Our Government Affairs and Policy team is searching for an intern to support our policy and advocacy work. Interns will be based in Beijing.
When asked about their experience interning with AmCham China, former interns have said:
“I feel that I can talk intelligently about the current trends in most of the industries AmCham touches.”
“AmCham China provides a platform for you to get involved with industry players in a friendly environment. The dynamic nature of the internship allows you to lend a helping hand and get involved with new projects of interest as they emerge. At one annual meeting I was given the responsibility of coordinating a multimedia presentation for the 80+ business leaders in attendance. I was given the resources needed and told to ‘make it happen.’ I really loved it!”
