China Internship Program
Prepare yourself to live amongst 22 million people in a city that never sleeps. As an intern in Beijing you will meet locals and expats, experience historical monuments, taste traditional street kitchen food and hang out in trendy rooftop bars with cafés and restaurants. An internship in Beijing is not to be missed.
As an intern in Beijing you will experience a unique working day and everyday life that will not resemble to your life at home in any way. And that is the awesome part. How about an internship as a journalist in a magazine, in the marketing department of a creative agency or as a project facilitator in a newly created start-up? There are tons of possibilities for internships in Beijing.
Imagine a city that consists of modern and ancient - that is Beijing for you. Meet a colleague for breakfast, maybe for a 'baozi' - a steamed Chinese bun with delicious fillings. They are super tasty and very soft to bite in. Jump on the tube to work and get yourself prepared for an interesting day as an intern. Enjoy the buzz that runs through your body when you pinch yourself and think of how lucky you are to live in such a unique and interesting part of the world for a period of your life. Memories and learnings that you will cherish forever.
