不知道在台灣的學子們有沒有當過實習生的經驗呢?在國外,大公司的實習生職位,可是大家搶破頭也要得到的一份工作呢!雖然有些實習工作是沒有支薪的,但是只要能夠表現優異,絕對是有可能在結束後,順利成為正式員工的呢!




這部片雖然有種給人太過置入性行銷的感覺,不過以整部片描述的情境,Google還真的是一個令人嚮往到不行的公司呢!有志青年們,快衝吧!努力工作、盡情揮灑青春吧!





小編年輕的時候當過無薪實習生,那段日子雖然很辛苦,工作量大,矇懞懂懂去上了班,發現身邊的老鳥們各各身經百戰,第一天就嚇得我想要逃跑,好險後來靠著一股好勝心撐了下來,現在回想起來,從那份實習工作,抱走了前輩們好多的實戰經驗呢!這邊鼓勵年輕的同學們,剛出社會不要太計較薪水,能夠得到經驗才是最無價的!
