(義大利 MYSOND 實習生 會研所 謝同學)

剛進入東海會研所沒多久,即從系網中得知系上大力推行國際職場實習並與許多知名國際企業訂定實習合約,其中一項為台灣義大利國際職場實習最讓我心動,心動的原因有兩個:第一、能瞭解歐洲國家的商業模式(非打雜工性質)並瞭解歐洲人的思考邏輯,第二則為能以少許的費用深度探訪義大利各大城市文藝復興時期所遺留下來的古蹟建築及歷代名畫,因此當我一得知有此計畫時,便馬上上網做功課及備妥資料,馬上報名。

實習生活的工作主要分為兩大類,一個是了解公司的電子資料庫,另一個是幫助公司了解化妝品銷售至亞洲的相關規定。上班的第一天,Tutor簡要的跟我說明公司的業務及未來的目標後,就要我先瞭解什麼是電子資料交換(EDI),等我瞭解後再解釋給她聽。由於電子資料交換(EDI)建置成本過高因此有許多中小企業無能力負擔此成本,因此接著要我去搜尋台灣中小企業是採用甚麼轉換系統?而我想Tutor應該已經問到他想知道的答案就給我其他項工作。

另一個工作,是Tutor的客戶想要將他們的化妝品產品銷售至大陸及台灣地區,因此希望我幫他們翻譯他們公司的網站及搜尋若要將商品銷售至大陸或台灣地區,須注意些甚麼?等結束之後,再繼續幫他們搜尋申請化妝品進入大陸及台灣地區所需的注意事項及相關過程。

IMAG4397.jpg我覺得我很幸運能到Mysond這家公司實習,雖然員工人數不多,但到那你會發現每位員工都對自己的工作充滿著熱情並享受在其中,而這種感受是會傳染的,所以一開始在那實習的我很痛苦,但漸漸的會跟他們一樣,慢慢的在享受著自己的工作,而希望這種感受能夠永無止境的持續下去。

在來義大利之前,我從未離開過台灣半步,利用實習假期,我也展開國外旅遊。到國外的第一次旅行,也讓我印象非常深刻。我們的第一次旅行是來到義大利非常著名的度假勝地-Rimini海岸,在還沒到達目的地時,大家的腦中都充滿著陽光、沙灘、比基尼及三角褲猛男,到海邊時的確看到了一堆穿比基尼及三角褲的人,但是仔細看著實讓我嚇了一大跳,

因為海灘上除了到處都是比基尼辣妹及三角褲猛男之外,也一堆比基尼奶奶及三角褲猛男阿公,這也讓我瞬間跟其他同學說,我很難想像我奶奶穿著比基尼趴在海灘上曬太陽,不過我想這也就是文化上的差異吧。

531029_564236996924757_387798611_n.jpg還有一次的旅遊經驗更讓我難以忘記,就是威尼斯之旅,我想我真的一輩子也不會忘,為甚麼呢?因為我恰巧遇上了百年來第6高的淹水,水深最高達149公分,除此之外更讓我跌破眼鏡的是,當天原本打算舉行的威尼斯尋寶大賽既然沒有因為淹水而取消,反而正常的舉行,參加的人也沒有因為淹水而退出比賽,這給我們外的來的人上了一場震撼教育!!!

雖然此次的威尼斯遊大部分的景點我們都無法過去,但不過也還是擁有一個特別的經歷集體驗。

實習期間還發生了一件讓我一輩子難忘的意外事件,那就是住院。這真是倒楣的一件事,由於之前午睡時,可能睡姿不良,導致睡醒時有腰痠的問題,在家休息了兩天還未康復,因此就想說去大醫院檢查一下,結果醫生初步檢查完認為我是盲腸炎,需留院觀察,這讓我著實嚇了一大跳,也嚇到其他人,因為我明明只是腰痠,怎麼搞到要住院,這是我人生第一次住院躺在病床上,而第一次就奉獻給了義大利,還好隔天經過完整的診斷之後,沒有甚麼問題!!!這兩天真的要感謝大家的關心和幫忙,感謝在我生病中煮飯給我吃的冠逸、雅竹及嘉嘉,感謝倒楣的子慧(因為他跟我在醫院待了一整晚,還沒得睡),感謝孜力提供一些養身的保健食品,最後感謝大家對我的關心,真的很謝謝大家。

在義大利待了五個月,說長也不長,說短也不短,但這時間已足以讓我深入的了解這個充滿歷史文化的國度。

(一)對義大利人的瞭解

1. 以自己的國家為榮

義大利人非常驕傲,很以自己國家為榮,所以到義大利時一定要學會一些義大利文,英文不是不能通,而是即使他們會英文,他們也不願意說,因為他們會覺得來他們國家就是要說他們的語言。

義大利人很支持自己國家的品牌,在路上行走時,你可以看見大部份的義大利人身上穿的及手上拿的都是自己國家的品牌,例如以包包來說,你可以輕易看到揹著Gucci包的義大利人 ,但是你絕對不容易看到揹著LV包的義大利人。

另外來義大利一段期間後,你也會發現義大利沒有星巴克,因為他們不准星巴克進入來破壞他們的咖啡文化。

2. 生活

義大利的學生不像台灣學生一樣會趁著周末去打工賺點零用錢或學費,因為他們非常注重家庭,周末時幾乎會全家一起出遊,像是海邊、公園等地方,所以夏天去海邊遊玩時,妳除了會看到比基尼辣妹或三角褲猛男外,妳還會看到比基尼太太、比基尼阿嬤及三角褲阿公,這讓我見識到保守國家及開放國家之間的差異。

(二)對義大利的瞭解

來義大利一段期間後,你也會發現義大利有很多不同色種的人,他們通常都是外來的移民,

而會移民來義大利大多都是阿爾巴尼亞、摩洛哥、中國及羅馬尼亞等地區的人。這外來移民通常居住在同個區域,這個區域就會因為人種多複雜而比較危險,因此我們到當地旅遊時,都刻意避開這個區域。

其實義大利人很討厭這些外來移民,因為義大利的經濟已經不是很好了,當地人要找工作已經夠難了,更何況這些移民,因此導致義大利的乞討人、偷竊案及搶案不斷的攀升,也造成許多人對義大利有些負面的觀感。

此行,我還有一個額外的收穫,那就是”有勇氣的人不是甚麼都不怕,而是即使會怕也會奮不顧身的去做。”

參加TIP讓我學到了想做就去作的勇氣,在11月的時候,我做了一件讓自己很有成就感的事,就是巴黎自助行!從訂機票、飯店及路程規畫都由自己來。我在台灣都不敢自助了,沒想到在人生地不熟語言又不通的情況下,勇敢的給他走下去,只因想去的心已經大於其他風險的顧慮了。這趟旅程也讓我發現到其實法國人不是大家所講的那麼冷漠,因為在旅途中時常會迷路和不知道怎麼搭火車,而當有些法國人發現你是觀光客而且有問題時就會主動的來詢問你是否需要幫忙,我在這次的旅途中就接受了很多次的幫忙,所以才讓我了解其實法國人也蠻友善的。

When I studied in department of accounting Tunghai University, and got information about international internship program ,one of them made me interested ; it is Taiwan Italy International Internship Program, There are two reasons made me interested:(1) To understand the business model of Europe and understand the thinking of Europeans logic.(2) To visit Italian cities Renaissance legacy of historic buildings and ancient paintings by spending a little money.

The first day of my internship, tutor introduced the company and its goals, and then I started to work. First, he wanted me to understand what electronic data Interchange (EDI) is then explained to him.

The development cost of electronic data interchange (EDI) is very high, so he wanted me to search what the conversion system is in small and medium companies in Taiwan.

Tutor’s customers wanted to sell their cosmetics to China and Taiwan, so they asked me to help them for translation of their company’s website and searching important information about entering the precautions.

I think I was lucky being able to intern into Mysond company ; although owning a small number of employees, you can find that each employee is full of enthusiasm for his work and is enjoyable , this feeling is contagious practice that began in a extreme pain, but I gradually got the same as them who slowly enjoying their work, and hope this feeling lasts.

This is my first trip abroad, I have not left from Taiwan before I came to Italy, so this first trip made me impressed. Our first trip to a famous Italian resort-Rimini coast, before arriving our destination, everyone's brain is filled with the image of sun, sand, bikini briefs Takeo.  Indeed, we saw a lot of people wearing bikini briefs on the beach, but it shocked when I saw again clearly.

Not only bikini babes and briefs slugger are everywhere on the beach, but also a lot of bikini grandmother and briefs Takeo Lukar, . I instantly talked to my schoolmates that, I can not imagine my grandmother wears a bikini lying on the beach  for suntan, but I think this is the cultural differences.

I think I will never forget the Venezia trip in my life because I met the sixth higher flooding in hundred years, the water depth is up to 149 cm. In Addition it made ​​me amazed that the day originally is intended to hold Venice treasure hunt contest but it was not canceled because of flooding, it is normally held, every participated in nor out of the race because of flood, which gives us a shock education!!

Although this trip cannot let us visit most attractions we still have special experience.

This is really unlucky thing. In afternoon nap, my poor sleeping position made me backache. I took a rest in dormitory for two days but I still feel not good .Therefore I went to hospital to check. After checking, the doctor told me I probably got appendicitis, the news let other schoolmates and me shocked because I just felt backache and I need to stay in hospital for two nights, it is my first time hospitalizing lying-in bed and I dedicated such first experience to Italy. Luckily, in the next day after I completed diagnosis, the doctor told me I do not have any big problem.

I want to thank everyone talking care of me when I got sick.

The time of five months is not very long but it is enough for my understanding Italian culture and history.

(1) Understanding of Italians by me

1). Patriotic

Italian are very proud of their own country; you must learn some Italian. Although they speak English, they are reluctant to do so because they think Italian as the language of their country should be spoken when being in Italy.

Italian support their brands from their country very much. You can see what most of them wear and carry on the road are their brands.  (EX:You can easily see Italians people carry Gucci bags but you absolutely can not see them carrying LV bags)

In addition, you absolutely can not see Starbucks in Italy because they do not allow Starbucks to destroy their coffee culture.

2). Living

Italian are very family-oriented; for example, Italian students do not have part time jobs on weekend, it is different between Taiwanese students. Most of family have trips together on weekend in locations, such as beaches, parks and other places. In summer, you will see bikini babes and briefs sluggers, even bikini grandma and briefs grandpa which surprised me a lot between conservative country and opening up countries.

(2)Understanding of Italy by me

You will find different races in Italy, most of them are immigrants to Italy from Albania, Morocco, China and Romania. Immigrants usually live in the same area; this area will be more complex and more dangerous because of the races so we went to the local tourism deliberately to avoid the area. In fact, Italians hate immigrants, because Italy's economy has been not very good, and locals are not easy to get a job, thus, these immigrants’ issues arise not only constant begging, thefts, robbery also caused some negative perceptions of Italian to those immigrants.

The man with courage does not mean he is afraid of nothing but even if he is afraid, he still will face.

I learned the courage to do anything that you want to do from Taiwan Italy International Internship Program (TIP). In November, I visited Paris by myself. It is make me have achievement as I booked air tickets, hotels and planned all by myself.

It is very amazing because I dare not visit around Taiwan by myself but I was brave to go to Paris. I think it is just because I want to go so I do not care anything. This amazing trip let me found the Frenchman is not cold as described. If you get into trouble, most of them are willing to help you.
