After graduating from business school I had decided I wanted to save some money and do some traveling before getting into the business world. It was an intimidating decision, so when I came across the opportunity to travel while gaining value career experience I couldn't say no. I worked for a publishing start up in Bali for one month and at the end of the internship they offered to extend my contract and make me a paid remote employee of the company! I've now been working for them while traveling South East Asia for the past 5 months.
Start Me Up gives you a great insight into the remote working scene and the atmosphere at the co-working space is truly one of a kind. You are encouraged and supported to work on developing your own skills and interests in your free time and there are multiple skill building and networking events you can attend every week.
The team are very friendly and supportive throughout the entire process. If you are at all nervous about traveling in Asia this program is a great soft landing to begin your travels. They are genuinely invested in making sure you are getting value from your internship and are incredibly open to any feedback or concerns you have.
I wish I could go back and do it again!
