In line with this, on March 19, Cho left for Silicon Valley in California, United States—the holy land of global start-ups. As one of the eight students selected from universities nationwide for the internship program, Cho will work as an intern for six months until the end of August at “Physiocue,” a four-year-old start-up company in the field of health care. Those selected for the program can gain a semester’s worth of credits, that is, about 18 credits, under their major, with the internship. Thus, they will not be delayed from graduating because of the internship, and those who excellently complete the internship can be offered full-time jobs.
