Marketing Internships in China

Internships, Paid
We arrange internships in China in the field of English marketing with different companies. In the following, we present some marketing internships as examples, but we do not work with other companies in Beijing and Shanghai. The internships usually pay about 2000-3500 RMB/month for durations of 3 months or longer. Marketing internships in China are also available as remote/virtual internships, which however are not remunerated.
This placement is possible as a Remote / Virtual internship from home! The tasks for Remote Interns are the same as for on-site interns. The remote internship is 450 EUR for the first month and 100 EUR additionally for any additional month or part thereof. Remote/virtual internships out of China are not remunerated. Just submit the inquiry/order form form and mention "Remote Internship"!

Marketing Agencies

Many foreign companies trying to sell their products in China and position their brand, take the services of marketing agencies who claim to be familiar with the Chinese market and consumers. Many of these agencies also work for Chinese companies, which are aimed at a consumer base in the West.
It is a challenge, as campaigns and strategies in a particular country and their target group will be very different to another culture where communication styles and buying behavior differ significantly. This must be done in a more profound way than by linguistic translation.
Marketing agencies that specialize in such things are familiar with the differences of Chinese and Western audience, and develop and implement appropriate marketing strategies.
In such agencies in China, we organize marketing internships for those who are interested in international business and different cultural backgrounds.
Your responsibilities as an intern include:
* Coordination and organization of corporate events
* Research and analysis of distribution partners for the clients of the agency
* The agency's team assist with the preparation of customer visits
* General administrative tasks, such as application and creating schedules
You should:
* Be able to communicate in English
* Have a BA or higher degree
* Possess computer skills (Office applications)
Internships in such agencies are reimbursed.
