Shanghai Summer - Internship

Program Overview

Shanghai Summer Internship

Witness how globalization affects Shanghai, an economic and cultural hub of more than 18 million people, and develop a greater understanding of how China's influence is increasingly affecting the world. Our program guarantees an internship placement to help you develop professional skills that will jump-start your résumé and make you more attractive to employers in today's competitive job market. IES Abroad's unpaid, academic internships have placed Shanghai students at companies such as General Biologicals Corporation, Horizon FuelCell Technology, and UnicView Marketing Research & Consulting, while also showing students the sights and sounds of China.

Before you depart, we work with you to fine-tune your résumé, perfect your cover letter, hone your networking and interview skills, as well as prepare you for working in a new cultural environment. You'll be guaranteed a placement at a local business or organization. You will also enroll in a required academic internship seminar with other IES Abroad interns, where you’ll learn about a variety of local business settings and opportunities. You also can enroll in an optional Chinese language course.
