Hello everyone, it’s been 2 months now that I started my internship in Bangkok in a travel agency. Since my Master graduation back in France, I always wanted to find a new unique experience here in Thailand, country which I discovered previously doing an academic exchange and a first internship. It was getting hard for me back in France to find what I wanted even though I had contacts. And I found My Internship Asia on LinkedIn so I was like, why not giving it a try.

And finally I am here, enjoying my life and my work experience. All of this would have not been possible without using MIA and its expertise in matching people with the right organisation. I would like to recommend MIA to anyone looking for a internship in Thailand. So many hours spent to deal with all administrative papers, MIA team really took the time to help me out. Please do not hesitate and go ahead.

Thanks to MIA, I experienced one of the best times of my life, experienced a professional growth, meeting amazing people and experiencing first-hand a whole different culture.

The support and help provided was amazing, going far away than I expected, helping me to manage flawlessy a difficult visa tramitation, picking me in the airport, providing me housing in a ideal location, and answering all my doubts.
Regarding the place chosen as my company, there wasn't any problem, all the members were pretty helpful, I learned a lot of things, helping me to growth my professional skills, learning about other fields and how to manage business internationally and deal with different cultures.

I want to thank the amazing staff at MIA for providing this opportunity.

I'm an Undergraduate at the University of Nevada Reno. I had an opportunity to do a study abroad + Internship program for 16 weeks. It was one of the best experiences of my life!! Thailand is such an amazing country with tons of things to do. During my study abroad, the university took me to see the true culture of Thailand. After my study abroad with the university, My Internship Asia placed me into a start-up company for 8 weeks. My Internship Asia is a great organization that helped me every step of the way. Finding an internship in a foreign country can be very difficult on your own. The advisors were so helpful and kind that really made the process easy. I can't wait to come back to Thailand and travel to more places that I didn't have time for. See you soon Thailand:)

I came to Thailand to study abroad, however, I always wanted to do an internship overseas so contacting MIA and doing an internship was a good opportunity. MIA was very supportive however, the actual internship supervisor was not supportive and helpful. It would be better if she gave me more work and information like the internship company MIA did. The study abroad in Thailand was amazing.

Living in a different county alone changed my perspectives and opened my mind, and this experience is the highlight event in my life. I enjoyed every moment in Thailand. I was living in the center of Thailand, Bangkok. Bangkok has so much to offer.... there are amazing temples that represent the rich Buddhism culture, and at the same time there are beautiful new buildings and 5 starts hotels. It’s a mix of ancient and modern which I think is cool.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
I would use my savings more carefully. Since Thailand is very cheap, I didn’t really plan about how to use my savings, but I ended up using a lot.
Response from My Internship Asia

Thank you for the feedback on your internship experience. This can be a risk in the development of a growing start-up. Since your feedback form was submitted, we have discussed with the company in order to improve our services. Hoping to see you soon back in Thailand!

I’m very grateful for my internship experience in MIA. They supported my learning objectives and helped me develop my skills in marketing. They treated their interns professionally and raised our confidence to work and perform well.

I initially applied for the digital marketing position where I was responsible for the social media content as Facebook and Instagram. I was also responsible for writing educational blogs targeted for international students. Finally, I created and edited video content for promoting the companies services.

Sharing your learning objectives with the people at MIA can offer better chances of getting a more suitable internship. They cover a variety of industries and they’re very responsive to messages.

To conclude, Bangkok is a wonderful place to work in, network, make good connections and MIA can assist you in your journey to an international internship experience.

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
Presenting my work (website copywriting and video content) to the CEO.
Response from My Internship Asia

You were a great intern and the company really liked working with you :) If you ever want to participate in any networking events in the future, please let MIA and I can set it up for you. We hope to see you soon :)

Alumni Interviews

These are in-depth Q&A sessions with verified alumni.

Jasmine Elizabeth Sawkins

Jasmine is studying at Webster University Thailand. Majoring in Marketing and minoring in Media and Psychology. She will be graduating in May 2019 and, before she graduates, she decided to sign up with MIA and gain some work experience before she finishes school.

Why did you choose this program?

I chose MIA because my university shared an internship opportunity and I also got recommended by my advisor. I thought the internship will be interesting experience to do and it can help to develop on what I'm currently studying. Another reason I chose this program because I was able to travel around in Thailand and, at the same time, gaining work experience.

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

My university advisor helped me to improve my resume and giving advice what I should do before taking the internship and during the internship. Such as I should do research about the internship and what should I expect to get out of this internship. Things I have to organise on my own would be the transportation, but transportation in Bangkok is so easy. It is not even a problem to get around.

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

One advice is don't be afraid to try new things. For example, in Thailand there might be a lot of food that is unfamiliar to people who is living in the UK or other places. Getting out of your comfort zone once in a while will do you good and you will not regret it.

I was a bit scared to try new things, especially when it comes to food. However, I took that mindset off by just doing it, I'm already here might as well try it. After that, I never regretted it.

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

Normal work hour which is 5 days of 8 hours of work. Every day is filled with different works and never got bored of it. I'm mainly doing the digital marketing in here. Such as I will take videos and pictures around Thailand and sharing it online. Create posters and events for the program. Every day I get to do something that I enjoy doing and every day I'm learning something new.

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

My biggest fear was what if I didn't fit in here. I was excited going abroad, but at the same time I was scared that I might not fit in the culture here. However, when I arrive, my fear disappear. Everyone is so friendly here, everyone is willing to help out, teaching me all the cultures and taking me around in Thailand. Now looking back at my fear, I was scared of changing and stepping out of my comfort zone. That's is why everyone should get out of the comfort zone once in a while.

Write and answer your own question.

After you traveled around to different places, you would feel like a different person. Also capturing all the memories is the best. I was able to show my friends and family back home how much I'm doing here and how much I have grown. By going abroad can actually make you more independent and more mature, which is something can't gain easily by staying at the same place. You have to take care of yourself in a place the language is different and culture is different. Learning a bit of Thai also helped me a lot by getting around.

What is your favorite travel memory?

My favorite travel memory is when I got a chance to visit my friend in Valencia, Spain (2018). It is one of the most wonderful cities for me. The people are so nice and the weather is so good. Personally, I am a beach person, so do not be surprised why this trip became my favorite.

I have experienced lots of new cultures because this is my first time in Europe. Having a local take you to the place that you might not find in the guide books made my trip more excited than I expected.

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

I realized that I become more responsible since I have been working for My Internship Asia and that is quite a big change for me. My duty is to make sure any problems will be solved in the best and quickest possible way. Moreover, this job gives me opportunities to get to know people from all over the world.

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

I heard of a story, before I arrived at My Internship Asia, of two American students that did an internship in a Visual Media Company that does documentaries about different subjects. They wanted to develop filming, video editing, and creative skills. From the start of their internship, they went to different places to film events and places. I heard they went on Thai Islands to film for documentaries, they went to very nice hotels and restaurants to film what it was like inside and managed to have quite a few advantages as interns working for this company.

They were really happy with their experience and their manager was also really pleased with their work. He even proposed them to stay and work full time with him but they had to go back to the US. I think they are still in contact and probably going to do projects together in the future.

If you could go on any program that your company offers, which one would you choose and why?

I would like to choose our MIA premium because I think it is the best value package. Not only all the benefits I will get from My internship Asia staff, but also I will have a chance to make new friends with other interns by living at shared accommodation. I believe the best way to learn another different culture is to learn from native ones. It will definitely be a good experience during an internship overseas.

What makes your company unique? When were you especially proud of your team?

What makes My Internship Asia different from any internship company is we work for the interns, not for the company. We represent you. We will make sure that your internship in Thailand under our care will be the best experience you would get. We understand how difficult it would be when you have to travel alone to new places and gain international experience, that is why we are here for you if you need any help.

What do you believe to be the biggest factor in being a successful company?

I believe the combination of good management and teamwork is the secret to success for a company. I think big companies such as Google or Facebook have organizational skills that allow the company to manage their work properly. When you have lots of work to do and big objectives to realize, you need to allocate the right skills and the right teams on the right tasks. I also think that it is really important for the company to believe in what they sell and truly believe they are working to find solutions to people's needs. This applies to any company: big or small.
