PROGRAMME BOOKLET AIESEC RMIT Vietnam | 2014 Magical pocket guide for young people to step up their career

AIESEC is the global youth network impacting the world through leadership development experiences. Founded in 1948, AIESEC is currently present in 124 countries and territories with more than 86,000 members. AIESEC in Vietnam was established in 2006. We have more than 450 active members present in 20 top universities of Vietnam and over 2100 alumni working in leading local and multinational companies. What We Envision: Peace and fulfilment of humankind’s potential. We believe that this vision can be implemented through exchange programs, meaning that by going exchange, we can promote peace and develop leadership in each individual. AIESEC is running 3 main exchange programs: The Global Talent programme gives students and recent graduates the chance to gain valuable international working experience. It is not about visiting developed countries but is more about developing oneself through a series of challenging opportunities. Duration of Global Talent internship varies from 3 – 18 months. Students can choose to go exchange in any country in AIESEC network as long as there are internships available there and their profiles can meet with internship’s criteria. This booklet would provide all details about Global Talent Program (What, Why, Who, and When), testimonials from returnee, and some examples of real internship opportunities. The Global Citizen Programme creates the most intense learning environment by enabling young adults to live and work abroad in projects centered around global and local social issues (Education, Environment, Poverty ,Human Rights, Health, Cultural Understanding, and many more), as the same time nurture passions and self-development. Through Global Citizen programme, young people will gain a unique combination of multi-cultural, social and entrepreneurial exposure during formative years of their life. GCP duration varies from 6-8 weeks. Salary is usually not provided. Accommodation, food and other living expenses will be supported depending on projects. The Ingoing Global Community Development Programme: As GCP is the programs that send students abroad for voluntary projects, RMIT iGCDP creates projects for foreigners interns to come to Vietnam and work on AIESEC RMIT's projects. Current projects of iGCDP are Global Passport, in which interns from American Latin nations will come to RMIT and Teach Spanish for RMIT students, and Summer Camp - MIP (Mission I'm Possible), in which intern would come and work on raising awareness campaigns for high school students.

“I start to build my future career with the very first stones from Global Talent programme” In the first week, I only stayed at International Affairs office

SHARING My exchange story

and had some short talks with one or two people. They helped me to understand the company and shared with me many things about living and travelling in Nagoya. From the second week, I went out with people in Sales department. The job of staff in Sales department is to meet customers and negotiate about the chemical products of Tsuchiya. Their main customer is Toyota and that’s the great reason why I had a wonderful internship. I had the chance to visit so many museums as well as so many plants of Toyota. Thanks to this internship, I gazed with my own eyes the incredible manufacturing process of Toyota, with lots of automatic robots. Besides, I also viewed many newest model cars of this famous group and even sat on a modern model, which is going to be used in the future. That’s about Toyota and of course, Tsuchiya didn’t connect me to only Toyota. The customers of Tsuchiya are other big groups such as Denso, Nissan, Brother, Canon etc. The more customers Tsuchiya have, the more museums, companies, factories… you can visit. When I was small, I had a dream to visit Japan and thanks to this internship, my dream already came true. Japanese are truly hospitable and amiable, to the point my eyes often went teary receiving their kindness. Vu Thu Trang Foreign Trade University Hanoi
