Meet Annie-Mei from Canberra, Australia – New Gi2C Intern in Beijing 798

b2ap3_thumbnail_image001_20140904-055219_1.jpg
Hi Annie-Mei! Tell us a little about yourself. I live in Canberra, Australia now but growing up I lived on the Gold Coast in Queensland right next to the beach. We used to go surfing in primary school for summer sport because we could walk across the road from school to the beach. I am 22 years old. Some exciting things I’ve done so far in life… I've been to a music festival in Serbia called EXIT, seen an active volcano on the island of Hawaii and was in Barcelona when Spain won the Eurocup final in 2012. I studied a Bachelor of Arts at the Australian National University majoring in Chinese (Mandarin) and Art History. I studied Chinese in high school and decided to continue with it. As for Art History, I came across it by accident when I took an Art History course as an elective. I really...

Wish list: Applying from America to Win a Free China Internship!

Natalie
“So, what do you do?” If I had a nickel for every time someone asked me that, I might be as rich as Bill Gates. For the past few years, my response has been the same: “I am a full-time student.” Not a very exciting response, is it? Now more than ever, there is a pressure for the younger generation to go to an accredited university to receive a higher education. But what happens after we graduate? This is the question that can be difficult for us to answer, especially with how hard it is for us to claim the job of our dreams – or any job for that matter. It is like the question we were asked in kindergarten: “What do you want to be when you grow up?” My answer then was a veterinarian. I have always had a love for animals, so I read every book...

Wish list: Applying from Spain to Win a Free China Internship!

Isabel
Can an internship in China change your future career? Here's Isabel's answer: Well, it’s like winning a lottery ticket, isn’t it? The impact of an internship nowadays on a curriculum vitae is probably as important as having had some experience in the field you want to work. Three, six or nine months of internship in a company can really make a difference on your future career. And of course, economic factors have an impotant role in this situation, the current financial recession has favoured the existence of a ‘gap’ between academic and professional lives. So by offering internships in one of the countries with one of the most prosperous and powerful economies, you are filling that ‘gap’ that the vast majority of people currently find after finishing their studies. To be honest, I’m not looking for a job after the internship , my priority at the moment is to try something...

Sandra a prospect intern in China with Gi2C
An internship can change your life and affect your career. Choices, a simple yet powerful word that can make ordinary things great… one word, yet life changing. It can transform life according to what you desire. If we sum up everything, life is all about choices. My name is Sandra and I choose to change my life.   As I look back, I can still see the scholar student of Mindanao State University-Iligan Institute of Technology who was striving hard enough to finish her college degree that can create her own first door to success. She has a lot of hopes and dreams in life. She enjoys helping and loves adventure. She will always be that optimistic woman under a dark cloud. She has a very proud mother and a very supportive social worker father. No matter how difficult life can be, she chose to accept the scholarship and managed...

Intern Update: Anna Setterberg

Anna Setterberg's internship in Beijing with Getin2China
Anna Setterberg learned a thing or two about working in China during her internship in Beijing . “ The business environment in China is fast moving. You start out with one team, and at the end of your internship, you leave a completely different one.” Anna finished her three-month internship at Alain Charles Asia Publishing Ltd , where she worked on the latest edition of the China Business Handbook , an indispensable guide for anyone seeking to do business in the Middle Kingdom. She began her internship editing the handbook, “but my main task ended up being research.” Like in any foreign work environment, Anna said there were challenges, which included colleagues who did not speak English, limited and slow Internet access and little contact with her supervisor. “My boss was away for 2/3 of my time at the company. Our communication was therefore restricted to Skype chats, and as...

How to Get the Job You Want

Get the Job You Want
You have a job, but you’re miserable. It’s time to get the job you want. Discard entry-level templates, shrug off your excuses, and follow these five tips to ensure the next time is the last time you disappear down the will-they/won’t-they employment rabbit hole. What Do Your Qualifications Say About You? The choices we make post university can either bolster or undermine our piece of paper. While a degree in engineering or planning may attract the attention of boutique recruitment companies, a lack of volunteer work or engaging extra-curricular activities may count against you. If you’ve got the extra-curriculars on there, talk about the outstanding experiences you had (which is why extra-curriculars should never simply be resume padding. If you sign up for one, throw yourself completely in to get the most experience out of it). Companies and agencies feel comfortable with hiring candidates who reflect their philosophy, embrace teamwork,...

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....
