Highly recommended!

10/10

Before I come to China I was so frustrated, and I contacted with several internships in china provides, after I compare with the services and the prices, I decided to choose Go abroad China. I had lots of problems and fears in the beginning: Will I like the food? How will my internship be? How are the people in China? Can I find friends? Can I learn the language?
Go Abroad China one of the program assistants named Nadia helped me a lot. Right after I applied on the website, I got contacted by a program coordinator from the GAC and she guided me through every step on the way and she will continue to do so until I return back home.

I decided to do an internship from Jan 2017 to May 2017. After I applied, I got had an interview with GAC and with my CV, I got matched with an internship which matches my interest and my skillset at a finance company named AR Capital.

A couple of weeks after that I had the interview with the HR of my internship company. As soon I got accepted, GAC helped me with the preparation for the trip like the pre-departure and helped me got my visa also with my apartment in China. Everything went through very smooth and soon after that I started my trip to Shanghai.

I arrived Saturday morning and i took a rest for the first day, then on Sunday the program assistant Robert came to my place gave an orientation and set up everything here for me…he explained to me the Chinese culture, the food and the city itself, my first week was truly awful. I felt like quitting many times, was always tired, did not want to eat anything, and could not really get work done. But every time when I called him, he is always here to help me.

After I survived the first week though, things just got better every week. Not only because I got used to everything, During the weekend, I start to meet other participants from GAC, they are very nice to me and we always hang out together.

If you have any problems or concerns, you can also contact people from GAC– it really does not matter what kind of problems – and you will get help very fast. Chinese problems? Problems in the apartment? Problems in the job? Everything will get sorted out.

For my internship program. It really depends on your luck and on yourself. It definitely takes time to adapt to the Chinese working mentality, but it really can benefit you as a person for the future. I can only recommend you to do an internship with Go Abroad China !

How can this program be improved?

Experience in an intenrational law firm

8/10

When I think about my internship in China with Go Abroad China Internship program, one word comes to my mind: lucky.

I am a first year law student in United States and had never had a working experience before.

I was placed at the top 1 law firm and my supervisor was kind to me and was open to answer to each and every one of my questions. He believed I was dependable and trusted my work and instinct. I was given more challenging tasks as the days went by and even got to interview a client myself on the spot, with no preparation beforehand.
I felt fulfilled and grateful for the opportunity that Go Abroad China found for me.

Regarding to the accommodation I was provided was central and close to my internship company but most importantly my host family were super nice to me, every weekend we have plans to do something together such as BBQ, hiking, visit his realities and learned lots of Chinese culture. I never felt alone both thanks to the GAC customer service department organizes social events and visited the tourisms. I definitely recommend using their services!

School was at an appropriate pace and the content of what we learnt could be applied to daily situations which was effective for practising Mandarin.

my internship with GAC

8/10

Overall I enjoyed my experience with GAC. I was pleased with the amount of knowledge I learned and the new experiences I went through during my internship as a financial analyst at a finance company which GAC found on my behalf. The internship made me realize how fast things move in the finance industry and I feel it has prepared me well for the transition from university to the work force. The diversity of the work I completed made me realize my capabilities and had me further develop my skillet, and consolidated my interest in the industry. The networking opportunities to work alongside partners and analysts from different backgrounds will no doubt accelerate my career. In the future I would like to undertake another internship before I officially commence my professional career.
GAC also organised activities throughout my time in China, and provided valuable assistance when required.

Beware of GAC

1/10

I did not have a positive experience with GAC. They take your currency in exchange for a bad program. Have you ever stopped and wondered WHY you have to PAY a ton for an internship?! It doesn't make sense right? Because it's not!

-The visa regulations in China are ambiguous so I was uncomfortable coming in on a tourist visa as I was advised to do by GAC.
-The apartments are cheap in China, so most of your money doesn't go there.
-They say they have a large network of companies to choose from but I have seen them posting personal documents, sometimes of student's passports, on WeChat professional sites, which is very dangerous.
-Most of the internships are useless and don't have much work for you. Most of us were literally just sitting around all day. Most of them aren't even paid!

Find a Chinese professionals page online. You're better off getting in touch with actual working professionals in China who are foreigners instead of native born Chinese people who are out to take all of your hard-earned money.
