Every Fall and Spring the Shanghai and Beijng offices recruit interns. The internships lasts for 3-6 months, and offer you the opportunity to peer into the Sino-Swedish business world, and enable you to start building and expanding your network, with experienced and diverse individuals.
The internship role include: creating marketing content and articles about Sino-Swedish businesses, planning and executing upcoming events, contacting members and member companies, and assisting in daily tasks.
Disclaimer: The internship is unpaid, thus it is recommended that the intern be registered at a Swedish university in order to receive CSN or be enrolled at a Chinese University in China for more than year. You must also have a foreign insurance that is valid throughout your time in China. Furthermore, you must cover your own living expenses (including housing) whilst abroad.
Requirements: The internship should be relevant to your studies at either a bachelors or masters level. You should have excellent knowledge of English, and preferably in Chinese (Mandarin) as well. An intern with knowledge and experience in the service and/or marketing fields is preferable. In terms of personality, we are looking for some who is engaging, social, outgoing, and is able to execute tasks in a timely manner. Your time with the Swedish Chamber of Commerce should build on your knowledge, help you grow as an individual, and help you come closer to your personal goals; it is therefore important that you demonstrate an interest in the Chinese culture.
