Review

I'm a typical senior studying in the States when I first saw SKP advertisement on my school's weekly email. I then sent my resume on their website and received a call from one of the company's representatives in the next couple of days. He was very nice and quite thorough about the different opportunities that "I am qualified for, based on my resume". We interacted through many phone calls and emails, with a clear and mutual understanding that I want an internship relating to Finance, particularly private equity or venture capital. After a few weeks of sending my deposit, I followed up with him and asked about the housing. They sent pictures of last year's accommodation and specifically said that I would be hosted there this year. After I made my full payment upon knowing the accommodation, I was then transferred to a different representative of SKP. This is where all the mess started. My new contact sent me an "official letter" for a "Human Resource Executive" position, in which he said was a vague job description. Finance and Human Resource are 2 entirely different jobs. Additionally, the company that I would be interning at was not even in the list that SKP gave me earlier in the beginning. I accepted the offer from the company because he told me that there is a Merger and Acquisition process going on and that there would be many great "Finance opportunities" for me to work on. That never happened. The accommodation was a totally different place and standard than what was promised. I am utmost disappointed by the experience, which was beautifully altered and misled to believe.

Would you recommend this program?
