Amaizing experience

Before to start my internship in China I had a lot of doubts about this country. It was been amazing for me discover this wonderful country, my integration in the chines' environment was very fast and I do a lot of friends (local and foreign). In my work the conditions was been very professional and the staff was been very nice.
It is important to mention that my biggest problem in china was been the communication because most part of Chinese people don't speak English, but always the people try to so its best to help you.
Definitely I recommend this kind of programs, nowadays I'm feeling very happy to have been part of this program.

How can this program be improved?

Internship at Amicorp in Chengdu

I have concluded a 3-months long internship at a consulting company in Chengdu and I have gained both professional and personal experience. Overall, I very much enjoyed my time in China and enhanced my knowledge in various fields. I have gained insight in the operations of a financial service company and into the Chinese business enviornment. Furthermore, I could discover an amazingly beautiful country and its friendly people. Through this internship I have gained new know-how on how to interact with people from different backgrounds and learned more about my strenght and weaknesses. The level of English of my collegues was unfortunately not very good, which led to some misunderstandings. But they were very supportive and welcoming. My main tasks were to do reserach, preparing presentations, and editing fee schedules. I have worked with six other people, among three other interns. The working environment was very relaxed and I worked from Monday to Friday, from 9:30 am to 6:00 pm. I was not very satisified with the office space, because it was very small and I had to bring my own laptop. Luckily, the agency gave me the contact of a french girl who also did an internship in Chengdu and we could share an appartment. On the weekend I tried to explore the country and I could visit Beijing, Shanghai and places in Sichuan province. Furthermore, I could learn some Chinese as only a few people speak English there. The biggest adjustments were definetly the air pollution, the traffic and the (spicy) food, however, I would not want to miss this experience and I would definetly go to Chengdu again. I very much enjoyed my time in China and the amazing people I have met there and the agency was a big support during my time!

My time in Chengdu, China

I wrote my thesis at a company in Chengdu that makes mobile apps and developes business strategies. A very cool, small and project based company, that allowed me to do exactly what I always liked to do.

Chengdu is a wonderful city that will put you on the edge of your seat for many reasons. If it's not the buzzling traffic or crazy rush hour subway commuters, it must be the joy of screaming some oldies out loud in kareoke or trying to find your way around Tianfu Square. The local agency here brings you in touch with all other foreign interns, so you always have English-speaking friends with experience around you, but do not for one minute think you'll get around without interacting with the Chinese to some extent.

Chengdu is less international based, even though there is a distinct foreign community. If you want to experience the more Chinese China, try this city.

How can this program be improved?
More support in finding right accommodation the first time. I had to move in the first week because my room mate was just too dirty.

Living Chengdu

My experience working in a hotel in Chengdu city is being really amazing. It's a very good oportunity to grow up personally and professionally, you have the chance to learn faster the Chinese language, since in this city not everyone speaks good english. It's interesting to know about their culture, lifestyle and gastronomy. Chengdu is one of the safest cities in China, and many good hotels are opening here. The people is always ready to help, very nice and respectful. And if you like the spicy food, here is your place. :)

Great experience!

I haven't thought a lot before deciding to come to China. It just happened over night, and I think it was the best decision of my life, so far. From a professional point of view, I've had the chance to experience a lot; I've been through different departments including Front Desk, Marketing and Sales, PR, Food and Beverage, which makes my internship a lot more interesting and fun. Of course, the language would always be a challenge, not too many locals speak English, but it just completes this amazing experience. Finding ways of dealing with it, adapting to their culture and exploring as much as I can; this is definitely a life changing experience for me. I really love the city, except for the air quality which can definitely be improved, it is pretty much awesome. And the food is absolutely amazing! There's always something going on in the city, you can never get bored. So many things to do, I feel like the time is flying. I'm pretty much sure that I will come back here someday.

How can this program be improved?
I wish I could have seen some pictures of the accommodation provided before saying yes to it. I though I was going to have a good place to stay, but I ended up paying a pretty high rent for the place that I like and I chose to live in.
