An Amazingly Insightful Adventure

Visiting Seoul in June with Absolute Internship was my first experience on a university programme abroad. I was apprehensive at first as it was my first time going so far away by myself, but I must say it was well worth it. I made so many friends from all around the world, got to experience traditional work culture within a Korean company, and go on amazing trips outside of Seoul as well. As a Korean/French language student, it was good to see what prospects could await me once I have finished my degree. The workshops also helped me gain some valuable experience in improving my working portfolio on sites such as LinkedIn, so I feel ready to take on an international career should I choose to in the future. 10/10 would recommend!

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
I would say the first nerve-wracking moment would be actually going to work for the first time. I am very much a planning person, but not necessarily knowing what to expect threw me off a little. Those fears were completely overturned by an amazing host company; I was paired amazingly well and we were all able to bounce off each other and become very good friends!
Pros
  • Meeting amazing people from different walks of life
  • Experiencing both the traditional and modern side of South Korea
  • Beating the Mario Kart master once on our lunch break!
Cons
  • It was very far from home; those who get homesick easily need to brace themselves
  • Its not for shy people - you need to put yourself out there and help people make friends with you by being equally friendly
