Foreign interns experience working in Guangzhou

Posted by Reading Time: < 1 minute

There was an interesting televised program on Guangzhou today in which three interns gave their experiences of working for foreign companies in Guangzhou. One of them is Artur Jakubas, a Polish student currently undertaking an internship with Dezan Shira & Associates in the firm’s Guangzhou office, as part of his masters thesis at the University of Applied Science Muenster in Germany. Artur was joined by two American interns, one of whom is working with the U.S. Consulate in Guangzhou.

It’s always good to see tomorrow’s China expats express their views and experiences, and the interview (in both English and Chinese) goes over a number of issues – why they chose Guangzhou rather than Shanghai (the weather and the girls are prettier they waggishly suggest) as well as more insightful aspects of working as an intern in one of China’s wealthiest yet less glamorous cities, what they’ve learnt, why they’ve chosen particular courses, and their hopes of gaining employment in China after graduation. It’s an interesting view and you can view it here.
