From the minute I landed, to my last day in the office I can’t really describe how amazing Shanghai really is. TIC TWO was definitely the right choice for me, my internship went very well and I am leaving behind people who grew to appreciate having me around and treated me like a member of staff.
From day one I was offered the opportunity to expand my network and build up on my skills and knowledge. I always believed in creating opportunities in life and that was the primary reason I chose to come to Shanghai with TWO TWO.
The apartment I stayed at, with two other interns, exceeded my expectations; it is a very spacious and well kept, well equipped unit. My flat mates are cool guys and we had a great time exploring Shanghai for what it really is. I learnt a lot from them about their line of work and we always shared our encounters over dinner or a drink at the end of our working day. Our survival Mandarin lessons were actually very useful and with time you see yourself picking up words and phrases as you go along.
The highlight of my time here, without a doubt, is the opportunity to meet new people and expand your knowledge in every level. My internship in Logistics, Sales and Marketing opened new doors to be explored and I was offered a job opportunity to stay in Shanghai for another six months on a paid basis. This is more than I could have imagined! So, I am going back to the UK for a short period to renew my visa and will be back in Shanghai in the next two weeks. I have already found somewhere to live and can’t wait to come back!
I definitely recommend TIC TWO, I was at the right place at the right time and this is because I believed this experience would actually make a difference, and I was right!
Coming to Shanghai has proven to be one of the best decisions I ever made!!!
