My interior design internship in Beijing - Aishah

b2ap3_thumbnail_image002_20141120-101943_1.jpg Aishah started her interior design internship in Beijing this month and ironically comes to a country infamous for tea from a county infamous for the same. I am from a town called Harrogate; it is situated near Leeds and York in England. An interesting story about my town involves a nearby bridge, which has collapsed twice. It has been predicted that the third time it collapses, it will be the end of the world. Harrogate is located inside a county called Yorkshire, which is famous for its Yorkshire tea. I am 26 years old and I have flown an aeroplane a few times during my time at Air Cadets. I studied Interior Architectural Design and Applied Creative Design last year. I chose this area because I have always been slightly artistic and have always liked decorating and designing interior spaces. I am interning at an interior design company based in Beijing,...

China internship discussion with Naomi B.

b2ap3_thumbnail_image001_20141107-102750_1.jpg We love hearing personal stories from new interns about their background and why they chose to intern in China! Let’s see what Naomi has to say about her current one-month internship in Beijing. I am 22 and from Nottingham, England. An interesting fact about Nottingham is that it was home to the legend Robin Hood. I have just completed my studies to become a Barrister [lawyer] in the U.K. I undertook my LLB Law Degree at the University of Lincoln and I went on to study the Bar Professional Training Course at Nottingham Trent University. I have always been interested in helping others and I believe a career in the legal profession would enable me to do that. I like meeting new people and problem solving and these are all things the legal profession has given me the opportunity to do. I have just started my internship at a law...

Why I’m returning for a second time to work in China - by Serge M.

b2ap3_thumbnail_image001_20141030-071730_1.jpg I live in Birmingham, United Kingdom but I grew up in Brazzaville, which is the capital and the largest city of the Republic of the Congo. It is a small country in central Africa with a population of 3.5 million. Something unique about where I grew up is that my dad used to take me and my brothers fishing every Sunday. So until now, fishing has been my second passion after football and I have always supported Arsenal Football Club since I was a kid. But I moved to Shanghai in 1995 when I was 23 years old to pursue my post-graduate studies, so it's been over 19 years since I left Africa. Brazzaville is a big city with 800,000 inhabitants and I still have good friends and good memories there. I am 42 years old and I love travelling. I have been to many countries of the world. Actually,...

My Internship In Beijing with Gi2C – Shauni L.

b2ap3_thumbnail_image001_20141029-112211_1.png Twenty-two year old Shauni is from a small town in the southern part of the Netherlands, which she told us was “a great place to grow up!” However, she has had the travel bug since college when she studied Science of Tourism, which she chose because traveling is such a big passion of hers. Shauni said “It would be great if I could make this hobby [of traveling] part of my profession! One of the most exciting things I’ve done in my life was an international field project in Thailand. I did research about sustainability in the dive industry for my study.” Shauni also volunteered in Swaziland. With already having such exciting experiences under her belt, no wonder Shauni was looking forward to her next new opportunity abroad! Shauni chose to do her Gi2C internship with a Beijing travel company, which markets US destinations to Chinese travelers. A job that fits...

Why intern in China? - By Brian K.

b2ap3_thumbnail_image002_20141018-091506_1.png I am from LeMars, Iowa, USA. While growing up, I was involved in many organizations such as Boy Scouts and 4-H. I am currently 22 years old and have had the opportunity to travel many places. Over the last 4 years, I completed college at Iowa State University with a major in Finance and Accounting. I will be interning at a network finance company in Beijing. My job description includes investor relations, customer service, and supporting the business development and sales teams. I hope to expand my professional network through this internship and learn more about financial markets in China. I am very interested in learning the cultural differences in financial positions in the US and China. Working in China has interested me for the last few years. China is a diverse landscape and its economy has expanded quickly. I do not have many contacts in China and hope to...
