What’s it like to intern at Vericant?
My internship at Vericant allowed me to hone my professional skills, especially those in my field of study. I was able to practice public speaking, develop my ability to manage tasks, and also to organize my time effectively. I have become more open-minded and a team player, being able to work in a multicultural environment.
Vericant is an amazing place to intern! The staff are very friendly, flexible, and supportive. Additionally, I have engaged in work that was not only enjoyable, but was also beneficial to me in my chosen career path. I could not recommend them highly enough, and it has made for a great experience in China!
About the Internship
- Vericant accepts both Chinese citizens and non-Chinese citizens as interns. We accept both graduates and current students.
- Internships require a minimum commitment of three days per week and a minimum commitment of three months.
- Vericant will provide a stipend to interns that are able to commit to 40 hours per week (five days per week). Interns that are able to commit less than to 40 hours per week are welcome to apply, but we aren’t able to provide these interns with a stipend.
- Vericant does not assist with airfare, visa, housing, or other personal expenses.
- At the end of the internship, an official letter of recommendation can be provided based on performance, and we are happy to serve as references for your next professional steps. Our internship program is also our favorite way to recruit full-time hires, so let us know right away if you will be looking for a full-time position once your internship ends.
- Interns must be able to use both English and Chinese well enough to communicate both verbally and in writing with colleagues on a daily basis. More advanced English and Chinese language skills would be a plus.
- You’ll spend the first two weeks learning our systems: Depending on what department you are working with, this could focus on video editing, translation & subtitle management, how our interviews work, or the systems and tools that we use to communicate with our clients. After that, you’ll be given an area to be fully responsible for. You will work with a manager or coach to revise and improve the system or the tool that you are working with, and your ideas and your plans for improvement can affect everyone at the company.
- Vericant’s Beijing office generally hosts two to five interns each year. Past interns have researched Chinese-language sources, created reports on how to improve Vericant’s Human Resources department, designed video editing software, organized outreach activities, and assisted with enhancing customer relations.
- Successful non-Chinese interns have often spent time living or studying in mainland China, and successful Chinese interns have often spent time living or studying in North America.
- Vericant partners with over 100 schools in North America and thousands of students visit our office each year to express who they really are. As an intern, any improvement you make can instantly help thousands of young people get access to a better education. If international education excites you as much as it does us, then you should be a part of our team.
