    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in April 2013.

    Interview

    The beijing office posted internship opportunities on the Chinese social media site Weibo. Written an email to contact them, received quick response, soon had a telephone interview and later follow up telephone calls and email exchanges. I wasn't in Beijing at the time, so didn't have a face-to-face interview. all in all quite straightforward, as long as you show passion and ways you can contribute to the office.
