Makes the impossible possible

Can highly recommend Intern NZ! For one of my semesters as a Master's student at university, I could choose to either do electives or an academic internship - and as someone who's soon a graduate, I wanted to do an internship to get more experience and a taste for the different pathways of future career options. I've worked in a research library previously, but wanted to try out the museum world - so I set my goal to intern at a museum, preferably abroad to get international experience at the same time. I tried to do it on my own at first, but was dealing with both finishing my exams for the semester + never hearing back from the museums I had tried to contact. I then googled around and found Intern NZ & OZ, and decided to go for it - I could focus on my exams and hand over all the administrative things to someone else; someone who had the right contacts, connections, and made the whole process feel a lot safer and like it was actually do-able (while also being affordable!). Within no time, they had found my dream internship at a museum in New Zealand that fit my skill-set as well as opportunities for growth; I felt really happy and like I couldn't have landed this internship without the expertise from the team at Intern NZ.
I have learned so much and have developed both relevant skills for my future career, but also as a person - going abroad and experiencing a different culture and environment than what you're used to truly expands your horizons (as cliché as that sounds). And I can in general also really recommend New Zealand as a destination - it's full of adventures, lots of new nature and cultural things to explore, the working culture is great, people are incredibly kind and welcoming, and as someone arriving here all the way from Denmark, it's just really fun to be on the other side of the planet! I wouldn't have been able to come here without the help from Intern NZ, so I'm really grateful for their amazing service (and also for being able to make other intern friends through their orientation and events) that made the impossible possible and granted me an opportunity to get the exact work and career experience I was looking for.

Pros
  • Relevant academic work experience
  • Great support and services

Great international internship experience

My internship experience in New Zealand was unique. I could develop a new practical and marketable skill and got more practical working experience in my field of study. Furthermore i could improve my (technical) business English through daily team meetings with coworkers and my supervisor as well as my overall ability to understand and communicate in English. Additionally i could do some international networking and also i made new friends from different countries in Europe and New Zealand. I did the internship in Wellington, which is a great city for a lot of fun activities. I had a great time in the nightlife and also could go out to different restaurants and bars during the week. As a fan of Lord of the rings i could see some famous und special film locations based around Wellington. Also i could do amazing tramping tours in the stunning nature nearby Wellington so far. I am satisfied i did this international internship and i am looking forward for the upcoming backpacker travel adventure through New Zealand and other countries close to it.

Pros
  • Developing intercultural experiences
  • Improving my (business) English and developing a new practical skill
  • Growing as a person by leaving the comfort zone and getting to know new friends
Cons
  • It costs a lot of money and i didn't get paid during the internship
  • The weather can be very windy and rainy sometimes
  • The apartment was sometimes a little bit cold because the heating didn't work so good

InternNZ found me an internship from across the world

As part of my education at an IT college in Croatia, I was required to do an internship for a company and use what I'd learned. InternNZ made it possible to do so in New Zealand, allowing me to both finally see the country for the first time and spend the internship with my family. InternNZ provided me with several options and didn't give up on finding me the ideal internship until I was satisfied, and the friendliness and patience of the staff in this endeavor cannot be overstated. If you are looking for an internship in New Zealand, no matter where you're coming from, give InternNZ and its talented staff a try.

Internship

Working as an intern is great opportunity to learn professional skills. You can put your academic knowledge on practical and field based operations. I think every student should think about to take a internship program in between or after their studies to grow better and faster. Through internship you can get professional references from your workplace to make a fancinating resume and it's also a good opportunity to connect with people who are well experienced in your specific field. At the end I want to say all the best for future interns.

Intern NZ provides you best in class service. They help you reach that table where you can't reach alone! I had a wonderful experience in my Internship and thankful to Intern NZ who helped me.

Excellent and supportive staff who work around your needs and finds a suitable match as per your requirements. I highly recommend Intern NZ.

A great platform for students to apply their skills in real working environment.

Its been a great experience with intern NZ in terms of finding me a suitable internship in wellington. I was amazed at their response time in terms of arranging interviews for me. I got my first interview within one week and fortunately, I got selected with a firm which is related to my studies. While I am writing this review I almost completed two months with this company and so happy to see my growth within a short period of time. Another important thing about Intern NZ is that they check on us regarding the working environment and our well being throughout the internship days, that makes Intern NZ a good choice. Inter NZ is active on several social media platforms and makes it easy for people to connect and improve their contacts while we are here in a new place.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Be safe and enjoy life. It will be an amazing experience to test your skills.

What a life-changing experience!

I am absolutely overjoyed that I chose to do my internship in New Zealand and work with Intern NZ. For my internship, I was able to work with a dance studio in Wellington and do everything from dance studio management to teaching my own classes. The dance studio that I worked for truly welcomed me with open arms and made me feel like a part of the dance family from the very beginning. I feel like I have grown immensely as a person and as a dance teacher these last three months and I am very excited to bring my experiences back to the United States. I've had the chance to travel to places like Kapiti Island, Napier, and Taupo during my time here and I have gotten to explore so much in Wellington. The people I have met along this journey will forever have a lasting impact on my life and I will always feel like a have my own kiwi family in New Zealand!

What was the most unfamiliar thing you ate?
My friend and I met some friendly scuba divers who convinced us to try the inside of a sea urchin they had caught. It wasn't my favorite food, but it was such a memorable and funny experience!

My internship in Auckland

Doing an internship in another country is probably the best thing you can do, because you just get so much experience by just working in another country: You experience the work environment and the living standards of another country, you get to know local people and the nature of beautiful New Zealand and you meet so many people who may do a similar project however are so different. I really liked working during the day with people that are all very interested and motivated in my area of Marketing and Event management, being in a living community during the evenings and mornings and exploring the islands with again, different people, during the weekends. The weeks are flying away when everything is just getting a habit and you're feeling as comfortable as I did in Auckland and with the people I met.
I recommend this programme to anyone who is interested in working in another country, who isn't shy to try new things and to cope with different and maybe even difficult situations. But don't worry, the Kiwis and even the Internationals are all very open and happy to help at anytime so that everybody enjoys their journey in New Zealand!

What was the most surprising thing you saw or did?
The nature of New Zealand, that is just incredibly beautiful and impressive. You can't even imagine how nice all these places are, until you haven't seen it yourself.
