Last summer, 48 Lingnan students were selected to intern in 21 prominent companies and organisations in Shanghai and Beijing under The Chinese General Chamber of Commerce Mainland Summer Internship Programme and the Lingnan University Mainland Summer Internship Programme respectively. The eight-week internship enabled participants to learn more about the culture and operations of enterprises in mainland China and get better prepared for their future careers.
In addition to pre-intern training and activities in Hong Kong and the intern locations, participants were required to submit a programme report. Based on their overall performance in programme activities, work evaluation by employer and programme reports, several dedicated interns with outstanding performance were selected by a panel of judges.
An award presentation ceremony was held on 30 January. Year 3 social sciences student Mandy Chan was presented with the Outstanding Intern Award and six students received merit awards.
