 在大學裡,或許是因為認識了不少外國朋友,增漲了不少對於異國文化的好奇,而想要深入了解和親身體驗,進而萌生了一個念頭:『看著他們那麼享受交換計畫的生活,那為何我不也試試看並把握機會呢?』。當時的我是一位大四生,正面臨即將畢業必須尋找工作的困境,正當我徬徨於不知該繼續讀書還是該直接出社會工作時,因緣際會下得知TIP的義大利交換實習計畫,此計畫不僅可以在真正的職場實習、還能同時學習專業課程及義大利文,這對我來說是再好不過的機會,所以我毫不遲疑地就申請。

   很幸運的最終我獲得了能夠參與實習的機會,一開始還有點擔心,畢竟是要到一個非常遙遠且文化完全不同的地方實習,也必須和以前從來沒有見過面得九位夥伴住在一起並一起上課,可以說是在義大利的每分每秒都相處在一起,但身為喜歡挑戰和不愛待在舒適圈的我,怎麼可以被這一點點擔心給打敗呢?在這個計畫裡,我實習的公司是“Asterisco Tech”是一間設計和製造用於生產末端測試的測試台以及汽車和航空航太領域的研發實驗室活動,我們公司大約有二十多位同事。還記得第一天實習當天,我搭公車抵達公司,我抱著忐忑不安的心走上樓梯,心想等等要說什麼,沒想到一開門,迎接我的就是一連串熱情的招呼,老闆帶著我認識各位同事,我原本以為義大利人應該多多少少會說英文,沒想到是幾乎不會說,這讓我很訝異,但正因為如此讓我更加認真學習義大利文,希望的就是能跟他們至少有基本的溝通能力,很慶幸即使我的同事不太會說英文,卻還是很努力並很熱情地想跟我聊天,即使是互相比手畫腳我們也都樂在其中,不到一個禮拜的時間,我和同事之間可以說是非常熟悉,我們不只在工作的時候互相幫忙,也會大家一起相約出遊聚餐並帶著我熟悉環境。在工作的方面,老闆都會跟我分享一些想往亞洲市場發展的想法,並一起討論該從何做起,所以我先從設置公司的中文官方網站開始,以及設計新版中英目錄和公司機台型錄,並同時學習繪製工程圖。

    在這半年裡,我學習到的不只是工作上的技巧,更學習到了同事間的待人處世,以及更圓滑的溝通技巧,身為第九屆TIP的隊長,從加入這個計畫的第一天開始,便身負重任,不只是必須處理各位夥伴在義大利大大小小的事情,也必須擔任教授和學生之間溝通得橋樑,正也因為如此,學的更多、責任心越強、收穫的也更多,真的很開心有機會成為這個計畫的一員,也正因為這個計畫,讓我更清楚我未來想要走的路,想要做的事,因為機會永遠都是要自己努力爭取得,若是努力後才失敗那更有成長的空間,若是連試都不試就覺得會失敗,那永遠也得不到自己想要的東西,真的很慶幸當時的選擇,讓我這半年一點遺憾也沒有還交到了很多世界另一頭的朋友。

    Perhaps because I have met many foreign friends in my university life, I have increased a lot of curiosity about foreign cultures, and I want to have a deep understanding and personal experience, and then I have a thought: “they seem to enjoy about the exchange life, then why don't I try and get opportunity? ”. At that time, I was a senior, and I was facing the dilemma of finding a job when I was about to graduate. When I was confuse about whether I should continue to study or should find a job, then I knew about TIP program as a coincident. This project not only can intern in real working place, but also can have international courses and Italian language classes. This is such a great opportunity for me, so I applied it without hesitation.

    Fortunately, I finally got the opportunity to participate in this internship. At the beginning I was worried because  I had to go to a place that was very far away and completely different in culture also I had to live with nine partners who had never met before. As another way to say that we spent every moment in Italy, but as a person who likes to challenge and does not like to stay in the comfort zone, how can I be defeated by this little worry? In this project, my internship company is "Asterisco Tech", a research and development laboratory for the production of end-tests and R&D labs in the automotive and aerospace fields. There are more than 20 colleague in our company. I still remember the first day of the internship. I took the bus to the company. I walked up the stairs with a restless heart. I thought about what should I say when I saw them. I didn’t expect about that I greeted with a series of warm greetings when I opened the door. The boss introduced me to all my colleagues. I thought that the Italians should speak English more or less. But the fact is that almost all of them hardly to speak English. This made me very surprised, but also because of this, I am more serious about learning Italian. I hope that at least I can have basic conversations with them. I am glad that even my colleagues don't speak English very much, they still work hard and enthusiastically want to chat with me. We are all really happy about that. In one week, I already got really close to all my colleagues. We were not only help each other at work, but we also met and had dinners together and showed me around. About the work, my boss shared with me some ideas about developing Asian market and discussed about how to start, so I started with setting up the company's Chinese official website and designed new version of the Chinese/English catalogue, company machine and learned how to draw engineering drawing too.

    In the past six months, I have learned not only the skills at work, but also friendship of colleagues and the smoother communication skills. As the captain of the ninth TIP program. Since I joining the project I already have a lot of responsibility. It is not only need to solve many things for all TIP program partners in Italy, but also need to be the communication between professors and students. Because of this, I learn more, be more responsible, and got more. I am really happy about having the opportunity to be a member of this project, and because of this, let me clear  more about what I want in the future and what I want to do, “Don't wait for opportunity, but to create opportunities.”

If you never try, you will never get what you want. I am really glad about what did I choose at that moment. During this half year, I have no regret and I am really cherish about having a lot of friends on the other side of the world.
