Interview with Tomosuke'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.

Gavin Reid, Controller, Texas Instruments Japan

Interview with Tomosuke'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.

Yuko Nuki, Manager, Marketing Pricing, Texas Instruments Japan
