Don’t just take our word for it – hear personal stories and highlights from our ImmerQi alumni!
As someone who is always seeking life challenges and enjoys what the world has to offer, I’m glad I made my decision to come to China for my internship. I’m grateful that I found ImmerQi to assist me along the way and was offered a permanent role to assist the GM after my internship.
I completed a Food and Beverage internship at a high-end Beijing hotel as part of my university’s required internship experience. Getting the exposure and mentoring at all the hotel’s various restaurants and bars gave me great insight into the each outlet’s management and operations.
I was looking for something more than just the commercial design that is reigning in Italy and different companies all over the world. China appealed to me as I wanted an experience that would allow me to mix my European background and personality with Asian culture.
