I am working at the concierge, in the front office. It was my agency company that helped me a lot to find this great place. My agency company was Sinacon China. So, first they introduced me to this hotel and after that I took my interview with my human resources director. I would like to use this moment to thank my agency company Sinacon China and especially my agent, Mr Jimmy, for finding me this great place.

What our interns said about their experience in China

“I was so sad to actually leave China at the end of my internship. I did my internship at Sofitel and had a great time there as well as amazing colleagues. I felt extremely lucky to have gotten the opportunity to do my internship in Qingdao and can't thank Sina Careers enough for all their help and support that they provided throughout my stay in China. I would certainly recommend it!

I worked in the sales department of a Chinese company in Qingdao for 4.5 months and I really enjoyed it. We went to visit the factory in the countryside a couple of times and I was allowed to take part in business meeting in other parts of the province. Apart from getting a real understanding of what business is, I also got a wonderful taste of a completely new culture.

Coming to Qingdao for my internship and not to Shanghai or Peking was a very conscious decision, which I don’t regret. Qingdao is the only city in China with historical German influence still visible today. The city offers everything you would expect. Nightlife, bars, clubs, culture, lots of traffic, however, is still much closer to the “real China” in comparison to the mega-cities.

Lots of mails where send before I actually moved to China, which made me feel confident to go. Arriving in Qingdao was just a great experience; an airport pick-up was really something comfortable after a long flight. We went to the apartment directly and I felt at home and ready to start a good work placement. My stay was very comfortable with all the services they provide.
