Go Abroad China : Internship in China Program

What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
Working with my mentor Yes, I actually had a real person dedicated to my specific internship. On top of that, my mentor called me at least once a week to go over progress and provide feedback. While we typically just talked about how my work was going, he also let me vent and offer advice about anything on my mind. This way, he really got to know me as an individual and better understand what I needed from him. It created an environment of trust where there was no room for scamming or wasting anyone’s time. In all honesty, I would have paid them $500 for my mentor alone – it’s worth every penny! No other company gives you individualized attention like they do.

I’ve been wanting to do an internship since my freshman year of college, but I never had the opportunity because my schedule was too busy with class work and other commitments to be able to fully commit to an internship. So when I heard about GoAbroadChina’s virtual internship, I knew it was exactly what I needed. The best part was that my online internship didn’t have to interrupt my schooling, which made it easy for me to make the most of this awesome opportunity. Here’s how it all worked!
