Why China for a Business Internship?

b2ap3_thumbnail_image001_20141015-134152_1.jpg I am 25 years old from San Francisco, California. Something unique about the growing up in San Francisco is that I was constantly surrounded by people from many different cultures. This helped me get used to cultures different from my own. Being a youth leader at my church since the age of 17 helped me learn other useful business skills such as patience and how to manage groups of people. I studied at San Francisco State University and graduated from there with a degree in Business Administration with a concentration in International Business. I chose this area because learning about different cultures and how to work in different countries was an idea that excited me. I will be interning at an international finance company located in Beijing. I will be working in sales, developing and communicating with people in the US. We will also assist customers through phone, email or...

Gavin’s Finance Internship In Beijing, China

b2ap3_thumbnail_image001_20140929-130436_1.jpg Gavin R. was born in a small town in Northern Ireland called Holywood. He just so happen to go to primary and secondary school with the world’s number one golfer, Rory McIlroy, so his claim to fame is playing golf on the same course as Rory! Tell us a little about yourself, Gavin. “I am 21 years old and recently I took part in a charity hitchhike with my university from Durham in the North of England to Amsterdam in Holland. I was in a team of three and we managed to hitch hike in people’s cars the whole way there for free in less than 30 hours. We were the quickest team and one of the only teams to spend no money on travel so it was a huge success and a lot of fun. I am currently studying Economics in the UK. I am entering my third and...

My Beijing Internship Experience with Gi2C

b2ap3_thumbnail_image001_20140926-091620_1.pngTamara is beginning her Gi2C China internship program in Beijing and we had the pleasure of hearing her story.   I grew up in a small town pretty much in the countryside. The closest large, well-known city is Zurich, which is about 30 minutes away. Switzerland is infamous for our cheese and chocolate and I guess that's what foreign people identify Switzerland with and of course having great banks! I am 22 years old and something interesting about myself is that I have won the Swiss championship in Badminton when I was 13. Other than badminton, I also love travelling a lot. I am currently working on my Bachelor's degree in Business Communications. I chose to study this field because I like to learn languages and I think one of the most essential departments in an industry is the communications department as it represents the company. I will be working at the...

My China Internship Experience - Christian W.

b2ap3_thumbnail_Christian-W.jpg Christian has just completed his two-month Gi2C internship in the communications industry. His job was to assist in the production of design and branding for the company and clients. One thing about his internship that he was surprised by was the amount of responsibility he was given from the onset. However, this trust kept him motivated to succeed and to increase his professionalism. During his internship, Christian learned how to harness his creativity and passion and his organizational ability to create a powerful approach of satisfying both clients needs and time constraints. Christian said, “While working in a Chinese environment, I learned that the eastern approach to design must be understood before incorporating western styles of design.” His biggest challenge during the internship was a technical one. “As I am a Macbook user with my main input and output being Adobe software, PPT was something I always dreaded and had...

Interning with an international finance company in Beijing

b2ap3_thumbnail_image001_20140912-112529_1.jpg Yessenia’s family hails from Carazo, Nicaragua. She told us that the thing she enjoys most about her hometown is nature and the beautiful environment. One of the most interesting things she has done in her twenty-two years on this earth is riding a bull when she was little because her father used to own a farm. Yessenia moved to California to study Business and recently graduated from San Francisco State University with a degree in Business Administration, with a concentration in Marketing. She chose to study in San Francisco because it is where she was born, and she loves the city!
