Summer Internship Abroad

During my 6 weeks in Hong Kong, I had a fantastic time! Everyone there was super nice and I learned a lot about Hong Kong and my internship. I liked where we were placed for our housing. It might be considered small, but the view I had from my room was amazing. My internship placement went well too! I was able to do a lot of cool digital marketing and content creation. Last but not least, the event excursions we went to were really enjoyable. Overall, I had an amazing time in Hong Kong from the food, social events, to my internship. I learned a lot and gained so much experience in a short amount of 6 weeks. A huge shoutout to The Intern Group Hong Kong team for doing such a fantastic job. I honestly had a great time and would recommend everyone to do an internship abroad :)

Amazing International Internship Experience

My degree program has a required Capstone “course” that can be filled either by taking a class, conducting research, or having an internship in the field. The InternGroup was very understanding, matching me with a company that met all of my University programs criteria. It talking with other members in the program, it felt like we were all given individual attention and support to meet our individual goals.

The InternGroup also hosted very fun tourist trips and meals. I liked that the meals were hosted all over the city, and while optional, were great opportunities to meet the other interns from around the world.

Having just secured a full-time job, and gone through the interview process, I know that my international experience made my resume stand out - my time in Hong Kong became a topic of discussion in every interview I had.

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
Honestly, it was landing at the Hong Kong airport, having been fairly calm before my trip it felt like I was hit hall of a sudden with intense nerves. So I cannot stress enough how convenient the Airport pick up and drop off was at the start and end of my program.

Great Experience

This was a great experience in Hong Kong! The support I received was great and there are weekly activities organised for us to explore our location! This allowed me to establish friendships with people from a variety of backgrounds which made me realize that despite our differences, there are always ways we can connect with one another! I would definitely recommend this program! This program is very international and made me understand how to build a professional circle of your own. I feel like this program allowed me to discover my weaknesses and strengths in a professional sense, which will allow me to develop further as a working professional. There are many industries and areas offered in this program which makes is very suitable for individuals with different career paths!

What would you improve about this program?
More destinations in the future! Despite the huge number of cities the program offers, adding some more less known cities would be interesting!

Hong Kong 5 Week Internship

Having TIG find you housing, plan your events, and assist with finding a job helped a lot with having my 5 week internship be stress free. I was hesitant at first as I thought TIG was a scam but soon after I applied and started doing more research, I noticed that there a lot of success stories that came out of TIG over the years

My experience at The Red Flag Group (the company I interned at) has enhanced my job search significantly even though it was my first work experience. My manager went out of her way to teach me skills that have been essential in my job search since I finished working there.

Overall, I think that TIG HK provides a great opportunity to gain experience in a beautiful city like Hong Kong while providing the support to visit famous attractions and meet many other people within the program.

Fantastic experience in HK!

The intern group provides secure accomodation and tips for making sure your internship experience is worthwhile. I interned for 2 months and I can honestly say I had the best experience when it came to making new friends, getting to know some of my colleagues and most importantly whether I wanted to pursue consultancy as a career after I completed the program. With the intern group’s help, I was able to secure a position in a financial services consultancy company, which allowed me to gain a wide depth of knowledge and experience through my mentor. Although, my first week started off mandane, I was later given more responsibilities with projects.

Nevertheless, I had a great time also getting to explore Hong Kong people from all around the world - hiking and taking part with many excursions provided by the intern group. Definitely a worthwhile experience.

A memorable first step!

Finding housing, planning your events, and finding a job is a rather big task, especially when you don't have the experience or knowledge. With The Intern Group, I was able to see a lot of what Hong Kong had to offer, live in a rather comfortable area with all the other interns, and get valuable life and work experience. I also appreciate them helping me get a visa. Going to theme parks, cooking events, and getting to see Lantau and Macau is something I'll cherish for a long time. It also helps that I was able to grow as a character while I was there and was able to live in Hong Kong, a place I really wanted to be in! I got to experience the city life, buying from the small corner store, and enjoying the most delicious food from the small restaurants you can find. I am very thankful for them, and I highly recommend them!

What would you improve about this program?
More arranged lectures with public speakers for job and life skills, and to hang out afterwards.

3 Month Internship in HK

I'll start by saying that I was worried that the Intern Group was a scam. I learned pretty quickly that this was not the case.

I had an amazing time during my 12 week program in Hong Kong. I thought the location of where I lived was fantastic; conveniently close to public transport, to social scenes and to eating locations. The apartment itself was good; modern and clean. Living with other interns is also some of the best fun you can get.

Now I will preface to say that your experience will differ greatly depending on the place you intern at; I was SUPER lucky with an amazing company (APV), who were just wonderful.

The Intern Group do a good job of making you feel comfortable and settling you in. Any questions or doubts you have, they'll do all they can to address those issues. The events are a lot of fun, and are a great way to meet other interns; highly recommend going to them.

Thanks a lot Intern Group!

Best Experience!

The Intern Group did an amazing job at placing me with my internship. It’s as if they really knew who I was and what would be best for me. The internship I had was truly life changing and I owe it all to The Intern Group. Our accommodations were also great. We stayed in a more residential part of Hong Kong which was great because we were able to go to the island when we wanted to with ease, but didn’t have to live among the crazy bustle of the city at all times. The Intern Group gave me life long friends and experiences that I wouldn’t trade for the world. They treated us with respect and like adults which you don’t always find in an organized group setting. If you have the means and the opportunity to, please go to Hong Kong with The Intern Group—you won’t regret your decision.

What would you improve about this program?
I worked on Saturdays and so I lost a lot of money because I couldn’t do the excursions and I would have either liked a refund or would have liked TIG to be more aware of the days/hours of the job they place us in since they are the ones that placed us.
