Cassini Cheung | Department of Japanese Studies, CUHK Menu

Working in Japanese company, Mitsui & Co. (H.K.) Ltd., was a great opportunity. Even though the internship programme only lasted a few weeks, the lessons that I have learnt will last a lifetime.

During the programme, I learnt more about the structure of a Japanese firm. Moreover, I can get involved in an industry that was entirely new to me. I was able to meet some Japanese staff in the company. It was a great opportunity to try to speak Japanese with them. All my colleagues were very nice and have taught me a lot. I knew nothing about plastic industry at the beginning. However, due to their enthusiastic teaching, I gained a deeper understanding. I was really pleased to have worked with them.

As a student majoring in Japanese Studies, I feel that this experience was beneficial to my future career. It provides me with a basic concept of what kind of jobs I can do after I graduate. I was glad to have joined in this programme.
