Testimonial:Yarinette Ero (Georgia, USA)

As a leading provider of internship placements, Get in2 China takes great pride in connecting students and graduates from all over the world with valuable work and learning experiences in some of China’s most attractive industries.  Over the past five years we have placed more than 1,000 interns across a wide range of positions in Beijing and Shanghai.


We continually tell our interns that to be successful in their internship placement, they must approach their position with an open-mind and a willingness to learn. In addition, we cannot stress enough the importance of proactively developing your personal and professional network during your time in China.

This advice is featured a previous post titled, Intern Advice: 7 Tips For A Successful Internship In China.

At Get in2 China, we also understand that it is important to practice what you preach. As such, we have made it a priority to reach out to individuals who have successfully completed their internship placement in an effort to not only learn from their experience, but also to bolster our personal and professional relationships with former interns.

For our own benefit - and also for the benefit of all of you potential interns - we will begin to periodically post previous intern testimonials on our new blog and website.

The following testimonial is from Yarinette Ero, a digital media intern from Georgia, USA.
