Testimonial: Claudia Fernandez

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.

Below we hear from Claudia Fernandez, an intern with a start-up travel company in Beijing, China.

I have been working as a full-time marketing intern at the tourism agency in Beijing from the 23.07.2012 until the 17.08.2012, so, in total four weeks.

Generally, the company makes a good impression and the tasks I have been given were interesting and diverse. As part of my tasks I translated a text, maintained the company’s web page on social networking sites, researched potential partners and contacted them by email and I also started to write the new blog for the company. Also, the working atmosphere is friendly and comfortable.

However, working full-time, I did not have nearly enough tasks to fill the time and even if I did some of the research it has actually not been used as my boss did not seem to have a clear line of what he wants to do. I also did not get a proper introduction into my job and it was more looking for something to do as being giving something clear or precise. So, if at all I would have preferred to rather only work part-time as you do get some interesting insights but as there are not enough tasks to do most of the time the internship was quite boring.
