"My Internship has instilled a new way of thinking in me"
My internship was with Room to Read; an NGO that focuses on children's educational programs. This experience was a challenge because of its emphasis on taking responsibility and the necessity to adapt to a wide range of tasks.
However, these challenges have helped me vividly anticipate what kind of skills I need to improve upon before graduation. The future is now, and my internship has instilled a new way of thinking in me regarding how I can transform my weaknesses into strengths, and envision myself as a role model for generations to come.
"It made me more eager to contribute to the company's culture"
I had the opportunity to be an intern at a great company and I enjoyed every new piece of knowledge I acquired. To my surprise, within a few weeks, there was a company highly interested in my profile and wanted me to come in for an interview. My interview went well as one of the career counselors helped me with the preparation. Surprisingly, this company didn't have any English speakers at the time and I was going to be the first one! Though, this was not a setback for me - it only made me more eager to contribute to the company's culture as I learned. Japanese language is very important if you want to work in Japan. The TIU Career Support staff will help you move one step closer to your dream career. Work hard, always smile, and enjoy the experience!
