China Intern Testimonial: Hira Iqbal

HiraTwenty-four year old Hira  hails from Mississauga, Canada and graduated from Seneca College of Applied Arts and Technology majoring in Business Administration, Human Resources. She will be interning at a Shanghai electronic technology company and in charge of maintaining  good  relations  with  customers,  working  with  the  team  to  develop  new  markets, negotiating pricing with customers, etc. Hira hopes this Shanghai internship will give her solid work experience by working in the real world as well as provide her with professional references and networking contacts. In China, it's all about the contacts and guanxi!Hira was drawn to do an internship in China after reading about China's booming economy and the opportunities available in China. Some people say that China is one of the few places hiring in today's tough economic environment. Hira also has some family members who do business in China which allowed her to better understand what living and working in China would be like.Hira told us, "I came across Gi2C through an expo I visited a year ago and thought this could get me one step closer to experiencing the Chinese culture and  one of the biggest economic powers in the world. Gi2C offers a good service that gives interns the freedom to discover China on their own and allows them to tailor their experience."

Hira said her family  was very supportive of her decision, although slightly  nervous about her move China. Yet they told her it was a good opportunity and a once in a life time experience. Hira said, "When I told my friends they were jealous and wished they could go to! I am obviously going to miss my family and friends and since it's winter in Canada, I am going to miss my car. It is so convenient to drive everywhere in this cold weather."

Don't worry, Hira, the metro in Shanghai is very convenient to use and quite warm in the winter!
