會想參加這個計畫,是因為當初看到系上的學姊在義大利實習,覺得也太羨慕了吧!17年暑假曾在美國打工過的我,對國外並不陌生,也一直想再多看看這世界,而我也非常少聽到別人有在海外實習的經驗,也認為這個機會,可能會對我的人生有很大的轉折及幫助,直到後來TIP第九屆招生時,我詢問了學姊很多關於義大利實習的事情,聽完覺得很心動,就下定決心報名,且一定要面試成功,讓我在畢業前可以多看看國外的工作環境是什麼樣子,多體驗不一樣的文化生活。

而已經習慣在都市生活的我,來到了義大利佩魯賈這個小城鎮,脫離了台灣的舒適圈,離開熟悉的家人朋友,這裡的一切跟台灣都非常不一樣,也與來自不大學的實習生一起生活,我想這也是我人生中經歷最久的一次團體生活了吧!

我的實習企業是一家電機工程公司,一開始被分配到這家企業有些許錯愕,除了每天花五小時通勤外,也因為沒有相關領域的知識,對於非本科系的我幫上的忙還是非常有限,但我還是利用通勤時間去思考,今天我可以為公司做些什麼,我能夠給公司帶來什麼。實習的這段期間,不但讓我增進了不少市場分析的能力,也加強了我許多國際溝通的技巧。

而在實習之外的時間,我也到了義大利很多地方旅行,即使語系和文化都跟我非常遙遠,但我還是非常喜歡義大利人的熱情,和每個城市各有的文化氛圍,每一次旅行都給了我很不一樣的體悟,我認為旅行其實是一件很不簡單的事,拋開繁瑣的前置作業,還得臨機應變每個突發狀況,感謝每個曾跟我出遊的夥伴,因為你們讓旅行不只是旅行,是停留在我記憶中美好的片刻。

在這段期間我最印象深刻的是遇到年紀比較大的人們,有些人聽到我是來義大利實習,他們都非常驚喜,大多數人都對我說真的很棒,他們很後悔年輕時沒有多去看看世界,真的要勇敢的踏出去。無論實習、旅行都會讓我看到、學習到我從未設想到的東西,我覺得我學到最珍貴的是,不需要把自己設定在哪個階段就該完成什麼事情,有想法、有夢想就想辦法去實踐,很感謝TIP給我這個機會來義大利實習,不管是實質上的獨立自主、工作能力或是心境上的任何改變,都跟以前的我有很大的不同,我想我現在會更勇敢的去學習任何有興趣、想學習的事物,也對一切我所擁有的抱持著感謝的心!

The reason why I participated TIP internship program is my senior sister in the school she was the student of them before. She shared lots of experience about this internship program and inspired me to join. Not only I was so admired her but also I rarely known others who has the experience of overseas internship. In addition, I have worked in the U.S for summer vacation in 2017 and I’m not strange with foreign country. Moreover, I would like to see the foreign workplace and experience the different cultural life. As a result, I determined to apply this program and swore to pass the interview.

After coming to Perugia I have different feelings since I have been used to living in the city. Everything here in Italy is totally different from Taiwan. Also, I was living with the other interns from various university. By living together, it's also a challenge for me. I think this is also the longest group life that I experienced in my life.

My internship company is an engineering machinery enterprise. At the first, I was very confused that I was assigned to this company. Not only it took me five hours for commuting every day but also I don't know anything about engineering because I was majoring in Economics. However, I still use my extra time to think about what I can do for the company. During the period of internship, not only my marketing analysis ability have improved but also strengthened my international communication skills.

Outside of the internship, I have been to many places in Italy. Even though the language and the culture are very far away from me, I still like the enthusiasm of the Italians and the atmosphere of each city. The most important of all, I considered that traveling is not that simple. Aside from the advance preparation, also the sudden situation. Thanks to the partner who has traveled with me. Everyone made the best memories in my life.

The most impressed me is that the older people I have met, they were all very surprised when knowing I came to Italy for internship. Most of them told me I was very lucky. Regardless of internship and travel, both of them will make me to see or learn the things that I never expect. The most precious things I have learned is that I don't need to set myself at what age to do anything. If I have dreams or thoughts, I should go for it. I am very grateful that TIP gave me this opportunity to come to Italy as an intern. Whether the independence, working ability or the change of my mind, it has been very different from the past. I think I will be braver to learn anything that I am interested in and always being thankful for everything that I have!
