Meet Our Interns
My internship at Pakistan-China Institute was an extremely fulfilling experience. It enabled me to get an idea about what life after college would be like. During my time at PCI I was involved in research tasks especially focused on the Energy sector in Pakistan, this not only enhanced my research skills but also expanded my knowledge in this vitally important sector. I particularly liked the fact that interns at PCI form an integral part of the team and occupy a role which goes beyond administrative tasks. At PCI your work as an intern matters significantly and is critical to the success of projects. That kind of responsibility and trust is incomparable to other organizations and so you do not feel like an outsider. And it is for this reason that the bond you share with the PCI team lasts well after your internship has ended.

My experience as an intern at Pakistan-China Institute was exhilarating. I got the opportunity to work with the energetic team on different projects like covering an event for its Youlin Magazine, coordinating Chinese language classes and liaising with various local & international stakeholders to organize international level conferences. For me, the most important aspect was the acknowledgement of my dedication and hard work that i got from the Executive Director and the team and i was eventually offered a permanent position.
PCI's internship program is a unique platform for young professionals who endeavor to build a career in the development sector. For people who have an urge to learn, feel empowered and lead this is the perfect place!

Coordinator Pakistan-China Institute's Internship Program
Pakistan China Institute taught me how to accomplish wonders in a given time frame. It challenged my abilities and motivated me to reach the higher sky every day. The internship gave me great insights on how to coordinate project plans, scheduling and documentation for small but high profile projects, and it should be praised for creating a sense of initiative and problem-solving abilities within its employees. The institute enables the person to use different perspectives when coordinating research and handling the streamlined proposal developments in various tasks assigned. It is without doubt that the team at PCI provides an advanced admininistrative support entitling planned and assembled materials for high-profile meetings. I wish the PCI family great luck for its future endeavors.
