“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 Sinacon enough for all their help and support that they provided throughout my stay in China. I would certainly recommend it!
It was remarkable how quick they found a work placement for me. The duration of my internship totally took 5 months and I enjoyed every minute of it. The company where I worked was great, my colleagues were nice and assisted me in any way possible.

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 is the difference in the approach to business, I also got a wonderful taste of a completely new culture. In China just everything is different. The food, the people, just everything. The Sinacon team was very, very helpful during the entire time. from the airport pickup to the translation of my internship certificate from Chinese to English. Thank you, I will be back in China for sure!
