If you’re here, you probably know that internships are pretty important when it comes to securing a job. You probably are also aware that 90% of employers view prior experiences as a key factor in hiring decisions. 

You may still be asking yourself whether trekking halfway across the world to intern in China is a brilliant career move or just completely crazy. We’re here to tell you it’s probably a bit of both.

4 Reasons Interning In China Isn’t Completely Crazy

And why you should totally do it.

1. Stand out from the crowd

All of your friends are getting the same education and the same experience back home. How are you going to get ahead of the pack? (Hint: a work placement in the world’s fastest growing economy may help).

2. Challenge of a lifetime

We’re not pretending it’s gonna be easy. But if everyone could do it, it wouldn’t be worth doing in the first place, right? Working and living in a completely different culture is going to help you grow in ways you couldn’t even imagine.

3. Right place, right time

Everyone in business wants to work with China. Do a placement through ImmerQi and you’ll return home with heaps of relevant experience, dozens of useful contacts and enough Mandarin to make you in-demand to the best employers.

4. Work hard, play hard

Whether it’s eating something you can’t pronounce, taking a quiet wander through the Hutongs or making dumplings with your new work colleagues, you’ll be sharing your extraordinary memories for years to come.

Why pay for an internship?

Let’s talk about the elephant in the room. Like most internship providers in China, we do charge a fee for our programs. And hey, we get it, not everyone can afford to pay to come to China (pssst check out our financing section for some tips on how to pay for your internship). But if you do decide to invest in a China internship, we want you to know exactly why you’re paying money and where that money goes.
