New Gi2C Intern, Henry, begins his China internship


I am from York in the north of England. York is unusual in the UK because it is incredibly ancient. It is of strategic importance because it is halfway between London and Scotland. It has a castle with complete walls all the way around the city that are 2000 years old.

I’m 24 years old and something cool I have done in my life so far is to live in South Africa and train elephants. I went to school in London and studied microbiology and business management. Science is fascinating to me as I’m a very curious person. I will be interning at a finance company that focuses on wealth management. I excited to learn more about Asia business culture.

China was my go-to internship destination because it is a superpower and will become even more relevant. China is big and busy. That’s the best way to describe it.

I contacted a few internship providers but Gi2C was the first actual person who I spoke to on the phone. Jackie was so nice. He won me over.  In order to prepare for my move to China, I contacted people I knew in China and followed their recommendations.  My family and friends reacted positively to my decision to intern in China. I will miss them and my dog while I’m away.

In today’s multicultural world, the more experience you have working abroad and with diverse teams, the more successful you will be. There’s no doubt that China is one of the hottest international job markets at the moment. Shanghai and Beijing continue to be the top China destinations for having the most opportunities available for foreigners. These two cities are very different from each other yet both are great places to learn about Chinese business culture, which is the same anywhere. 

If you’re not sure how to make your way over to this exciting country on your own, Gi2C is here to help. Whether you’re interested in finance like Henry or any number of other industries, you can be sure that work experience in China will look great on your CV.
