Finance & Accounting Internship


Finance is one of the most sought-after internship sectors. As more and more foreign financial institutes set up their operations in China, particularly in Shanghai, English speaking intern are needed more than before, although, in many cases, a certain level of Chinese proficiency is normally required to enable interns to actually get involved in the real tasks.

Accounting is also a popular but competitive field as it is an integral part of any company. Positions are normally available at WOFE, joint venture companies and tax/auditing consulting firms that serve these types of companies. A corporate accounting internship will typically require a certain level of Chinese proficiency. Finance and accounting consulting companies would be a little more flexible on this but understadning Chinese language can almost always secure an internship within this field.

Insurance and wealth management organizations are commonly seen ones that hires interns to deal with non-Chinese customers and conduct consulting service in the still-growing expatriate community in China. English speaking intern are commonly seen taking sales and market research role in these hosts.
