Federico viene da Supino, in provincia di Frosinone e ad agosto 2015 è partito per un internship di 2 mesi a Shanghai nel settore del Business. L’esperienza di uno stage all’estero con il China Internship Program di CRCC Asia è stata molto positiva per lui e ha apprezzato molto l’organizzazione da parte di CRCC Asia.

I chose to do an internship in Beijing with CRCC Asia as a free elective through my university and I have not been disappointed. I was given interesting tasks at work, regularly socialised with my co-workers & other interns and did a great deal of sightseeing in the month that I was there. The time absolutely flew past, I was always busy experiencing something new which ultimately contributed to my new appreciation of world culture.

Doing an internship with CRCC Asia is a great stepping stone to enter the workforce in a foreign city. It is made relatively easy for you by the fact that your visa, sim & business cards and accommodation are all organised for you which means you spend less time doing the tedious essentials and more time exploring personal points of interest. If you want to experience a new city in a foreign culture half way around the world and gain some industry relevant skills along the way, then this is the internship for you.

The assistance CRCC Asia provided for me throughout the whole process was invaluable. Their assistance ranged from providing a full pack of Shenzhen essentials such as a topped up chinese SIM card and a Shenzhen metro card, which are very important for daily life. They also provided a great introductory meeting which provided a valuable insight into Chinese culture and the nuances and differences compared to life in the UK, while also highlighting important concepts such as Guanxi and Mianzi. The leaving ceremony was also very informative, with tips on how to work in China in the future as an expat. Internship in Shenzhen through CRCC Asia has been a fabulous and enlightening experience for me. I was able to immerse myself in a completely different culture, visit exquisite surroundings (such as Zhuhai, Macau and Hong Kong) and the chance to experience life working for a Chinese law firm was invaluable and will stand me in great stead for my future career. Therefore, I highly recommend this program

The main motivation for wanting to work in China is because of the future potential of China. China is the world’s second largest economy and the scholarship gave me the opportunity to experience and understand in more depth Chinese business culture. This insider knowledge will make me stand out to future employers. Many companies look favourably on internships, and the fact that I undertook an internship in Beijing, China shows that I have a global outlook.

This experience has been invaluable for the future. It has only made me more certain in my choice to work abroad once I graduate. An internship in China has also made me realise the opportunities that are present in China. Gaining exposure to the range of start-ups, and seeing first-hand the rapid development of many SMEs in Beijing has shown me the potential for entrepreneurs and careers in Beijing. This experience also showed me the necessity of independence and self-driven motivation.

Beijing was a fantastic city to internship in. I undertook a two month marketing internship in Beijing with a private healthcare provider that had clinics across China. During my internship, I was given quite a lot of responsibility which was fantastic! I was responsible for event management, content creation, reviewing website architecture and competitor analysis. The one thing I loved about my internship was that I was treated as a valued member of the team that contributed a high standard of work. My work colleagues were also very welcoming, inviting me out to lunch and helping me if I needed any translation.

When looking back at my two month internship, it is an experience I will value for the rest of my life. I had quite a heavy workload over the short space of time but it gave me the transferable skills and experience that I wanted to have on my CV. I would highly recommend anyone at university or who has graduated to apply. Experiences like these are valuable and hard to come by.
