I desperately needed an internship to complete my degree. I tried looking for internships on my own, but to no success. Luckily, I came across AIP. I applied on their website, sent my CV, and next thing I know I was being interviewed by one of their admin. Everyone has been so nice and helpful throughout the whole process. They sent many great offers until I finally found the right fit for me. They guided me through processing my visa and not long after I was on a flight to Japan! The whole process was really smooth and quick. During my time in Japan, I met so many great people, experienced their wonderful culture, and gained hands-on work experience that I will always remember. I wouldn’t have been able to achieve any of it without the help of the wonderful staff of AIP!
I completed by first ever remote internship with the help of AIP a few months ago. I was supposed to do an internship in Singapore but had to cancel everything last minute due to the pandemic situation. A friend of mine was doing remote internships through AIP, so I decided to do the same. Honestly, I had my doubts because I didn’t think it would be possible to gain hands-on experience through a remote internship, but I was wrong! I got a chance to work with a tech company in Singapore. Even though we were in different continents and time zones, they treated me like one of their employees and gave me tasks that helped me improve my skills. I had the freedom to work from anywhere and at my own pace. My AIP supervisor was also very kind and responsive to emails. To anyone considering a remote internship now, I definitely recommend you try it out!
