Familiarity with the Latest AC Technology of the
Global No. 1 Company
The Daikin internship allowed me to discover the possibilities at Daikin, a multinational company that continues to grow even now while bringing innovation to the global HVAC industry through sophisticated heating and cooling systems. For someone like me who studied mechanical engineering in India, I was very fascinated by the idea of having a chance to become familiar with the latest technology in Japan. It was great to actually participate and learn starting from the basics on how the latest air conditioning technologies are designed, tested, and manufactured. I am thankful to Daikin for giving me such a valuable opportunity to learn things not taught in a university. Not only did I gain technical knowledge, but I also gained insight into Japanese culture and the qualities that make Japan one of the most advanced nations in the world.
Practical Experience in the Reality beyond
The Daikin internship confronted me with the reality of the vast knowledge beyond university courses, and I soon discovered in the Daikin product development department that just applying the knowledge acquired in university is a great challenge. Through this type of challenge, I feel that I acquired a sense of responsibility for work, greater humility, and personal growth. I began the internship with no Japanese ability and only afterward became interested in learning it. Now after studying it, I feel a sense of pride in how much Japanese I have learned and believe that thinking in Japanese, which is a third language for me, makes me organize my thoughts more and helps me make better decisions.
Personally Experiencing the Awe-Inspiring Daikin

Opportunities for Those with a Global Mindset
I first heard about the company when I attended the information seminar Daikin delivered when it came to my campus to recruit. That’s where I learned that Daikin was a Japanese company with a team of highly qualified professionals. I also learned that it was the foremost leading company in the global air conditioning industry and was expanding worldwide in a variety of business fields. I could easily see that Daikin was the company for those with a global mindset. It was then I knew that I would like to be a member of Daikin, and I applied for an internship.
Observing the Driving Force of an Ever Growing
The internship was a great learning experience. The work environment was conducive to sharing ideas and grasping new concepts from the air conditioning industry, which I had never been exposed to. Each day was full of new and interesting tasks. Sometimes I would be called upon to report results to Daikin staff employees, and they would offer me their candid feedback, which further kindled my desire. I realized that these types of informal discussions serve to circulate ideas within the Daikin Group and are the driving force of Daikin. Under the mentoring of my supervisor, I was assigned very challenging tasks that required me to be fully focused at all times and approach business from a global context. In time I was given responsibilities to execute on my own in which I would communicate with employees from different regions of the world. From this, I began to understand the Daikin corporate culture and the “Daikin Way,” which forms the basis of that culture, and how these principles permeate to every corner of the global Daikin Group.
Expanding Prospects for Your Career
For this internship, I became acquainted with various aspects of Daikin and was given many opportunities to learn. For this reason, I believe an internship at Daikin provides great insight into global business. Daikin gives you opportunities to promote new ideas while exchanging opinions with people of diverse backgrounds through global projects. Before applying, my intuition told me that a program such as this could be a great boost to a global career. After experiencing it, that instinct has turned to firm conviction. When reflecting on my experience, I think that the Daikin internship was a unique opportunity to raise and expand the prospects for my own career.
