“Studio alla Cà Foscari a Venezia e ho partecipato al programma di CRCC Asia nel mese di febbraio. Le lezioni erano quattro ore mattutine suddivise in lingua parlata e comprensione con sue differenti professori, siamo stati inseriti in classi a seconda del nostro livello e io ero in classe solo con un altra ragazza.Al mio arrivo non ero da sola ma ero già integrata in un gruppo inetrnazionale di ragazzi con cui mantengo ancora i rapporti.”
“Le mie impressioni su questo stage sono molto positive prima di tutto perché è un’esperienza di lavoro che mi sta permettendo di migliorare le mie skill in questo tipo di business e anche perché comunque va a incrementare il mio curriculum per il prossimo step lavorativo.
Devo dire grazie a CRCC Asia perché mi ha dato l’opportunità di fare tutto ciò, grazie a questo internship ho avuto la possibilità di conoscere ottimi professionisti in quest’ambito del business e anche molte persone valide che mi hanno accompagnato in quest’avventura.”
“Lavoro presso un’azienda di consulenza, attualmente svolgo il ruolo di consulente per lo sviluppo di progetti e anche per la gestione delle risorse umane.
Grazie a CRCC Asia io ho potuto trovare questo lavoro e il luogo di lavoro ovviamente mi consente di fare un’esperienza lavorativa a livello internazionale.”
My internship in Manchester is going great so far. The atmosphere in the office has been awesome and I’m getting along very well with everyone at my media host company. I’m enjoying the fact that the company (and therefore the office) is small, so it’s been very easy to make a large and positive contribution to as we prepare for an app to go live in the app store this weekend. I’ve been able to assist in a lot of the business development side of things and help with venue acquisition to branch out to other parts of the UK. The company have been so helpful in me finding my way not only at the company but in Manchester as well and they’ve made it very easy to feel comfortable here.
In terms of Manchester, I’m loving the city. It’s a bummer that the rain just started coming now but the fact that we saw almost a month of consistent sunshine was lovely! People are so friendly here and I’ve had the best experiences meeting locals and exchanging info and just making the most of the experience. That’s been one of my favorite parts of this summer: engaging with the local Mancunians and learning about their upbringing and experiences has been so beneficial in my growth as a person. It’s definitely maturing me and I know for a fact I will have a different outlook on things when I go back home, all in a good way.
Lastly, I think one of the best things about this experience so far is the group. It amazes me how fast we’ve become so close with each other and everyone is so friendly and fun. That has definitely played the biggest role in making this such a fun program and I’m so happy we are all together.
Thanks so much for CRCC Asia’s help this past month, you guys do a really amazing job making us feel so comfortable and confident here. It’s been great getting to know the team and it’s making me want to look into work opportunities with CRCC Asia after uni! Glad we’re just only halfway there!
“Ciao a tutti, sono Angela Costella, studio all’ università Ca’ Foscari di Venezia e sono venuta a Pechino per poter migliorare il mio cinese. Il corso intensivo di cinese di CRCC Asia è strutturato in modo ideale: la mia classe, per esempio, è composta da solo 6 studenti, e ciò ci permette di poter interagire continuamente con l’insegnante e tra di noi, di fare continua conversazione e imparare molto velocemente.
Inoltre l’insegnate parla benissimo inglese, utile nel caso in cui non capissimo qualche struttura grammaticale particolare. Ho scelto di partire con CRCC Asia anche perchè è un programma internazionale e ciò fa’si che ci si confronti 24 ore su 24 con interns provenienti da ogni parte del mondo, si apprendano continuamente cose nuove e si parli sempre inglese, il modo migliore per poterlo affinare.”
“Ciao a tutti, mi chiamo Luca Buonaccorsi e sto facendo uno stage a Hong Kong con CRCC Asia nel settore Hospitality per un periodo di tre mesi. In Italia studio presso l’Università degli Studi di Pisa.”
I gained so much knowledge and life experience being part of the Internship in Shanghai through CRCC Asia. I always dreamed of coming to China and I started studying Chinese in high school. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to combine my travel in China with a professional internship program that gave me depth and knowledge about Chinese business.
I worked for a blockchain company founded in China. Specifically, I worked on a start-up AI/blockchain project providing verification and authorization technologies for the second-hand luxury goods market. I worked on a variety of projects including writing use cases, researching and writing media publications, providing analysis for the financial token sale, meeting with investors and team members, and working closely with marketing/social media channels.
I worked directly under CMO and Co-Founder, who taught me so much about Chinese business and skills for success. I had a fantastic experience at my host company and developed what I know will be lasting relationships with my co-workers. I developed an advanced skill set I can apply to future jobs including problem solving, business and data analysis, communication, and writing skills.
In addition to my work experience in Shanghai, I took advantage of the opportunity to travel and explore China. I visited several highlights around Shanghai and took several weekend trips outside of the city. I took the high-speed train to Beijing, flew to Xi’an, and took the train to Suzhou, Zhouzhuang, Hangzhou, Nanjing, and Zhuji. Each trip was amazing and expanded my cultural and world knowledge. I did my own research and preparation (including finding hotels, trains, flights, tours, restaurants etc.) and mainly traveled by myself to all these sites.
Navigating a city or new culture by myself was a little scary at first but became a new norm and exciting experience. I gained a significant amount of self-confidence and awareness from my travels. I stepped outside of my comfort zone to interact with those I would not have before, navigated foreign places, and had things not always go my way.
All my trips were incredibly rewarding experiences and I would not have done anything differently! Some of my favorite memories were a City Wall bike ride and viewing the Terracotta Warriors in Xi’an, going to Shanghai Disneyland (2 times!), a canal boat ride in Zhouzhuang, walking along the Great Wall in Beijing, and seeing the Songcheng Romantic Show in Hangzhou. The friendly and knowledgeable staff at CRCC was always available to provide advice on travel plans or any and every question I sent their way!
I highly recommend this type of program for anyone interested in experiencing China while gaining cultural immersion in the workplace. Of course, it was a little nerve wracking to arrive in a foreign place and experience a new living situation, new food, new people, and a foreign culture and language. My advice is to take advantage of seeing as many new things as you can and meet many new people. Just say “yes” to new experiences and don’t look back!
“Creo que el impacto de trabajar aquí en China va a ser muy positivo. Venir a un continente como Asia y conocer su gente y su cultura te da un punto de diferenciación con respecto a las personas que no han vivido este tipo de experiencia. El ambiente aquí es de buen rollo y colegueo. Voy a echar de menos a mis compañeros de prácticas. Una de las cosas que más me gustan del programa de CRCC Asia es la posibilidad de conocer gente de diferentes partes del mundo. También me parecen muy interesantes las actividades culturales y de caridad que organizan todas las semanas.”
