Seeing China through the lens of Western Media makes you blind. China has a beautiful and warm culture with awesome people and above all, one of the safest countries of our time. For several reasons, my trip to China was a dream come true, because of our family connection to my adopted sister. I have learned Mandarin from age 12 but has never made it to China. I speak reasonably good mandarin with a horrible accent- this also inspired my ambition to improve. I applied for an Engineering internship in China with CIP because being a first-time visitor; I expected to hire the services of an Agency to handle all preparations. I do not like chaos. :)
I was placed with an Audi Engine Assembling Plant in Tianjin; the twin city of Bejing and Hebei. I decided to extend my stay from 3 to 7 months later in the process as I was so happy with the offer presented. It was a very competitive opportunity and took me several rounds of interview and selection process. It started with 5 of us from the CIP platform, and only 2 were selected which I happen to be one. It was reassuring as my placement coordinator assists with preparations and information for each round. On arrival, I got to know that not all Interns get through the same rigorous selection process. But hey! This is Audi; a premium organization every young Engineer will love to work. This makes my opportunity unique, and I felt I earned it.
The CIP team were on the ground, and I see them more often than I expect. A professional driver dressed in a CIP attire showed up at the airport to pick me up to my accommodation, then life started in China.
I was not too critical of other services as I prioritize my experience as 80% of the expectation. I had few trips to Xian to visit the terracotta warriors; I also had short travels along the silk road which is at the center of China's One Belt One Road initiative as well as the future of China. It was a fantastic experience I won't trade for other.
The program is good, and the CIP team have no illusions of how to serve Interns well. They will take time to explain what they provide; then you decide whether it is a good deal. The satisfaction commensurates the fees.

CIP is an excellent organization with deep empathy towards their clients. I had few free services to augment my experience, and I am grateful to Alfred, Joanna, Heidy, Lewis and especially Iris.
I promised them I will be back in 2019 and I mean it. "Zai Jian"

I have been part of the CIP Engineering Internship through my University Portal. I have visited China at several opportunities and my Chinese proficiency is intermediate. I felt I need an agency or a platform that can organize the facets of my internship so I spoke with my career adviser who introduced me to CIP Program.
The placement process was smooth and I secured an Internship Opportunity with a European Engineering Company. I was there as a Project Engineering Intern; a role I like so much. The Company deals with Institutional clients like Airbus, Boeing Benz, Audi, and BMW.
I was tasked to assist the sales team to coordinate the technical evaluation of client experience using our proprietary technologies in Auto and Aviation industry. I also participated in evaluating project feasibility and analysis.
The most challenging part of my internship is keeping an eye on Project delivery and timelines using various software and systems. For the months that I interned with them, my colleagues relied on my intuition which brings so much pressure to bear. My communication skills were key to a successful internship
I was also able to learn Technical Mandarin Vocabularies related to my industry which is a step in the right direction
I am very thankful to the CIP team for being there at the onset. CIP created a very friendly atmosphere for all participants. The Business Networking and weekend trips were right on point :)
My Mentor was awesome making sure I am prepared for the Job market.
I selected CIP because of the uniqueness of their programs and the fact that they were on top of issues. I will recommend CIP to all Interns considering China.

What would you improve about this program?
I think CIP is heading towards the right direction given the program components.

Sustaining the environment for the future generation is a major concern to everyone. After spending 12 weeks I am even more convinced that China is the place to be if you want to contribute improving the environment. I loved my work and everything in China.
My role was basically about Compliance. Providing support to the development and coordination of training programs in support of the set standard.
Working with a construction company, I assisted my supervisor with maintaining the Site Preparedness and Emergency Plans & Procedures, support coordinating regulatory programs and its applications and help support the compliance process, supporting and providing relief for the environmental department and other related environmental support tasks.
Thank you China for this incredible life opportunity.

Response from China Internship Placements

I highly recommend internship in China for their outstanding services rendering to young graduates and mankind as a whole. I never thought I would acquire so much career knowledge at this early stage in life. But, CIP and China had made it possible.
During my internship I learned many skills among which includes - e-mail marketing campaign development & implementation, assist my immediate supervisor in updating main website (uploading photos etc), building digital marketing profile via Google, SEO, performing advanced internet research and learning new e-commerce strategies.
The internship program was well organized, productive and fun (in terms of parties and historic sightseeing).

When I was first introduced to Internship in China by friends, I kept asking myself while China. Because, I had U.K in mind. But upon further research online, I was convinced that China through CIP can add value to my chosen industry.
Immediately, I applied and had tremendous support from CIP during my visa processing.
I arrived safety and began my internship with an architectural company based in Beijing. I was attached to a dedicated supervisor who taught me all the basic (key) responsibilities of an architect. My daily routine jobs were assisting the streamlining of the architectural design process from conceptual design through overall completion of projects, participate in the architectural design process and develop alternative solutions and presentation graphics used to communicate concepts to the client or for agency approval, scan, copy, print, and transmit original working drawings of current projects, organize and maintain project files.
The best part of the whole program was the inter-personnel relations I had with staff and fellow interns (students).
It was great to be part of the program. Thank you.

What would you improve about this program?
more traveling on the job.

Why did you choose this program?

My decision to select CIP was that of a rescue mission and their willingness to help when I was in trouble. I got to understand that the entire team at CIP are genuinely on a mission to change lives.

I initially arrived in China through a different organization, which promised so much but messed me up. I found CIP in Shanghai after a short search, and they helped cut my losses. In a very desperate and despaired situation, they offered me an internship at a little or even no cost. I remember reviewing them on the leading blogs and news outlets and even recommending them to my university.

The real story is in one of my reviews on this platform, and anyone who cares to know could search it up. I will recommend them to anyone who is looking for real internship experience in China. CIP offers an outstanding program combined with career coaching and mentoring.

The relevance of the career coaching is that you get to experience real, personalized, one-on-one career consultation. It was an eye opening exposure! I have interned abroad in 5 different countries but nothing close to them. I get very emotional anytime I talk about their service because it gave me hope that there still some good people out there that still have values and are guided by sound business principles

What did your program provider assist you with, and what did you have to organize on your own?

Aside from the Internship placement, CIP Helped with arranging an accommodation close my company, they offered insurance, relocated me from my previous apartment and also assisted with city orientation, Chinese language immersion, and more.

What is one piece of advice you'd give to someone going on your program?

Considering interning in China? Always make sure you go to the right agency. Speak with the organizations before paying any cash to the team (exactly what CIP does) and read a little about the platform before selecting.

Never ignore an opportunity to intern in China; it looks great on your CV and also offers you exposure into Jobs market in Shanghai. Keep an open mind, ignore the cultural nuances and stick firmly to your mission. Always look out for organizations that have after-Internship-services. Agencies that continue to support participants after the program are likely to have good systems.

What does an average day/week look like as a participant of this program?

This is an interesting question. I love to work, and I work over time! I spend almost 10 hours each day (Monday to Friday) working. I imposed these strict schedules on myself as I felt there were so much I should learn before my internship ends. I worked with top profiled Accountants and Auditors from across the globe on projects.

As part of my Job description, my responsibilities were to assist Overseas Operations Department research about Environmental Factors in the US prior to going abroad. I also participated in constructing financial analysis and company evaluations. Analyzing the health of an organization through business analytics was at the center of the skills I acquired.

I spent part of my day learning Chinese language and also interacting with the locals. I can write over 1,000 Chinese Characters which makes me proud. Weekends are for fun and exploring the city life. I party and grab few bottles of cold beer with some friends.

Going into your experience abroad, what was your biggest fear, and how did you overcome it? How did your views on the issue change?

I have been to so many places, on adventure travels and also been through some terrible situations. In comparison, coming to China was not a scary moment. It's a beautiful country with very fantastic people.

What position do you hold at China Internship Placements? What has been your career path so far?

female headshot

I am Assistant Operations Manager. My role at CIP is making sure there are enough logistics, Personnel and systems to handle demand for our internship programs. I am more like into general management. Like jack of all trade.

What does the future hold for China Internship Placements - any exciting new programs to share?

China Internship Placements Has more exciting programs for offering and updates in 2016. Our latest developments will come in series of enhancing value addition process of all applicants as well as non-applicants. We want to impact as many lives as possible. Then we will also add job search services for our participants in China.

What about the future of the industry? How do you think intern abroad and international education will change over the next 10 years?

Just as the job sector is evolving, CIP is also always adapting to make sure our programs add values to keep our participants ahead of competition. I am seeing the industry changing so sharp within the next 10 years with reducing profit margin and stiffer competition based on signals we are getting. More young people would like to be more entrepreneurial and collaborative so they are independent of formal working environment. They will no more demand to work with organizations to boost their resume and profile rather, they would demand to work with startups and build relationships.

When that time comes, developing countries with massive startups and market with favorable environments. China certainly will be in demand for long. So you will see the entrepreneurial content in our program and it will reach full potential in the next 3 years.

What do you believe to be the biggest factor in being a successful company?

We are a listening organization and we factor recommendations from stakeholders into our product design. We concentrate on building solid relationships to consolidate our source of demand. We survived over 5 years without online marketing and so coming alive on the internet, it’s just an added advantage.

Why is language learning and cultural immersion important to you?

This is not an option at all!! MY advice to upcoming young executives is to seek first cultural immersion and learn more language and all others will fall in place.

How have you changed/grown since working for your current company?

I will not have been pretty knowledgeable without CIP. The development process has been accumulating year on year. The training, exposure, the people, the network and anything you can think about including the motivation brings the best out of me. CIP had created room for all manner of people and with pretty much defined career progression goal. We even have engineers and other very technical skilled personnel working here.

What unique qualities does your company possess?

For the past few years, CIP was defined by the entrepreneurial internships, coaching and mentoring which appeals so much to our participants. So during our nomination for Deloitte awards, I did recollect the panel described CIP as “combine all other Agencies and Add CIP you get the definition of 21st century internship”. This is what we live for each day and we strive for it.
