My Intern Group Review

The Intern Group has been a very nice experience for me. They have helped me to find an amazing 6-month intern job at the Australian Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong. After signing my contract, they helped me to apply my visa online. When I arrived, Sau (program advisory and visa officer of the Intern Group) was organising some online events when I was in quarantine.

On the same week that I left the quarantine hotel. He organised a dinner at the restaurant with other people from the Intern Group. It feels very nice to meet new people when you just arrived in a new city.

After that, during all my internship period. Sau was organising some visits and hikes around Hong Kong, which were very well organised and great! I’ve got the chance to meet a lot of interesting people from many different countries.

At the end of my internship, I succeed to find a trainee job at the Belgium-Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce. Sau helped me to apply for my new job visa! He was very kind with me and always tried to catch up with me. It is a pleasure to meet him, and I wish keeping hangout with him in the future if I stay even longer in Hong Kong.

Best wishes to you Sau and thank you to the Intern Group for this experience!

Excellent experience in Hong Kong

My experience was excellent.
I went to a 4 month internship program in Hong Kong. At first I didn’t know what to expect because it was my first time travelling with The Intern Group, but I can say that since the beginning they supported me with the whole process and I did not struggle at all to fill out the documents that they requested. During my stay, the customer service was phenomenal and they immediately answered any question or doubts I had. The city, the residence, the job and everything met my expectations.

What was the most unfamiliar thing you ate?
The most unfamiliar things were the Chicken Feet ot Crab eggs. It was my first time trying this kind of food and I liked it.

Human Resources Intern

The living conditions are great. And the city is beautiful. I met so many amazing people! I was also able to participate in some cool projects involving human resources and corporate wellbeing. Make sure that you choose a company that you can feel passionate about when applying. TIG is great at giving you the experience you want. Don't be scarred to discuss your needs with them.
Also, be sure to do more than just explore the city. Make sure to explore the many amazing hikes and beaches in Hong Kong.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Make sure to choose a company that you really feel good about, and not simply the first one by which you are interviewed. It pays to work on something you can be passionate about.

I had an amazing time interning in Hong Kong

I had the opportunity to intern in Hong Kong in a prime french company in their sourcing department. This opportunity was enabled by The Intern Group Hong Kong. I am very thankful for this opportunity that enabled me to increase my experience, expand my network and familiarize myself with the rich Cantonese culture. I blindly recommend enrolling in their program and also recommend taking an internship in Hong Kong that happens a great city to explore, hang out and have unique experiences. I would recommend Lan Kwai Fong over the weekend for outings and for networking with local and international professionals living in Hong Kong.

What was the most unfamiliar thing you ate?
I tried quite a few curious but delicious dishes such as Dim Sum, century-old eggs and got to attend a traditional tea cerenomy

Invaluable experience

The Intern Group has definitely opened the doors to my future career path & I'm very grateful for this! Even during a pandemic, my two coordinators Sau Yi & Joyce were fantastic to making sure everything was smoothe before I even arrived to Hong Kong - their support & organisation during such a hectic time was so so helpful. Once I was here, I was welcomed by their activities & I've met some people in the accommodation that was offered to top off my experience with them. I took away a lot from my internship & I networked with a lot of people ... I even extended my time in Hong Kong with their help of finding a new job here!

Hong Kong Social Media Marketing/Research Intern

This experience offered me invaluable amounts of personal and professional growth I wouldn’t have gotten in America. Through this internship I truly learned the meaning of hard work.

The Intern Group staff were always in contact with me assuring me if I needed anything throughout the entirety of the program I could go to them for help which was a big relief.

The housing accommodation was truly amazing and I will cherish and hold the connections I made with everyone for my entire life.

I would definitely recommend anyone thinking of an International Internship to take the opportunity!

What was your funniest moment?
Going out after work with coworkers to celebrate the successful focus group workshops we held and seeing a lighter side of my boss and coworkers was amazing to me.

Great Business Development training in Hong Kong

I did my Business Development training/internship in Hong Kong. It was a very interesting experience which boosted my career essentially. The Intern Group organized everything perfectly, in advance but also on premise. There was great support at all times from The Intern Group, they are very welcoming and professional. I arrived in the middle of the COVID crisis but with the help of TIG and the company in Hong Kong, it was not a big issue at all. TIG helped me to get the opportunity to work in an international company and learn about another industry and its global projects. I can definetly recommend this program without any doubts.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
Book a longer period of time. (more than 3 months)

Hong Kong Internship Program during Covid

Thank you to the TIG team for always been there every time I had a question and any kind of problems.
Because of the pandemic, there were a lot of problems with the flights, quarantines, and destinations, I had to change the first option from Melbourne to Hong Kong, and I have to say it was the best decision I could have taken, I had the best time there, the friends that I made, the experiences that I had, what I learned at a professional and personal level, the adventures, everything was better than I expected and that was because I always kept an open mind and a positive attitude.
Taking part in this program was one of the best decision I have taken, I recommend it to everyone interested in gaining professional experience and wanting to build a career abroad, but at the same time, you get to know a different culture, allowing you to grow in so many different ways. If things don't go as planned, don't worry, the TIG team will be there to help you out and figure out so you can have the best experience, but remember to always keep a positive attitude and an open mind.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
I would do it for a longer period of time, 8 weeks went just too fast!
