Gi2C Intern Ying’s PR Internship in China

b2ap3_thumbnail_image1_20150818-114934_1.jpeg I was born in Fujian, China, grew up there until age 17, and then I moved to New York City, US. I think the unique part of New York, for me, is the diversity and open-minded mentality. Since there is a large population of people from all over the world that are living in the city, I can feel a cultural mixing everywhere, and people easily accept other cultures. I was always involved in many city events, such as marathons, volunteering, various festivals, and no matter where I went, I could always find out something new about other cultures. I’m currently 24. I enjoy volunteering very much. I learn, care and share through volunteering. This year from February to May, I participated in an environmental sustainability program, and I gained knowledge about recycling, organic farming and forest protection. I hope I could have more time to continuously volunteer during my...

New Gi2C Intern: Tyler’s China Internship in Business Development

b2ap3_thumbnail_image1_20150810-093034_1.jpeg I was born in Arnaudville, Louisiana, which is a small southern town of about one thousand people near the bottom of the United States.  Starting at age 10, I was raised by my grandmother as well as my aunt and uncle. Living out in the rural part of town allowed me to grow up appreciating the peacefulness of the countryside including the beauty of nature. I just had my birthday and am 23 years old. One of the cooler experiences I’ve had was being able to go and walk up on the Skywalk which overlooks the Grand Canyon. A two-inch thick piece of glass is all that keeps you from a couple thousand feet fall to the river below. That first step was one of the more exhilarating moments of my life.  From 2011-2012, I studied linguistics with an emphasis in Mandarin Chinese. I chose this area because I felt...

Working in China: Top Career Opportunities for Expats

b2ap3_thumbnail_image1_20150721-112526_1.jpg Interning in China can be a great way to get the contacts and experience you need to land a full-time job in China. If you want to live in China for several years and have a successful career, here are the top ten hottest jobs for expats in China. 1. Marketing Chinese companies are in a race to expand and sell to an international market. They need foreigners who speak multiple languages and understand the nuances of international business. To land a marketing job in China, you should be social media savvy and preferably good at design and ad creation. 2. Project or Product Management Do you know how to take an idea and plan and put it into action? Can you manage timelines, deadlines and budgets?

Gi2C Intern Zuhaib’s China Architecture Internship

b2ap3_thumbnail_image1_20150721-112112_1.jpeg I am from Huddersfield Town in the Yorkshire & Humberside region of the United Kingdom. What makes Huddersfield so unique is that it is the largest town in the UK; it is a small town where everyone is united and kind to one another. Even though it is a small town, you can find something that fascinates you every day. I am 20 years old and so far there have been many exciting things that I have done in my life but the top of the list would have to be fighting cancer and winning. Currently, I have completed my second year of Architecture/Architecture International. In school, I was always passionate about art and architecture and I have always excelled in the field of art. I was the first in West Yorkshire and possibly the UK to be awarded the Young Creative Entrepreneur title with my own art business. Studying...

Gi2C China Internship Review: Meet Marketing Intern Karen

b2ap3_thumbnail_image1_20150629-130832_1.jpeg I’m from Auckland, New Zealand. A unique fact about New Zealand is that we have more sheep than people – about 2 per person. I’m 20 years old and something fun I’ve done so far in my life is visit Hobbiton and while I was there, all my friends said I was home (because I’m not the tallest person in the world). I studied in the USA and was an Economics & Music major because both areas interested me. Here in China, I will be a marketing intern at a software company that focuses on cloud services. During my time in China, I hope to build connections, gain experience and become more familiar with Chinese culture and how foreigners work in China. I chose to intern in China because I’ve interned in many different cities in the USA. However, I wanted to come back to China where I’m originally from...

Gi2C Internship Review: Amy’s Interior Design Internship in China

b2ap3_thumbnail_image1_20150623-111751_1.jpeg I grew up in Australia, specifically Adelaide which is the wine capital of Australia. One unique thing about Australia is that our holiday season (Xmas and New Year) is always the hottest time of year. I’m currently 26 and something fun I’ve done so far in my life is to be part of the 2012 Olympics in London. I majored in Interior Decoration and Design in school. I chose that degree because I wanted to do something I enjoy and get paid for it. I’m excited to work for a firm that I can learn from and grow with – a firm interested in design and the people they design for. For my China internship, the company I am interning at is focused on retail design. I will be primarily drawing and handling paperwork. What I want most out of my internship is to learn and to have fun. I...

To Gi2C: This program has changed my life forever.

b2ap3_thumbnail_10290626_10203906417241716_6394170953806264268_n.jpg To the Chinese Workforce: I have never worked so hard with such tight deadlines in my life. Because of you, I have a different standard for working when I come back to America. I am not at all saying that Americans are lazy, I am just saying that we do not work as hard/much nor get paid as little.   To the other foreigners in China: Thank you for making the culture shock a bit easier. I have such a sense of joy being around people of different nationalities. I have gained culture from you all as well. Just to name a few of my favorites, Bahar (Turkey), Racheal (England) , Micheal (American), Vitaly (Ukraininan and I hate you still haha), Winnie (Chinese), Mitch (Austrailian), Matt (English), Victor (Spanish) and AnnaBelle (Dutch) these plus the many more that I have met and became the best of friends the same night....

Gi2C Review: New Intern Vittorio begins his Gi2C China Internship

b2ap3_thumbnail_image1_20150611-101935_1.jpeg Born in Avellino, Italy, I moved to Scotland at the age of 19 after completing high school to pursue my ambition of becoming proficient in the English language while living in a country whose history and heritage had always fascinated me. Gi2C comment: Congrats on achieving your goal, Vittorio! Your English is excellent. I am 24 years old and a few years ago, I met a group of people working for a charity that operates in Cuzco. I became involved in their activities, mainly producing crafts to be sold in markets in Italy, the revenues of which went to children in rural areas of the Peruvian Andes.  I then decided to travel to Peru and I was able to continue my charity work once I got to Cuzco, where I taught English to schoolchildren every afternoon for a month. Living in Aberdeen, the oil capital of Europe and being exposed...

Jana’s Gi2C Internship in Shanghai, China

b2ap3_thumbnail_jana00.jpgMy hometown is Bratislava, Slovakia. Bratislava is the capital of a small country in the middle of Europe with rich history and customs. People there are friendly and caring. I’m 25 and have been involved in sports my whole life. I played basketball for 10 years and also took karate. I’m now playing a sport called floorball. I studied international finance management in Slovakia and Germany. I just graduated in February of this year. I chose to study this area because I wanted to know about finance and management and this major was a great opportunity to study both. My Gi2C arranged China internship is working for a company that focuses on finance, tax, accounting, financial counseling and auditing. The company’s service portfolio is huge, but I should be concentrating on primarily taxes and accounting. I’m looking forward to learning other areas during my internship as well. I want to get...

Packing for your China Internship

b2ap3_thumbnail_travel-luggage-packing-tips-03HSS.jpg China is a shopper’s paradise in terms of cheap pricing overall, but some basic necessities that you use back home may be unnecessarily expensive or impossible to find in the Middle Kingdom. If you’re on your way to China in the near future, don’t forget these items: 1. First aid Pack prescriptions and basic medicine such as aspirin, stomach medicine, anti-histamines, vitamins and other over-the-counter remedies. There are lots of pharmacies in China but almost none of them carry products in English or have staff who speak English. Stores like Watsons might have some vitamins and other imported items, but they’ll be super expensive.   2. Contact lenses, solution and extra eyeglasses You should be able to find these items in China eventually, but the product details may be unreadable in Chinese and you don’t want to take any chances of damaging the window to your soul.   3. Hair...

Marthe’s China Architecture Internship

image1_20150511-101056_1.jpeg I’m from DR Congo, Kolwezi city. It’s a small town so people are united and it’s kind of quiet which is why I appreciate it even more. I’m 21 and something interesting that I’ve done so far in my life is to help in a fundraiser for orphans and abandoned kids that raised over $100,000 in 8 months. I’m currently majoring in Civil Engineering and Management at Jiangsu University here in China. I chose China for my education because it is a country that is currently excelling in Civil Engineering and in construction.

New Gi2C Intern Review: Jendrik’s China Internship in Finance

b2ap3_thumbnail_image1_20150501-093626_1.jpeg I´m from Ellwangen, a city next to Stuttgart, the capital city of Baden-Württemberg. Ellwangen is located in one federal state in the southwest of Germany. It´s a very small but historical city with an old castle and wall remains in its inner city. It was a great place to grow up, because I had both city life and nature nearby as well as the opportunity to explore a lot of sports. Now I´m 24 years old, sporty and have work experience in different areas. After I did my A-level, I worked as a volunteer in an ambulance team for a year. After I finished that, I decided to move to Berlin, the capital city of Germany, and started my study. I´m studying Finance Management in Berlin and am in my last semester. During my study, I have worked in an institute and learned practical experience. While participating in a seminar,...

New Gi2C Intern Review: Shanen from Indonesia starts Interning in China

b2ap3_thumbnail_image1_20150423-061313_1.jpeg I’m originally from Indonesia, but I went to a Canadian university in Toronto. Something unique about Toronto would be its harsh icy winter that can get as low as –38 degrees Celsius! I am 20 years old, going on 21 this year. I’ve lived half of my life all by myself studying abroad in Singapore and Canada, so I’ve been exposed to different cultures and all sorts of languages! That being said, it has made me more flexible and easily adaptable which is always a bonus when working abroad in a totally new place, which in my case, is China. I studied Finance in Toronto and I find that it’s such a fun and dynamic subject of studies and we just suit each other. I am interning at an investment and financial advisory firm that focuses on AU, NZ and China business relationships such as investments, market entry, etc. The...

Roman’s Marketing Gi2C China Internship Review

b2ap3_thumbnail_image1_20150414-080611_1.png I'm from Kirovograd; it's in the Ukraine. It is a nice place to grow up because it's really unique, safe and has a clean environment and beautiful parks. It also has charming historical buildings, great masterpieces of architecture, and the first Ukrainian professional theater.  I'm 21 years old and every minute of my life, I try to do interesting and colorful things. I am an open person and up for any challenge, physically or mentally. I am good at tennis because I started my tennis career when I was a child. I also like snowboarding.  I studied in Barcelona, Spain and London, England. My majors were marketing communication, digital marketing and PR.

Gi2C Reviews: Piero from Peru Pursues a Consulting Internship in China

b2ap3_thumbnail_image1_20150406-111936_1.png I am from Lima, Peru. I spent my childhood in my home country and then moved to the United States when I was 14 years old. By then I had experienced a substantial amount of culture that changed my way of looking at the world and my overall personality for the better. After I started living the cosmopolitan city of Miami, I began to become interested in learning foreign languages, traveling with more frequency and learning about other cultures. I am 22 years old and something interesting I’ve done so far in my life is that I acted in the Latin TV show called Sabado Gigante for a couple of months when I used to live in Miami. I also have backpacked all over Western Europe, as well as within the U.S. and this is my second time coming to China. I have a Bachelor’s degree in International Relations and...

Brett’s China Internship in Property Investment

b2ap3_thumbnail_image1_20150323-134518_1.png I am from Gold Coast, the tourism capital of Australia.  It is quite different growing up in a place where people are always coming and going.  It is also different living in a city that is neither a business district, nor a surf town, but somewhere in between.  I am 35 years old and something interesting I’ve done so far in my life is that I have lived within a tribal village in Thailand for a number of weeks and also visited a number of similar villages during my 6 trips to Thailand.  Tribal food can be quite different.  Consequently, I have eaten monkey, locusts, bees, ants, goat, and nearly every part of the chicken. I am interning at a property investment company.  I studied International Business with a major in International Management so this internship is in line with my business background.  I chose international management because I am...

From Japan to China, Erika interns at a start-up

b2ap3_thumbnail_image1_20150311-062329_1.png I’m from Tokyo, Japan. I was born and grew up in Niigata prefecture, which is considered the countryside in Japan. My parents raised me to develop my curiosity and to not be afraid of a challenge. They never ever said “no” to what I tried to do (unless it was illegal, might hurt the others or was immoral).  Looking back on my life, I have experiences of failures, but I don’t have any regrets that I didn’t do something because my parents said no.  I have just turned 22. My life is somehow strongly connected with social innovation and overseas. After I entered university 4 years ago, I was working for the biggest worldwide student organization called AIESEC for 3 years. I supported Japanese university students who are willing to do their internship overseas by consulting and developing our products. I learned how much making an impact on each person...

Olli from Finland starts an internship in China

b2ap3_thumbnail_image1.jpeg  “I am 32 and from Kuopio, Finland. What is unique about my hometown? Well, a certain well-known figure, Santa Claus, is from Finland and we have a very strong sauna culture.  Something interesting I’ve done so far in life is make a documentary of Iceland. In terms of my educational background, I studied International business in both Finland and Australia. While in school, I wanted to work at an embassy but later on in my career, when I actually did, I didn’t like it.  I will be interning at a virtual currency, trade and commerce company.  Although I don’t know what kind of work I’ll be doing exactly, I hope to learn some transferrable skills and meet new people.  I chose China because this country seems to be a major hotspot. I randomly found Gi2C and was interested to learn more about this country that was rich in culture. I’m...
