Laetitia Delmarche’s experience in Shanghai at Journalism Project   (published in China)

December 2, 2013 by   Comments(0)

Après l’Inde, me voici arrivée en Chine pour le même projet : journalisme. Il était clair pour moi que ça serait différent et en effet, le changement a été radical.

Pour tous les projets, le premier jour est une introduction au lieu de stage. On arrive avec la directrice de PA Shanghai et on rencontre notre superviseur. La rencontre fus courte et je n’ai pas été présentée aux autres membres du staff. Pas grave, je me dis que le lendemain je verrai tout le monde. Et bien, personne ne s’est présenté, j’ai connus le nom de mes collègues grâce à leurs adresse e-mail.

Le matin tout le monde arrive mais personne ne dit bonjour, ils commencent directement à travailler. Je dois bien avouer que ce n’était pas l’ambiance la plus facile pour créé des relations. Pour ce qui est du travail, il y a une chose qui m’a paru bizarre : on ne peux pas commencer à écrire sans avoir d’abord les photos. En ils ont besoins de photos officielles. Par exemple j’ai été à une exposition mais je n’ai jamais rien écrit dessus pour la simple et bonne raison que les photos officielles ne sont jamais arrivées. On travail en tant que journaliste, mais j’ai passé le plus clair de mon temps à la rédaction. Cependant, j’ai eu aussi des expos ou des événements à couvrir le soir ou le week-end.

Pour ce qui est de Shanghai, c’est une ville intéressante et multiculturelle. Après avoir été en Inde, c’était comme un retour à la ...

Iwona Sobon‘s experience in Chengdu at Business Project   (published in China)

December 2, 2013 by   Comments(0)

 

Being a qualified accounting technician with a few years of experience I have decided it was time for me to develop some more new skills within finance, abroad. China seems to be the best choice as one of the fastest growing economies in the world. Originally I wanted to go to Shanghai but Projects Abroad found me a placement in Chengdu in Amicorp – a rapidly expanding, international financial company.

The first day was very exciting; the office is based on the 22nd floor of one of the main trade buildings in the city centre of Chengdu, walking distance from famous Tianfu Square. My supervisor introduced me to little group of my new colleges and I started work straight away. On a daily basis I was an assistant to the director of Amicorp, conducting market research on international tax laws and legislations, liaising with other branches and reporting to him directly. I also had couple of projects within my professional field as creating final accounts for clients and analysing their cash book. Some days were busier than others and many times I had to stay till late to help with last minute jobs but I had few days where there was not much to do as well.I wish I would do more work relating to my actual profession but overall I’m glad with the new experience I gained there.

 

Chengdu itself is a fascinating city and I’m happy that I was placedthere. At the start I was afraid of its famous spicy food as it wasn’t my favourite back then but after a few weeks I slowly got used to the flavours and it began to be quite addictive JChengdu it is a very busy place with thousands of cars, buses and scooters pouring through the streets at rush hour, it had a certain buzz about it. The atmosphere felt different and more friendly than other parts ...

An Australian girl Susanna Ackroyd uses her gap year to make her marker on China Teaching Project   (published in China)

December 2, 2013 by   Comments(0)

Spending the holiday with family and friends, or preparing for university are all great ways to spend a gap year. However, for a select few like Susanna Ackroyd, a gap year is a time of self-discovery, meaningful work and adventure.

Susanna Ackroyd is interested in Chinese cultural and would like to study Chinese in the University. Therefore, she decided to spend her gap year with Projects Abroad which she consider could offer the most support during her time of China, and participated a placement where the end result would be both meaningful while also enjoy her surroundings, so she signed up for a Teaching Project to work with kids in a language training center in Shanghai.

The language training center Susanna worked, offering English lessons to 3 to 17-year-old students. They provide students with a fun, creative and relaxing learning experience. The teachers are professional, creative and outgoing people who enjoy teaching English and having fun with the children. “My first month here was actually summer holiday of Chinese public school. Thus, as a language training center, my placement provided a summer camp for children. I spent a lot of time in my placement during the first month. I was teaching the children English and playing game and interact with them.” Susanna said “The ages of children are between 5-6 and 10-11. After the summer camp finished, I started to working day care with a group children around 3 years old. Besides, in the afternoon I provide English training for other staff member in the language center.”
