An internship in China or Hong Kong will help grow your career and open doors. Your internship will be customised in length and matched to your interests. You can expect to gain practical skills in your area of study and really boost your CV with international work experience. Our Intern in China and Hong Kong placements are offered in Shanghai and Hong Kong. Placements in Beijing may be possible by special request, but cannot be guaranteed. Internship placements are in English, however, placements in Mandarin (in mainland China) and Cantonese (in Hong Kong) may also be available.
Some feature of your internship program will include:
Customised placement – An internship is an opportunity to work on your career goals as well as specific interests, and those personal skills are just waiting to be explored. We take that all into account with a customised internship that will maximise every moment of your placement.
Soft skills development – Gain useful work-related knowledge as you will be challenged and pushed out of your comfort zone. Interns will naturally acquire soft skills - such as communication, problem solving, adaptability, planning and initiative - that you will keep for life and be able to use across any industry.
Boost your future earning potential – Yes, you'll pick up a bit of Mandarin or Cantonese during your internship, but it’s the references and certificates that you'll take home that will really boost your career prospects. How's this to make your resume standout: professional references, an Employer Reference Letter and an Intern Certificate of Completion. Oh, and there's also that priceless international work experience.
Develop a solid professional network – As an intern in China or Hong Kong, you will start establishing a professional network, as working relationships are essential to conduct business in Asia. You will naturally be exposed to social and professional networking. Learning how to build and maintain relationships will be an enriching experience.
Develop entrepreneurial skills – Gaining entrepreneurial experience during your internship is paramount to a successful job application. Most importantly, you will learn what striving in a competitive environment means.
Learn Mandarin or Cantonese – You do not need to speak Mandarin or Cantonese to participate in this program, but what an opportunity to learn some of the language during your internship. Included in the comprehensive program are group language lessons. A great way to also enjoy a cultural experience.
Support all the way – We are with you before, during and after your internship. Our CISaustralia team in Australia will work with you before you leave, and we'll be there for you when you arrive in China or HK.
Explore China and HK – China and HK are places of immense diversity, both culturally and geographically. Your internship will give you plenty of time to explore and experience what these places and its people have to offer.
