What's one attraction interns shouldn't miss while in New Zealand?
Ronald: There are too many things you are not allowed to miss while being in New Zealand. You should do adrenaline pumping activities like Rafting, Bungee jumping and/or Swimming with Dolphins. But my favourites are the Milford Sound cruise and the hot pools at Lake Tekapo on the South Island.
What is one piece of advice you would offer someone considering interning abroad in New Zealand?
Ronald: Make sure you will have an awesome goodbye party back home, because most of our interns do not want to leave New Zealand!
What's the most memorable story/experience you've heard from a past intern?
Ronald: In 2008 we assisted an intern from Holland with a placement at one of the larger museums in New Zealand. At the end of her stay, me and my colleague Marcel were invited for her farewell party.
During this farewell party, the Maori people of the museum performed a traditional dance for us. They found it amazing that we organized her internship on the other side of the world and wanted to thank us for that.
Anything else you would like to share?
Ronald: Besides the internship we focus on the interns social network. With our numerous trips and social activities, our candidates meet people from all over the world. This is a great opportunity for our interns to network and make new friends. A detailed list of our upcoming activities and trips is mentioned on our website.
