Rico here, CEO @Source Find Asia.
Our little startup is getting so mature these days, it's recruiting international interns!
We're looking for 1 or 2 ambitious and open minded, hustlers to work part or full-time. Mainly at our office in Guangzhou, China for 2 - 3 months & (potentially) 1 month in Chiang Mai, Thailand - this summer.
For those candidates out of school, there will be the possibility of a long-term position at the end of the internship.
So Who Are We?
Source Find Asia is a manufacturing consulting startup based in Southern China.
My business partner ChinaMike and I started the company out of our apartment, while I was teaching English part-time in China.
In the 3+ years since, we've graduated to an office downtown, 5 employees (2 full-time, 1 part-time locals & 2 part-time online), managing orders worth 6 & 7 figures (USD) and a dynamic portfolio of products we've made.
We develop and implement time tested strategies tailored to a client's supply chain.
Whether it’s research and insight into new markets, purchasing and manufacturing solutions, product development, or entry into dynamic Asian markets, Source Find Asia provides a host of consulting services that fit their physical product business.
On top of our “critically acclaimed” Source Find Asia YouTube Channel :P we host a fun and informative podcast on international business, lifestyle, crowdfunding and manufacturing called the Made in China Podcast.
