Completing an internship in Shenzhen, China on the CRCC Asia program has been the best summer I have ever spent. On my final day of the program I reflected back on my 2 months working for Omate; a wearable technology start-up company, (which previously raised $1m on Kickstarter) and revisited in my mind with a smile, the countless new skills gained coupled with the amazing CRCC Asia interns and Chinese co-workers I can now call close friends.

I promise you will never forget your experience when reflecting back on it at home as I am now; simply because from time to time you will be reminded of it, as the person on the opposite side of the table leans their body inwards with great interest whilst scanning your CV/resume during job interviews.

Living in Shenzhen was the most enjoyable, challenging and fun two months I could possibly have asked for. It was a unique experience, from the workplace to becoming immersed into Chinese culture, and I have definitely gained valuable legal skills from working abroad in a Chinese and International firm. I worked at Dacheng Law Offices, a firm which has recently merged with Dentons, and not only gained an insight into the Chinese legal sphere but also became part of its community.

My internship in Shenzhen, China has given me a new perspective on working and living abroad, and has enabled me to become more acquainted with Chinese business culture.

I truly enjoyed my time living in Shenzhen and would encourage anyone who wants an adventure, and who wants to embrace a culture different from their own, to rise to the challenge and intern abroad.

Il periodo di stage in Cina è stato per me una bellissima esperienza specialmente dal punto di vista lavorativo dato che io non avevo mai fatto uno stage prima e sono capitato in un’azienda dove ho svolto le mansioni che avrei proprio voluto fare. L’azienda era abbastanza piccola ma molto buona e così ho avuto modo di vedere tutti i passaggi ed esplorare tutti i settori. Il mio capo era americano e da quel punto di vista ho perso un tratto peculiare dell’esperienza in Cina ma è stato un ottimo capo che mi ha spiegato e aiutato molto. Fuori dall’azienda inizialmente non è stato il massimo ma un po’ uno shock.

Adesso devo finire l’ultimo anno di triennale, laurearmi e poi pensavo di fare la magistrale nel Regno Unito e rifare un altra esperienza di stage all’estero per poi tornare in Italia. Mi farebbe piacere tornare in Cina ma solo per un’altra esperienza lavorativa per un periodo limitato.

La mia partecipazione al programma di CRCC Asia si è dimostrata essere una bellissima esperienza dove ho potuto avere l’opportunità di conoscere moltissimi ragazzi da tutte le parti del mondo e vivere un’esperienza lavorativa che non avrei potuto trovare qui in Italia. In azienda mi son trovato molto bene, la mia supervisor era molto gentile, mi dava dei consigli, cercava di darmi la sua opinione per migliorare il mio lavoro e mi coinvolgeva molto nei progetti che sono stati portati avanti.

Secondo me è un’esperienza che risulterà molto rilevante nel mio cv in futuro, e mi è piaciuta tantissimo. Adesso sto ancora studiando e per il momento non so ancora cosa farò in futuro.

Mi nombre es Enric Flor y he estudiado ingeniería mecánica en la Universitat de Girona, gracias a la cual me enteré de los programas de CRCC Asia. En mi caso estoy haciendo el de tres meses de prácticas en una empresa en Shenzhen.

Pero lo que más me gusta es ver a la gente cómo vive, y las costumbres que tienen aquí. Después de dos meses viviendo en China aún estoy viendo cosas que me sorprenden y estoy seguro que el mes que me queda seguiré igual. Personalmente, creo que esto es lo mejor que te puedes llevar de este país, tratar con una cultura y unas tradiciones tan distintas que te hacen ver el mundo con otros ojos y crecer como persona. Es una experiencia que recomiendo a todo el mundo y que dudo que alguien se arrepienta de haber vivido.

After studying abroad at Peking University in Beijing last summer, I was eager to return to China and applied to CRCC online. It’s now been two weeks since I left my internship in Shanghai and I’m still missing it so much. It really was one of those unforgettable summers – I gained valuable work experience, life skills, funny anecdotes and new friends across the world.

I’m now entering my third year at University and I’d love to return to work in Shanghai or study for a masters in Chinese. My CRCC internship really whet my appetite for working abroad, and I can’t wait to graduate and start my next adventure! Thanks to the CRCC Team!

Going to Shanghai for an internship through CRCC Asia was one of the best experiences ever. I enjoyed a balanced work and social life and was able to build good networks, both of friends and professionals.

All of this would have been impossible for me to do without the CRCC Asia team and everything they organised, from the airport pick up to the weekly events. It was well worth the investment and I highly recommend the CRCC Asia Internship in Shanghai Programme. Thank you CRCC Asia!

I worked for a global social enterprise called d.light. The company produces and distributes affordable solar energy solution for households and small businesses replacing the traditional and deadly kerosene. This enterprise aims to improve the lives of the two billion people in the developing world that live without access to reliable energy.
I really enjoyed the night life in Shenzhen, it’s very different to London. Shops closes quite late and there is plenty of entertainment everywhere you go. This is one aspect of internship in Shenzhen that I will miss the most.

Mi nombre es Pablo y he participado en el programa de prácticas de CRCC Asia en Beijing, en el área de business, durante un mes.

A su vez, la organización está muy atenta y dispuesta a ayudar antes y durante el programa. Por todo ello, agradezco a CRCC Asia el haberme otorgado una de las becas que ofrecen, gracias a la cual he podido vivir esta experiencia única e inolvidable, tanto a nivel personal como profesional. Indudablemente, la recomiendo a todo el mundo.

Having heard about CRCC from my travels around China with its partner company the Dragon Trip two years ago (a trip I highly recommend!) I was very keen to make my return to China. CRCC made this possible and provided me with an incredible summer, both career wise and for the overall experience!

My CRCC internship in Shanghai provided me with an unforgettable experience, and my only regret is not staying longer! Having enjoyed my time working abroad so much, I am excited to do so again in the future, thank you again CRCC!
