What our interns say:
 

Working as an intern in AmCham HK is definitely a life-changing experience! Not only I have gained new knowledge related to my academic studies (i.e. American Studies), but also acquired hands-on experience beyond the textbook. It is my pleasure to be one of the members of the Social Media and Communication Team in which I am able to unleash my potential and develop creativity. Thank you so much for this precious opportunity and I hope to see my colleagues again in the future!

Working at AmCham amidst the fast-changing socio-political environment in Hong Kong is an invaluable experience. Through conducting various research on the latest policies such as the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act and National Security Law, I gained so much insight on how US-Hong Kong relations would affect the international business community. AmCham provided me the opportunity to meet different important business professionals, which expanded my knowledge of the field and prepared me to work in the transnational and culturally diverse world.

Beginning my internship during the escalation of U.S. - China trade tensions and in the midst of the extradition bill debate, I was provided the opportunity to engage first-hand with the issues that were being covered on the front page of the news. In one month, I crafted talking points for our upcoming D.C. advocacy trip, researched the conflicting perspectives regarding the Fugitives Offenders Ordinance and sat in on meetings with U.S. congressional staffers. AmCham allowed me to better understand Hong Kong's growing role in Asia Pacific; it is the optimal place for anyone seeking opportunities in international affairs.

Interning at AmCham during a dynamic time where the socio-political climate has been changing rapidly has been exhilarating. Through this internship, I was able to gain first hand insights on the transpacific politics while understanding the mechanics of the business world, especially within the region of Hong Kong and China. This invaluable opportunity allows interns to build an extensive network, experience a blend between the social and corporate advocacy, and create strategies that keeps Hong Kong relevant and sustainable. If you are looking to be an advocate of change, interning at AmCham is a vital hands on experience.

Few organizations seem to accord as much faith in its interns as AmCham. In one month I visualized data, crafted an entire document with policy recommendations for the government, attended a conference on Hong Kong's Smart City initiative, zipped around Central interviewing various professionals, contributed to press releases, advised businesses on regulatory conditions, and met new friends as well as the most welcoming staff. Racking your brain every step of the way, AmCham throws you straight into the maelstrom that is international affairs.
