Our paid Interns have been in China for two weeks and today we received two new photos.
Our office in Beijing reports that the Interns are working hard and adapting to life in China. They are working on the high school program (Chinese high school students coming to the U.S. for an academic year) and with Work and Travel students (Chinese college students coming here to work for 4 months and travel.)
What do they do? They interview Chinese students and screen them for their English ability and also talk to them about life in America.
The visas have been successfully extended and the host families where they live are happy to have them and they are enjoying living in Chinese homestays rather than an apartment. They were offered both options but chose homestays to get a real feel of living and working in China.
So all of this is good news. The bad news is that GeoVisions has filled 100% of the positions for the rest of 2010. If you are interested in a paid Internship in China that costs only $800 look no further. But it will be 2011 before you can go. Still, now is the time to get your application to us. 2011 will be full before you know it.
