The best experience I made in my life as a student: choosing for Asia Internship Program! I have literally been searching FOR WEEKS and could't find anything, because it is really hard for me as an engineer-in-progress to find a place anywhere. I knew I really wanted to do an internship in Indonesia, but didn’t know where to start at all.

And then I found the website of AIP. They offer three different packages in Indonesia: placement, standard and signature. I chose the standard package because that included accommodation and networking events as well. AIP helped me really well and offered me assistance in everything I wanted. They replied so fast and I really liked the person I was in contact with.

The only ‘negative’ thing was the Skype meeting. I needed to do a Skype meeting for my application with AIP, in which I would talk to a staff member about my wishes and needs. But unfortunately, this meeting was delayed by ten minutes and also the network connection didn’t work too well. But that’s really the only ‘negative’ I can think of. The rest of the process was basically perfect for me.

And the internship itself: it was so so so great! I could say that it was one of the best experiences in my life. The company was very informal, it felt like home, and I made so many friends within the company, but also on networking events and in my student flat!

Thank you, AIP, for making this possible!

I spent two months doing a marketing internship in Seoul (South-Korea) and it was one of the best times of my life. I never went to Asia before, but I wanted to experience the culture there, since I heard it to be so different and peaceful compared to the Italian culture. It was also my first time doing a full-time job for 40 hours a week and that was quite tiring I must say. My main goals were getting to know the Asian culture, working in the ‘real business world’ and improving my English. I think I succeeded on that.

I made a great choice choosing for Asia Internship Program as they assisted me very well by obtaining an internship placement which completely suited my wishes and furnished accommodation. During the first week of my internship, I was already working on challenging marketing projects such as writing new marketing plans, which was exactly what I wanted. AIP found the perfect spot for me and I am really grateful for that. They were always there for me.

I just got back from my 3 months internship in South-Korea and it has been a challenging time for me. I never went abroad before, but an internship abroad was mandatory for my studies at my university. As I had no travelling experience at all, I decided to choose for an internship placement company to help me, because I did not know where and how to start.

I have chosen to do a signature package program with AIP, because I wanted to get the most out of my experience abroad. AIP gave me an amazing room to sleep in and to feel home, helped me obtaining my visa, organized a monthly trip to explore the country and most importantly they found me a great company to do my internship at. Moving to Korea sounded so difficult and scary to me at first, but having the support of an experienced agency like AIP gave me so much security and made things much easier.

I really had a great time and I would definitely do it again if I had the chance. I learned a lot, met a lot of different people and experienced the culture at its finest. I saw a lot of the country during my stay and also visited other countries at the weekends or holidays.

How can this program be improved?
Nothing, I found it very well organized

I had thought about life in Japan for a couple of years before I finally decided to go there while on summer break form Uni. I remember I was a little bit too excited when I submitted my application.

I chose AIP mostly because other internship providers in Japan required you to be there for a specific start and end date which didn’t fit in with the allotted time given from my University.

My biggest regret was not taking the initiative to learn some of the Japanese language because I feel like I would have gotten a bit more of an immersive experience if I did. I was there for a grand total of six weeks before I even learned hello or thank you which I am pretty embarrassed about but realistically no one expected me to speak it.

When I stepped off the plane in Tokyo airport I was super nervous, I stayed in a hostel called Hop Step Inn for a few days while I looked for accommodation - a lovely hostel in a great location btw! I think this was one of my better ideas because I met some really nice backpackers from Germany!

I gotta admit that on my first day I was pretty nervous but I wasn't there a week before I felt completely relaxed. During my time there I created content for their blog and social media outlets and as one of the only native English speakers in the company I did a lot of proofreading and editing of the other staff’s work. I loved my work there and the staff are great people, I wasn’t expecting the responsibility of making my own promotional blog series so I was delighted with that. The other interns in the company who started a few weeks before me were some really lovely and helpful people!

Japan itself is an amazing place, the food was particularity amazing - my new obsession is jiggly cheese cake. The overall experience was well worth the trip!

How can this program be improved?
I would like to see more information on the different packages prior to coming as I may have wanted to opt for a different package that included accommodation.

My overall experience with AIP was wonderful. They were very responsive and helpful when it comes to enquiries, also their monthly networking event was a bonus to all interns. I have attended a few of their #BIG vents. It was informative and at the same time enjoyable when it comes to socializing with different business individuals during the networking session.

As for my working experience. It has definitely improve my interpersonal and communication skills during the past four months. By being able to perform multiple task efficiently and communicate more effectively within and outside of the company. Furthermore, I'm able to clearly identify my strength and weaknesses. Some of discovery are quite surprising. Definitely it is not a full stop when it comes to learning and there are room for improvements within those specified areas.

Not to mention the travels and the countless adventures in Thailand. Few of the highlights were hiking some of Thailand's beautiful national park and bike rides to some local hotspots. Best of all was the selfless and kind hearted people I have encountered throughout the months. After graduation, I look forward in developing my career in Thailand. A country which has so much to offer. Thanks AIP for providing us a gateway in enhancing our career!
