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 intern testimonials on our new blog and website.
The following testimonial is from a 21 year old former intern in Beijing named Anna.
My name is Anna and i have been in Beijing on summer 2011. I did my internship with a travel agency as a translator and taught Russian and English languages. Working in the office was a bit boring for me and made me realize that I need more action at work. Teaching was different. I enjoyed every second of my lessons. I had an opportunity to share my knowledge with people and be useful for them. What a nice feeling! Although I'm not gonna be a teacher in the future, this kind of working experience made me more confident and stress-resistant.
Other good point is Frontiers Language School - the partner of Get in2 China. I took private Chinese language lessons there and I'm absolutely satisfied with it's quality. When I came back to Russia I have become the best student in my class and got the highest mark in final Chinese language exam. I always recommend this school to my friends. Students there are welcomed to share their problems and wishes with Frontiers staff, I became close friend with my honey teacher. We still keep in touch.
Exploring new culture, I found out that we have a lot in common with Chinese people. They are sweet, friendly and very deep, I feel myself comfortable with them. I fall in love with Beijing! This is a right place for my career, this is an amazing historical city, this is a place where I left my heart...
I'M SURE ONE DAY I WILL BE BACK TO BEIJING!!! I had so much fun there! I'm really grateful to Getin2China team with the help of who my dreams come true!
