A letter from a graduate of the apprentice program
I just wanted to take a moment to express how truly grateful I am for the fantastic opportunities that have been given me over the past 6 years. I remember 7 years ago watching the online sourcing tutorial videos PassageMaker produced and thinking how it would be a dream to work in international trade in China. And it was genuinely one of my happiest moment receiving the invitation to join the PassageMaker group is an intern. Joining the team was one of the best choices I ever made and a year later, after completing the training, I was handling live projects and supporting major brands. I learned a lot and I also made friendships that will last a lifetime. While I am moving on to the next phase of my career by heading off to graduate studies, I have to say that without the experiences gained in China with PassageMaker, I don’t think I would have made it into a top MBA program in the USA. So, thank you again for everything for being a teacher to being a friend and let me know if I can help out in the future. Of course I am happy to be a reference for any new interns interested in the program!
