My internship at InternChina (view of an office intern) – Kevin Kowalczyk
My name is Kevin Dean Kowalczyk, I´m 23 years old and from Berlin, Germany. I´m in Zhuhai, China for almost one and a half months and I´m currently pursuing my internship at InternChina which is an agency for providing unique internship opportunities for students as well as for graduates in order to experience the real China. InternChina is located in three different and great locations which are Zhuhai, Qingdao and Chengdu.The InternChina team is young, passionate and ambitious which made me feel home from the first day. It is also very mixed environment and made up of a variety of nationalities and backgrounds.
Within my first weeks I received several tasks the three main areas Sales, Marketing and Business Development. Relating to Sales my task is to get in touch with potential interns, answering their Enquires, make them feel comfortable and find the best possible internship position relating to their individual background.
In Marketing, I took over managing the Xing company profile as well as our YouTube channel and Iam now responsible to ensuring both professional and interesting articles as well as providing exciting useful video material. I manage the content of all three offices and ensure that the articles and videos will be in the right place at the right time.
Finally Business Development plays an important role in order to give our interns a broad range of different companies they can choose from as well as to ensure that every intern will find their dream placement in China. My role is to continuously expand our relationships between current partner companies and introduce new companies to participate in our programs.
To sum it all up, I really enjoy being in China and interning for InternChina. IC has a very open company culture and so every office intern gets a lot of freedom how to do projects. Interns can implement their own ideas to shape the company’s future of InternChina and by extension, the experience of hundreds of interns. The family atmosphere of the company is remarkable and is a key company value that is felt every day.
