London - 5 month Social media agency internship

Hello,

I have been interning at the Rabbit Agency for 5 months. The experience has been very valuable. Doing something completely different I think is always worth your while. But the company is a very interesting company, with high standards and amazing clients.
They also gave me any opportunity I wanted, and I have been involved in everything I wanted to be involved with.

I had found a place to stay, so did not make use of your offer on housing.
Eventually I have paid 1500 pounds for a 5 month intern experience.
Giving me a good place to go to (the internship) and the opportunity to meet people and go to 3 events.
The events were of high quality, perfect, I'd say.
And I think Arianna and Mona did a really good job at making us feel at home. Always enthusiastic and trying to get everyone to talk to eachother. And may I note, that the 3 events a side, they came up with a lot of idea's on the side and took part in those (I went) to as well.

Unfortunately I have not found a real connection with the people I have met, this may be because I am from the Netherlands, this may be because there were not that many guys. And a side from the events I have only met with one other intern on one other occasion.
I think the only thing you could improve is think through about what the group could do after the event is over. I found that after the event was done, most people just went home. While this might of been a good opportunity to go and talk some more in a pub maybe and really get to know each other.

The question: would you recommend this program to a friend?:
I have answered with No, I would not.
I don't think paying 1000-1200 pounds for a spot in an internship programme is the right price. The only reason I went for this program, is because I was extremely late with my preparations for internship/work, I did not feel that I could organise it myself on the short notice I had.
Certainly, most of my friends, would never pay the amount of money that I have paid.

Thanks a lot for the valuable experience though!

Cheers,
Mels

P.S the year completed button does not have a 2014 option.
P.S.2 I have rated the 'housing' question a 7, because I heard people say it was alright and close to where other interns were staying.

Valuable experience

I spent summer of 2013 working for one of the leading PR companies in London. Huge thanks to Intern London for the opportunity. I was involved in the work process. I did lots of research, client approaches, helped develop PR strategies etc. I had the chance to work with major clients and it was definitely a valuable experience which helped me get a job afterwards.

Also thanks for the leisure programme. The bike tour in Paris was one of the most memorable moments of summer 2013.

Great way to set yourself apart!

I had an incredibly fulfilling experience with the Intern Group. I learned more than I hoped for through my internship and also had a great time getting to know the people involved with the group! Many people are amazed at the fact that I have global work experience this early on and it has been a great way to set myself apart in such a competitive job market. The ability to say that I have this experience has been overwhelmingly beneficial. I would do it over again in a heart beat!

What would you improve about this program?
If I had to change one thing about the program, it would be the level of communication before you leave for the trip. Although all of the necessary things were taken care of, I was kind of nervous about how things would pan out once I arrived and wished I could have had more information at the onset.

An awesome experience !!

I spent a month and a half in London, working at the 2012 London Olympic Games. An incredible opportunity I would have never got without IL. Got to meet students from all over world, in a great atmosphere. The IL staff are all amazing people, really caring about making us spend a wonderful time. And I was among the first interns, so it can only get better !

What would you improve about this program?
Choosing the host family can be a bit risky, they are not all as nice and relax... and not always close to the center of London, which raise a lot the price of transports...
If the internship is paid, the way of being paid (by cash, cheques, or directly on a foreign bank account) should be well defined before the begining of the experience, to make sure there are not too much fees and problems of transfer.
