Gi2c China Internship - "Golden Opportunity" or Scam? What Do YOU Think?Watch
most likely a scam
For the rest of the world, Gi2C appears to be blatant scam. Gi2C has been asked many times at many forums including Scam.com, EslWtach.info, RealScam.com etc. to identify the Fortune 500 and MNC companies and “Top 50” university partners and there is only silence. Gi2c has never produced a single intern who confirms they were hired at a Fortune 500 or MNC firm. In fact, when confronted by a reporter, the owner (A Russian guy named Yuri) admitted that only 5% of their interns ever receive job offers. I wrote myself about this company almost a year ago in another thread with a very similar title. Apparently you missed it? http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/showthread.php?t=3227459&highlig ht=gi2c
I sincerely suggest you read the below and draw your own conclusions. If I was a Syrian refugee I would be damn glad I found Gi2c but if I am a uni grad looking for an international career abroad, Gi2c would be worthless resource and fast way to lose a lot of bucks and 3 months of my life.
Unfortunately, once people make contact with Gi2c, they are constantly spoon-fed Gi2c propaganda links that they have no time left to find the other comments like those above. So the key to staying safe with any program in China is to spend 15 minutes on Google to do your own independent homework.
I stole these images below from Scam.com. They speak for themselves. One Gi2C victim named Winnie Maliko told her story at a few forums and if you Google “Winnie Maliko, Gi2C, Scam, problems, visa” you will see she received emails from Gi2C telling her to lie on her visa application in order to get into China. This is advising her to commit a felony crime. Winnie by the way is a black national of France. The silver lining to this rather dark cloud is that you can get real Fortune 500 china internships free of charge that are 100% legit and Gi2c will never tell you about this even if you tell them you are broke.

I also want to say that despite all the negative publicity focused on Gi2c they are not the only china internship scam operation. There are many like ChinaInterns, GoAbroadChina, CRCC, etc. The golden rule to remember is that if anyone asks you to pay money for a China internship, or even a job, they are surely a scam.

The above screenshot indicates they have a long history of complaints going back to 2010. I found this at scam.com which has a bunch of interesting things to say about these cretins:
When you pay $1,000 for phony video testimonials, it is not hard to understand how the company got so many!
