Interns from overseas usually stay with us from two months to half a year. Homelands include the United States, Germany, France, Macedonia, Greece, China, India, . Many of them come to Ricoh using internship programs provided by their universities, and receive credits as part of the curriculum. Also, we accept students via IAESTE (The International Association for the Exchange of Students for Technical Experience) program.
Those interns achieve better results than we expect, making use of their university specialties. All gain productive experience from the training they join in an actual project inside a foreign enterprise, while enjoying life in Japan. We are encouraged when we receive reports from intern students after their return that say "Training at the Software R&D Center revealed points lacking in my technology and knowledge, so I have already registered for a class related to these points in the coming semester."
