Sometimes plans need to change while working with a large number of companies as timelines change.
A few changes needed to be made as the time of the internship approaches and companies realize what they can actually offer.
One company was unable to offer the 1 student a placement anymore due to a workshop occurring during the first week.
Another 2 companies had a change in leadership, but luckily the new leadership is still very excited about having our students as interns.
Finally, the 3 students who were turned down from one of the posts still have yet to have placements.
The Good News
We made new partners!
The Hutong – a cultural center in Beijing, whom we partner with for Experience Week trips was able to interview and take on one of the students.
Manna Source – an start up enterprise in Beijing, who came to the career talk, is now also able to take 2 of the students after an interview.
With the addition of these partners, now all of our Y11 students have placements. In reflection, it seems we did everything we could and adapted to new changes when they arose.
