As our economy relies more and more on global entities, it is no surprise that students are flocking abroad to gain more relevant experience for future career alignment. Since China’s switch to capitalism, the country has become the world’s second-largest economy.
To stay competitive in a new generation of the global workforce, CRCC Asia encourages students to embark on new opportunities by interning abroad. You may be asking yourself: is this the right move for me? What types of skills will I gain abroad to help me after I graduate? Though CRCC Asia specializes in providing internships in 14 professional sectors, our co-founder, Edward Holroyd-Pearce notes that “It’s really about the cultural exposure and the confidence and the soft-skills that brings” and that “There’s also a lot of industry-specific knowledge in China that they can learn.”
