Shanghai: A life changing experience

This review has been the hardest to write for me by far. It is difficult, but on the other hand challenging of trying to sum up months of experience in just a few paragraphs.

During my internship in Shanghai I was positioned as a business developer. My duties were to improve the organization’s market position and achieve financial growth on a long term base. My primary role was to prospect new clients by networking and other means of generating interest from potential clients.

I just returned from my internship. I had a wonderful experience in Shanghai. I want to appreciate China Global Connections, especially Ms.Chen, who helped me a lot. I was not sure before the start of the internship, but Ms. Chen reassured me that I would not encounter any difficulties regarding my internship.

I can tell you that in the beginning I had a cultural shock, because everything was different than at home, but after a week I got used to the Chinese environment including its people, food, infrastructure (which is really good organized) and everything else.

At the internship there were many things that I liked and enjoyed. I was able to work with friendly people and learn the ways of doing business in China.

Overall I am very happy with the company where I had my internship and the city Shanghai which I really recommend, because I definitely will return one day to visit the company and my friends in Shanghai.
