b2ap3_thumbnail_image002_20141212-064404_1.jpg
Michael is from Copenhagen, Denmark, which is unique for its paid education, snowy winter, and the Little Mermaid in Tivoli . Those of us with school loans are suddenly thinking about moving to Denmark, right? Some interesting things he has done in the past 26 years have been sky diving, bungee jumping, and getting a master’s degree in Sydney, Australia. Michael is clearly not afraid of trying new things and adventure! Those two qualities are exactly what all new visitors to China need to have. He has a bachelor’s in Business Engineering and undertook an MBA to challenge himself and learn English. Michael is interning in the consulting industry in Shanghai  and hopes to learn as much as possible about working in a professional company as well as working in a different country and culture. As with many of our Gi2C interns , Michael hopes to make a good impression...

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.

Shanghai Intern Joe from Canada

b2ap3_thumbnail_Untitled.png
Joe F. recently landed in China, let's see what he thinks about his new internship adventure! I am from Vancouver but I also grew up in Calgary, Canada. Vancouver possesses an allencompassing geography ranging from mountainous terrain to sandy beaches thus providing an enriching active lifestyle. Growing up in Calgary was fantastic due to the huge amount of snowfall you get during a prolonged winter season and good old quality Alberta beef! I am 25 years young turning 26 end of this year. Something interesting I’ve done so far is being fortunate enough to have traveled to various places in North America and China such as: Seattle, L.A., Chicago, Toronto, Shanghai , Nanjing, and more. I still intend to tackle Europe in the coming years. I studied at Simon Fraser University with a Bachelor of Arts in the Faculty of Communications, Arts & Technology. (FCAT). I chose to study Communications...

China Intern Testimonial: Josh Seerattan from Canada

b2ap3_thumbnail_image002.jpg
Josh has recently arrived in China from the fine city of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. He is 30 years old and studied international business, corporate social responsibility, and Spanish when he was in school. He will be interning with a public relations company in Shanghai and is not exactly sure all the details of his job but is looking forward to gaining marketable experience and contacts in the industry. He'll also be using the time to decide if he should remain in China after his internship or look for future entrepreneurial ventures in other parts of the globe. Josh was interested in a China internship because he studied international business and thus wanted to launch his career in a city that is a hub for global business. "I figured if in the event there are no opportunities career-wise for me in China , I will at the very least be able...
