BUSINESS & NETWORKING EVENTS
To ensure a professional and complete experience in China, we like to encourage our clients to meet with other fellow participants and attend business and networking events. We try to connect our interns with different chambers of commerce so they can attend some of their networking events.
One of the most important types of networking sessions involves our participants mingling with successful and knowledgeable people from the Chinese business community. This is a chance for our GAC program participants to learn useful information regarding the Chinese business culture, as well as build a business network. For those doing business internships in China, this will be a valuable oppotunity and a great way to spend a weekend evening.
We also encourage our participants to attend any other events/dinners that are organized by the companies that they intern at. This is a chance for the participants to interact with other employees outside of the usual office atmosphere. This truly helps to strengthen relations in the workplace! We believe networking is an important aspect to learn about if you want further career advancement opportunities! It is never too late to start attending networking events!
For those taking a Mandarin language course, it is perfectly acceptable to attend such events as you to can observe how career oriented people get together in China.
