Can highly recommend Intern NZ! For one of my semesters as a Master's student at university, I could choose to either do electives or an academic internship - and as someone who's soon a graduate, I wanted to do an internship to get more experience and a taste for the different pathways of future career options. I've worked in a research library previously, but wanted to try out the museum world - so I set my goal to intern at a museum, preferably abroad to get international experience at the same time. I tried to do it on my own at first, but was dealing with both finishing my exams for the semester + never hearing back from the museums I had tried to contact. I then googled around and found Intern NZ & OZ, and decided to go for it - I could focus on my exams and hand over all the administrative things to someone else; someone who had the right contacts, connections, and made the whole process feel a lot safer and like it was actually do-able (while also being affordable!). Within no time, they had found my dream internship at a museum in New Zealand that fit my skill-set as well as opportunities for growth; I felt really happy and like I couldn't have landed this internship without the expertise from the team at Intern NZ.
I have learned so much and have developed both relevant skills for my future career, but also as a person - going abroad and experiencing a different culture and environment than what you're used to truly expands your horizons (as cliché as that sounds). And I can in general also really recommend New Zealand as a destination - it's full of adventures, lots of new nature and cultural things to explore, the working culture is great, people are incredibly kind and welcoming, and as someone arriving here all the way from Denmark, it's just really fun to be on the other side of the planet! I wouldn't have been able to come here without the help from Intern NZ, so I'm really grateful for their amazing service (and also for being able to make other intern friends through their orientation and events) that made the impossible possible and granted me an opportunity to get the exact work and career experience I was looking for.
