Finnish Young Professionals Beijing announced the relaunch of the organizing team for the spring season of 2014. Similar to the past couple of years, we are planning to host events catering to interests of Finnish exchange students, interns and other young people living in Beijing.
First off, on Friday 11th of April, you can expect a relaxed get-together over free pizzas (courtesy of FBCB!).
You will have the chance to:
– Learn about the function and activities of Finnish Business Council and Young Professionals, about our events and how you can be a part of them.
– Get to know a couple of local Finnish professionals, who will tell us about what it is like to work as a foreigner here in China, and give tips for those of us interested in building a career here.
– Network with students from other universities, interns etc.
Outline (times approximate):
18.30 – 19.15: Grab a seat, mingle over pizza.
19.15 – 19.45: Introduction to FBCB and up-coming events
19.45 onward: “Working as a foreigner in China”, Q&A, free discussion
Venue: Take5 has been serving as the home-base for Finnish expatriates in Beijing for many years, hosting some more formal Finland-related events such as a celebration on Independence Day as well as the occasional Night of Finnish Karaoke.
Take5 is located just north of The Place (世贸天街, shìmào tiān jiē), only a 5 minute walk from Jintaixizhao subway station (line 10, Exit A).
