What it’s like interning in Vietnam

Working abroad is one of those things that you have to do at least once in your life. I’m so glad I did it, and I learned more about myself, my country, and how other cultures operate than I ever thought possible. As an intern living in Vietnam for a summer, I had many opportunities to learn about different aspects of Vietnam culture, including some things that often go overlooked by short-term visitors.

First and foremost, I worked on my project. hanging out with friends and networking with various professionals to make business connections. Vietnam is one of those countries where it’s easy to get lost in your work, so I made sure that each day there was a little something fun scheduled as well as some time allotted for relaxation.

Cultural Experiences You Have To Try When You're There

It’s been more than a year since I moved to Taiwan, and I still can’t believe that I ended up here in Asia! It’s amazing how life works out sometimes, isn’t it? My journey with the study abroad program at my university started out with me simply wanting to study Chinese. Then I found out about the internship opportunity, and it was so exciting to discover that I could do an internship abroad while getting credit towards my degree! My experience was simply amazing, and if you have the chance to intern abroad, don’t pass it up!

I also Immerse yourself in Taiwanese night markets (they're not just for tourists!) In Taiwan, everyone loves to eat out at night. Night markets are scattered all over Taichung, offering cheap food and drinks by day but taking on a more boisterous atmosphere when evening falls. My favorite was Raohe Street Night Market (pictured above), a collection of street-side shops selling hotpot and stinky tofu by day that transform into bars by night! I also recommend Hualien Night Market, where you can watch live performances of traditional music or even try your hand at playing it yourself!

Unforgettable Internship in South Korea

I’m Anna,and I interned in South Korea during the summer of 2022. My company was one of the first to start internships abroad in Asia, so I was lucky enough to be one of the pioneers in what was a very exciting new trend at the time. Although I was an international student and didn’t speak Korean, my coworkers made me feel very welcome and taught me many things about Korean culture and their country. The internship itself taught me valuable business skills and helped give me an edge over other job candidates when applying for jobs after graduation!

I was more open to meeting new people

The most important thing I learned from my internship was being more open to meeting new people. This can be applied to many areas of your life. When I first went to China, I had no idea how things worked and who I could talk to about what we were doing. I As soon as I entered my boss’s (he is from UK) house in China, everyone welcomed me with open arms! They introduced themselves to me, showed me around town, and made sure I knew where everything was located so that I could get settled. They were all very nice and easy going, which made it much easier for me to communicate with them. We would have group chats and share pictures on Facebook. It was such a great experience, one that I will never forget. It opened up my eyes to making friends outside of school or work. Being able to meet new people is something you should always try to do because you never know when you might make lifelong friends! You may even find someone who has similar interests as you. Who knows? You may end up having another friend like me!

Go Abroad China

Why did you choose this program?

I had to go abroad as per university course requirements. I first started my research and involved my career advisor who is also on campus, and helped a lot with finalizing the formalities of going abroad from my school.

What did your program provider assist you with, and what did you have to organize on your own?

Go Abroad China did manage to give me all the important things: getting my study visa didn't present any problems, I got picked up at the airport in Shanghai since it was my first time there anyway. I think the weekend activities can be even more organized.

What is one piece of advice you'd give to someone going on your program?

Not to be scared and enjoy China because once you are there and studying everyday, time tends to go by very quickly. Within no time you will realize you are already preparing to go back to your original school after the summer holidays.

What does an average day/week look like as a participant of this program?

I had around 20 hours of class time per week, which was definitely a lot since I went to summer school and expected it to be a little less strict. But actually, it was fine in the end and I had a blast learning Chinese with 20 something other classmates from a lot of different countries.

Going into your experience abroad, what was your biggest fear, and how did you overcome it and/or how did your views on the issue change?

Going to China for the first time was of course something I really thought about and got nervous about, but strangely enough I wasn't shocked as I had predicted. I was worried about life since I didn't speak Chinese, but actually Shanghai is so modern, the Chinese there speak English.

What is your favorite memory from your time abroad?

Being in Shanghai and learning about the city, its hang outs, history, new locations and other little nooks in the city with new friends was a great experience for me.

What is your favorite travel memory?

One of the best places I have visited here in China is Yunnan Province. Yunnan is a special place occupied by different minority groups, these people usually speak a different language to the Mandarin Chinese that we are used to, their food is different but they have preserved their cultural heritage very well, so much that their way of life attracts lots of Chinese and foreign tourists. I think it is amazing that we can all be in China but still have groups of people who haven't gone mainstream; they still have their unique traditions that people travel many miles to go see.

Which destination is most underrated? Conversely, which is most overrated?

When I first joined Go Abroad China, our main cities of operations were Beijing and Shanghai. Having branched out to southern China, Chengdu city in Sichuan Province is actually becoming quite popular, this is a great thing because people can still have great experiences even if they are not in Beijing or Shanghai. Chengdu seems to be getting some spotlight now especially from foreigners who are looking for language learning and work opportunities. Many firms are also relocating there because the average cost of living and production is still quite low, meaning better profits compared to if they were located in Shanghai.

How have you changed/grown since working for your current company?

Yes, I think the top thing I still continue to learn even today is maintaining good working relationships with our partner companies. In our go abroad and education sector, we have collaborations with many different companies inside China, and schools too. I feel like my people skills are always being put to the test because part of my job duties involves communicating directly with them. And during the busiest months when we have many clients, our communication is even more frequent. So keeping a good connection and relationship with such companies is the most important thing that I have learned and have to keep doing.

What unique qualities does your company possess?

I have seen that a large portion of our clients are usually happy with how we arrange placements for them, it makes me feel proud of our company's service delivery department, their job is very important as our company is judged based on that. With the company doing well, we are able to help even the clients/applicants who have a limited budget to customize our services so that at least we can reach a satisfactory agreement. For a few lucky ones, they might even get a partial scholarship if they prove that they are hard-workers and fit the requirements.

What is the best story you've heard from a return student?

We had a young student from Australia who joined the language program in Beijing, when her program came to an end, like many others she was saying how much she would miss Beijing and that she would come back. At the time, of course, I thought it was a polite conversation, but a year later I was surprised when she called us back as said this time she wants to do an internship! I thought it was special because due to the expenses of traveling to China, it takes a lot of time to save up and have a new budget to travel again. Our management over here was so impressed that she got herself a sweet discount, she is now considered a friend here at our GAC offices!
