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!

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.
