Intern Testimonial: Julia Nikolaychuk

The eurozone crisis is taking its toll on that continent’s population, and some like Julia Nikolaychuk are looking to China for opportunities.

Julia Nikolaychuk's Getin2China internship program in China

“Europe is facing a crisis and unemployment rates are rising high,” says 21-year-old Julia, from the Ukraine. “It is outrageous that with having a higher education and speaking four languages fluently finding a job is still a challenge. An internship in China helps me increase my chances of finding a well-paid job, gain knowledge about international trade, establish business relations with experienced people and learn another language.”

Julia will do her China internship program at the Shanghai Metal Corporation, a leading manufacturer of metal products, building materials, shipping containers and machinery. Her responsibilities as a trading assistant will include the following:

• Ensure sales targets are met

• Promote the marketing/sales of the company’s products and services to international partners

• Develop sales and marketing strategies

• Train local sales and marketing staff in foreign markets

• Provide timely feedback to top management

• Provide bids and quotations

• Pursue business development and negotiations

Internships in China have become the new way to secure back-door jobs in the country. Sixty-nine percent of foreigners who come to China stay in China.

It’s that addictive.

China is the “fastest growing economy and there are plenty of possibilities for students with Chinese MNC’s (multi-national corporations),” says Julia. “I am interested in experiencing the East and participating in dynamic business making.”

She adds the possibilities of travel and experiencing an ancient civilization were other luring reasons to come.

Julia speaks four other languages and she’s hoping to add Mandarin to her repertoire. “I am extremely anxious to start Mandarin courses. I find Chinese interesting and useful for the future.”

At Gi2C, we offer Mandarin Chinese language program to help you navigate your way around ShanghaiBeijing or elsewhere. Best of all, we base our teaching schedule around your work schedule, so you don’t lose out on valuable hours at your host company.

When Julia mentioned China as a possibility for an internship, her parents “looked up the frequency of the earthquakes in Asia,” she says, but overall her family has been wonderfully supportive.

“No one was so much surprised as super exited for me. My parents are proud of me going and are expecting some Chinese souvenirs. My brother said that I am just lucky not to be married already!”

She adds, “It is a beginning of a new chapter in my life.”

It sure is. Thanks, Julia. We look forward to writing more about your journey in China!
