(台灣 安侯會計事務所 康同學)
When I was a freshman, I knew the International Internship Program,. I decided to join the system of volunteer, and did my best to finish all requirements. Moreover, I used my extracurricular time to participate in a variety of activities to enrich myself. Finally, I was affirmed by the interviewer during the interview. I gained the ticket which could let me enter KPMG.
After the end of the junior final exam, we were trained in Taipei. By that training, I found thatthe firm's staff training system was very well. But I also found that in school I learned really quitebasic, and there were a long distance from practical aspects.
I still remembered that day which I register to the Taichung branch next day, I fieldwork until8 pm. Otherwise, I leaved the office was more than midnight every day for a whole week. I thoughtI could take a break on weekend and do something adjust. Unexpectedly, I had to enter office towork two days of holiday. I did not have any holiday whole month. At that time, I did notunderstand anything, even did not know how to start. I felt helplessness because of unknown, andfelt nervous because of time. I was shedding tears several times when I absence from work inmidnight absence from work. I felt dispirited to want to give up. At that moment, I always told myself, "others can, why can not you?" I relied on this spirit, which was I did not want to be lookeddown upon by others. Silently, after one month, six months, one year. I always felt just to register afew days ago, how the time of internship was coming to the end.
Reminding this year, I watched myself only knew textbooks' abstract knowledge became to perform the audit work. Initially, the distance between originally and imagined bigger than I thought. There were still many things had to learn. I had to spend much time to adjust own role mentality. I thought all experience in this year, will face when each campus graduates enter the workplace. Now, I just early "practice" it. Internship that year, countless people had asked me, "Did you regret to give up be a student, to the firm internship?" By this issue, not only people ask me, to be honest, even I also asked myself several times. If I was a student, I could cut class, had more vacation, had most of the free time to arrange by myself at the university last year. As an intern, I felt happy when I could get off work before ten pm, I felt happiness when I had one day holiday, I feared to delay progress when I saw the doctor.
I not only envied student life, but also cherished the intern status. By internship, I saw the different people and things outside campus. By internship, I thought about previously my future. By internship, It narrow the distance of the accounting job imagination and reality. I felt sorry that I could not enjoy freedom of student life last year. If I had a choice again, I still would not give up the opportunity to be interns. Because I believed that after this year experienced setbacks in exchange for growing and harvest, I would be more prominent than others, and more unique in the future.
