Internships at the US-China Business Council (USCBC) are a rewarding experience designed for Chinese nationals who are enrolled in graduate school or have recently graduated. Exceptional undergraduates in their junior or senior year may also be considered.
 
Our Shanghai office is relatively small, and interns are expected to assume a significant amount of responsibility. Their main tasks include:
 
l          Conducting independent research in support of full-time staff on a wide array of business issues
l          Researching and writing for the USCBC’s e-mail newsletter on developments in China, the China Market Intelligence
l          Assisting in organizing and running USCBC events, including Issues Luncheons, ad-hoc roundtables of senior executives, and the annual China Operations conference
l          Assisting full-time staff with administrative tasks such as answering phone calls, arranging express delivery, and other duties.
 
Competitive candidates should embody the following qualifications and characteristics:

 
l          Undergraduate degree in a business- or law-related field such as international relations, economics, political science, international business, etc.
l          Excellent English-language writing and research skills, particularly the ability to synthesize large amounts of information into concise and informative reports and articles
l          Native fluency in speaking and reading Chinese
l          Professional demeanor and bearing
l          Strong interest in business, commercial policy, and US-China political and trade relations
l          Some previous work experience; work experience at a US company in China is particularly desirable
 
The USCBC’s Shanghai office hours are from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm, Monday through Friday. The USCBC requires interns to commit to working 3 days per week for a period of approximately 6 months. Internships at USCBC are uncompensated, except for a small stipend of 80 RMB per day worked, and transportation expenses to and from the office.
 
 
Independent Research and Writing Test
 
Individuals who successfully complete a first round interview for an internship at the US-China Business will need to successfully complete a research and writing test. Prospective interns are assigned a current topic of interest to U.S. companies in China, given Chinese-language sources, and asked to compose a three to four-paragraph newsletter article on that subject. Possible examples might include the issuing of new regulations on mergers and acquisitions by a relevant Chinese government ministry, a resolution of a notable IPR-related court case in a local court, or a visit by a prominent US trade official to China.
 
Deadline for submission: July 31, 2012
