Great internship

MTA helped me get an internship quickly and got me from England to China and helped me with the transition and all the documents and things I would need. They are a great team and helped me along the way, offering airport pick ups and even sending me a birthday cake on my birthday. I had a great experience during my internship overall and all the employees there were nice and welcoming. The city Qingdao was beautiful with lots to see and activities to do. Would recommend to people wanting to travel.

Live a new exciting experience

If you want to live China at it's fullist, and also meet people from all around the world, then you should defineatly try an internship with MTA. The staff are great, they make sure your stay in Qingdao goes smoothly while acclimatising to your new expat life. They also organise a lot of fun events, and they will help you with anything that might arise during your stay and while working at your Chinese company. Also, Qingdao is an ideal city to live in if it's your first time in China. It has beautiful mountains and beaches, great nightlife, lovely local people and delicious food.

MTA Internship in Finance

Most importantly, I was able to experience living in China not just travelling. This means a lot to someone who is trying to become fluent in the Language and wants to interact more with locals. This internship gave me the opportunity to integrate with the culture more, while improving my professional prospects through an internship in my field of interest (Finance).
I recommend it to anyone looking to improve their language skills, gain some professional experience, and meet people from different countries.
It is also great for travelling as the internships allow you to travel quite often, it is also easy to find people to travel with as you will be meeting other foreign interns.
There are frequent social events where you can have fun with other interns and explore some nice places in Qingdao.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Make sure to research your internship before you arrive so it meets your expectations.
Make sure you are ready to be in a totally different culture than the West, and be open minded about learning the language and the culture.

Job opportunity in Nanjing during 6 moths

MTA Networks helped me find an internship during 6 months in Nanjing. I worked as an overseas sales in a Trading Company in the clothing industry. Basically was constantly in relation with international clients and chinese factories.
It was th ebest experience I had so far. Now that I'm back in Paris I'm working on my own project, I can now have my own brand of clothes thanks to the experience I had with this internship.

Btw this China is where I developped a passion for photography, you can see some pictures i took from China on my instagram @french_cameradude
China is a dream place for photography.

Anyway you can trust MTA Networks to make you live a unique experience they have opportunities in export, finance, marketing, just name it. I recommend you have an interview with them to tell them what's on your mind and they will be likely to help you.

What was the most unfamiliar thing you ate?
I tried everything in China including pig's brain and turtle soup. Sometimes we can have some good surprises, for example some chicken feet are really delicious. I would recommend to anyone going to Chna to be open minded and be a "Yes person", stop saying no and try, experience and make your own opinion.

I was a student and looking for an opportunity in China which could both give me some working experience and Chinese skills, which could possibily be affordable for my student pocket you know...
I found MTA, which was providing paid internships with the possibility of having all your visa expenses covered, together with your living and, if you were lucky, with the possibility of gaining a profit. I tried it on, with very low expectations, given the cost and everything else.
It turned out to be a great agency (still young and always trying to improve). They were always there for me whenever I needed help.
The internship I got was ok, I guess... I mean, I came here with no knowledge whatsoever about working in a company... So everything I learned was a plus for me. My suggestion is: don't complain about your job and be always up for something else to do. From my experience, I can say it worked! I started there as a mere translator from english to italian and in the end I learned some basic knowledge about SEO, I uploaded new products and content on the Italian and French website (translating also into French), together with taking care of the social medias and helping with the customer service too.

What would you improve about this program?
The communication, probably... I guess it's just cultural difference and once I understood it I never had issues with it.
Oh... and I'd try and figure out the money change at the end of the internship. I've already told the agency about that, though and I am sure they'll find a solution soon.

Incredible China

Working for MTA Network has been a great opportunity for me. The team is very dynamic and supporting. They always helped me in various things. I learned a lot about china with the help of my Chinese colleagues. I also experienced the cultures of other countries as the team is international. I would like to thank mta network for providing me the opportunity and also giving me the best memories of my life.
I would recommend MTA Network because these people are professional and right from the beginning till coming to china, they make the process smooth and easy. Even during the internship MTA is always with their intern. I will be missing the experience that i had in Qingdao and hope to come again someday.
Choose MTA Network for one of a life time experience😊

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
My Advice for the future travelers will be that be ready for an amazing experience. Both professionally and culturally. China can be a place of lots of shocking things of course but it's a beautiful country with beautiful people.

Discover the Chinese corporate world

I'm French and I reaaaallly wanted to go to China to do an internship. I've been studying Chinese for years now but it's not enough. I though I needed a real life experience and internship would also teach me how to be with Chinese in the corporate world. However it is not that simple to find an internship in China in finance, my field of study. I struggled till my friend told me about MTA network. He found his internship thanks to them so I believed in it and went for it. They had one opportunity in finance so I took it. Without them it would have been so difficult or impossible to come here because China doesn't do internship so much. MTA took care of the visa papers you need to apply as a student, they have apartments in the city center for you, they come to pick you up at the airport and you can ask all of your questions when you have a problem. It is very relaxing when you arrive in a totally foreign country to have people for you!!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
China is a totally different country, you'll be surprised many time, both in a good and a bad way, but it is an experience that is so worth living through! It is incredible, you grow up so much during that time. It is really open-minding and MTA makes it possible :)

Internship in Qingdao

MTA provides an easy, quick, trustable and safe way to find an internship suitable for your interests. They do not only follow the initial process but they also care your experience is going well during the internship and you can feel supported. Their team is likely to help you with the questions you might have before and during the internship. Their social network give you the chance to meet other interns from different countries performing similar activities and having similar interests, what allow an exchange that makes the overall experience more worthy.
This internship gave me the opportunity to have a closer approach to China, a different business culture, and explore a new industry too. This will not only add value to my resume but it also gave me a good personal experience.
Finally, choosing Qingdao for doing an internship is a good choice for it is a beautiful, safe, not very crowded city, you can find the merge of mountains and sea, and a very commercial city center.
