Student Voices

I was very excited when I did my internship at a marketing company here in Fukuoka. The whole Japanese work environment was new to me and I was afraid of making any mistakes. However the company staff was very helpful and treated me as one of their work colleagues. At the end of my internship I acquired very useful skills in designing presentations, equipped marketing analysis tools and even prepared an in-house research on how to improve the customer needs for one of our big clients.
