In a world that is becoming increasingly inter-dependent, it would be a crime to pass up an opportunity to experience diversity at its finest. I feel that this internship has given me the competitive edge to thrive in a depressing economic society. I learned how working collectively is just as fundamentally important as working individually. I developed extensive market research techniques and methods that are dynamically feasible in any industry. I strengthened my sense of leadership by crafting the initial stages for a new organization within my company. Not to mention, I’ve developed long lasting friendships from across the world.
Easily, the most enjoyable part of my experience was comparing life stories with colleagues while discovering many types of delicious Chinese food and exploring Beijing.
No other internship experience that I’ve participated has left me with a great sense of inter-cultural awareness and that has prepared me for a graduate program and career in communications. My internship experience in China proves to be invaluable since the skills that I’ve acquired are intangible to my competitors and exclusive to my knowledge.
The sagacious thing about CRCC internships is that you’re surrounded by diverse students from all over the world in a beautiful city that welcomes visitors of all kinds. After completing my internship, I feel a greater connection to the world at large and equipped to enter a world of diverse magnitude.
