We already know about all the scam internship companies peddling expensive and worthless internship placements with Chinese companies (Gi2c, CRCC, ChinaInterns, etc.) but here is a breath of fresh air that looks really promising for unemployed people under age 30 and uni grads...
You can really get FREE 90 day Fortune 500 or MNC internship in China, and if you demonstrate yourself as competent and reliable worker, you have a 30% chance of landing a full time job at pay scales that average $60,000 plus relocation expenses. These links here explain the procedures:
100% Free China Inernships - No Scams, No $ - Really...
The reason these China internships are free (aside from your air fare and meals) is because this is a DIY program and you will spend about 3 hours filling out paperwork and need to make a trip to your local China embassy or consulate to apply for a visa. If you do not have a verifiable 4 year degree from an accredited university do not bother to apply. Only uni grads are being accepted. Some of the companies are Price Waterhouse, IBM, Reuters, HP, etc. These are not the crap Chinese companies you get from the fee-based China internship companies.
The best thing about these internships is that they are real Fortune 500 and MNC companies, and they will sponsor your visa and housing. You only have to pay for your airline tickets and meal costs. Remember, The golden rule of China internships is that anyone who asks you to pay a fee for a China internship is a fraud. The bad news is that you will be competing with about 5 other applicants for every position so make your resume and personal statement strong and stress your willingness to learn Chinese.
