Communication of Interview outcome
A few days after the interview is concluded the outcome is communicated with samples of offers from our Host Companies.  This will include job descriptions, company profile of internship host Companies as well as location.  This will be accompanied by an official invitation to participate in our program.
Internship Offers
We require that in order to proceed, applicants make a deposit payment to proceed to the next level.  After the deposit is received, participants are given as many offers as possible, beginning with 3 within 3-4 weeks of us marketing their Profile (CIP created) and CV to our Partnering companies on their behalf.  We also help participants select options by outlining opportunities associated with the offer.  When necessary, we make available our experts to communicate with applicants who are struggling regarding their selection.  If at this stage any client is not willing to proceed with our program, a full refund of their Paypal deposit is made.  (Please refer to our Terms and Conditions page if greater clarity is desired)
Acceptance and confirmation of offer
Once a particular offer is accepted by the prospective intern, we sign a contract with the Host Company and perform all the necessary due diligence with them on behalf of our participant.  At this stage, the deposit is still enough for us to make all necessary arrangements like accommodation, language classes, tour programs etc, but it is highly recommended that participants begin making payments toward their investment.  This also helps us and the Partnering Company to know that the applicant is truly interested and taking the partnership seriously/maturely on their end.
After all is set, participants must make final payment and again the time frame is determined by the applicant and our sales executives.  CIP has a very relaxed refund policy and we mean very relaxed when compared with many other service providers.  This is for the sake of our applicants, to make sure they feel comfortable and secure with us.  All of us working here at CIM have either moved to China because of the many available opportunities it provides at this time in history, or are native to China but have traveled abroad for school, work, etc in the past.  Because of this, we know the difficulties and anxieties which naturally accompany coming to a new place, being unfamiliar with foreign systems, as well as which companies/people are trustworthy and reputable.  This is why here at CIM, we strive to give you not only a quality experience and product, but make the process it as stress-free and easy as we are able, in order to be sure you are getting what is promised and that you feel secure in making a financial commitment and investment in your future.  
Bingo!!! You Are Welcome!!
