Shrey is interning in China in the consulting industry for a firm that focuses on computer software solutions. He tells us that New Delhi is a very modern city yet it is also rich in tradition and wonderful ancient buildings. Although Shrey is only in his early twenties, he has already traveled all over Europe as well as Thailand. He received his MBA in the U.K. and has a strong interest in business.
During his time in China, Shrey will be helping his company strategize and market their products in innovative ways. He will also help to enhance and optimize the company’s CRM (customer relationship management) system. Before the internship is over, Shrey hopes to acquire a deep understanding of how to develop marketing strategies and market products to other businesses (B2B marketing). He also wants to sharpen up his presentation and communication skills and learn more about Chinese businesses and the Chinese market. Speaking of China, why did he decide to intern here? He came because China is one of the biggest economies in the world and there are plenty of opportunities to work here. Also, he wanted to learn more about the Chinese way of doing business and their unique culture. Shrey told us, “I like China, its people and their culture and I have a lot of Chinese friends. I was always fascinated to go and work in China so I made up my mind a year back that I would do so. I started to learn about Chinese people and understand Chinese culture and made a network of Chinese friends during my time in the UK.”
Shrey chose Gi2C because “it is a good platform to provide me with an opportunity to work in China. It’s like a key to enter into China and helps me to establish a base which I would not have been able to do successfully without Gi2C’s help.” Shrey’s father has been to China many times and although supportive of his son’s decision to work in China, was concerned about the difficulty of living in such large cities where a different language in required. This is a big concern for many of our interns but that’s where Gi2C can help and support you. Any of our interns can contact us with any problems you might have during your internship. If you have any other concerns before starting your China adventure just like Shrey started his, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
