On Tour: Sonoma State University (California)











October 2nd, 2012 - Sonoma State University Go Global Study & Work Abroad Fair In the United States, and throughout most of the world, the Sonoma County in California is regarded as a premier wine producing region. But Gi2C  didn't visit this fertile valley to sip Syrah or uncork Cabernet - we came to talk to the students of Sonoma State University about exploring the opportunity of doing an internship in China. Having come from the Go Global Expo in Canada , Roshni and I were ready to keep the momentum going. Unfortunately we had lost Adam, our fire-breathing mascot. However, we did pick up two more fellas from the airport in San Francisco...   Ben and Yuri - Get in2 China's Founders and General Managers.

Internship Placement: Courtney (Brisbane, Australia)


Last month we accompanied one of our interns to an interview with a potential internship placement company. We had some time before the scheduled meeting and sat down for a cup of coffee and a last minute briefing. The Intern: Courtney is an Australian from Brisbane. She is already well acquainted with the city, as she arrived in Beijing in February to take part in a summer program at Beijing Language and Culture University. That program has just finished, and she is looking for something to do before returning back home for Christmas. She told us that she might come back to China after that, because she wants to learn more Chinese or possibly find a job. Courtney is interested in communication and public relations and that is what she studied back in Australia. Also the mining industry is something she finds fascinating. She hopes to learn a lot and to have...

Getin2China and Southern Methodist University Partnership: New Ways to Experience China


Originally published in February, 2011 In early 2011, Get in2 China Group established a partnership with Southern Methodist University (SMU), located in Dallas, Texas, USA. Through this partnership, 20 students from SMU were able to visit China while on their summer break. Participating in a 3-week long program, the students had the opportunity to get both professional and cultural experience while participating in an internship with a company in Beijing.

Sebastian Armstrong had only been in Beijing for just over 24 hours when he arrived at the Get in2 China office for his internship placement.

Intern Updates: T'ai Chi at Ritan Park (Beijing)










Beijing is a city characterized by a somewhat constant state of confusion and contradiction. Living is Beijing , you often feel as if you are continuously straddling two different worlds. One world is a city undergoing full-throttle modernization, the other is still trying to honor the  foundation of the capital's past, one built on centuries of history and tradition. The swirling of the past, present, and future - that is what Beijing is about. And though you are able to take a world-class subway system to work and pick-up a Starbucks coffee on your way into the office, there are certain parts of life in Beijing that serve as a reminder that the city is a crucible of Chinese culture, and that even as much of the city transforms, certain traditions carry on. One of these notable customs is the practice of T'ai Chi . Head to one of Beijing's...
