Unforgettable experience in Tokyo

This is my experience in Tokyo Program.
Really recommend if you, like I was, are looking for a international experience.
Fast and easy to apply, within 3 months everything was scheduled for my program.
The TIG team in Tokyo is great, especially the experience coordinator Erika. Professional and easy going person, always ready to help if issues happen.
I had some misunderstandings during my the placement with the internarional team at the beginning of the process (that's the only reason for the 4/5) but no big deal.
Of course there are things that can be managed better, but for what concerns the overall experience in Tokyo is a 100/100.

Pros
  • Great in person assistance
  • Beautiful organised events
  • Building with the others
Cons
  • Not really clear communication during the application process
  • Often internship are not paid

Tokyo Internship

Definitely one of the best experiences I've ever had. Undoubtedly, it made me grow a lot personally and better understand the work environment. I think the most valuable aspect of the internship was the help provided in order to make sure everything went smoothly, from the process of the interviews with the companies to the actual experiences in Tokyo. The staff was very friendly but professional enough to make you feel in a safe and serious environment.

Something to have in mind, the internship is as serious and valuable as you make it to be. Of course, they try to find you the best most fitting company, but I think it's your responsibility to take it seriously.

It was an experience that made me grow tons as a person and throughout the experiences made me realize the place I want to live in thanks to the opportunities it offers and incredibly safe and fun enviroment.

Pros
  • They make the process a lot easier
  • They provide help 24/7
  • Improve your CV and work experience in general
Cons
  • The accommodation is a bit expensive

Amazing! 😊

I really enjoyed the experience because I learned so much during this time and there was a good balance between work and fun. I have done things that I wouldn't have done otherwise just by working at home and it gave me an idea about what it will mean to work in the type of environment I want to work in. I would definitely recommend the program to anyone who is fresh out of university or has some time between a course and another. It's been an experience I will never ever forget. I really wish I could have stayed longer.

What would you improve about this program?
Not much, just the bed in the accommodation and I would add a small lamp on the desk.

An Invaluable Experience

This experience truly blew away all expectations. With the help of the experience coordinators and the ease of The Intern Groups process it makes the whole experience memorable and unstressful. The company I was interning for was amazing, they were nothing but accommodating and welcoming, while challenging me to do the best I can in whatever work I did. I learned valuable skills while also improving on the skills I did have to work at a professional level. I met lifelong friends and made a network of professional acquaintances. It was the best experience I could've had with traveling abroad and an internship experience.

A good taste of how it is like to live in Japan

I have been to Japan quite a few times but coming for an internship is a brand new experience for me. Coming through the intern group I was able to experience actually living in Japan and not just being here as a tourist while they take care of most of the more complicated things. They connect you to great companies, and the staffs are very helpful throughout the whole program. A special shoutout to the Experience Coordinator who worked really hard planning events to make sure everyone has an amazing time during their time in Tokyo.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
I will talk to people who live in the same apartment or from the same program more.

unforgettable experience!

I wish i could extend my time in the program! This was a once in a lifetime experience that i will never forget. The friends i made and the work experience i got was second to none. Plus you get to explore all aspects of Tokyo on the weekends which is super awesome. The events that are planned are really well thought out and really elevate your experience. I would happily do this experience again in Tokyo or somewhere new.

I would recommend this program to anyone wanting to try something new and get out of their comfort zone whilst building experience in their chosen career. After doing this experience i have not only grown more through industry experience, but also i have managed to develop more as a person by trying new foods and exploring places i never thought i would.

What was the most surprising thing you saw or did?
the most suprising thing was being able to see mount Fuji up close and really apprciate all of its beauty

Great Experience

The Intern Group is an amazing company, I made great friends and had so much fun at all of the events. The staff made me feel really welcomed, safe and cared for. I'd 10/10 come back and recommend this to my friends. This program really helped me grow as a person and helped me find what I'd like to do when i get older. I'm super thankful for my time here and I wish i had more! I'm going to be sad when I leave but I know i can take this experience with me anywhere i go and apply it to where i end up. The friends and people I met are going to be my friends for the rest of my life (hopefullY) everything I learned here made me more mature and ready for my future. I'll miss the intern group

What would you improve about this program?
It's great no need for improvement. I had such a great time I can't think of anything else I want to change.

A Summer over seas.

I was so hesitant about doing a internship over seas since I’m a anxious person. But it was the best choice I could have ever made. I was so well versed in the culture and different ways of life. I got to do so many awesome things from different workshops and activities to even singing karaoke with random natives. I got to learn my favorite places and not so favorite places. My internship at flip productions was really helpful, I got to learn a lot about me but also learn professional skills to help with my every day life and my future. I dealt with a lot overseas like a loss of a family member but everyone was so kind. I’m so glad I stepped outside my comfort zone and made the right choice. I made friends who I still talk to and want to move back to Tokyo in the future! If you have any questions reach out to me on social media! @ _.heyitsmeg._ id love to share more of my experience.

What would you improve about this program?
My accommodation, I was in a separate accommodation then most of the people in my program. I felt isolated and just wanted other people around.
