    I start to build my future career with the very first

    stones from Global Talent programme

    In the first week, I only stayed at International Affairs office

    and had some short talks with one or two people. They

    helped me to understand the company and shared with

    me many things about living and travelling in Nagoya.

    From the second week, I went out with people in Sales

    department. The job of staff in Sales department is to meet

    customers and negotiate about the chemical products of

    Tsuchiya. Their main customer is Toyota and thats the great

    reason why I had a wonderful internship. I had the chance

    to visit so many museums as well as so many plants of

    Toyota. Thanks to this internship, I gazed with my own eyes

    the incredible manufacturing process of Toyota, with lots of

    automatic robots. Besides, I also viewed many newest

    model cars of this famous group and even sat on a modern

    model, which is going to be used in the future. Thats about

    Toyota and of course, Tsuchiya didnt connect me to only

    Toyota. The customers of Tsuchiya are other big groups such

    as Denso, Nissan, Brother, Canon etc. The more customers

    Tsuchiya have, the more museums, companies, factories

    you can visit.

    When I was small, I had a dream to visit Japan and thanks

    to this internship, my dream already came true. Japanese

    are truly hospitable and amiable, to the point my eyes

    often went teary receiving their kindness.
