CCTV London explores the consistently increasing influx of international students to China who pursue internships in hopes of gaining professional and academic edge in their careers.
Two Britons who spotted an opportunity to capitalise on the rising demand for international skills have organised more than 5,000 internships in China and are set to turn over more than £3.5 million this year.
Ed Holroyd Pearce and Dan Nivern, who met while studying at The University of London’s School of Oriental and African Studies, expect to have 2,000 students on their internship programme this year, compared with 200 in 2009.
Over the past decade, 33-year-old entrepreneurs Ed Holroyd Pearce and Dan Nivern have been building up their China-focused internship business, CRCC Asia, placing graduates from 150 countries with big corporates in Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzen and now Hong Kong.
"Michael Benson, Asia Pacific regional manager for CRCC Asia, said: ‘’We are definitely seeing strong interest in our programmes from British students who are realising there is a growing economic connection between the UK and China. Financial, business and engineering sectors are certainly the most popular among interns.’’"
"For ambitious young students like Van Dyke, summers spent on the beach don’t cut it anymore, and this trend will continue, says CRCC Asia’s Pearce. “Students can’t take a summer vacation or get a job at the local bar,” he adds. “They have to make themselves global citizens.”"
"… CRCC Asia, which works in Chinese consultancy and recruitment, insists all participants attend an intensive and educational induction day. On their first full day in China, they explore these cultural concepts, and in doing so how – at an introductory level – to successfully navigate the choppy waters of Chinese business etiquette."
"It's a sign that British entrepreneurs are becoming more adept at building relationships in the Far East. Edward Holroyd Pearce, a director at CRCC Asia, offers ten tips to help UK exporters make the most of Chinese markets."
"Daniel Nivern, director of CRCC Asia – the organization that facilitated Alex and Utsav’s internships – co-founded his company with that exact goal in mind: to allow students and graduates from around the world to gain international experience in China’s dynamic business environment, thrive professionally in a global setting, and generally broaden their horizons."
"James Critelli knew only five words of Mandarin, but he didn’t let that stop him from applying last year for a summer internship in China, a country that’s fascinated him since he accompanied his father there on a business trip as a child."
"And he's not the only one to have spotted the competitive advantage work experience in China may bring. Applications for internships there have more than tripled over the past couple of years, according to figures released by CRCC Asia, a London-based recruitment consultancy."
"Sending young Brits on internships to China has become a booming business for CRCC Asia. The company was originally formed to improve business links between the UK and China. Now, though, setting up work experience placements is a key part of its work."
"Jamie Foster, 24, is a UK graduate working in Beijing, China. Having obtained a history and Chinese degree from Nottingham University, followed by a business master's from the School of Oriental and Asian Studies, he admits he "always had an eye on China", but his lack of success job hunting in the UK hastened his passage east."
"Youth unemployment is so high in the UK that thousands of new graduates are considering going abroad to find work rather than join the dole queue. Hundreds have already headed to countries like China and India to gain more skills which enhance their CVs."
