A great, enriching experience in beautiful Singapore!

During my internship with CareerUp in Singapore, I had the chance to meet so many fellow interns, make valuable connections at my host company, and to travel around Asia and immerse myself in a new culture. I was able to learn valuable skills in a booming and growing country, and this is something I'm proud of talking about when I'm seeking future opportunities. It's such a unique experience that is unmatched by any other internship experience. I was able to be in a company that had a strong start-up culture, where I was able to connect with the managers and partners and seek unique advice. The program also provided me with a strong internship program for me to develop my hard technical skills. If you have the means and resources, I highly recommend checking out this program.

What would you improve about this program?
The on-site staff/manager could've been more proactive in checking in on our experience. I also found that I did not get to know my company well until I arrived.

Marketing Intern Singapore

Interning in Singapore was an intriguing opportunity that allowed me to not only meet and work alongside wonderful people, but also allowed me a different perspective of Singapore. The initial process of becoming a CareerUp intern was very efficient and relatively simplistic. I would recommend you reread everything on the process though as a general rule. A key employee who was extremely helpful and informative was Lara Yehia.

I enjoyed the fact that once you were in Singapore it was really on you to figure out your way, but you always had the back up of a CareerUp employee. That being said, my supervisor within my internship didn't have much for me to do, so though I enjoyed the traveling and the social aspect of my experience, I questioned whether I was really needed or gaining skills for future endeavors.

What would you improve about this program?
I think there could be an improvement on the communication between employers and CareerUp. I often heard that interns rarely had anything to do or had miscommunications in the system in regards to where they were suppose to be or financial matters. Also, I wish they had a clearer discription of what you are paying for as I was sometimes surprised by different fees. However, for a company that helps you intern abroad I think CareerUp is efficient and successful.

A Must Do For All!

Interning abroad is a life changing experience! CareerUp ensures that you are 100% safe and is really flexible in ensuring your own happiness and satisfaction. I’m very glad I had the opportunity to expand my perspectives and be able to not only develop my professional skills, but also heighten my cultural awareness. CareerUp guides you every step of the way and I’ve been able to make lifelong connections with fellow interns as well as those in the company I worked for! The housing provided and the area within Singapore is also amazing—The accommodation staff are SUPER friendly and you’re so close to everything from public transportation, getting good food, and exploring the main city life within Singapore. Once again, I highly recommend CareerUp to anyone looking to go overseas and develop their professional side!

CareerUp Review

Being completely emersed in another country culture and business is a hard thing to accomplish. However, with CareerUp, it was as easy as putting on a pair of shoes. With a tremendous amount of effort they help ensure that you are prepared to live and thrive in another country. The amazing staff they have with you and helping you with everything makes it so much more comfortable being in another country. I would highly recommend CareerUp for anyone seeking an overseas experience and internship.

What would you improve about this program?
Pricing would be the biggest factor for me.

Do not trust SKP

I'm a typical senior studying in the States when I first saw SKP advertisement on my school's weekly email. I then sent my resume on their website and received a call from one of the company's representatives in the next couple of days. He was very nice and quite thorough about the different opportunities that "I am qualified for, based on my resume". We interacted through many phone calls and emails, with a clear and mutual understanding that I want an internship relating to Finance, particularly private equity or venture capital. After a few weeks of sending my deposit, I followed up with him and asked about the housing. They sent pictures of last year's accommodation and specifically said that I would be hosted there this year. After I made my full payment upon knowing the accommodation, I was then transferred to a different representative of SKP. This is where all the mess started. My new contact sent me an "official letter" for a "Human Resource Executive" position, in which he said was a vague job description. Finance and Human Resource are 2 entirely different jobs. Additionally, the company that I would be interning at was not even in the list that SKP gave me earlier in the beginning. I accepted the offer from the company because he told me that there is a Merger and Acquisition process going on and that there would be many great "Finance opportunities" for me to work on. That never happened. The accommodation was a totally different place and standard than what was promised. I am utmost disappointed by the experience, which was beautifully altered and misled to believe.

My internship in Singapore

I worked with SK Pacific this fall to find an internship abroad in Singapore and it was amazing. SK Pacific exceeded my expectations and connected my with an amazing company, arranged a beautiful condo for me, and made the whole process super easy. I highly recommend this program and think all college students should do an internship abroad.

Singapore is the most amazing city I have visited. It is extremely modern and the architecture is hard to believe. The food is also incredible. They have hawker center, which are basically food courts, that have wonderful food from all over the world. A lot of people say it is "Asia for Beginners." I have to agree, it has all the amazing culture and food of Asia, but it is as modern and clean as any city in the US or Europe.

What would you improve about this program?
No complaints. I am likely going to participate again next year.
