In mid-July, Get in2 China Group cut the ribbon and officially opened the doors of our new Shanghai office. Over the past couple of years, we have been growing our contacts and business network in China's financial center, working hard to prepare for this moment.
As not only China's financial capital, but also a global hub of business and commerce, Shanghai offers a wealth of meaningful internship opportunities for hard working students and graduates.
If Shanghai's Pudong Skyline isn't a testament to progress and the result of ambition, we don't know what is!
The new office is located in Shanghai's Pudong District, a short walk from the Longyang Road Metro Station. Longyang is known for being the arrival point of the famously fast mag-lev train that shuttles to and from the Pudong Airport. With a top operational speed of 431 kilometers per hour, the magnetic levitation train travels faster than any Formula 1 car.
Heading up our Shanghai operation is one of Get in2 China's most experienced and dedicated team members, Jean Zhang. Prior to relocating to Shanghai, Jean worked in Beijing as Get in2 China's Internship Program Manager.
When asked about the opening of the Shanghai branch, Jean seemed tremendously enthusiastic about the availability of quality internships, openness and attitude of Shanghai as a city, and the overall growth potential of the market. Jean remarked:
"I am very excited about the opening of the Shanghai office. This is the first branch of Get in2 China to open outside of Beijing but I know that in the future there will be other offices in China as well as abroad. There is not a better place to start than Shanghai. For interns, the city is full of opportunities! Shanghai is an incredible city, it is the most open city in all of China and certainly the most welcoming and accessible to foreigners. Shanghai is truly one of the world's great global cities, and I hope that Get in2 China will help create a bridge from East to West, allowing more foreigners to see what Shanghai has to offer."
Shanghai in 1990 vs. Shanghai in 2010
As a city, Shanghai symbolizes ambition, growth, and prosperity. That is exactly what we see when we look up at the city lights filling the night sky - endless opportunity.
Now, we want to know what you will see...
