Alumni Spotlight: Waqas Ahmed

What originally inspired you to intern in China with Gi2C Group?

Waqas: Well, I've been looking for some challenging opportunities that might help me to make the right choice in my career. Since China attracts lots of attention for the past years I thought that having experience there will definitely help me to stand out and help me to expand my networks.

I've never been in Asia before so I looked in the internet for some organizations that can provide assistance. I've found a few companies helping to come to China but the one that really dragged my attention was Gi2C Group.
