Indian and Chinese Companies Benefit from Foreign Interns

Posted by Flora Saint-Sans • Thursday, February 7. 2013 • Category: Global Career
With an array of Indian and Chinese companies expanding their global footprint, the trend mainly started by technology firms to hire foreign interns has both deepened and extended to other industries. Companies ranging from hospitality, market research to airport development have an ever rising awareness of the benefits of hiring foreign interns. While many companies are vying for international interns to connect better with their target customers abroad, others are seeking graduates from leading business schools to develop international talent. Infosys in India and Huawei in China are just two of the many companies that are continuously hiring interns from countries as diverse as Mexico, South Africa, and Germany.

Shanghai is one of the main destinations for international interns

A Journey in Search of Deep True Scottish Love

Posted by Miya Yang • Friday, January 11. 2013 • Category: In Depth
Part 1. Never Travel on Boxing Day.

Back in the year 2008, I was a second year student in University of Nottingham in England. Knowing that I would ‘enjoy’ the Chinese Spring festival in between exams, I decided to make the most of my Christmas holiday by traveling to the northern part of Great Britain. So the plan was to invite some friends to clean up my fridge on Christmas day and go for a 10 days journey in Scotland with two Chinese classmates. However, I was told on Christmas dinner that the two classmates who had already booked the trip (350 quid) didn’t bother going any more, since they felt like falling ill after a visit to London and thought Scotland would be cold as hell. My expectation of the journey went a ‘30% off’, yet I insisted on going alone.

Foreigners in China - Where Do They Live and Work?

Posted by Daniel Ratheiser • Monday, April 23. 2012 • Category: In Depth
The two largest cities in China are the main draw for foreigners coming to China for work: Beijing, the political capital, and Shanghai, the country’s financial centre. Both cities have about 20 million inhabitants and thus count among the largest metropolises in the world. In terms of convenience, accessibility, availability of interesting jobs, and existing expatriate networks these two cities are hard to beat. Since both cities are very internationally orientated, they are more accessible, logistically as well as culturally.

Leisure Culture in Modern China

Posted by Noemie Lataud • Tuesday, November 1. 2011 • Category: People and Places
Along with economic development and social evolution in both developed and developing countries, leisure activities have become more important and diverse than ever. Relaxing after long and strenuous working hours and the other obligations of daily life is now a necessity. The “need to escape” is enjoyed in different ways across cultures and is closely related to daily lifestyles, working life, and cultural patterns. As Chinese society has experienced great changes over the last few decades, leisure activities have also developed a lot. I have had the opportunity to observe these evolutions in China and explore Western and Chinese views on this issue. The following is an interview conducted with David Ritter, a 27 year old American male who has been living in China for two and a half years, and Yang Qi, a 25 year old Chinese male who studied in Australia for six years but has since returned to Chengdu. Below is a transcript of our discussions about Chinese leisure activities.

Internships in India and China Will Give You an Edge

Posted by Flora Saint-Sans • Friday, October 14. 2011 • Category: Global Career
Why should I do an internship in India or China? Take a look around you. How many students in your school are doing internships in India or China? Not many, I suppose. This by itself is the first advantage of doing an internship there. If an employer has two identical candidates with everything else being the same except that one of them has done an interesting internship during his/her college years, who do you think the employer is going to prefer? Of course, the person with the outstanding internship!
