My traineeship was worthwhile to a fairly large extent. However, mine was a volunteer development traineeship and so my answer is quite different in nature to that which you're likely to receive from a management trainee. You can probably recall, I worked at TEGV the educational NGO.

The traineeship was quite well organized. Yet I received little information prior to my arrival about what I'd be doing, where, how and whether I'd need to prepare. The work was enjoyable, the people very hospitable yet the actual work was a little unstructured and I was certainly not given much opportunity to truly benefit from the experience by working with responsibilities etc. But as a Development traineeship it went fairly well.

From an accommodation point of view it was very good. My host family was very generous and hospitable, yet alarm was raised when it was revealed that AIESEC had not contract with the family protecting the trainee.

I'm not sure this answers as you would like, please let me know.

And with regards to the Taiwanese? Lovely people! I thoroughly enjoyed
getting to know them and spending time with them ;-). Maybe a little shy at
times, yet charming all the same. Friendly and kind too. Some are great at
ping pong as well!

To your first question, I enjoyed my traineeship in Turkey generally. As you
know, our project by itself is worthwhile; however, it was not well organized
enough, which lead to a lot of time wasted. Second question, I like to be with you guys from Taiwan, you’re sincere, active, and very easy to get along with. I've met some people from Taiwan whose idea about China was not true, and It's a pity we knew too little about each other before.

It's a very good news that there will be a book which is about turkey, your trainee in Turkey. All of the Taiwanese trainees in turkey is very cheerful and emphatic and do their best in their work. You can speak them when ever you want. Taiwan is a bit different culture from us, although the differences every people can communicate Taiwanese trainee and also we learn some different knowledge from you, taste some different food. The best benefit of aiesec is getting world closer. In anatolia 2006 congress I have chance to meet more taiwainese trainee so I'm very pleased :) we all want to see all of you again in Turkey and also see new trainees from taiwan :)

I would like to write something about AIESEC.

AIESEC is a platform for young people.... :P Of course I wont tell them...It is true AIESEC is really good platform if you would like to develop yourself. But it isn’t all you can find lot of friends around of world.

For example at the summer Term Rick and Elmo from Taiwan were our guests. They came to AIESEC Istanbul for traineeship and they visited our LC also because we are close to Istanbul. It was so different feeling for us to see in front of us the person who was talking with you on MSN one month before: P

So we learned that Taiwan`s culture, traditions and what kind a great people they are...Thank you Rick and Elmo for your gifts. One of Your tea glasses is OGX glass now :) and we are drinking green tea with the machine you brought us: D So you can understand that AIESEC is really great platform. And not only develop yourself.

Thank you~ you are really Great Guy...

其实在决定去申请成为AIESEC SN之前,对于AIESEC一直是有点抵触的情绪的。因为有个朋友在大一的时候就进入了AIESEC,并且一直坚持到成为VP,(就是Amy啦,你也认识的呀)但是因为一直只看到她的忙碌,所以让我这种准备享受大学生活的人对它敬谢不敏。

一直到06年的冬天,也是因为她,让我有机会亲自认识了AIESEC这个与众不同的组织。她一再persuade我去申请那次SN,直到我第一次参加AIESEC的招新活动,我才了解到为什么AIESEC可以让她付出那么多热情与时间。然后经过一系列的interview,我有机会开始了我的土耳其之旅了。

从来没有想过自己走出亚洲第一个到达的国家会是土耳其,之前对于土耳其的认知也就停留在土耳其烤肉,安卡拉羊和土耳其地毯上。:)对于像Istanbul这样的城市也只是停留在知道的阶段而已,更不要说我要待上两个月的Bursa了。为了为期两个月在Bursa的实习,之前做了好多准备工作来了解当地的风土民情,但是所以的一切直到我踏上了土耳其的土地才让我有了真实感。

我们的trainingship是在我们到达Bursa之后的一个星期开始的。我们的project被称为"Chinese
Opportunity",旨在于向当地的商人介绍中国大陆市场,着重于在土耳其同样发达的纺织业,另外还涉及到了相关的法律政策,中国的文化等等。土耳其对于我们是个迷,同样的,中国对于他们来说也是个迷。不光是对于土耳其人是这样,很多在当地认识的欧美的trainee也不了解中国,这让我们觉得很惊讶!!这也让我们感觉到自己这次的工作是多么的有意义。

其实这次的工作我不光是扮演着一个将资讯传递给当地人的角色,同时自己也在这个过程中更完善的认识中国,才感受到原来自己对于中国的认识还这么少。通过工作,我们也在充实着自己。

两个月之后我离开了土耳其,当我回到上海的时候我仍然不能忘记在土耳其的日子,所以当我在上海看到卖土耳其冰激凌的土耳其人时,那种亲切的感觉让我忍不住的上前攀谈,用生涩的土耳其语向他们表达我对土耳其的热爱。另外,最让我觉得这个经历与众不同的是我能认识许许多多来做不通国家地区,说着不同语言,但是都因为AIESEC而来到土耳其的人,并成为朋友。说到这里就要来说说我认识的台湾人啦!

由于我们这个project的关系,所以一下子Bursa就多了五个来自中国大陆的女生,和我们差不多时间到达的还有两个台湾男生,Brian和Eric,以及一个台湾女生,Sally。我还记得第一天到AIESEC office的时候我们因为看到亚洲脸孔激动了一下,又听到同样的语言更是觉得亲切。其实撇开那些政治问题不谈(AIESEC中也不牵扯政治问题),我是很喜欢台湾人的。

我觉得台湾人很亲切,很少让人有距离感,特别是在长时间的接触之后真的不觉得有什么敌对感,政治与我们的友谊没有任何的关系。尤其是土耳其的男生让我觉得都很细心,至少我认识的几个都是啦!台湾人很善于向别人介绍台湾,包括文化,商业以及整个地区各项领域的发展。我们经常会在一起交流一下自己的想法,然后谈谈文化的差异,到现在我们还一直保持着联络,这让我更加萌生了想到台湾看看的念头!!

因为AIESEC我有机会认识了土耳其,有了两个月精彩的土耳其生活,感受了当地的生活,认识了许多可爱的土耳其人!也是因为AIESEC让我有了好几个台湾的朋友,有了如此不同的友谊,而且我相信这段友谊也会一直持续下去!!

Spending an amazing month in AIESEC Istanbul as a CEEDer , which is a cultural exchange program for young people within this organization, meant for me not only unforgettable experience but it also helped me to break some prejudice about Turkey. Now I know that they are very hospitable nation, warmly treating their guests. In Turkey you cannot help having a feeling that the time passes simply very slow. Far away from the turmoil of every other European city, Istanbul gives you a perfect chance to take your time and enjoy their cultural wealth. When traveling in Europe, be sure your next stop will be Turkey!

不得不承认,土尔其带给我的不只是一个惊喜,还是一种侵入我心的甜蜜.太多的美好让我这个并不总是乐观的人不免更加笃信命运.太多的巧合,太多的故事,让土行从神秘变得亲切.当我带着帽子,混进清真寺的时刻,分明听到的是心灵纯净地磕叩.在冥想中回忆往事,走出大堂后的是真水无香般的意境.不同文化之间,已然在人类的宽容与好奇下变得缺少碰撞的尖锐,交融的情感让一群20岁的孩子们互相拥抱.在另一个国度里,我们愈加坦然,愈加博大.AIESEC的欢歌笑语是我们珍藏一生的感动.那些TEGV的孩子们,在安卡拉贫困的小天使们,快乐的在我们面前秀着眼花缭乱的舞姿,清澈的眼中闪着渴望的梦.临别时,红红的小嘴映着我的脸颊,还有那亲手为我做的礼物.

旅行,让我认识土耳其,也让我认识了台湾男孩们的魅力.且不说,Bursa”饕餮家宴”,台湾男孩的私房菜,让大陆女孩的味蕾得到满足.就说我这60多斤的大箱子,让他们着实辛苦了一路.在行进中,我了解着男孩们.也许是我的幸运,来自台湾的AIESECer们,各个都是优秀而又善良.感谢小夫在天桥下,奋劲扛包的勇气,感谢和我同名的可爱Ivy在安卡利亚的饭票,感谢Eric为我们不厌其烦的拍照,当然,最要感谢Rick和我一起旅行到底.

闺密由于演艺的原因经常去台湾,可能由于土国的原因,我竟有了十分亲切之感,经常与她谈论台湾的人和事,礼貌的台湾人,体贴的台湾男人,温柔的台湾女人,一切的一切在交流中变得更加清晰,,越发真实.于是,每日关注台湾时事成了我的习惯,动荡的政治报道让人心酸,不得不的,站在普通人的角度,我渴望统一,当风平浪静的和平不再是追求时,人类,还有什么可以骄傲!

It's AIESEC. The experience, the feeling, the communication. It's a great chance to know people around the world. It's chance to know Taiwan better. I really want to thank you the trainees from Taiwan who made me understand the Taiwanese culture and Taiwanese people better. Thank you for joining us Rick. It was an honor to host you in my house.
Cihad ERSIN Presindent of AIESEC Denizli-TURKEY


Among my great experiences of Traineeship in Turkey was that I met quite many Taiwanese friends! Being in Turkey was great in that it could offer me chances to meet all other trainees from all over the world through Aiesec. Especially Taiwanese were one of my favorites so that I am still so glad being there having enormous experiences there! Also, I remember at the International Congress you guys made me surprise in that you were perfectly ready for the participation especially for the international day, which was a great chance to introduce yourself. Hope this comment being helpful for you guys~!! ^-^
