Chris studied Chinese and History at West Virginia University.
Passion for languages leads WVU grad to China
When Chris Belfoure graduated from West Virginia University in May 2010, he didn’t have to worry about finding a job in the United States because he already had one—in China.
Chris will be a professional English trainer at EMC Worldwide in Shanghai, China, a company that develops software technology. While there, he will teach a class to help people better develop their business strategies and communication skills when working with Western companies.
“I want to be a small part of the bridge linking two large countries,” Chris says.“I hope I can diminish the misunderstandings between them.”
June marks Chris’ move to China, but he doesn’t go into the situation blindly. He has studied abroad on cultural trips to the area with WVU’s Chinese Department as well as worked for Zondy Cyber Group, an international business company, serving as an affiliate with the National Society of Collegiate Scholars.
