Being a university student means being open to various opportunities. This may also include developing professionalism through internships. To grant its students of such chances, Hanyang University’s Center for Academic Placement Support offers internships from smaller firms such as startups to major conglomerates through the Hanyang Work Experience Program (HY-WEP). Choi Jae-ran (Department of Industrial Engineering, 4th year) is one of the numerous students who has seized the opportunity. 
 

Choi Jae-ran (Department of Industrial Engineering, 4th year) completed her HY-WEP experience with EPIKAR in both the United States and South Korea from March to August of 2017 and participated in the National Research Foundation of Korea Work Experience Contest in November, 2018.
 

Choi’s internship experience is a special one as she was able to work in the United States with the company called EPIKAR, a startup company that develops innovative mobility technology to alleviate efficiency. After her invaluable experience from March to August of 2017, Choi received the first prize in November of 2018, representing Hanyang University at the National Research Foundation of Korea: Work Experience Contest with the presentation topic, “Find My Roadmap.” Choi talked about her experience of working with EPIKAR and what she gained from the overseas internship through HY-WEP.

During her internship period, Choi was responsible for planning out “infotainment” (a combination of the words: “information” and “entertainment”) projects on automobiles’ onboard diagnostics analysis dashboard and control panels. She was able to attend the Michigan Show Car Project and planned and designed the show car’s user interface dashboard. As a result, Choi learned about the current automobile industry and market in depth. Along with cooperating and working with designers, these experiences have helped her develop work professionalism. After the internship, Choi gained an avid interest in the field of UX (user experience design) and plans on improving the related skills.

When asked what some of the benefits of HY-WEP are, Choi answered, “in the majority of cases, HY-WEP is related to startups, so the task and role you receive may be quite diverse. This enables interns to experience a broad range of work which will surely be helpful in the long run.” In addition, Choi advised those who are applying to emphasize the importance of setting the goal straight away as well as what can be achieved from the internship in the self-introductory paper.
 

For the upcoming HY-WEP, the Center for Academic Placement Support is offering an eight-week internship opportunity for Hanyang University students who have completed more than four semesters. The first round of the application period is to end on November 30th, 2018, and the additional application period will take part in December. More information can be found on the HY-WEP website.
