My Seoul Internship Experience

The Beyond Academy internship abroad program in Seoul was a transformative experience that exceeded my expectations in every way. One of my favorite parts of this program was the amazing cultural experience. The program organizers went above and beyond to make me feel welcomed and supported in navigating both the workplace and the vibrant city of Seoul. My internship placement was chosen to align with my career goals and academic background and also helped me develop valuable skills for my future career. From exploring historical sites to enjoying traditional Korean performances, every outing was an amazing experience for me.

Transformative Internship Experience in Seoul

I had the incredible opportunity to intern in Seoul, and the experience surpassed all my expectations. The company's commitment to professional development and mentorship made a lasting impact on my career trajectory. From day one, I was immersed in challenging projects that allowed me to apply and expand my skills. The supportive and collaborative work environment fostered creativity, and the team's dedication to innovation was inspiring.

What sets this internship apart is the cultural immersion. Seoul is an amazing city, and the company organized cultural exchanges that enriched my understanding of both professional and local contexts. The cross-cultural experience added a unique dimension to my internship, and I left with not only valuable work experience but also a deeper appreciation for global perspectives.

I am immensely grateful for the opportunities this internship provided and the connections I forged during my time in Seoul. It was truly a transformative experience that I would highly recommend to anyone seeking not just a job but a meaningful and enriching journey in their career development.

Above and Beyond

When I first came across Beyond Academy, I could not believe my eyes, it just seemed too good to be true. But from first contact onwards, it truly was as good as they promised. Every point of contact was warm and welcoming, they truly take the time and care to tailor this internship to be what you want. I had such a hard time deciding on which company I wanted to intern with, because the two they found me were so amazing, it hurt me to see the other one go. But once the decision was made, this very informative countdown started, I would receive emails with very important information and reminders to make my trip to Seoul much easier. Once I arrived at my destination, the team was a huge source of comfort, because no matter what, I knew that there was someone I could turn to in the case of an emergency. Not only that, but they took the time to plan all these activities (taking into consideration what me and other interns would enjoy), so I truly feel like I made good use of my time, and I got to experience Seoul in a way not many get to do. So thank you Alize, Sooyeon and Jayoon🩷

Pros
  • Life experience
  • Work experience
  • Easy process
Cons
  • Pricey
  • Activities are on Thursdays and Sundays
  • Group activities (for those who prefer to be alone)

Successful Internship Experience

I was really happy with my experience at Beyond. When my initial internship didn't turn out the way I expected, I was able to work with the team at Beyond and my intern company to find a solution that satisfied everyone. I was happy that the Beyond staff worked so hard to make sure I was satisfied with my internship experience. In the end, I found not only a better company to continue my internship but also a permanent working position within that company after my internship ended. I was able to meet really cool people and had some great experiences through this program as well. I would recommend this program to anyone interested in trying an internship experience here in Seoul, as long as you come with the right mindset. Remember the Korean working environment is probably much different than what you are used to. So if you are a flexible type of person and think you can handle it, give it a try.

Pros
  • Fun activites planned frequently
  • Great support from staff memebers
Cons
  • Too many events during the week sometimes felt a bit burdensome

Seoul Internship

I have had one of the most amazing and memorable experiences here in Seoul with Beyond Academy. Not only do you get a fulfilling internship experience, but the events they’re organise and the community coordinators are the best bits!! They make you feel at home and the interns and coordinators become a little family!! I really recommend this experience, as it is an amazing way to grow as a person while also building an amazing opportunity to write on your CV. I would 100% consider doing another internship with Beyond!

Pros
  • Amazing cultural immersion
  • Learn a lot in the Internship
  • When my first internship didn’t really work out, Beyond Academy worked very hard to get me a new one within a couple of days!!
Cons
  • Maybe a slight language barrier, but that’s my fault for not knowing Korean!!

Beyond Immersion

Work during the day but immerse yourself in the culture at night. Meet new people and travel across Seoul with ease. Even walking alone I felt safe no matter the distance. I had the full support of the staff 24/7 and they gave me advice, helped me adjust, and even helped me practice my Korean. It was a great time spent in Seoul that made me not want to leave. I was given the tools necessary to get around and felt prepared to explore on my own. I got to meet people from around the world, make new Korean friends, try so many delicious foods, and practice my Korean.

Pros
  • Cultural Immersion, Trips around Seoul
  • Accommodation (you have to pay for but everything was mostly in walking distance and it was close to 2 stations)
  • Intern Placement
Cons
  • Pricey (the longer the stay the more expensive it is)
  • Language barrier (i'm still learning Korean so the language barrier wasn't as bad)

Seoul Internship

During my internship in Seoul, I learned so much and had such a wonderful time. I was able to meet a lot of interesting people in my industry who I never would have had the chance to meet otherwise, so the networking chances were fantastic. The friendships I developed with the other interns were the icing on the cake, and it was an amazing experience getting to know so many people from different countries. The coordinators are really kind and helpful, and also fun! The weekly events organised for us were fantastic, and they made the whole experience that much more enjoyable and educational. The office environment was not only friendly, but also entertaining and very generous. This was my first trip to South Korea, so I wanted to make sure I could enter and stay in the country without any problems as I don't even speak the language. Beyond Academy ensured that I could do all of that prepared to answer any question I had. My internship was the best possible experience!

Pros
  • Networking
  • Friendships
  • Job opportunities
Cons
  • Language barrier (sometimes)
  • Heat (weather)
