“North Head was a fantastic learning experience for me. Not only did I learn about government affairs and public relations, but I got to do it in an international setting. It wasn’t an internship getting coffee; it was one where I was expected to contribute to the work they were doing. I got to learn so much more than I would have in the classroom; I learned about what the Chinese government is actually doing, as well as current events and the implications they have for China and the rest of the world.”

“The most rewarding aspect of my work at North Head was the people. I was able to work with a wonderful team and learn about the skills or perspectives that I don’t have from each member of the company. The staff and other interns inspired with their knowledge and passion and took a genuine interest in my development and summer experience.”

“The summer I spent at North Head should be one of the greatest experiences I ever had. Not only did I learn about public affairs among other professional knowledge here, but I got a lot of great friends as well. There arefew agencies that enable interns to involve in their core work, but I think North Head was really generous on this, and I appreciate it very much. All in all, I really value the time we spent working and fighting together at work, and I will never forget the things I have learnt during every enjoyable lunch time. Thanks to all at North Head!!!”
