(台灣 歐都納商品部實習生 黃同學)

在大三即將結束的學期末,我正面對著人生的第一個難題──畢業後該如何規劃。那時候,我最常聽到的一句話就是:「你畢業後打算怎麼辦?」,身旁的家人親戚都建議我可以去補習,然後考個公務人員,有個安穩的工作,或是去考研究所,將來出社會起薪也會比大學生高。可是這些選項都不是我想要的,我希望我大學畢業後可以直接工作,但問題是,現在台灣大學林立,路上滿滿的都是大學生,同樣也是大學生的我,有什麼能贏過其他人的優勢嗎?成績?積極?上進?我想這些都不是最好的答案。於是我決定參加國際職場實習,希望可以好好的利用大四這一年,把自己所欠缺的補齊。

在歐都納實習的這一年,我真的是學到了很多東西,不只學到了專業的技能,也學到了在職場上的應對進退。還記得第一天剛進公司的時候,到了一個完全陌生的環境,身旁都是完全陌生的人,然後做一個完全陌生的工作,我整個人緊張的不知道該如何是好。剛開始的一個禮拜,我完全是戰戰兢兢的在工作,深怕做錯什麼事。但後來,在同事細心的教導下,我變得愈來愈熟練,出錯率也降低許多,甚至可以開始獨立作業,不用一直向同事求助。然而就在我漸漸步上軌道的時候,負責教我的同事突然要離職了,她的工作有一半變成我要負責做,所以那陣子我的壓力真的大到不行,可是相反的,我又覺得開心,因為至少這代表公司認為我有能力可以做這些事。

在這一年的實習中,我最印象深刻的經驗是支援公司露營活動的那兩天。因為人手不足,所以我跟著同事一起到屏東當露營活動的工作人員。在這兩天的活動中,除了忙碌與玩樂,我也有了一些意外的收穫。記得當時是早晨,我與同事為了拍照而穿梭在顧客帶來的五顏六色的帳篷與戶外用品間,漸漸的,我們忘記了拍照,反而開始觀察起顧客所使用的各種器具,開始討論起那些器具為何、用途是什麼、我們公司有沒有開發等等。事後我再回想,我覺得這也算是一種學習吧,坐在辦公室裡工作是一種學習,站在大草原上玩樂也是一種學習。這兩天的露營活動之所以讓我印象深刻,不只是因為我親眼認識到了更多以前從未見過的商品,更重要的是我深刻的發覺到,「只要有心,在哪裡都可以學習。」,以後就算我離開了歐都納,我也會一直保持這種態度。

時間過得很快,轉眼我的實習已經邁入尾聲,現在我已經能很有效率的完成主管交代我的工作,也幾乎不再出錯,跟剛進公司那時候比起來,我不管是在能力或是心態上,都成熟了很多。我曾經問過其他也在實習的同學平常的工作內容是什麼,大部分的人都是在打雜,反觀我自己,做的都是正職人員的工作,雖然剛開始覺得有點辛苦,但是真的學到了很多在學校學不到的東西。我很慶幸自己可以在大學的最後一年有這樣的機會增進自己的能力,開拓自己的視野。

當初會選擇實習,是因為對未來感到迷惘,找不到自己的方向,現在,雖然還是看不太清未來的路,但我覺得我離自己心中的答案已經很近了。

In the end of the junior semester, I was facing the first big problem of life—how to plan after graduating from college. At that time, the phrase that I most often heard was: “how do you want to do after graduation?” My family and relatives suggested that I could go to after-class school to be a civil servant who have a stable job or go to a graduate school that my starting salary would be higher than the others. But these options were not what I want, I hoped I could work directly after graduating from college. However, the problem was, there were too many University in Taiwan, a lot of people were college students, so and I. What was the advantage that I could be better than others? Scores? Positive? Aspirant? I didn’t think that these were the best answers for me. So I decided to participate in the international internship, I hoped I could make a good use of my final year of college, and enrich myself.

A year in ATUNAS, I learned a lot. I learned not only professional skills, but also how to communicate and interact when facing disagreement. I still remembered the first day I entered the company, in an unfamiliar environment, facing with complete strangers, doing the work that I had never done, I was nervous that I don’t know what to do. The first week, I was completely in fear when I worked, I was afraid of doing anything wrong. But then, because of the teaching of my colleagues, I became more and more proficient and less prone to error, and I even could work by myself. However, when I started entering the state, my colleagues who was responsible for teaching me would leave suddenly, and I was responsible for doing half of her job. So, I was stressful at that time, but on the contrary, I also felt happy, at least, this represented the company thought that I had the ability to do these things.

In this year of internship, the experience which I was most impressed was two days when I was a staff in ATUNAS’ camping activity. Because of understaffed, I joined our company’s camping activity and to be a staff with my colleagues. In these two days, in addition to busy and fun, I also had some unexpected gains. I remembered that morning, my colleagues and I shuttled between the colorful tents and outdoor products for taking pictures, gradually, we forgot to take pictures, but began to observe a variety of instruments which used by the customer, and started to discuss “What is them?”, “How to use them?”, and “Did our company develop it?” Afterwards I looked back, I thought it would be a kind of learning too. Working in an office is a kind learning, playing on the prairie was also a kind of learning. The reason why this two-days made me so impressed, not just because I had seen more products that I never known before, the most important was I deeply realized that “if we really want, we can learn no matter where you are.” Even after I left ATUNAS, I would always keep this attitude.

Time flies, blink of an eye, my internship has entered the end. Now, I can finish all mission very efficiently, and almost no mistakes. To compared with that time, I just entered the company, I become more mature for my ability or mentality. I also asked my friends who were in internship, I wondered what is their work content, most of them told me they did odd jobs in their company. In contrast myself, the work I did was really work, not an odd job. Although the beginning I felt a little hard, I really learned a lot which we couldn’t learn in school. I am very glad that I have this opportunity to enhance my ability and open up my vision in the final year in college.

At that time, the reason that I would choose to participate in the international internship was I felt confuse about the future, I couldn’t find my own direction. Now, though I still can’t see the way ahead, I think I am close to the answer in my mind.
