Global Research & Internship Program (GRIP): LYNK Intern in Hong Kong
Ask me about...
Being abroad for the first time!
My Experience Abroad:
I'm currently pursuing concentrations in Finance, Management and Business Economics and Public Policy; one of my interests that relates to my coursework at Penn is entrepreneurship. I hope to use what I've learned at Penn to create my own company/organization one day. My time abroad related to my coursework and pursuits in that I worked at a company founded by a team of Penn alumni--I was able to observe a company in a rapid stage of growth, as well as learn about how it evolved from being a 3 person startup to a company with hundreds of employees.
Making new friends from work and from getting to know locals
Getting to know the company better (was also given a return offer and a part-time job during the school year)
Learning about the culture of Hong Kong and the surrounding parts of Asia (I also went to Singapore and Vietnam for weekend trips)
Learning about different fields of work in Hong Kong--our company brought guest speakers who taught us about their careers in Asia
