Mission: Gi2C’s mission is to create a community of resources bridging the gap between those who need help and those who want help. We are not only a full service internship provider but also a group of like-minded people with knowledge and expertise about providing quality ...
I worked at Gi2C Group as an intern
None. Really, none. This is not a fake review, or an angry review from a jerkish customer - this "service" is a scam, plain and simple.
When I say scam, I mean a SCAM. Without question, a 100% scam. Not suitable for anyone.
Here is their business model:
1. Find ANY company in China which will take foregin interns (These company's will take you for free, if you apply to them directly)
2. Polish the company's image in their pitch to you and make it seem like this is some kind of "exclusive deal", when in reality it is literally just a normal Chinese company which will accept (nearly) free interns (who wouldn't?)
3. Charge an exorbitant fee for something which you can get for free by using google and emailing.
I wish I had known this BEFORE I paid my money. There is no personalization. No one at the company you intern at will care about you, and they will be shocked if you tell them that you PAID to be there. It's literally matching stupid foreigners with random company's who essentially say "You wanna send me some foreigners for a few months? Sure, why not...". That's it. The end.
Here's what you can do instead, for the same amount of money:
1. Buy a ticket to Shanghai.
2. Rent an airbnb for 3 months.
3. Email company's in SH and tell them you can work for almost nothing, because you want experience.
With this, you'll still have spent less $$ than you will for gi2c's "service", you won't be in the country illegally working (that's right, gi2c doesn't give proper visas), and you can actually choose the company for which you will be working for pennies.
Advice to Management
If I prevent one person from being scammed as I was, I will have done my job...
I applied through other source. I interviewed at Gi2C Group.
Tried to convince me sales employees earned 20-30k+ per month with commission, after starting I realised other employees were told similar statements. They weren't prepared to offer a legal working visa either.
