       時間總是與我們作對,而我們也常誤以為自己時間很充裕。去年六月我將要畢業時,想起身為學生的日子不多了,認為最後一次的實習對自己會很有幫助。我把人生當成一系列的實驗;我不怕冒險,也不怕承認失敗,因為從失敗中可以學習成長。因為我還年輕,所以失敗後還有機會可以重新再站起來。

---

       我實習的公司是見得行,是一家提供各種金屬、鐵合金、非鐵合金與耐火材料設備的貿易公司。我是國際經營管理系的學生,剛開始對公司的產品是一無所知,因為不熟悉這個產業,加上是別人用非母語來介紹這些產品,所以我感到相當的茫然無助。

       萬事起頭難。雖然我自認是新人中最無知的,但還好我們公司會提供新進員工訓練課程,所以我很幸運能和其他新人共同上課學習。上課的同事中,有在這個產業裡很有的經驗的人,並會在課堂中提出很有深度的問題。其中有幾堂課是由老闆親自教授,我總是搞砸他請我回答的問題。我那時感到很緊張並覺得壓力很大,但我一直提醒自己要定下心來、好好專心學習。在遇到困難的時候,只有靠自己來克服。

       這讓我了解到,既然身邊有這麼多經驗豐富的人,比起畏畏縮縮,反而更應該要把握機會向這些人請教與學習。我相信只要承認自己的不足,就可以比別人學到更多的東西。或許我們本來就該多問別人問題、認識他們的故事,進而了解他人會如何面對你所遭遇到的難題。

       實習期間,我負責處理各類進出口的文件並協助進行物流管理。五個月的實習結束後,我相當確定我喜歡這份工作,所以我選擇轉為正職人員,並加入了公司的採購部。

       首先,對於不熟悉採購的人,它基本上就是產品的搜尋、採買與議價,包含了貨運重量的優化與公司產品供應的管理。對於供應鏈管理較熟悉的人,採購是供應鏈管理的第一步,讓產品可以順利地送到業務部門。因為公司很多核心的產品都是進口的,所以採購格外的重要。成為正職人員後,我有了新的工作內容;我的職場導師也一步步教導我採購的流程,從尋找新的製造商與維持產品的供應,到付款條件的談判與銷售合約的審核。

       我之前也有兼職工作與實習的經驗,所以自認對職場環境不會太陌生。但這次我身負重任,所做的決定也會影響公司的獲利。我一直是一個不夠細心的人,所以警惕自己,做這份工作千萬不能大意。一個小小的錯誤可能讓公司損失金錢、時間與名聲,也會給自己帶來許多麻煩。

---

       人生我們常遇到很多困難,有時會覺得想放棄或感到極度沮喪,可是我們不應該讓這些短暫的挫折影響到生活與情緒。把這些挑戰視為成長的機會,學會用樂觀的心面對,並珍惜每一刻。有人問我為什麼要待在這個產業裡?因為我認同這家公司的理念,我也覺得公司所賣的產品是真正有價值的。

       最後,我們有一天都會自大學或研究所畢業,但學習是終生的,應該不停地充實自己。要珍惜所擁有的時間,為夢想盡最大的努力!

       Time is always against us. Limited time that we take it for granted because it's free. As I was about to graduate last June, I realized that my time as a student was soon to finish and I thought it would be good to have one last internship. For me, I look at life as an experiment, I was far more willing to take risks, to acknowledge failure, to learn and develop. I’m still young enough to start things all over again even if I failed.

---

       I work at New Chien Te Hang, it's a trading company that provide various kind of metal, ferrous and non-ferrous alloy, refractory materials and refractory equipment. As a student who graduate from International Business major, I would say that I am totally ignorant with their products. What would you expect from someone who has never been in this industry and was introduced to all about their products in a language that’s not even your mother tongue? I was totally helpless.

       Everything was pretty tough at the beginning. My company would open courses for their new recruit, and I was lucky enough to have a class with some other newcomers even though I'm pretty sure I was the most clueless person among us. One of my classmates is in her thirties and was previously working in a similar industry, she was brilliant and kept asking difficult questions. Someday our boss would give us courses and threw questions at me, which I hardly ever got it right. I was feeling anxious and stressed but rather than let it dwelled in me, I always remind myself to be calm and focus. During tough time, you could only count on yourself.

       I realized that when you are surrounded with more experienced people, rather than feeling intimidated we should use that chance to ask questions and learn more from them. I believe that when one acknowledge their inadequacy, one would learn more than all the others. Perhaps, it would also be nice if we learn by consulting people about the exact issues that hinder you and listen to their story.

       During my internship, I was responsible for logistic management and handling documents for export and import. After about 5 months of internship, I was pretty sure that I enjoy my job and decided to become their full-time employee. I was assigned to be in their procurement team.

       First of all, for people who aren't familiar with procurement, it's basically about sourcing, acquiring, and negotiating products. It also involves optimizing freight loads to warehouse and maintain company's products supply. For people who are more familiar with supply chain management, procurement actually starts the very first work of supply chain management, and delivers the product all the way to the sales department. It was important because many core products in our company are imported. After I became their full-time employee, I have some new works from my mentor, who was guiding me to handle procurement works, from searching a new potential manufacturer, maintaining our product supply, negotiating for the best payment terms and reviewing sales contract.

       I have had some part time jobs and internship before, so I thought I could imagine what would a working environment be like. However, this time I was entrusted with a great responsibility and each decision involves a lot of money. I was always a careless person, but I realized that being careless is really harmful and something I should leave behind. One simple mistake would probably cost so much money, time and reputation. I just can't afford the troubles.

       Sometimes in life we are faced with so much difficulties that we might feel like giving up at some point, however, we shouldn't let temporal things take control of our own life and feelings. Look at challenges as something that help you grow, so try to feel happy and appreciate every challenge. Some people might wonder why I'd choose to stay in this industry. The reason is, in my opinion, we should work for a company that we believe in. I believe that what my company sells is genuinely valuable.

       In time, everyone will leave university or graduate school, but never stops learning, always have the mindset and diligence of a student. Look at time as something you shouldn't take it for granted. Give your best shot in life!
