◆Last Year's Participants voice
・The first 2 days of orientation as a group was really good as it helped us settle down into our new environment. Felt really at ease as a result.

・ I really appreciated how JR East took us to different areas of Japan. It felt very hands-on to be at the site itself and to look at the construction site from different points of view. 
JR-East’s internship felt like a dream! I miss it so much. I have learned so much from JR-East and am grateful for this experience.

・it was nice that we were able to share what each departments did at the presentation and this helped me to get more interested in JR's overall business, more than just my own department.
