      Unbelievable, Unforgettable Experiences

      Hello, I am Sanghun Lee and I did an internship at Continental Automotive in the Communications department in my home country Korea. I was a 2nd ContiStar which is the name of the intern program of Continental Korea. I supported internal & external communications and operated marketing & events.

      I was able to do many different tasks at Continental. I worked in a team to organize and run workshops, sports day and the so called TechDay. I would like to share some of my best stories I experienced while working at Continental.

      The first story is about the sports day. Continental Automotive Korea holds a sports day annually. In this year, the department responsible for organizing the sports day was Vehicle dynamics and Hydraulic Brake Systems (VED/HBS). Even though another team was realizing the event, I proposed to participate and support the team. They wanted to find a moderator for the day so I applied. I like to present in front of crowds and comment. Actually, I would like to be a soccer commentator so I broadcasted soccer matches at my own channel and even uploaded soccer contents on my YouTube channel.

      We made plans, we arranged a well thought through program and split the participants into four teams. Then I wrote a script of what I would say and practiced at home. As the CEO of Continental Korea and about 100 employees would participate it, I didn’t want to mess up.

      At the sports day, I didn’t expect this atmosphere. So many workers laughed loudly at my comments. For example, when people are playing basketball with our CEO, Robert Lee, I said “ If you block his shoot, then you could be fired, so better be careful now ;)”.

      After the event, I was approached by many people to me to shake hands to admire my effort as a moderator, memorized my name and complimented me. I didn’t realize it at the moment, but I was told my presence had a great impact on the success of this event. I really appreciate it.

       

      The second story is about my talent. After TechDay, we had a dinner meeting with the  management, including our CEO. To be honest, I was very honoured to be invited, because we cannot meet the CEO and have a dinner meeting frequently if we are an intern or on a junior level. But in had the great opportunity to even work with them.

      At the dinner meeting, my co-worker encouraged me to show of my talent. I can imitate others very well. Some of my colleagues knew. So I did my best imitation of some of the managers and entertained the association greatly. Many people had a good laugh and the overall atmosphere was great. Because of it, I think many people remembered me.

      At Continental, I had really interesting and amazing experiences. These memories are to me unbelievable, untouchable and unforgettable. I hope I will have the chance in the future to return to Continental as an employee and make more great memories with my colleagues.
