Networking events were essential for me; the program didn’t disappoint!
Go Abroad China arranged for me to work at an international trade company in Shanghai where I could develop my focus on the export of Chinese manufactured goods and the associated regulations. Networking opportunities were crucial for me as my aim was to make contacts that would enable me to develop a career in this area. At the same time as fulfilling the duties required with my international trade administration internship, I was able to attend Mandarin classes at Go Abroad China and attend social events organized by GAC. I came away from my internship with an in-depth knowledge of international trade and sales, connections with potentially influential individuals, and a greatly enhanced CV, which places me exactly where I need to be for the next step in my career.
