Phuong in her final, professional photo shoot at Xport
My three-month internship at Xport eventually comes to an end. I would like to say a special “Thank you” to the Xport team members who have been very kind and supportive to me. I am truly grateful for your help and support in the last 3 months.
During my internship in Xport, I became more aware of the business situation in Etelä-Pohjanmaa, companies and important people in the region that I haven’t known before, such as, Vientikilta, a networking group for entrepreneurs in E-P, funding associations like Ely-Keskus or local organizations promoting businesses like Kauppakamari. Equally important, I learned more about export-related things, for example, what export companies should do before entering an international market and how a market research is conducted.
It has been more than 1 month since I started my internship in Xport. Before I began, I set my own goals which are to learn, to help and to contribute. I expected that I could learn such things as language skills, Export-related things, doing market research & tips for doing international business from Xport team’s hands-on experiences. As an International business student, I am well aware of the significance of Export-Import and doing business overseas. Therefore, I think an international company like Xport is a good place for an intern to acquire knowledge about those fields.
