Paid Summer Internship in Shanghai, China

[NOTE: We had to remove all identifying information from this old post. It seems that people all over the world are looking for internships in Shanghai. This post was intended for CSOC students at UPS, but it’s attracted a lot more attention than that, and while it clearly states that there are deadlines well in the past involved, we’re removing contact information anyway to stop the flow of misguided inquiries. If you’re nonetheless interested in this opportunity, talk to one of your CSOC professors in person about this!]


{XXXXXXX] is a “boutique branding and technology studio” whose president, [XXXXX], is a Puget Sound alumnus (’97). His company is expanding into China, and as a result they have created an internship that would ideal for a CSOC major interested in helping transnational corporations sell high end commodities (like Absolut Vodka, Cartier Jewelry, and Armani Exchange) to the burgeoning Chinese middle class. If you’re interested, read on. Oh, and if you’d like to see a “description of work” for the position, email [XXXXX] and I’ll forward it to you. Here are the details:

[XXXXX] is a boutique branding and technology studio.  President and Co-Founder, [XXXXX] ’98, is a Puget Sound alumni currently spear-heading his company’s expansion into the Chinese marketplace. They recently opened their Shanghai office (they also have offices in Hong Kong and New York), and are building quite the list of clients including Armani Exchange, Absolut Vodka, Cartier and IBM to name a few.

[XXXXX] is seeking an intern to work for the duration of summer (if returning to school in the fall) or beyond (if graduating this spring or already graduated).

Who should apply: Students may apply no matter their year in school, as well as alumni. [XXX] left the internship description purposefully open, wanting instead to find someone with an intrinsic passion for culture, media, branding, technology, or any blend of these areas. They can teach the technical skills, but not the passion.

The intern will learn programming skills, prior knowledge in this area is great, but is by no means a requirement as they are happy to train the right person. Other areas the intern will gain exposure to include digital marketing and brand design.

Compensation will cover the cost living and meals for the duration of the internship. The company will help with applying for and obtaining a VISA to work in China. Additionally, [XXX] mentioned that acclimating to life in Shanghai is easy (relative to other Chinese cities) because of the large ex-pat population in the city.

How to apply: Submit a Cover Letter and Resume to [XXX] and clearly state [XXX] internship application in the subject line so it doesn’t get missed. These documents should be submitted no later than end of day Friday, February 17th, 2012. This position is also posted in LoggerJobs, our online job-posting system, and students may search for it by position title (Intern), company name [XXXXX], or ID number (13193).

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me via email at [XXXXX]
