Internship Program

We believe that a good internship program is key to the empowerment of young, aspiring professionals.

Benefits of an Internship

Internships have become a very popular option for students to gain opportunities for employment and to hone their skills. At Life Solutions, we see it as a mutually beneficial partnership. Both parties, the intern and us, will grow tremendously together through the duration of the internship.

1. Youth Empowerment and Social Responsibility

At Life Solutions, we recognize how much an internship could help students take their first step into their professional career. By offering an internship program, we are encouraging skills development by teaching and mentoring aspiring professionals to hone their communication, cultural diversity, interpersonal, and business skills. Moreover, we believe that our internship program helps students not only build their resume but creates opportunities for their future. Internships are catalysts for students to position themselves to open doors for future professional opportunities. They are one of the key empowerment sources that boosts confidence for a young, growing, eager-to-learn student just beginning to discover their passion and career focus.

It’s a well-known fact that graduating students with paid or unpaid internships on their résumé have a much better chance at landing a full-time position upon graduation. Internships provide opportunities to building industry contacts, add value to their resumes and on occasion these may develop into permanent positions.

2. Cultural Diversity

Not only do internship programs encourage students to discover their passion, they promote cultural diversity at the work place. At Life Solution, we work with Waterloo Works, a Co-op program offered by the University of Waterloo (Ontario, Canada). Canada is one of the most culturally diverse countries in the world and so we get students from diverse backgrounds. This diversifies our human capital and experience sharing for all members of our team. Not only can Life Solutions learn from their fresh, worldly perspectives, our interns also get to learn about how we do business in China and manage day-to-day operations in the exciting city of Shanghai.

3. Unique Perspectives

One of Life Solution’s core values is to be open to new ideas. Bringing in young interns from different university programs and cultural backgrounds adds value to what we do through the sharing of unique perspectives. Not only is there a cultural gap, there is also a generation gap that allows for fresh ideas that would have otherwise taken more time to curate and identify. Having social media and internet-savvy minds, interns are quick to gather the information they need to learn in order to do tasks. Their fresh young minds and extra sets of hands are helpful to the team as well as giving them unique insights, which can help us to better meet the needs of our of diverse customers.

Yangtze River Plastic Pick Up

We see it on our social media feeds, we hear about it in documentaries, we may have been taught about it in school: Plastic.

Just one single plastic foam cup takes 50 years to degrade. Plastic bottles, one of the most commonly used plastics, can take up to 450 years to degrade! Here at Life Solutions, we wanted to see how these kinds of numbers come to life in Shanghai and to make a positive difference to improve water quality and ecosystem health.

On August 8th 2018, Life Solutions partnered with Green Initiatives to learn more about our local environment and make a positive difference for marine life and ecosystems.

The team was briefed with facts and statistics before and during the rubbish clean up. The location Green Initiatives chose was Baoshan Wusong Pao Taiwan Wetland Forest National Park. This important National park is a “protected” area located on the last section of the Yangtze delta, facing the northeast shore of Chongming island.

“It is an ecosystem of special interest, adapted to changing conditions of a littoral marshland with fluvial and oceanic influences. Besides a rich variety of flora, supported by rich alluvial sediments and abundant humidity, the salty winds and flooded soils’ variable conditions affect the development of wetland communities. The shoreline is permanently exposed to the influence of tidal oscillation, water currents and the river flow, resulting in a high erosion of nutrients and soil particles that are dynamically balanced with the constant input of rich river sediments.”

Life Solutions and Green Initiatives staff worked all day picking up trash along the Yangtze River. Feeling this was an important educational and socially impactful experience, we felt proud to help protect the river water and the organisms living in the wetland.

Our Partners

At Life Solutions, we constantly work towards our mission of inspiring China’s transition to clean and healthy drinking water through our water filtration products, services and our Corporate Social Responsibility work with our partners.

To address global challenges like plastic waste, water pollution and water quality, we need to collaborate. Here are some examples of how we work with our not-for-profit and social enterprise partners to create value and social impact.

In order to create true social impact, support environmental sustainability and long-term, mutual business success, we look for partners who share similar values and goals, have the capability to create shared value and commit to the long term.
