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!

The two-month internship at AmCham’s Government Relations and Public Affairs Department has bestowed upon me a deeper understanding of the business environment in Hong Kong and the recent topics such as smart city, GBA, RCEP, and Corporate Social Responsibilities. Throughout the process of drafting the public address submission, I have gained opportunities to talk to senior managers from our member companies and have a deep look into the interests and challenges for various industries. Overall it is an enriching experience that exposes me to the fascination of the business world.

My internship in Government Relations and Public Affairs at AmCham gave me incredible insight into the socio-political landscape in Hong Kong and its relationship with the local business environment. Contributing to press releases and drafting policy recommendations, I was given great responsibility from the very first day, and had the opportunity to learn as much as possible while developing my research skills. Working at AmCham was definitely an invaluable experience that allowed me to build a diverse and extensive network, and gain a broad understanding of the business world in Hong Kong.

The internship at AmCham’s Membership and Engagement Department is undoubtedly life-changing, fruitful, rewarding, and most importantly, a golden chance for me to leverage my skills to solve problems and bring impact to society. Throughout the internship, my key responsibilities are supporting committees in assisting Chamber’s advocacy and driving engagement in professional development and industry relations. I have gained invaluable experience in communicating with senior-level executives in multifarious business activities held by AmCham and cultivated a broad understanding of Hong Kong’s current business environment.

It was a great honor to return to AmCham this year to assist with the writing of the Policy Address Submission. Researching and coordinating policy recommendations from AmCham’s business committees not only deepened my understanding of Hong Kong’s sociopolitical environment, but also how the Government and the private sector can work together to pursue interests for the public good. Lastly, I would also like to thank the AmCham Team for being so accommodating and mentoring me throughout my whole internship — this was an experience that I will definitely never forget!
