I've got some great news. I'm coming to Shanghai in September to study Finance. I'll be doing a 3 year degree at the Shanghai University of Finance and Economics. If I manage to get through that I might stay on to do a Master's degree.
I would also like to find a part-time job to get some work experience and improve my Mandarin. This would look impressive on my CV when applying for a future job especially if the position was in a well-known international company. I would have the opportunity to increase my connections and network with important people which is necessary in my field of work.
I hope you will be able to help me find a part-time job. I know you have been working at HSBC for quite a while now and I was wondering if you know of any openings for students or internships. If you hear of any positions advertised by any of your clients please let me know.
I'm so excited about coming to Shanghai and I can't wait to see you.
