My Internship at Captivate Training and Consulting !
My name is Kristina and I am an International Business & Management student from Germany. I did my internship at Captivate Training & Consulting for 3, 5 months.
I gained a lot of experience during my time in China especially about the Chinese culture and business environment.
My daily tasks at Captivate included creating Newsletters, writing blog articles, different research projects, working with a Customer Relationship system, phone calls with clients and e-mail writing. Moreover, I was responsible for the company website which was really interesting. My boss James took me to lots of meetings and his training classes for companies like IKEA. Through his soft skills training I was able to develop new skills and strengthened those I already possessed. I was part of two events which he organized at the Shangri-La Hotel which was an overwhelming experience to the fact that I had the chance to network with more than 50 HR Managers and Businesspeople.
Every last Wednesday of a month, I joint the Qingdao International Business Association (QIBA) which is also a networking event with valuable presentations about important business topics. The most important knowledge I gained was how to do business in China. I received an understanding of the business culture and Chinese lifestyle. This broadened my horizon and build the base for my future. It was an experience I will never forget.
Thank you Internchina for this opportunity and that I was part of the IC network.
