( CHIAVARI實習生 宮同學 東海大學經濟系產經組四年級 )

想當初在面臨要找工作還是繼續升學的時候,無意之間在學校官網看到TIP計畫的宣傳廣告。那時候就想,很多想要出國讀研究所的人都擁有差不多的經驗和成績,但不是很多人都有出國實習的經驗,如果我參加這項海外實習計畫,應該對我未來有非常大的幫助。正是因為這個理由,讓我開始著手準備報名參加這次的義大利實習計畫。

一開使來到義大利,所有的一切都跟在台灣的生活很不一樣,不變的交通,不完美的地理位置,所有的生活都要自己處理,不會再有老師或是父母在背後一一叮嚀,唯有靠身邊的朋友互相幫助,相互提醒,過了一段時間,漸漸習慣在這裡的日子,習慣半小時一班的公車,習慣跟不同人的宿舍生活,習慣每天生活作息正常。生活規律了,也更懂得如何在團體裡生活。

在工作上,因為到高端傢俱製作公司上班,整個工作內容和工作環境都跟在台灣工作是非常不一樣。身為商學院的學生,在以前教授只會教我們讀報表、看個案,藉由別人成功的商業案例,知道別人怎麼做行銷。所以四年商學院,我學會如何控制預算,如何賺取利益,如何寫行銷個案。但這半年的實習裡面,我有多半的時間在欣賞高端設計,並且試著了解基礎設計理念,這些東西是在我大學期間根本不能學到的。在這半年我不但增進了我報告的能力,更重要的是是我學會怎麼將好的設計放入商業個案裡面。拿頻果手機舉例,為何這麼多人會想要花大筆錢去購買它呢?原因很簡單,沒有人會排斥美麗的事物,所以如果未來我懂得如何將美的設計放入我家米的產品上,我相信會更能讓大家喜歡。

這半年除了工作,我們一群人還到了很多地方,像是義大利國內知名景點卡布里島或是趁著聖誕假期到冰島、倫敦、巴黎。在這之中最令我印相深刻的就是冰島。一個冰與火共融的國家,許多知名景點都是大自然的景觀。當看到這些壯麗的景觀很容易讓人拋開一切煩惱,看到大自然的美景才感受的到人類的渺小。除此之外,冰島人也有很多值得我們學習的地方,在冰島往返各個城市沒有很多的大眾交通運輸,因為他們認為永續發展比開發觀光更重要,如果我們大家不共同去維護這些美景,以後我們的子子孫孫就無法欣賞的到相同的美景。

這半年生活上我學到如何團體生活,工作上學到很多職場技巧,遊玩上讓我視野更寬闊。最重要的是這半年讓我對我的人生目標有個重大的改變,在還沒來之前我原本想說結束這個計畫就準備出國讀研究所,但經過這半年後我卻改變我的想法了,再去過這麼多國家,遇到這麼多人,每次都無法很清楚的跟外國人介紹台灣還有解事我們跟中國的不同。所以我想做的事向外國人介紹台灣,許多外國人會來台灣玩,多半都只會去交通方便的地區或是知名景店,但很多景點或是在地文化是外國人無法瞭解,卻是很代表台灣的,如果可以創一個平台可以由台灣年輕人用屬於我們自己的方式介紹台灣給外國年輕人。像是,多半台灣年輕人都是機車代步,如果我們用機車方式帶外國人認識台灣,不但可以到達很多小巷,也用最屬於我們的方式將我們的故鄉介紹給外國人。

At the beginning when I faced the choice of next step, I saw the TIP program on the school website accidently. At that time, I thought people who want to study abroad have similar experience and grade. However, not so many people have an experience about intern oversea. I believed that if I had this experience, I could be different form other people. Because of this reason, I started to prepare apply this program.

At first I came to Italy, everything was totally different form Taiwan's life. The transportation was inconvenient. The place we lived wasn't perfectly. We needed to deal with life by ourselves. There was no longer that parents and professors were kept remind you. We just had each other. After a period of time, I used the daily life in here. Such as the few bus in one hour or live with different people. Life became regular, and so dose the life in one group.

Due to I work in the bespoke furniture-making company, the life was different form I was in Taiwan. In the past, professors just taught us read the report or realize the business plan. Knowing how to do marketing by reading successful business plans. Nonetheless, during the internship in CHIAVARI, I had a lot of time to admire and understand high-end design. This was impossible that I can learn those thing from my college’s life. In this half year, I was not only improved my ability of presentation, but also knew how to put good design into a business plan. Take an IPHONE for instance. Why so many people want to pay a lot of money on buying an IPHONE? The reason is no one will reject a beautiful thing. Therefore, if I can put some design on my home productions, maybe it will become popular.

We went to so many places during this half year, such as Capri Island in Italy or Iceland, London, Paris during the Christmas holiday. The most impressive place was Iceland—a country combined ice and fire. A lot of famous places in Iceland are nature sceneries. Comparing with the ecological environment, the original humans are so small. Additionally, we could learn a variety of things from Iceland people. There are just a few public transportations in Iceland, due to they believe that sustainable development is more important than tourism. It is impossible that our offspring can admire the same view, if we aren’t protected this view together.

In this half year, I learned how to live in a group form life. I learned plenty skill from work. I boarded my vision from tourism. The most important thing was I changed my life goal. Before I came here, I thought after I finished this program, I prepared for my master’s degree. However, I changed my mind after I finished this program. During this six months, I went to a lot of places in Italy and also other countries. Visiting different cities and meeting different people. When I tried to introduce Taiwan to foreign, most of them were confused China and Taiwan. Sometime I was uncomfortable about this. However, when I calmed down and thought, I realized young people like us in Taiwan don’t realize our own culture comprehensively. Therefore, we cannot introduce our culture to other people efficiently, we just say we are different from China. But why? We cannot really realize. In conclusion. I want to introduce Taiwan to foreigners. So many foreigners would come to Taiwan, most of them would just go to some place where can go easily and some famous location. Nonetheless, a lot of places in Taiwan that foreigner cannot visit are pretty significant and can present the local culture. If I can create a platform let young Taiwanese use our own way to introduce Taiwan to young foreigners. For example, most of young people in Taiwan have scooter, if we can use scooters to take foreigners knowing Taiwan. It not only can reach a lot of small allies in Taiwan, but also be the best method to present our own culture.
