Program Information:

On Intern in China, your internship will be customized to match your interests and how long you want to live abroad. You can gain practical skills in your major and really boost your resume with international work experience. Internships last a minimum of 4 weeks, but we encourage you to stay as long as you can. Placements are focused in the modern cities of Shanghai or Beijing.

Here are some things to expect while on this unique program:
  • A custom internship placement – We understand that you aren’t traveling to China to sharpen pencils and learn to brew the perfect cup of tea. Don’t worry: your work in Shanghai or Beijing will take into account your career goals, interests, and skills.
     
  • Resume-boosting experience – Besides improving your Mandarin language skills, you’ll be gaining valuable international work experience and professional references for the future. You will also receive an Internship Completion Certificate and an Employer Reference Letter. This will certainly help during the post-graduation job search!
  • Strong staff support – Before your trip you will work with CISabroad staff in the US, and once you arrive in Shanghai or Beijing, our site director will help you with internship, excursions, and general support.
