An Amazing Experience

10/10

During my stay in Thailand I was able to collect a lot of experiences and dive into a new world. Completely different from what I experienced so far was not only the new lifestyle and Thai culture, no, also the company structure and business climate provided me with many new impressions. 

It was great how AIP supported me with every element of my stay, such as accommodation, visa, important local information and of course the internship placement. On my side, I had the opportunity to do a 6-month internship at Orami an e-commerce company headquartered in the heart of Bangkok. Working in the HR and Marketing departments I learned how to deal with international business affairs and explored local challenges such as the Thai language and writing.

My time overall was great! For me the perfect combination of a start in the business world and a precious personal experience.

AIP made the process of finding an internship so easy. I knew I wanted to go to Thailand and gain some work experience but I didn't know where to even start. After applying, AIP matched me to a company called Energaia that was a perfect match to my interests and degree in nutrition. After interviewing with both AIP and my future employer, I was promptly sent all the necessary paperwork, which made getting the visa very simple.

Upon arriving in Bangkok, I was picked up at the airport and given a pre-charged card for the train and a new SIM card. They drove me to my apartment that they had set up for me and explained all the things I should know about the city. Overall, they make the transition abroad easy and painless. Even after I arrived in Bangkok, the AIP staff occasionally invited the other interns to special events. I went to several networking events with them and they even took us to Ayutthaya to explore the old city in Thailand. I met some great friends thru the program and really couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

How can this program be improved?

Perhaps provide new interns with the contact information of other interns in their area. Some of my best friends during the internship were AIP interns that worked for other companies but I didn’t meet them until a few weeks after arriving when I went to the networking events.

Internship in advertising in Bangkok

10/10

AIP helped me to find an internship perfectly suited to my educational background and to what I told them I wanted to learn.They have been really friendly and professional from the beginning to the end of the internship.

I had just finished my studies in Communication and International Marketing and wanted to gain some more skills and experience before finding a job. So I decided to go to Bangkok because I have always been interested in Asia and already knew Thailand. I just didn't know where to start to find an intenship in Asia, I didn't know anything about working there and I wanted to be sure that my experience would be valuable and that I would learn something. I went through several interviews with very good companies thanks to AIP and ended up doing an internship in a well-known global advertising company. My experience there was paramount , I worked in different departments and teams were very welcoming and friendly. I as well worked on many different projects what enable me to enhance many skills and to understand better the advertising industry.

I as well met many friends in Thailand from different countries that I will definetly see back in my country or plan to visit to their own country. It is actually easy to socialise in Bangkok, or in Thailand in general, because Thai are very welcoming and Bangkok is a cosmopolite city there are as well many foreigners looking for the same things as you, discover, learn, socialise..

Finally, I did a 6 months internship and when there was three months left, I started to apply for jobs. It was in January. Now ( April ), I have been hired in a renown advertising comapny in London, and they clearly told be that they hired me because of my previous experience and my skills so for what I did during my internship in Bangkok.

So I would say, if you have the chance, go. Make sure to tell AIP exactly what you expect from your internship and what you want to learn during the first interview with them. Then, work hard during your internship, try to learn as much as you can and, of course, enjoy your time in Asia, try to travel and meet other persons. If you do that you can be sure the experience will worth it, at least it worked for me.

Maybe the flat :D. The internet speed is really slow and kitchen are not really equipped to cook BUT food in Thailand is so cheap, you might actually prefer to take away or eat outside. So not really important.

Great experience!

9/10

Doing an internship in Thailand was one of the best decisions I have made in a long time! AIP helps you out finding a company that suits your proffesional expectations, accomodation close to your office and supports you in the overall process of visa application and paperwork. Moving to Thailand and starting up a new life could sound like a difficult or even scary, but having the support of an experienced agency like AIP gives you so much security and makes things much easier.
All I can say is that I had a great time over there and that I would do it again. I learned a lot, met new people, got to know a completely new culture and travelled all around South East Asia during my 4 months of internship.
So if you are considering moving to Asia for an internhip with AIP, don't think of it twice. You won't regret!

AIP could organise more events to get all interns together and discover Thai culture and/or organise trips.

An Experience of a Lifetime

9/10

I just finished the last day of my finance internship in Hong Kong and I don’t want to leave. I love the company that I was able to work with and met many great people.

Looking back 6 months ago I’m so happy that I chose AIP for my internship experience because they found the perfect placement for me. I learned a lot of valuable things from the company that I worked with and I’m sure it will benefit me in my future career.

Friends that I’ve met from various networking events, which AIP arranged, are having a going away party for me and I’m going to miss them. This was my very first internship that I’ve done and am so glad I chose to do it abroad. I gained so much from this experience and can’t wait to come back to Hong Kong.

How can this program be improved?

AIP you have to make more of those dinners! thanks to that me and all the other interns we found new friends and the food was so good.
