Today, I would like to talk about a big company that I would like to work in. Last year, I had a chance to do an internship in Vincom for 3 months, and it is my dream workplace where I want to apply for a job when I graduate.
The Vingroup, as you know, is one of the biggest corporations involved in many different key fields, not only in Vietnam but also in other countries all over the world. Vincom, the real estate company, is supposed to be the most important sector contributing to the success of the Vingroup. They have taken over a lot of well-known resorts, luxury villas and apartment buildings around Vietnam, incorporating a huge range of additional facilities.
My major involves the property business, so I decided to do my internship there. It is an extremely big company with dynamic and loyal staff, and a highly professional working style as well. They formulate their business strategy clearly and try to reach the targets which they have set. Their staff receive excellent compensation and benefits packages.
It was a valuable chance for me to broaden my own knowledge not only in my major but also in many other fields. It enhanced my soft skills and allowed me to enlarge my social network. Therefore, I will try my best to become an employee in Vincom in the near future.
