Internship Placement Process

The Internship Placement Process is conducted using a combination of the following methods:

1.                  Participant-driven/initiated search

Participants are strongly encouraged to take initiative in searching for internships related to their domain interest. Internship staff will support students throughout the process.  Participants should search for any connections they might have to Chinese employers before departing for China.  These connections can be found through a variety of sources such as university faculty and staff, family members, friends, former employers, alumni networks, or religious organizations among others.


2.                  Former and new contacts

The internship staff can contact former alumni/former internship providers to assist participants with their internship search. The internship staff also establishes new internship contacts and relationships (“关系guanxi”) with different organizations in various locations.
