This initiative is working to prepare the next generation of American experts on China who will be charged with managing the growing political, economic and cultural ties between the United States and China.

“We are seeing a strong upswing in our US Internship applications. The young people today within the US are concerned about their future and are taking proactive steps to ensure their success.” States Ed Holroyd Pearce, Director of CRCC Asia. “We are bridging a large gap for them and allowing them to structure their future and begin with positions that are relevant to their chosen career, whether it be in marketing, finance, or any other field.”

I had an accounting internship with a Taxation Agents organization and they were quick to welcome me with open arms.”States Kristen Howell a student from the University of Arkansas. “I met with several different department heads and even got to have a long and very informative meeting with the Chief Partner. I would recommend CRCC Asia to anyone looking for a complete cultural experience.”
