Absolute Internship Review

Absolute made my internship and trip overseas possible! London has always been a place I wanted to travel to. I loved my time in London, and Absolute delivered great support to myself throughout my entire time in England. Giulia helped me with so many “inside tips” on what to explore and what to do in London which was really useful. I loved the housing, my internship and the amazing people that I met through this incredible program.

I would highly recommend Absolute Internship.

My winter in London

I was recommended to join Absolute Internship by my Uni in Australia and I am glad I did, it was a life changing experience! I met so many lovely people, visited so many beautiful places and got the chance to intern and gain experience. I miss the program and everyone so much.
London is a great city to start a career in the creative industry and the experience has definitely opened my eyes on the industry and my career path.
The on site team is simply perfect for the program. They make you feel comfortable from day one. They really go out of their way for your experience to be unique and for you to enjoy every single moment of your program.
Thank you for such a great time

ABSOLUTE is the Total Package!!

Absolute was the best experience that I was able to have. The program is a perfect mix of work and fun. You intern Monday to Friday and then in the weekend you have lots of time to explore the city. I loved my internship when I was there. I was interning at a cool startup. Not as formal as you think, which I preferred and I learned a lot while being there since the founders and the startup team taught me a great deal about things such as SEO, online marketing and strategy which really inspired me. The absolute staff is extremely accommodating and helpful. The accommodation is great as well, clean, well-located and all the interns live together which is awesome.
Best summer I ever had!

Awesome program!

The Absolute Internship Program is a fantastic way to experience London while gaining work experience at the same time. I met lots of interesting and different people from all around the world and made life-long friends through the program.

Everyone in the program is doing different types of internships, so you have interns doing business, public relations, marketing and many other cool industries. Everyone hang out with each other after work and in the weekends since Absolute does a great job putting together events every week.

I would highly recommend the program for anyone that is looking for a life changing experience!

EXCELLENT!!

I completed the one month program in London. I always wanted to visit Europe and I am happy I chose to go with Absolute Internship. Program staff were amazing, my internship was great and the people I met through the program awesome. I wish I have stayed longer. I’m still in close contact with all the other interns who were part of the program.
I would recommend traveling to London for an internship and the program to anyone considering work experience overseas.

Thank you guys for a great summer!

Amazing summer!!

I had an amazing time interning in London through Absolute Internship. I always wanted to go to London, but didn't think it was an option.
I wouldn't have known where to start in my international internship hunt without the help of Carla! She literally took care of everything from my UK visa to preparing me for my interviews and then also hosting me in London. I'm still in touch with people that I met through the program and everyone I knew had the time of their lives living in London and interning there for the summer. I could not have been happier with my experience and program choice.

The program is not only about the internship, the program activities and the excursions that are part of the program is what makes it stand out. They are all well organized, fun and add tremendous value to the students.

I would highly recommend this program to anyone who is thinking about interning overseas, meeting amazing friends and build a global professional network of business connections.

Excellent Experience

My summer experience with Absolute Internship was above and beyond expectations. Interning in a big city like London was a great test for me coming from a small town – this was a great opportunity to see if I’d like life in a big city after graduation and I absolutely loved it.

I had the opportunity to meet incredible people from all across the US and Europe through my internship and the program. I made great friends and traveled to Germany, Italy and Switzerland after the program with some people from the program which was an unforgettable experience.

I highly appreciated the on-site support from the Absolute Internship Team, which was really helpful especially when it comes to all the program activities, and trips that were part of the program. They were incredibly resourceful and always ensured to walk the extra mile to help us.

An excellent experience!

Fashion Internship in London

A well rounded, exciting, fun and organized experience supported by the lovely Absolute Internship team. From day one my application submission, the team has been responsive, prompt and helpful with all my inquiries. Absolute Internship made me feel at ease during my summer in London, which sometimes it’s not easy for a young woman.

As part of the program I was interning for a reputable fashion brand in London from Monday to Friday. Each week there are planned events that Absolute puts together and organize. They were all brilliantly organized and fun especially the weekend to Paris which I will always remember.

This program is a unique experience to see a new culture but also meet amazing people from all parts of the world in a safe and organized way.

Great program!

Wonderful Experience with Absolute Internship

I took part of the one month program in London this summer and I found each and every element of my program organized, structured, challenging and fun. The actual internship could not have been better. I was matched with a startup company in one of the world’s hottest incubators, mentored by the boss personally and welcomed into a fast-paced, fascinating and challenging work environment that I loved.

I was provided with tasks that matched my skills and interests, which was perfect since I was only in London for a month. A win-win for both me and the company.

The events that are part of the program were one of the best aspects of the program since the people you meet through Absolute is what makes this experience stand out. I had the chance during my short month to go to Paris, Oxford, Stonehenge, Bath and so many more places! It’s such a wonderful experience to intern in London and I really recommend doing it with Absolute Internship. The support you receive from the team is fantastic. Thank you Giulia and Carla for a great summer!

Keep up doing great things with Absolute!

Absolute Life-Changing Experience

I don’t think that people realize how much of an impact Absolute Internship and a summer away from home can have on a person like myself. This summer completely changed my outlook of my life and career thanks to Absolute!

I was able to live in the capital of Europe - London for two months doing a marketing internship. What a dream! Always wanted to travel abroad and visit Europe and I found out about the program by a simple Google research and thought it look great and just applied – I have no regrets.

The people and the community that this program has is amazing and priceless. This experience was definitely the best summer I ever had and I highly recommend this program.

Amazing.

Experience of a Lifetime

I've always wanted to travel and experience the world. However, I've always been too timid or afraid to travel by myself. In fact, this internship was my first time overseas without my parents. As a result, I was petrified. However, as soon as I arrived in London, the Absolute staff made me feel at home and were always there to comfort and support me when I needed them. Honestly, without them, I would have felt lost in the giant city of London!

Moving on, what better way to start the year then travelling to an amazing place and getting work experience on your CV. Honestly, I get to explore one of the most amazing cities in the world whilst getting valuable work experience. The work experience was amazing and my supervisor was possible the kindest person I have ever met. My internship was also a great opportunity to see what field I would like to work for in the future. Additionally, the work experience has given me an upper hand in the ultra competitive finance market in Australia.

My time in London was 2 months and although it's not possible to ever finish exploring London, the Absolute staff took me to amazing places in London I wouldn't have found myself(as well as taking me to Paris and Brussels). They took me to restaurants, tourist attractions, bars and other amazing places!

Lastly, the people I met on this trip were best people I've ever met. Everyone from Absolute, my internship and other interns were amazingly nice and caring. They made the experience an experience I'll never forget.

For people thinking of going on an Internship with Absolute, I highly recommend that you seize the opportunity and go! Yes, you may feel scared and home sick. But, that feeling almost disappears once you met the people and explore London. Plus your CV will thank you so MUCH in the years to come

The 'Absolute' Package

As a first law student I was constantly inundated with comments about gaining legal 'experience' and how integral it would be to succeeding in any professional career in the legal sector. Obviously, hearing all of this on the first year of a five and a half year degree terrified me; it was all too much, what if law wasn't for me after all? However, thanks to Absolute Internship I found a way to have an amazing once-in-a-lifetime experience without compromising on gaining professional experience in a Law firm that will look amazing on my CV for years to come!

In 2015 I was able to begin a new year in a new country KNOWING that I was about to do something that would set me up for life. Was I nervous? Of course! But Absolute organised the whole trip perfectly! Upon arriving in London we were greeted by the most caring and enthusiastic team of staff ever. Just knowing that I would have someone like this to talk to if anything didn't feel right was settling in itself, and upon meeting my fellow absolute interns I knew that I had definitely made the right decision. In just one short month I made friends for life that I would never get the opportunity to interact with if I hadn't been accepted onto the Absolute program.

Even though I completed the trip during London's icy winter (very different from the summer I had left behind in Australia) Absolute organised for us to see all the typical touristy sites and more! I had an marvellous time gallivanting through England and was awe-struck when we were informed that we would also be making a weekend trip to Paris! Throughout the entire month that I participated in the Program I was constantly amazed by the food, accommodation, resources and support that we received and I know that I was not alone in this.

The internship itself was also incredible! As someone who was really looking for confirmation that I had chosen the right degree, a lot was resting on my placement. However, the members of the law firm that I was fortunate enough to secure a place in were very friendly and, to my surprise, I was not just running around getting all the top lawyers coffee. Instead, I was given real tasks to complete which are sure to stand out on my resume! At the end of my placement all the employees of the firm gave me a wonderful send off and asked me to keep in touch and come back as soon as I wanted; so not only did I gain experience but also future contacts in my field (not to mention the excitement of getting to dress up in fancy work outfits)!

I could honestly ramble on about how amazing Absolute were all day, but in short, here is a summary of why Absolute is the absolute best:
1. The internships are perfectly catered to your wants and needs and Absolute does everything they can both before and during the trip to ensure you are satisfied with your placement;
2. The sights/trips are beyond belief. You will see things you have never experienced before and could never hope to have experienced without participating in the program!;
3. THE PEOPLE! Every single person I encountered on my trip was amazing; the staff, my fellow interns and my work colleagues at the firm. I have made lifelong contacts; and finally,
4. YOUR CV WILL THANK YOU.

Review Absolute Internship

During my PR internship in London which I was allocated as part of the program, my work was mostly focused on drafting press releases, communicating with clients via email and phone and assisting one of the Directors with dropping off samples to clients.

It was an incredible experience on a daily basis since this was my “real” first work experience and I was able to have real responsibilities, which I really appreciated from the company. What the program does excellently is the communication with us students. I truly appreciated the efforts that the absolute internship staff takes in speaking to us prior to coming to the program but also during the program making sure that we are were fine at all times. It made me feel that they really cared for us, which is important at least for me.

Besides from the amazing work experience, we had numerous day trips, sightseeing events and a trip to Brussels in Belgium that was all included through the program so there are plenty of things to do and you’re never bored.

I had so much fun this summer with Absolute Internship. The team behind the program and the ones running it is very helpful and caring.

This was the perfect summer for me.

Excellent program!

My Best Summer Ever

The program in London by Absolute Internship was excellent from start to finish, from enrollment to my last day in the program. The support from the Absolute team in London was always great, Thank you Carla, Giulia and all the rest of the team for an awesome summer for being there all the time!

I did an internship in a marketing firm which was exactly what I wanted to do. The best part of the program is the people you meet though, the program do a great job in selecting students from around the world and you bound really quickly with everyone and make friends. We had students from Morocco, Sweden, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Spain and so many other places.

The best thing about the program is the exciting activities that are organized. There are planned events and activities every week that you can choose to attend. My weekend in Paris was a dream come through literally – always wanted to go there and it was so well-organized. The accommodation was so also extremely clean and well-located.

Thank you Carla and Absolute Internship for the best summer I’ve had!
