Interview with Chaoyi's Internship Sponsor

Things have been done the Japanese way, but we're a multinational company. To increase the level of communication, speaking in English is important, and that's where I believe having bilingual interns can help.

Interview with Chaoyi's Internship Sponsor

When we talk about projects, it's really about timing. It is fortunate that we had a project that we could get the internship student to be involved in both last year and this year. That's very exciting, but I think even without a project, we will be able to provide an experience that actually gets into the day-to-day work execution.
