Interning in China
Submitted by Tanya - - | October 17, 2016
My name is Tanya, a new graduate from Australia. My proficiency of Chinese before doing the program was almost non-existent. I chose to do the full internship package in Beijing.
My did internship for 3 month with Go Abroad China Internship in China Program. My internship was the typical financial jobs you would expect –prepare financial reports, provide financial advice, business analysis, etc. I learnt lots of practice working experience which I have to say.
My Chinese definitely improved and I became more independent as a result of living by myself in a foreign country. I would recommend the internship program to every of my classmates and friends, and you are guaranteed what the internship will be like.
GAC was satisfactory. I was able to quickly come to China and experience a different culture and learn a lot. The staff in Beijing were pleasant enough during the application process and were quick to reply. The GAC representative in Beijing city was welcoming, friendly, and tried her best to help with all my problems. She definitely made a big difference and enriched my stay in Beijing.
Internship in business sector: Beijing
Submitted by Valerie - - | October 05, 2016
Enrolling with Go Abroad China in the internship program was a good experience for me, I joined a business & consulting firm in Beijing (I’m a business major) and got to work very quickly within days of arriving in China. For anyone coming to China, don’t be surprised at the work hours, they are different from many countries from what I have noticed. But coming from the view that I wanted to learn and had a strict number of weeks to complete an internship, it helped me a lot. I applied probably a month before I wanted to start the internship and they were able to get me a position relatively quickly.
On their part, I think there was an even/dinner with everyone that applied through GAC per month so I got attend two of those. Communication was relatively easy with GAC, we communicated largely through email and skype here and there.
It was my first time in Beijing city and I liked it with its loudness and had many more foreigners than I imagined.
Business internship in Beijing
Submitted by Veronica - Regis University; Thornton Dual Campus | September 26, 2016
My name is Veronica, I did a business internship in Beijing last summer and really had a good experience there. The business dealt with exports and supplies and my roles included helping maintain records of goods, ensuring with my boss which products are meant to leave and what time etc. After that usually I would need to write a report.
I interned for only a month, and it just flew by very quickly. I contacted Go Abroad China to help me with this internship placement, keeping in mind my budget and other needs which included a place to live. They also helped me get introduced to the company right in Beijing and once on the weekend joined everyone for a trip to Beijing's Forbidden City.
Generally speaking everything went smoothly and I got good treatment, I wish though I had the means to have been able to extend by a couple more weeks. But living in Beijing for that time was great, I enjoyed the city especially during my spare time during the weekends. One thing you need to be aware of is that the internship most times is like full time work. You check in like everybody else for around eight hours per day.
Interning in 北京
Submitted by Alisa Kizzy - - | September 14, 2016
When I decided to get an internship in China, it was a big decision for me, but it really turned out great as I had hoped. The company was at a great location, in Guomao and Go Abroad China had organised an apartment from me rather convenient because I traveled for around 40 minutes to work every morning. I know what you are probably thinking...40 minutes on the subway! actually once you understand the city life of Beijing and you see how everybody commutes, it's not a big deal.
Anytime I needed help with something I would speak to a pleasant lady called Nadia from Go Abroad China, and generally it went well.
At my internship, I was at a consulting firm and specifically I was working with a team that dealt with research issues for a local charity. What i learned from my internship is that somebody who works in consulting needs to be a fast thinker, creative and have a lot of knowledge.
Even though sometimes of course the work is hectic but the weekends were a blast. I met some other great people who were also doing internships, I think it was nice that GAC would try to help us all to meet each other!
Chinese at BLCU
Submitted by Laina - - | September 08, 2016
I took the summer program at BLCU for a month organized through Go Abroad China. As a student taking Asian studies in college, part of my requirement was to take time for study abroad. GAC promised to arrange for me and for the large part I am satisfied with their services, getting picked up from the airport, arranging for me to live with a Chinese family a few subway stops from BLCU and having the activity on the weekend. My studies were quite intensive since my time was so short and the end I had exams, a transcript and credit transfer that I had to take back to my college. I have been learning Chinese since my senior year in high school and continued with it even to college, the learning pace in BLCU was faster than what I expected, i had the same teacher for grammar and reading, then listening was twice a week with a different teacher. I really enjoyed my short time in Beijing, I got to try authentic Chinese food and lived with a Chinese family although I noticed Chinese apartments are a little bit smaller than what I expected. I met a lot of other international students joining the same summer program as I did, and I tend to miss BLCU sometimes.
