Review-Shanghai internship

It is a good experience for me to participate in this summer internship program. And it is an opportunity for me to intern in two different companies in different industries. One is Huaxia Finance in the financial industry, and another one is Jingdigital for marketing tasks. In JINGdigital, I learned the general operation about the marketing department, and study some marketing knowledge, especially in content marketing and marketing automation. Otherwise, I am being given so much responsibility and room to grow. And interns are treated like any other employees in the company and allows you to understand the role of full-time employees. Nice experience.

Internship Program

The internship has been a month. Open communication was one of the strongest and most apparent skills that I learned during my internship. When I first started interning, I was intimidated and nervous to ask too many questions because I didn’t want to admit that I didn’t understand or that I needed extra help with something. Luckily I got over that fear quickly because asking questions is the only way to learn what you are really supposed to be doing. I found that my boss and fellow staff members appreciated it more if I asked too many questions to make sure I really understood what it was doing and that I did it correctly. If I had not worked with such cooperative and helpful people, I probably would have been too intimidated to ask questions in my next job. Now that I know it is not bad to ask questions, I won’t have to struggle with it in my future job. Without open communication between everyone in an office, I don’t see how any work can be done.

I am very grateful to the internship unit for providing me with such a good internship opportunity. Through this, I have definitely gained valuable work experience, and grew as an individual.

What was the most surprising thing you saw or did?
Actually before the internship, I feel worried for my hotel. Because compare the study tour we are not good. But not bad when I lived in. It's amazing.

This six week intership program will soon come to an end. During this program, I have learned a lot from my mentor. Before I take this intern, I know nothing about this industry. I'm really nervous because I haven't got too much professional knowledge about PR. But after I worked in the company for a week, I gradually understood the work of PR industry and also met many lovely colleagues. Although I didn't have a lot of chances to fully put what I have learned from the class into practice, the experience in this brand-new team is important and memorable. This internship is just the first step for my future career. No matter whether I will work in the same industry in the future, what I have seen and heard in this company and all the projects I have participated in will be a valuable experience for me.

My company is a young tech start-up focusing on AI chips with a young workforce. Although the scale is not large, the work content is quite rich, especially about the Chinese artificial intelligence market, which makes me have a deeper understanding, which also makes me more and more interested in this field. Recently, I also learned more about the industry through attending some science and technology innovation exhibitions as an exhibitor and felt the atmosphere of creative city, Shenzhen.

Moreover, the conversation with my supervisor also impressed me a lot, she told me that some details in your performance or attitude will be critical for your future. In short, this internship helped me understand the operation mode and daily work of start-up companies, so it was very helpful to me.

Shenzhen internship

How time flies! This internship is nearing its end. During this six weeks’ studying and working, I feel I have learned some practical skills about company analysis and financial industry which will be helpful for my future career life. In the past, I have acquired some economic knowledge, but I have no opportunity to apply it to the work. This time, by this internship programme, I have a chance to apply what I have learned to solve practical problems and accumulate working experience. As a rookie in the workplace, this internship is the first step to start my career and it makes me know how to behave in the working environment.

All in all, I am so glad to have this internship experience and I really learned a lot by this internship. I hope this program will help more students in the future.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Prepare for it and make a pre-study of what you will do.

During this time, I learned a lot of things that I couldn't learn at school, and I realized a lot of my own shortcomings. The following is a summary of my work during the internship and some of my own experiences.For me, the internship gives me more opportunities to try different jobs and play different social roles. Through the internship I found my true potential and interest, which helped me to define my future career direction. As a student, I believe that the purpose of learning is to acquire knowledge and acquire work skills. In other words, to study at school is to be able to adapt to the needs of society. Through learning, we can ensure that we can accomplish future work and contribute to society. It is a blessing for me to be able to enter the company as an internship to adapt to the society. I understand the actual needs of the work through the internship and make the purpose of learning more clear.
