Story: 
I believe that an internship/49ership is important because it allows students an opportunity to apply what they have learned in the classroom to actual business situations. As a part of my internship with Tekmatex, Inc., I have improved my teamwork, organization and communication skills. I have also experienced first hand the importance of cross-cultural communication skills in a global business setting as well as differences between how business is conducted in Japan versus the United States. These experiences have been invaluable to me in preparation for my future career goals.
