Learn about Cocone’s internship program! An interview with an experienced intern!
My name is Sake, a recruitment and public relations intern at Cocone Corporation.
Suddenly, do you know what interns do?
Although you often hear the term ” internship ” when you are looking for a job,
Many people may not have a clear idea of what they are actually doing.
I looked up what an internship was in the first place, and…
>An internship is a work experience in which students actually work or visit companies in which they are interested. The purpose is to deepen students’ understanding of the nature of work and working through experience of actual work and the working environment. Internships are beneficial for both students and companies, and the number of companies accepting internship programs is increasing. In many cases, universities also recommend internships.Kurihakunabi 2024 HP [ What is an internship? (Taken from ] What is an internship, what does it mean, and how do I apply?)
>Internships can range from day-long to long-term, lasting several months or even years. While most internships are usually done during spring break or summer vacation at universities, long-term internships are sometimes done on weekdays by university students in academic years when they have fewer classes. Internship experience can be advantageous for job hunting, and further experience can lead to personal growth.
I completely understand, though,
I think this may be a little difficult for our readers.
Above all, seeing is believing.
The best way to find out about these things is to talk to someone who has experienced an internship!
So, for those who have interned in the past and plan to work at Cocone as a full-time employee this spring,
I have been asked to speak with you about the internship at Cocone!
Of course, if you are considering an internship at Cocone,
This is a must-see for those who want to learn more about internships.
If you would like, please stay with us until the end.
By the way, I’m also a highly acclaimed intern.
I could tell you about my own internship if I wanted to…
I’ll tell you all what I’m doing, and the concept of a Coconnex internship.
I’ll leave it for another time as it seems to be buggy.
2. interviews with interns
So we have interviewed this person.
Position: Culture Promotion Team, Development Department Favorite food: sea urchin
Sake ” It’s chic with sea urchins (?). Are you from Hokkaido or something? Are you from Hokkaido or something?”
Nagaki ” No, I’m from Kanagawa…I only have shirasu.”
Sake ” Shirasu
With thoughts of Shirasu in mind, the interview is about to begin.
Q1: I heard that you joined the company as a full-time employee after experiencing an internship. How long were you an intern?
To begin with, there are two types of internships at Cocone: one is a two-week short-term internship that is part of the recruitment flow for new graduates. The first is a 2-week short-term internship that is part of the hiring process for new graduates, which lasts about 2 weeks after the interview and web test, and most people do this. I did one of those short-term internships for an engineering hire, and after that I had a final interview and received a job offer.”
I had done a short-term internship and received a job offer. I had received a job offer as a short-term intern, but I wanted to learn more about Cocone before joining the company, and since I had nothing to do but graduate research for a year before joining the company, I thought it would be a good opportunity and asked CTO Lee Hongki and VPoE Takayama if I could intern at Cocone for a year. I approached Mr. Lee, the CTO, and Mr. Takayama, the VPoE, and asked them if I would like to intern at Cocone for a year.
I understand that after you were hired as an intern for two weeks, you did not graduate from the university and join the company, but rather volunteered to start an internship. So you are currently in the internship period, and you will officially become an employee after graduation next month, is that correct?
I am free now that I have finished my graduate studies. I’m done with my graduate studies and I’m free.
Q2. How did you start your internship?
I started job hunting gradually in the winter of my junior year of college, but I was not interested in the app industry at that time. I only knew about Pokecolo’s ” Pokecolo ” service, but I had no idea about the company itself. But as I did more research, the name ” Cocone ” caught my eye, and I became interested when I learned that it was the most popular dress-up app, and I applied for an internship.
‘So you weren’t interested in app services to begin with!’
I liked entertainment services myself, but I didn’t think of it as a job. My major was not in the field of creating entertainment services, but rather in the field of information technology, such as creating an attendance management application. However, I did make a game in one of my classes, and I enjoyed making entertainment services.”
Q3. What kind of internship did you have?
Short-term interns program using resources such as item data and animations used in actual applications such as ” Pokecolo. In my case, we were asked to create a login function and a bulletin board function. I used Unity software to create them, and it was quite difficult.
I started the long-term internship last May, working two days a week, in my case full time from 9:30 to 18:30. I’ve had a lot of experience, I’ve been the editor-in-chief of the tech blog*, I’ve worked on preparing for the monthly development sharing meetings, and I’ve prepared for a talk called TechTalk, which is given in the development department.”
*What is the Tech Blog? A blog run by Cocone’s engineering team, featuring many articles by engineers for engineers. For more information → https://engineering.cocone.io/blog/
Were there any challenges?”
I had to do a lot of writing when I was editor-in-chief, but I hadn’t done much of it, so the text editing process was difficult. Also, I had to make all the thumbnails and stuff for the tech blog, so that was a lot of design learning.”
Q4. Please tell us about any changes you have made as an intern.
When I was shown the source code of the actual application during my internship, I realized that there was a huge gap between my current skills andwhat was required of me, and I ” “This is not good if I don’t study for a year. Through my internship experience, I think my appetite for technology has increased.
Did you find anything about your first experience as an intern that was different from what you had in mind?”
It was almost the same. I thought everyone would be more focused on their own work and cold, but that wasn’t the case. Surprisingly, everyone was very warm, and they made small talk with me.”
Q5. Were you able to balance your studies?
The short-term internship was during spring break, and the long-term internship I am currently doing was during my graduation research period, so I had few classes, so I didn’t have too many problems. However, I was very busy at the end of my graduation research. I interned at Cocone for two days, worked part-time at another place on Saturdays and Sundays, and had to do my graduation research with only three days left. But other than that, I think I did relatively well.
Q6. When did you decide to work for Cocone as a full-time employee? Also, please tell us why you decided to do so.
By the time I applied for the job, I had a strong desire to join Cocone because I wanted to work for a company that offered a service that was at the top of its field. Cocone is the top company in the dress-up application genre, so it fulfills that requirement, and the service it provides is also very cute. I myself like cute things, so I felt that I was a good match for them. Also, the mentors I had during my internship were very responsive, and I felt that if I asked questions at this company, they would get back to me and I would be able to grow.
I see. By the way, what exactly do you mean when you say you like cute things?”
I actually work part-time at a theme park on weekends. I’ve loved the characters and cute things at the theme parks since I was a little girl, and I think I have a connection with Cocone in that way…”
Sake: “I don’t think this is the place to delve into this,
By the way, what do you do at your part-time job?”
We row a boat without any engine motors by human power. It weighs about two tons…”
I was like, “You’re rowing that? That looks like you’re building up a lot of muscle.”
People are going to be talking about having a muscular development department member…”
Laughs. It certainly gives you some skill.”
Q7. What do you think is the appeal of Cocone?
Nagaki: “I think the appeal of Cocone is that it offers many popular services in the CCP genre. We are also working on the metaverse so that people can experience it in a wider range of places.
From an engineer’s point of view, I liked the fact that the company provides a comfortable working environment for engineers, such as supplying keyboards as well as computer monitors.
Also, everyone at Cocone is nice, and there are people who care and take care of me, and I appreciate that.”
Q8. Future goals
Nagaki: “When I was a student, I was able to make whatever I wanted because I never saw anyone actually use what I made, but now that I’m joining the company next month, there are customers ahead of me, so I want to work hard to make things that customers will be happy with, not only in terms of my technical skills, but also in terms of how I can make them enjoy themselves. I want to do my best to always think about what I can do to make the customer happy.
Q9. Any last words?
Nagaki: “It is a rare opportunity to use corporate-level resources, and I think it will be a good experience for me. I also think that if I can get to know Cocone better through this experience, I will be able to convey the appeal of Cocone even better, so please apply!
This concludes the interview. How was everyone?
