FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
FUSIA Communications, Inc. held its 2009 CCIP Orientation on Monday, May 26, 2009 to help its students prepare for their internships. The orientation took place at the Wingate Hotel, and was well attended by many student interns from participating universities as well as many supervisors from the program's participating companies.
The CCIP Orientation aimed to resolve the difficulties arising from cultural displacement that students would have to deal with. Issues with basic needs such as accommodation, transportation and food were also covered.
Harry Dorviler, the founder and President of Harry Nurses Registry, Inc., gave students a warm welcome and shared significant insights into the expectations of supervisors as well as the workplace etiquette that students should hold themselves to. He also stressed the importance of cultural sensitivity and understanding in the ever-increasingly global economy.
"It really helps hearing from a supervisor for the first time", said Siu On Wong, a Hong Kong Polytechnic University student interning at Harry Nurses Registry, Inc. "At least I now have a better idea on not only what to expect from my internship but also what is expected from me as an intern. It really helps put me on firmer ground and I don't feel as lost and nervous as I originally did."
Refreshments were served afterwards giving students the opportunity to meet one another face-to-face and mingle with the participating supervisors. Students inquired about their job scopes and responsibilities from the supervisors present and got acquainted with the other students of the program as well.
FUSIA extends its thanks to participating students and supervisors: Harry Dorviler (Harry Nurses Registry, Inc.), Alex Dong (Health Monitor Network), Belinda Siu (Charming Holidays), Callie Kwek (SCO Family of Service), and Han Jun Li and Lily Guo (Han Jun Li Attorney at Law) who took time off from busy schedule and attended the orientation. It also wishes its student interns an enjoyable and enriching internship experience ahead.
The Session B orientation will take place on July 12. We wish the best of luck to all the student interns who have yet to arrive and to all future students.
