Totally worth it!

It has always been my dream to work at a Japanese company, but because of COVID-19 I thought that this would be impossible to do.

Thanks to Absolute Internship I was able to do a Remote Internship instead, which turned out to be an amazing experience. I got into a unique and interesting software company where I was able to apply my legal (technology) knowledge. The projects I worked on were very interesting and challenging. My coordinator at the company made sure that there was a great balance between what the company needed from me and what I wanted to get out of the internship.

What was the most surprising thing you saw or did?
My colleagues organized a virtual 飲み会 (nomikai), which is basically a virtual drinking party :)

Absolute Internship Review (Publishing Program)

I had a good remote experience. I enjoyed the remote workshops/events hosted by Absolute Internship and I thought their online platform was easy to navigate. I liked the videos, the live like asynchronous workshops and events and the tips and tricks regarding resumes, internships, career, culture shock. It was also easy to get hold of Absolute when I had any questions or concerns or when I wanted to clarify something. Overall, I thought my internship experience was very instructive and enlightening. Similarly with my internship provider Edwige, I was in constant communication with my internship supervisor and I had a lot of flexibility in terms of when I did my work. I had the pleasure of proofreading and editing a novel that will serve as an intro to a fantasy series. I also got to transcribe story ideas, brainstorm with my supervisor and help organize chapters of other works.

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
Given that this internship was remote for me, the most nerve-racking moment was when I was at an event and the host asked a question and asked me to share my answer with the group. The group was very small so it felt very intimate and intimidating in the moment but that experience allowed me to feel more connected to other students also doing an internship who were in a similar situation to me. I dismissed my anxiety and answered and the host was so kind and helpful in response. That specific event led me to really reflect about what I wanted career and life wise in the next 5 years and what I would have to do to get there.

Summer Internship 2021 Happiest of my life

From the beginning the attention they gave me, the support, the value of the interviews left me impressed and I appreciate the opportunity to connect with a great company where all the activities, meetings and final results were very important and I have a lot of fun. In the end, I am left with many learnings from digital tools, company contacts, process planning and many co-workers, which is very valuable for my personal and professional life. I firmly believe that this is one of the best experience of my life

What was the most surprising thing you saw or did?
I was surprised by all the planning formats they have to be able to measure and execute the results and objectives.

I had an amazing experience with Absolute Internships.

I was a little disappointed when the time came to start my internship because I had switched to the remote program because of the COVID-19 pandemic and I had lowered expectations of what I would gain from this experience. However, this internship was by far the most enriching time of my life. My host company and Absolute made it feel like I was learning and working right beside them from halfway across the world. I got the chance to take on so many new responsibilities and I gained immense amounts of confidence in myself, my work and my professionalism skills. Absolute also did a great job making me feel supported throughout my internship by staying in touch with me to make sure my placement was going well. Thanks to this internship I feel much more confident and prepared for enter into the workforce of the professional world.

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
My supervisor gave me the task of interviewing a client for a Q&A and pitching a story to a magazine. I didn't have any real experience with this kind of work but my supervisor gave me the proper guidance before she stepped away and trusted me with this important work. Which in turn made me trust in my own abilities in a way that I had never been able to before.

Great Scholarship Experience

I managed to receive the full scholarship for the remote program which is what I would recommend doing if you are like me- a student with not a lot of money looking for experience. The Absolute Internship team are always very helpful and you can reach out to them at any time to email or arrange a call. It is a great way you can gain lots of knowledge inside of a business for example marketing and what goes on behind the scenes. The remote program is good for in covid times which is the program I am specifically talking about here :)

What the inside workings of a business looks like.

An incredible rewarding experience!

Interning with Absolute Internship has been an incredible experience! Absolute has allowed me to work remotely for a company based in London with ease and support. Being an intern at an online law firm was something I never thought I would be able to do as an undergraduate student. Thanks to the resources provided by Absolute Internship and the amazing team members and mentors that gave me assistance throughout the entire process, I was given an offer that catered to what I was looking for. My journey through Absolute Internship has been nothing but positive and exciting. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to explore the legal field and work towards my professional future!

Marketing program

My experience was successful, as it was my first time working abroad and in the English language was an step forward for me and try to work in another country is very important for me as I could gain a lot of knowledge. Gaining experience on my CV abroad is vital for my future if I want to work in another country specially in UK which it is my goal. The company was kind with me every time and every moment I was comprehensive by them , and I had a good welcoming. I would recommend to everyone to do this step in theirs lives and have this experience as it is good to do a step out of your comfort zone.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
I would change the department, not because I didn't like the marketing department, only because I want to know and learn more about other departments inside the companies.

Remote program amounted to almost nothing except wasted $$$

This program was said to be a remote program that would partner me with a company located in Singapore. After being partnered with them they told me I would be working with their North American branch... This was not terrible seeing as the time zone would be the same as mine. However, after a week into the internship it was clear that HR had dumped me on the marketing team without the marketing team having a plan of what to do with me. My marketing supervisor was good to work with and did what he could with me, but it was a tough situation for him.

What would you improve about this program?
Vet the participating companies better beforehand.
