From Zhengzhou to Shanghai – My italki internship experience

Richard[English translation below]

来到italki做实习生是我做过最正确的一个选择,这个决定影响的了我的一生。由于这是我的第一份工作所以我对在italki的工作的所有回忆都很深刻。我从中日常的工作和实习项目中学习到了很多东西还有结交了很多朋友。 在来到italki之前我曾想象过很多次这个公司的环境会是怎样,我会在哪里做些什么,我的同事们会是谁,

我想这是大多数人在即将要参加工作或者做实习生的时候都会产生这种感觉。所幸的是我选择的是italki,italki证明了我的正确的选择甚至给我以后的职业生涯起到了一个良好的开端。我非常荣幸可以加入到italki的服务部门和一些有着丰富经验的员工一起工作,他们在这段时间里尽力的帮助我和教授我很多有关工作的知识,所以我才能够学习和适应得非常快。我所负责的任务非常简单但是这并不代表这不重要。我通常是辅助一些日常的信息管理工作然后可以减轻正式员工的压力,从而使他们可以专注于一些更重要的任务。一旦你适应了在italki工作,你就能享受在italki工作的乐趣。

784558940173197552在italki的办公室充满着自由和个性的气息,你只需要遵守一些最基础的规则。而且作为一个实习生你完全不用做很多工作,你可以适当的休息调整一下。 我现在还记得我第一次参加公司活动的场景,这个活动有三个部分而我选择了陶艺,因为我从来没有见过这种艺术,但是我做出来的泥巴看起来糟透了,所以我也没有告诉任何人那个是我做的。不管怎样,这是一段我无法忘怀的回忆。

我觉得我运气实在是太好了,因为有机会参加了公司一年一度的公司旅行,通过这次旅行我去了一切从前从没有去过的地方还认识到了很多其他部门的员工。同时,这次旅行也让我了解到很多关于italki的故事,比如italki是如何建立和发展,italki是如何运用技术来改变时间和影响全世界的语言学习者。 italki会有很多实习项目让实习生去挑战,从中你可以发现自己的长处和发展方向,展现你处理事务的能力的思维模式。它可能对实习生有一定的挑战性,但是这是一个绝佳的机会去提升自我在一个商务的环境中。 时间飞逝,转眼间我已经在这里工作整整两个月了。我刚刚意识到我在这里已经学习到很多很棒的知识和工作经验。我相信在你的心里始终有些你永生无法忘记的记忆或者经历,不管你将来在哪里生活,学习,工作。人生因选择和意志而精彩。

richard2Working at italki is the best choice I’ve ever made which has changed the rest of my life. Every moment of the each piece of the memory in the past totally 2 months makes me grow and give me a wonderful journey since this is my first internship that I’ve gained lots of benefits from and got to know the kind friends through the daily works and projects.
I’d imagined so many times what I would do,what the environment was,what the staff looked before I came here. I think it’s a common feeling when people generally take a job for the first time.However,italki verified my decision and showed me a sensational beginning of my future career. I’m honored to join the service team and work with experienced staff who helped and trained me up so that I could learn fast and effectively. My task was pretty easy to handle and study but it does not mean what I was doing was not essential. Usually, I have three sections to assist the employees, help them reduce the number of community management, teacher profile change requests, etc, which were not complicated and difficult.

Once you’ve been accustomed to working at italki, you would definitely enjoy the culture of italki at the office. At italki, you are almost completely free with your mind and acting, as long as you obey some slight rules. As an intern, you do not need to do lots of work which makes you tired or bored. In other words, you can take a break properly during the work time.

richard1I still remember the first time I joined the company activity which had three parts,and I chose pottery out since I never learned such an amazing art before. Unfortunately, my work looked terrible and ugly, so I did not tell anyone which one was mine. Anyway, it’s one of my unforgettable events in the fascinating company, I love it so much!
I think I’m a lucky guy who had the opportunity of engaging the whole company trip 2016. Which was fabulous for me to travel some interesting places and nice sightseeing with the other staff from the different departments. I also got the chance to explore the more details about the process of establishing italki and how italki’s development is changing the world and influencing languages learner and revolution.
There were a lot of projects are attractive and interesting, you can totally figure out what your strength are by doing various projects and discuss with the other staff what you think and how you are going to try it with your mind and thought. It may be a challenge for interns but it’s also a good chance to build up your ability of thinking and growing in a business environment.
