have to both predict the worse of outcomes and have a backup solution during events, how efficiency really matters, and even how important socializing is to enhance customer interactions. Books can only take you so far and this internship with Mystique Universal has been a superb real-life field experience."


Raflles International College

"I only had a short time at Mystique Universal, but it was so enriching. I enjoyed every second and learnt so much from everyone. I assisted with 'A Journey Through Time IV" and now appreciate how much detail goes into event planning, not only in the weeks before but even on the day things can go wrong, and how easy it can be to deal with these things. I loved learning about jewellery and appreciated how willing everyone is to teach about marketing, sales and business. I wish I could have stayed longer."

"The most important thing after you graduate is real-life experience in the field. Mystique Universal Sdn.

For example, serving customers and dealing with problems that will arise within business circumstances. It is truly an amazing experience"

"My internship with Mystique Universal Sdn. Bhd. was an extraordinary experience. Through this cross-cultural exchange, I have also discovered the luxury watch and jewelry industry in Malaysia. As I never had any experience in this industry, it was definitely an eye-opener for me and I have learnt so much about the beauty, knowledge and complexity of these exquisite jewelries and timepieces." Since I was stationed in Van Cleef & Arpels and Boucheron boutique most of the time... which are French brands, I am able to share and teach French culture to Mystique Universal team. It is extremely profitable to both me and the team."
