Excellent Once-in-a-Lifetime Experience

My internship experience in Vietnam was fantastic. The Authentica team was extremely helpful and helped us to navigate through our journey in Hanoi. It was indeed a life-changing and eye-opening summer. I also had the honour of being able to establish very meaningful networks that I’m confident will be long lasting. The immersive experience of being able to work alongside with local industry professionals and experts was truly enlightening. I personally recommend this program to students looking for an unique cross-cultural opportunity to further both their professional and interpersonal skills in a global setting.

Great experience!

I had an awesome experience during my internship in Pune, India and learned a great deal. This opportunity also allowed me to position myself for the next opportunity I took on, and remains as one of my favourite memories in the past 5 years!

Incredible Experience

This was an experience that I cannot compare to anything else I have ever done.

Vietnam is a beautiful country and there are endless opportunities to immerse yourself in the culture and sight-see, but what made my trip even more special was the ability to work here and go to local places with my coworkers.

My project was very interesting and taught me how to manage stakeholders in another country - something I had not been exposed to previously.

The work I did was something that I always talk about in job interviews and I have found that it helps differentiate me from other candidates!

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
I think I would spend more time exploring Hanoi and fully take in my environment.

Internship in Hanoi, Vietnam

I completed an 8-week internship arranged by Authentica in Hanoi, Vietnam. The company organized transportation for myself and my colleagues too and from the airport, accommodation, work placements, and social dinners.

I had a phenomenal experience with Authentica! Ravi was extremely supportive throughout the entire work experience, always providing my team with value-added advice whenever we hit a roadblock.

Also, I landed a full-time job due to the experience I gained from this internship!
