Manila Adventure

All this was possible because of my admissions counselor, Alex DiMeglio. We first connected in December of 2018 and he helped me throughout this whole process. Anytime I had a question, I emailed Alex, and he would always respond. If he didn’t know the answer to any of my questions, he made sure he gave his all to find the answer I was looking for. I never felt that Alex would ignore me, or would leave me on my own; he was always there whenever I needed assistance. Alex is truly amazing and made this whole process doable and I am very grateful to have spoken with him and build a relationship with him.

Career Up provided me with an amazing opportunity and has increase my chances for potential job search and it gave me a chance to explore another country. I truly recommend this company for anyone looking for internship opportunities and and a chance to travel

Manila

I loved my program because my internship was flexible with work hours. The usual work days are long in the Philippines because they are dealing with other companies in different time zones. They let me also take off before the weekend so I could be able to travel around the Philippines. I got the chance to go to Cebu, Coron, puerto Princesa, and do Nido while I was there for a month. I got to see whale sharks in Cebu. When I was in Coron, I got to make ready great friends with the tour guide and we still talk till this day. Everyone is so friendly in the Philippines. In el Nido, I did one boat tour. When I went to puerto Princesa, I got to see one of the wonders of the world the underground river and it was really interesting. I enjoyed my trip and wish I could’ve stayed longer.

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
when I stepped off the plane and got into my first grab ride.

Excellent Coaching & Internship

I never expected that it would be that great. I started with the career coaching which had helped me a lot, especially in looking more professional on my CV and LinkedIn. I have learned what to and what not to say during an interview, how to prepare for a phone/skype interview.

When I arrived to Manila, Philippines, I didn't know what to expect. Turns out to be the best abroad internship anyone could ask for. They offer great housing in one of the best areas in Metro Manila. I interned in one of the leading companies of E-commerce in the Philippines which could enrich your international skills. They also provide you with activities that you do with others interns around the Philippines.

Career Up Experince

My internship abroad was a excited and challenging experience for me. Prior to my internship in Singapore, I had never traveled away from home for more than 2 weeks. I had just finished my second year at university and I knew I needed to gain business experience to improve my CV. My university's professional advisor recommended I contact Career Up. They were very professional and organized. The process of obtaining my internship took just 4 weeks. It was certainly an exciting experience to travel to Asia and work alongside the locals. The Singaporean people are very friendly and I always felt welcome. On a number of occasions I was invited to birthday parties and other events. Overall, I had a wonderful experience!

Career Up Internship

There are a lot of intern abroad programs but I choose Career Up because they are the only company that actually tells you what internship you will get in advance. I know other companies will take you money even if you do not get a good internship.

The internship was very interesting. I did research for a company that made investments in solar energy projects. The others interns were from the US and all of the world. It was a lot of fun to travel with them. I think this is a good program overall for someone that wants to travel and get work experince.

My internship in Manila

I recently finished my event management internship in Manila with Career Up. It was really a great experience. I worked at a super fun company. They did all sorts of big music events and events for companies. There was always something new happening. The program was really easy. The people in the Philippines are really nice too. If you go make sure that you do a trip to visit Palawan island. It is so beautiful.

What would you improve about this program?
I think it was good overall.

SKP Internship

I did an internship with SK Pacific last summer. It was my first time living outside of the US and it was a big decision for me to go to Asia. I recently landed a great job and I wanted to write this review for other people like me who may be considering doing an internship abroad.

I was graduating in one year and I knew I needed to get internship experience in my industry. SK got me an internship at a good firm in Manila and made the process very easy. There were times that is was difficult living in a new country and working as an intern. However, now that I have found a great full time good, I can see the value of what I did.

After my internship, I returned home and completed my last year of college. This summer I started applying to jobs and my experience in Asia was the main thing that was discussed during my interviews. I had experience working at the same type of firms I was applying to and I know it made a big difference.

I wanted to write this review for other people like me who are considering doing this program because it is worth it. If you have a opportunity at a big firm back home or at your dream company you should of-course do that, but if you don't have a great internship you should seriously consider doing an internship with SKP.

Singapore Internship

I did an internship with SK Pacific in Singapore. It was an amazing experience overall. I was looking for an internship back home, but my career counselor suggest I think about doing a internship abroad. SK Pacific made the process very easy and I did not have to do any planning. I just had a skype interview with the company and the rest was arranged for me. All the interns lived in a nice condo appartments building. It was a fun experience to live with other students and travel around during the program. Singapore is a amazing place. I didn't know much about it before my trip, but it is one of the most modern cities I have ever seen. The architecture and food is amazing. There is also a very cool beach area called Sentosa where we would go almost every weekend.
