- The perfect internship experience!12/11/13
I did a 3 month internship with Startup China in Shanghai. I worked in a marketing company. I was kept busy and given my own project to work on so I felt like I had responsibility for something. I loved going to work every day as it gave me a real insight
into the marketing industry internationally - just what I wanted to help me towards my career goals. My colleagues were really nice too and let me practice Chinese with them. Before I went to China, I didn't know any Chinese but through the survival Chinese lessons I got with the internship, I managed to learn quite a lot. I can order food, tell a taxi driver where to and go shopping now! I never thought I'd be able to say so much when I arrived but the teachers at That's Mandarin (the language school) were all really good. The service from Startup China themselves was also really good. They were always there for me and I knew if I needed them they were only an email or phone call away. From the interview right through to the end of my internship I felt like Startup really cared about me and wanted me to enjoy my experience. The only thing I didn't like was the bad pollution in Shanghai and Beijing (I visited the capital with a few other interns one weekend). There's also a lot of cultural differences I had to get used to, some of which shocked me in the beginning, but I've learnt to embrace them now. I'd definitly recommend Startup China to anyone wanting to do an internship in China. I had an amazing time and so will anyone else who does the program.read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
