Remote Internship: Pagoda Projects

I recently completed a remote internship which Pagoda Projects have recently stated doing during this year. I thoroughly enjoyed doing this, it was something different but the support from the team was amazing and made the thought of doing a remote internship much easier
the team also did events about networking, quizzes, wellbeing etc and all of these helped me in different ways (academically, career-prospects, mental well-being etc) and found them all influential.
I would recommend this to anyone!

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
the chance to do this in the host company (obviously hard during 2020)

This is the internship experience you want in China

I signed up for a 12-week internship in Zhuhai, China through Internchina beginning in May, 2015. The interview process was great as I got to meet my future boss and learn about the company.

I paid my deposit, signed a contract and was placed all within 3 weeks in February, 2015. There was a bit of a delay with the invitation letter required for the travel visa, but I did receive it in time. There was enough communication throughout the whole process that I felt taken care of.

Upon arriving in China, I was introduced to the office manager Paul Bailey and his staff at the Zhuhai office. They were very friendly and accommodating and the social atmosphere was exactly what you would want in a completely foreign place with no English. There were a few issues with the apartment upon move-in, but they were corrected quickly without hassle.

The amount of flexibility and latitude I had at my placement company is what really set this internship apart. I was given the ability to make decisions, changes, and rearrange things to improve the operations of the business in a meaningful way. I got a wide breadth of hands-on experience and was able to travel with the company to other parts of China to inspect operations there. It was an incredible experience. Internchina constantly provided support and activities to make the experience enjoyable. My girlfriend stayed with me (not as an intern) and they were more than accommodating to her as well.

I had some pretty bad experiences with other internship companies in the past but Internchina was outstanding. I highly recommend an internship placement with them.

What would you improve about this program?
Invitation letter should be sent sooner, and the apartment should be inspected by foreign staff, not Chinese.

What am I supposed to write here??

Having taken the full monty including an internship in a marketing segment as well as daily Chinese courses with fantastic teachers, and living with an incredibly nice local Chinese family, I had three of the greatest months of my life in Zhuhai!
The support is just as superb as IC claims, with an unbelievably nice and motivated team whom it was always a pleasure to visit and party with. But not only did I greatly benefit from the social life offered in Zhuhai, if you are a little dedicated to actually learn some serious Mandarin there, I can only tell you this: after less than three Months I was able to haggle any price like a local while being constantly asked, why I look so much like a foreigner ;)

What would you improve about this program?
This program gave me everything I could have wished for and more. The only thing I could have done to improve the experience would have been staying for a longer time.

Internship in Zhuhai

I completed two engineering internships in Zhuhai, one in a German company and one in a Chinese company. It was a great expereience to see the difference between these two cultures doing business. Btw Zhuhai is a nice city with an awesome beach and islands around, also beautiful sceneries and big citys like Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Hong Kong and Macau are not far away.

InternChina:
I heard many horrible things about internship agencies, but InternChina is not one of these. They offered the whole time - 24 hours a day a great service with many activieties like dinner or trips to nice sceneries on weekend. Also the apartments are nice and clean. I made great friends with people from all over the world.

It was actually the best experience in my life!

What would you improve about this program?
It is hard to find some points to improve, the service is perfect. But the price is a little too high for normal students. Maybe some more cultural activities.

Serious but fun agency

I had already found a company for my internship when I contacted Internchina. They helped me to get my visa and provided good advice for accommodation (I decided to find it by myself).

Their offer will suit anyone who wants to get some work experience in China without worrying too much about the paper work and apartment search.

Prices are quite high but I guess if you want to intern in China you don't really have the choice (you basically have to go through agencies like this). At least the team behind it is nice, serious and always available. They also organize all kind of events during the week (dinner, visits, activities...) which is a great.

I cannot give any feedback on the internships they offer since I found mine before I contacted them. The other interns I met never complained though.

What would you improve about this program?
As a student I would say they may want to lower their prices...

A great opportunity I will never forget

I have interned both in Chengdu and in Qingdao, getting to know both cities and making friends from all over the world. Both of which are cities I would happily live in for longer if I could!

Working here has not always been easy, but other the IC staff have been so kind in their support to me and it has given me a fantastic chance to grow professionally.

Not only have I learned a lot about many different aspects of conducting business in China but I have also managed to improve my spoken Chinese.

Homestay with Internchina

In 2009 InternChina arranged a home stay with a Chinese family in Qingdao for me. It was the best time in my life, homemade Chinese food and practicing Mandarin Chinese outside the classroom.
I've met plenty of like minded people: other foreign students who were interested in learning about the Chinese culture and Chinese people learning about western culture and introducing their country to us.

The Internchina staff was friendly and very helpful, whenever I had some communication problems with my family they Would explain me more about Chinese culture or jump in for me and talk to them directly. I always felt well taken care of!

After this amazing time, I returned in 2011 and stayed another three years in China! Way to go, InternChina!
