I have been part of the CIP Engineering Internship through my University Portal. I have visited China at several opportunities and my Chinese proficiency is intermediate. I felt I need an agency or a platform that can organize the facets of my internship so I spoke with my career adviser who introduced me to CIP Program.
The placement process was smooth and I secured an Internship Opportunity with a European Engineering Company. I was there as a Project Engineering Intern; a role I like so much. The Company deals with Institutional clients like Airbus, Boeing Benz, Audi, and BMW.
I was tasked to assist the sales team to coordinate the technical evaluation of client experience using our proprietary technologies in Auto and Aviation industry. I also participated in evaluating project feasibility and analysis.
The most challenging part of my internship is keeping an eye on Project delivery and timelines using various software and systems. For the months that I interned with them, my colleagues relied on my intuition which brings so much pressure to bear. My communication skills were key to a successful internship
I was also able to learn Technical Mandarin Vocabularies related to my industry which is a step in the right direction
I am very thankful to the CIP team for being there at the onset. CIP created a very friendly atmosphere for all participants. The Business Networking and weekend trips were right on point 🙂
My Mentor was awesome making sure I am prepared for the Job market.
I selected CIP because of the uniqueness of their programs and the fact that they were on top of issues. I will recommend CIP to all Interns considering China
