My first day of work
2017-10-26

 [SCIE web news, Nov 3rd, 2017] I am 2016er graduate Daniel Liu. I’m now a student in Emory University. By sharing my stories in the US and some of my personal thoughts, I hope to give you an insight into what student life here is really like. This can also act as a guidance for your future college choice.

 

 

Last time I talked about how I got my first internship in the US. This time I will share with you what’s it like in my first day of work.

 

After my class ended, I changed up and drove to the BridgeStone(BSG) office. On my way there, I was still a bit nervous about what I am going to face. Of course, this is normal for a person on his first day to work.

 

When I arrived at the office, HR assistant Cathy took me on a tour inside the office. She showed me all the different departments such as IT, Sales, Customer Service and Marketing. I’m working in the Marketing department as an intern along with three of my superiors Zach, Eliot and Ken. Ken is a Japanese and he is my direct superior. He told me how appreciate he is that I have accepted the offer and how important a role I will be. I really like him.

 

Zach gave me an introduction about BSG’s main product: Golf Balls. I was never an expert on golf so all those terminologies he used were completely new to me. He showed me how the golf balls were made and what there were made of. What technologies they were using and what’s their products’ main characteristics. I was surprised to see the level of complexity inside a tiny golf ball.

 

The first day of work was basically for me to adapt to the working environment and get some training on the products and brand. It has been fruitful for me and I got know the people I’m going to be working with for the next few months.
