AHANA'S PICK: General Motors China Finance Analyst Summer Internship
APPLICATION DEADLINE: March 17, 2017
General Motors, a Detroit based company, is visioned to be the best automotive group in China. This position would be an amazing opportunity to those interested in the business side of the automotive industry not to mention the opportunity to gain an abroad experience like no other in Shanghai!!
With this internship you will gain trend and cost analysis skills, improving the plants overall productivity. These are extremely sought after skills in the finance world and will set you up for the field post graduation. This is an invaluable experience in more ways than one for a worldwide renowned company.
What's the next best thing to an internship or a job? In my opinion, it's an experiential learning experience that will give you insight into what you'd be doing as well as connections to people who work there.
The BP Sophomore Experience is just that. An all expenses paid, week-long program, where you can speak to people working there, ask questions, and get a feel for what it'd be like to work there.
Gain experience in a wide range of fields within BP (e.g., science, engineering, business, trading, etc.). You might find something that interests you that you never really thought of or it could just help to reinforce your current interests. Either way it's an experience that you won't be able to replicate by looking online and searching their website -- so why not take advantage of the opportunity to grow and build your network? :-)
