Internship Placements: Sebastian Armstrong (Winchester, UK)




Sebastian Armstrong had only been in Beijing for just over 24 hours when he arrived at the Get in2 China office for his internship placement. The towering 21-year old from Winchester, UK was battling jet-lag, fatigue, and the general sense of confusion that accompanies all interns first few days in this chaotic city. Still, he looked ready to go. As a Masters Student pursuing an advanced degree in Maths from a little University called Cambridge ( you may have heard of it ), Sebastian's impressive credentials allowed him to participate in a highly focused technical internship in the Finance and Investment fields. When asked to describe his impression of Beijing in one word as we shuffled into an overcrowded subway car en route to meet with the company he would be placed in, Sebastian responded, " vibrant ." When asked what he ate for dinner last night - his first night...

Intern Updates: T'ai Chi at Ritan Park (Beijing)










Beijing is a city characterized by a somewhat constant state of confusion and contradiction. Living is Beijing , you often feel as if you are continuously straddling two different worlds. One world is a city undergoing full-throttle modernization, the other is still trying to honor the  foundation of the capital's past, one built on centuries of history and tradition. The swirling of the past, present, and future - that is what Beijing is about. And though you are able to take a world-class subway system to work and pick-up a Starbucks coffee on your way into the office, there are certain parts of life in Beijing that serve as a reminder that the city is a crucible of Chinese culture, and that even as much of the city transforms, certain traditions carry on. One of these notable customs is the practice of T'ai Chi . Head to one of Beijing's...

Internship Placement: PR/Marketing Internships in China





Career Opportunities Tailored For 'The Facebook Generation' Are you, like most of our generation, constantly connected? Do you find it difficult to pull yourself away from the Internet?

Intern Advice: 7 Tips For A Successful Internship In China



At our most recent Intern Orientation on June 7 , our Business Development Manager, Ben Cao, applauded new interns on having the courage and vision to choose China as their internship destination.  As the world's most populous nation and second largest economy - an economy which is still growing at rates which most developed nations could only dream of achieving - China presents a significant career building opportunity for those willing to put the time and effort into understanding the culture and learning the language. When looking to really succeed in an internship with a Chinese company , there are many more considerations than just simply showing up and doing good work.  And even though it may not always seem like it, your Chinese supervisor is paying attention to the details and constantly judging your performance. With this in mind, in addition to several years of working experience with HSBC Bank in...

Life in Beijing: 5 Must-Visit Restaurants For New Interns






As soon as new interns arrive in Beijing, they are itching to get a taste of what the city is all about.  One of the best ways to gain an understanding of local culture is to sample the wide variety of cuisine available in China's capital city. After getting interns sorted out at our internship orientation , one of the most common questions our new arrivals have is, "where should we eat?" In response, we have decided to compile this list of 5 Must-Visit Beijing Restaurants For New Interns. 1.) Da Dong Roast Duck Restaurant All Beijingers know that there is no meal in the city that screams "BEIJING" more than Beijing duck.  The city is flush with award-winning duck joints. Deciding which restaurant serves the "Ultimate Beijing Duck" is largely a matter of personal preference.  Some poultry purveyors prefer the layers of juicy fat found underneath the golden brown skin of...

Learning Mandarin Chinese with Gi2C: A Student's Perspective

No matter what anyone else may tell you, learning Mandarin Chinese in a classroom in your home country is very hard. The words sound totally different. The way Chinese characters look on the page is totally different. Few people outside of the classroom in my hometown speak Chinese, so I had no way to practice my skills. I knew I needed to learn the language, but I just wasn't getting it. I am so thankful that I found Gi2C (Getin2China), because I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have learned Chinese any other way. I took some time away from school and I went to China with Gi2C. I enrolled in a small class full of other students who also didn't speak Mandarin Chinese very well. We had an amazing teacher, and she spent a lot of time just coaching us and talking to us about the lessons. Things really started to...

The Pros and Cons of Interpreters: A Discussion With Getin2China

Companies that want to expand into China have two choices: They can hire interpreters, or they can hire people that can speak Chinese. According to Getin2China, the latter option is preferable. By investing in their employees and helping them to learn the language themselves, companies can reap incredible benefits. Using an interpreter can be a cumbersome process, according to the experts at Getin2China. A person speaks. The interpreter translates and speaks. The responder speaks. The interpreter translates and speaks. The interpreter may not stress the appropriate words or translate words perfectly. The tone of voice may not shine through. Delays in translation can make the conversation seem stilted and halting. The conversations don't have warmth and feeling. When two people are fluent in a language and they speak to one another, there is a flow to the conversation that's hard to replicate with an interpreter, according to the experts at Getin2China....

How Getin2China (Gi2C) Helped Me Learn Chinese

When I was in school, I kept hearing about how important China was, and how that economy was going to grow and grow, and perhaps even eclipse the economy of the United States. I figured that I had better learn the language, so I could stay competitive in the business world. I took a few Mandarin Chinese language classes in my school, but to be honest, I wasn't learning as quickly as I thought I should. I had no opportunity to practice outside of the classroom, and I just felt like the lessons didn't stick. One night, I was browsing the Internet, looking for tutors, books or anything that might give me a little bit of help. I started seeing references to www.Gi2C.org. Other students kept talking about the Mandarin Chinese language program ; how much they learned and how much fun they had while they were studying. I don't like...
