Gi2C Beijing Finance Internship

I really enjoyed my time in Beijing, especially the social aspect with the other interns at Gi2C. The city is fantastic with lots to do including visiting the Great Wall and the Forbidden City. On the downside I was only at my job for one month so feel I did not have long enough to really get involved in big financial deals and a lot of what I did was not that useful for my future career. However, I did learn a lot about Chinese business culture and I feel the experience will be very useful in the future.

How can this program be improved?
My placement company was not ideal as it was a small business with not many English speaking employees. This stopped me getting the most out of the internship

Broaden Your Horizons

I am older than most interns. I have been to 16 countries, and have lived in three where English is not the primary language. You might say I have some life experience that is relevant to an internship in China. In the beginning, I kept a mental note of how it seemed every single day I was confronted with a new obstacle to overcome. For example: my electronic key wouldn't work to let me in the housing compound, there are no dryers readily available for finishing your laundry, I could not get to the post office during working hours, etc. . . . Oh, and I couldn't speak the language -- even to communicate basic needs.

Whether big or small, these hurdles came at me on a regular basis. I learned to work through them and built a custom-made Chinese set of solutions, which included: patience, determination, letting go, and Chinese friends who spoke (some) English. I took language classes twice a week for the first couple months, I found a translation app on one of the country's social networking sites. In short, I learned to adapt.

What I am coming away with is nearly 2,500 photos of my time here, innumerable memories, and a great boost to my resume. I am pursuing a Masters in Business Administration, with a concentration in Finance. This is the sort of work I wanted to do when I applied to Gi2C, and this is largely what I did. In the most general sense, I was put to work in a company researching new fields (particularly in the Technology and Finance sectors), and reporting to my boss on how their growing investment company could find opportunities for wealth creation outside of China.

Those who live in New York City like to claim: "If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere." Well, I have never lived in New York (though I've made many trips there), but I think a more accurate assessment is: "If you can make it in Beijing without speaking the language, you can make it anywhere." (It really wasn't so bad, I'm merely exaggerating . . .) But the point is, this country has a lot to offer, and Gi2C is an excellent way to get your foot in the door!

How can this program be improved?
Well, my complaints or constructive criticism is personal and probably would not apply to interns as a whole. The only thing that sticks out in my mind (and it’s only a minor consideration), is that I could not get a prorated fee for my language classes. I had so many things occupying my time, I opted to stop going to class – so that I could find a little free, “unscheduled” time in my life. When I asked if I could get a refund for that month of classes I did not use, the answer was that it’s too complicated and not negotiable. Again, almost not worth mentioning, but in a cost-benefit analysis, it is an unnecessary cost that could not be avoided.

Daily responsibilities

I've been here for 2 weeks, my daily job is searching some information about spain immigranting. And sometimes I will do translation. I think the working environment is well, I have chance to speak English, however, it's not very satisfied. I would like to do something interesting and can learn something new. But I'm enjoy it~

Interning at GI2C

It was rather hard at first to get around the city, but I am now more comfortable with taking the subway and bus. The staff has been very supportive and helpful. Overall it was a great experience, both with GI2C and on my own.

How can this program be improved?
I would have liked to have more communication, before coming to China, in the emails. I would have liked to know that they have recieved and looked at my emails as soon as they see it.

How can this program be improved?
when recruiting experienced interns,they should consider puting them in companies that have high chances of employment and atleast giving them a wages/salary,as those people they were working before they joined the internship.provide their interns with chinese language E-learning program,two months before they start their internship.

Day to Day

Not much to tell about my day to day life. I'd usually wake up, have my morning workout, shower, head to work, and after work I'd have kick boxing class. Overall, I'm already adapting really well in China, getting used to my old routine just in another country. I've had an amazing time and experience here. The people, city, culture, they are all beautiful and I cannot wait to come back and visit them all again. The only problem I have with Beijing is the subway and the pollution.

How can this program be improved?
Give more instructions on what to prepare, especially anything that has to do wit your stay such as visa, and required documents (Residency form, etc).
