Life Changing Experience !

My Business development & Marketing internship in Hong Kong has been a life-changing experience and I am very happy with the overall outcome. Next Step Connections (NSC) has made sure that my application process is smooth and I am matched with companies that best fit my profile and expectations. Interning in Hong Kong allowed me to network with people around the world and the local working culture has provided me an insight into the level of competition in Hong Kong. NSC’s staff member, Jacky Mo’s continuous help and support have made sure that I was safe and had the best time even when the city was facing tough situations with continuous protests. The chance to explore the diversity, festivals and local culture has been a significant part during my internship period.

What was the most unfamiliar thing you ate?
My friends wanted me to try snake soup before I leave Hong Kong, since you can't usually find it in most places around the world.

Bing Helper of My Life

I got my first internship, which brought me the most significant job opportunity, out of Jacky Mo's enthusiastic attitude of his work. Jacky's professional and positive guidance lead me to an exceeding choice out of a long list of firms which he built up for me individually. Before encountered Jacky and his team, With no experience of finding such an essential turning point of my life, I was frustrated and didn't know what to do, thank God there're such a group of people concentrating on helping graduate students like me.

I was provided with the opportunity of a lifetime.

I came to Hong Kong under this program not knowing what to expect and I couldn't have been more impressed. They will take care of everything you need and you'll make friends along the way, for them it's not just business but a personal responsibility to make sure that you are enjoying your experience. Professionally, they found me an internship in a company of my favorite sector, they were supportive along my entire internship even after having a couple of bumps during this period. The final result has been me getting hired in the company, working on the sector I wanted and making great friends. If you are thinking about enlisting in this program, I couldn't recommend it enough. Hong Kong is an incredible place that will surprise you in many ways, make sure you are ready to enjoy it to the fullest. You'll be in the best hands!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Make sure you go open minded and ready to learn, get ready to enjoy and discover an incredible place. You'll be taken care of so make sure so discover all the hidden gems that Hong Kong offers.

Fantastic experience with Next Step Hong Kong

From the moment I contacted Next Step to the end of my internship, Next Step was there to make my life easier. The staff is very friendly and welcoming and are always willing to help you with anything and everything.

Next Step was able too find a company which closely related to the kind of place I wanted to work at. The company i worked for was an international one which made me feel right at home. Furthermore, the staff provided me with advice during my whole stay and also gave me valuable tips during the interview process.

A special thank you to Jacky Mo for guiding me throughout my time in Hong Kong. He was truly available 24/7 and always tried to find a solution to my problems.

What would you improve about this program?
The only suggestion I have for Next Step, is to spend a little bit more time explaining the housing situation in Hong Kong and perhaps take a bit more time meeting the other (more permanent) tenants of the flats before offering options as well as a ensuring that a few more basic necessities are available. Other than that, the experience was Amazing!

Second Time Joining the Internship HK Program

This is the second time joining HK internship program.
Last year, at a multinational insurance company, and this year at a investment company.

Both years, they were great. NSC has a lot of company lists, which will definitely make your resume shine. You will gain lots of hands-on experience, soft skills, as well as industry knowledge which will, for sure, be advantageous for your future.
The program is definitely worth the time and money.

The response from HK team (Jacky, for both years for me) is quite quick and detailed.
I am a HK resident, so I did not require a housing or visa. I heard from other reviews that process is smooth.

Precious experience in Prive

It was a so valuable experience in Prive Financial. All the employers are very responsible for teaching us how to get things done and always try to share all of the knowledges and experiences in Fintech to interns. Also, the work environment is very attractive and dynamic. People in here are so nice and friendly.
The consultant named Jacky in Next Step is proactive and so responsible on my case. I'm so lucky that Jacky followed my case.
I am highly recommending Next Step to you.

Great website-development internship in HK

I was really grateful of having this internship opportunity as a web-designer with Next Step Connections. They enriched my expeirience as a web-designer by giving my active supports and give me great space to explore my interest at the same time !

My supervisor is really great in helping me with the development process. We had active discussion during the process and it improved not only my technical skills but also my marketing as well as communication skills. I would recommend this intenship program for other university students as an oversea internship is really unforgettable and it was on of the greatest experience I have ever had !

What would you improve about this program?
I would expect more fun activities out of the working hours.
