Pasona Group Inc. started the Internship Programme in 1987. This programme began by sending university students to Japan to work for Japanese companies as summer interns. Their salary, housing costs and airfare are paid for by the employers. Interns from different countries joined this programme.
Mr. Edwin Tang was selected as the Hong Kong representative and worked for the Coaxial Division of Technical Department of Hirose Electric Co. Limited in Japan from July to August 2016. His major duties were computer graphics and product testing.
On weekends, he took part in several activities arranged by Pasona Group Inc.
- Visiting an airport
- Joining the Asahi brewery tour
- Participating in the cultural exchange programme in Kamakura
- Visiting Tokyo Skytree
- Attending Pasona Group seminars, etc.
Edwin highly recommended this programme and said it helped him improve his Japanese conversational skills and learn more about Japanese corporate culture. He could also make a lot of new friends with the Japanese colleagues at Hirose Electric as well as the university students from other countries. In the future, he is planning to work in Japan, so this valuable experience is very useful for his future career.
