(台灣 資誠事務所實習生 劉同學)
When I just entered Thunghai and heard the internship project, I yearned for it and admired the senior who join it. I wish I could join the project, too, and I realized. Time flies, the internship of mine is going to be end. One year ago, I was worried about my personal autobiography, the interview, and the outcome of the interview. Now, I have been an inter for a year.
At the beginning, I don’t know what workpapers are, what they are doing, where it would show on the report, and I started my internship. I was poor of the skills of excel, , and I was afraid of asking the client alone. Now, my skills of excel is better, and it replace Word and PPT becomes one of the soft that I used the most. Whn I asking the questions, I can’t ask the point immediately, but I’m not afraid of talking to clients. I learn more than the student who stay in school in this year.
The process is not entirely good. I encounter lots of difficult. I was scolded by the client and the senior. Sometimes, I wonder if I could handle this job or not, but I told myself that one cannot make an omelet without breaking eggs. I have to sacrifice the time for sleep to finish my job, but I get a sense of accomplishment from finish the job on time, and confidence from being praised by the senior. No one can growth without difficult, only the person who persist can make it.
When I found out I have to go to Hsinchu to start my internship, I was hesitated, because it is a strange city to me. While, I am happy that I accepted it, because PwC hold lots of activities to encourage us, such as carving the pumpkins and riding the bikes. The most important thing is that the people I met are very good. Although we come from different cities, different schools, and we are not at the same age, we are just like friends. Because we are not at the same age, when I talk to different people, I could get different answers. It can help me think.
Choosing to intern is pretty hard. When I saw my peers enjoyed the last year of the university, but we need to stay up late and work, I feel torment. I did think of giving up, but this is the way I choose, I need to finish it. Maybe I can’t get the full grades, and there are lots of things need to be improved, but I do grow up. Everything I experienced made who I am today. I am happy that I choose to intern, and finish it. I can say loudly, I have no regret about choosing to intern in Hsinchu.
