Breath Taken

I kept asking myself over and over again I made the right decision coming to China as an engineering student. But I wasn’t wrong with my decision because the internship gave me the chance to practically understand and act professionally in my industry.
Luckily, I worked closely with experts in the industry and also, traveled to remote provinces where lots of the real work took place. Also, had the opportunity to meet local people, made new friends, and importantly visited lots of cultural sites.
It was a pleasure been in China and definitely recommend the program to you.

Ask me how I’m doing after the internship

My intern abroad with a 7-star hotel in Shanghai was the most incredible and memorable experience I have ever had. The hotel was so amazing and it’s worth the cost.
Also, it was not just working but rather caring for our clients and the entire staff. It was a family affair and that defines the hospitality industry.
I was very active in my daily operations and engaged myself in all aspect of operations. I was seen everywhere and everyone knew me.
Been part of the HR team at the hotel gave me the opportunity to respond to guest complaints, ensure friendly environment and timely dissemination of information across dept., listening and sharing ideas and many other creative activities.
I very much enjoyed company events (parties) and training section. Am very happy to be part o this program and looking forward to same opportunity back home.

Xiexie China

Spending 2 months working (internship) in China was my real job experience in life. It was more hard work getting here than I thought it would be, but it was worth it at the end.
There was lots of fun and also, had the opportunity to witness cultural events organized by the local people.
I was assigned to a great company and a working team where I assisted the general manager with administrative duties. My day-to-day duties included the handling of accounts receivable and payables, accurate preparation of client documentation, assisting in reconciling bank statement and review of payroll records, guided in handling expense reports etc.

It was an awesome intern and would highly recommend the program to anyone interested in an internship that is in an area of interest.

Timely Internship

This internship abroad has taught me many things in life. The program helped broaden my professional experience, opportunity to work with talented people and the chance to establish a network of professionals.
I am very confident because I know that I have lived in a country that has unique cultural values different from mine.
Firstly, I had the privilege to intern with a known accounting firm based in Shanghai and this enabled me to adapt to working on the global scene. Very experienced and dedicated workforce encouraged me in my daily activities. I thank CIP for such career opportunity.
As an accounting intern, I assisted in performing portfolio and partnership accounting, provide support to the investment management team, participate in the preparation of audit and tax data requests, review investment performance returns, administrative assistance to the fund accounting department, etc.
I had a great time working in China and if given the chance, I will do it again and again.

As a woman and a young female student pursuing finance, I always hear people say – this is a difficult task, you cannot do it. Am glad to say that – this is NOT in my dictionary.
My internship in China was awesome and indeed broadened my academic perspective in the industry. Not only did I gain practical experience at my intern company but also helped me develop my career skills.
The program is very organized packed with corporate events and social activities (historical sites). During my time interning, I helped in the financial analyses of our clients, assisted the team with clients portfolio management, observe financial advice given to clients, building good relationship management, other related asset management techniques offered to our clients.
It was a long career journey full of lessons and hope to be back for real job.

Flying all the way from Germany for my internship added value to my resume and also opportunity to build corporate networks in my industry.

In my area of operation, as web content (intern), all I was tasked to do is to ensure that I meet the needs of the target group. Moreover, I was responsible for the maintenance and development of the site, analyzing the site usage (statistics), promotion about the site, reporting discrepancies to supervisor for redress and others.

Awesome Internship

Coming to China was not an easy decision to take because it was my first time going to Asia. But upon arriving and welcoming by CIP at the airport, my perception changed.
My intern position was in the Accounting field and the company I worked for was very known in the industry. I was surrounded by the experienced team who made my working environment challenging but entertaining.
The internship helped me develop my practical skills as far as accounting is concerned and on the other hand, paved way for me to visit tourist sites.
It was a memorable stay for me in Beijing (China) and encourage all to join the program.

Internship Worth every “Mao”

Value they say – is worth the money spent. I recently completed my internship with an investment company that provides diverse and investing services to clients (investors).
Professionally, the program gave me valuable insight into the corporate world and the importance of networking in such working environment.
I learned a lot about the industry and also benefited from having a brilliant Boss.
Am going back home with rich working experience and hope to put into practice as and when the need arises.

It was a thrilling 9 weeks working experience in Shanghai (China) where I pursued my internship program. CIP program was incredibly helpful, understanding and flexible as far as career development is concerned.

On the job skills gained are: assisting to review client’s assets, attending to client assets needs, asset valuation and revaluation, assisting the team with expenditure planning, performing client database maintenance and other related duties.
I’m very excited to have made such a journey and also, thank CIP for such opportunity. Don’t be surprised if you see me here in China again?

Career Crossing

My guiding principle as a student is to search for avenues to build a unique career development journey. Having such thought encouraged me to apply for an internship program in China. China is an ideal destination because of its current economic performance (2nd worldwide) and rich cultural heritage.
Leaving home for the first time was not an easy task but friends and family motivated me in making such decision a reality. Quick visa processing, the nice accommodation, visit ancient historical sites, meeting new people, office events and parties made my stay memorable.
Assigned to the marketing dept during my internship added a lot of practical experience to my classroom knowledge. I almost worked independently after few weeks been introduced to the job. Some functions performed were performing market analysis and research on competition, prepare a promotional presentation, assist distribute marketing materials, data entry and update company database and customer relationship management systems (CRM), support daily administrative tasks, etc.
Nothing will make me happier than to come back again. Thanks.

It’s a great experience to begin your career life in a country like China. Currently, is the world second largest economy and also, attracting a lot of multinational companies in the country.
Am glad I took such decision of coming to China for my internship. Visa processes, Insurance, and others went smoothly with the assistance of CIP Team. Accommodation and my entire stay in China were pretty much okay. Visited a lot of tourist sites, had a reputable company for my internship, enjoy Chinese Cuisines and importantly, made a lot of Native friends in China.
As an accounting intern with a Beijing prestigious firm, I performed a lot of tasks, namely, filing and scanning documents, helping with bank statements reconciliation, account receivables, and payables, assist the team to perform physical inventory (semi-annual), support the payment processing team, help with the month-end financial reports, and many other related duties.
I loved everything so much that I intend to come back for a permanent job. This is an excellent avenue given to ALL International Students and a great platform to make new friends (work place).
I loved it. Family and friends will hear about it.

As the saying goes “first instincts always the best”. Often, you'll hear people say that you should "trust your instincts" when making decisions. Being in a dilemma as to where to do my intern abroad program really got to me.
I’m Joseph (citizen of USA) and had the privilege to undertake a 2 months internship program in Shanghai, China. At the beginning, I was offered a similar program in Hong Kong but my gut instincts opt for Shanghai, China. The busy vibrant city with its unique riverside and financial Hub is one of the most wanted places everyone should be. My 9 weeks internship in Shanghai will be one of the unforgettable memories in my life.
I count myself very lucky to be an intern in an Accounting Firm in Shanghai, directly working with the General Manager (for that matter). As accounting intern in the Tax Department, some of my roles included assembling and organizing clients information, preparing reports that highlight the expected results of tax returns, input client data, reconciling final tax returns with expected results, among others.
I see myself “on-top” with the new skills acquired.
At the beginning, family and friends did not come to terms with my decision of traveling abroad for an internship but upon return home, they appreciated such decision.
Sincerely, I must confess, coming to China (Beijing) had opened a lot of career opportunities for me.
As HR Intern with a multinational company, I had a fascinating but “human face” approach of dealing with issues. Understanding and appreciating your personnel is an important tool for organization success.
I worked at the firm for 3 months and during my internship, I learnt many things – namely, working with the HR Team to prepare job description, filing, posting recruitments on job boards, taking minutes at meeting, assist resolving employees complaints, observing interview sections and notifying interviewees – selected and not selected, writing and circulating memos, etc.
In addition, the corporate dinners and other evening entertainment events were incredibly unforgettable. I cherished every moment spent in Beijing.
Recommending people is the least thing I can do as beneficiary. I would recommend this program to anyone interested in developing his/her career abroad.
Thanks, CIP; thanks to my internship accounting firm; thanks, Shanghai; and lastly, thanks, China.
