ExxonMobil – Carlos Torres

I worked on a project that revolved around process and tool improvements within their head counting systems. I thought after leaving Italy everything I learned and experienced would soon become a part of my past, especially since the field I’m studying is relatively technical, but I quickly realized this is not the case. Although my Italian is no longer as strong as it was when I was in Bologna, the culture and the friends I made will forever be a part of my life. One of the most important things I learned while abroad was how to be accepting and aware of other cultures. During my internship I interacted with people from around the world on a daily basis, and studying in Bologna helped me understand how and why people do things differently. In a world that is continually becoming more unified, the opportunity to be a part of the BCSP was definitely one of the best decisions of my life.”
