I wanted an international work experience and learn more about business and marketing in a real life setting as I see myself living in Asia in the future. CRCC Asia landed me an intership that I otherwise would not have been able to land on my own. Everything from the accommodations, internship, on-the-ground support, etc. was prepared for me since the day I was accepted onto the program. My internship exceeded my expectations and surprised me in ways I had never expected. I got to experience a unique work culture at an international company in fast-paced Seoul that challenged me to diversify my skillset and kept me on my feet. I got to meet people from countries I never would have imagined meeting and became good friends with them. I consider this program a once in a lifetime experience and appreciate how well-prepared and effortless the entire process was.
The experience and connections I have gained from this program are something I could not have achieved had I been a part of a domestic internship. International exchange has enhanced my professional abilities in a corporate setting and adapting to another culture, whilst living and working in Vietnam was life changing.
An international internship with CRCC Asia is the opportunity of a lifetime and not to be missed! I spent 2 months in Vietnam, based in Ho Chi Minh city completing a textiles and fashion internship. The internship came at the perfect time for me as I’d just completed my honours degree in Textiles and was ready to break away from study to an exciting experience.
The CRCC Asia’s staff and company who hosted me and 6 others interns in Vietnam were fantastic. The staff were friendly, welcoming and supportive, this helped us settle really well into life in Ho Chi Minh quickly. The host company was the perfect fit for myself and 2 other interns, we got amazing work experience which wouldn’t be available to us otherwise.
If you’re thinking about going to doing an internship in Vietnam, don’t hesitate. We experienced and grew to love the amazing culture, sights and people of Vietnam, who just have to be some of the friendliest and kindest out there. Thanks CRCC Asia!
My time in Seoul was honestly some of the best weeks of my life. Being able to explore a new job and industry in a new city was a little overwhelming at first, but honestly felt so empowering and was an amazing opportunity. The internship I was placed at was really great and I had so many opportunities to see the city and its landmarks. I made some great friends with the other interns and buddies, and was able to experience a lot of fun things I couldn’t have at home. I really hope I never forget my time in Seoul, I will cherish it for as long as I can
The programme was a fun and a good learning experience.
The staff from CRCC were nice and helped adapt to being in a foreign country. They offered helpful advice and good suggestions on where to eat and what experience. It was comfortable to ask them for any help if needed.
CRCC placed in a good company where I learnt a lot. The coworkers and my supervisor were nice and helped me adjust to the working culture in Korea.
Great course, awesome staff and awesome place!
Through this program, I had the privilege of getting the chance to work in the amazing culture of Vietnam. I appreciate the CRCC staff’s efforts in making this experience worthwhile and easy, especially Mi Tran, Sammy Pham, and Kelsy Nguyen. My host company was a perfect fit for me and made me feel very welcome. They introduced me to a lot of local food and activities. This is a great way to have work experience in your chosen field and travel at the same time. Highly recommend.
Thank you for the opportunity to work abroad and not only expand my career specific skills, but also my cultural competency!
Nearing the end when I had to update my resume, Career Bridge gave me a list of vocabulary to use and how to implement that in my resume after my internship. The examples they gave in the different countries about their business culture and just culture in general: the do’s and don’t’s, what’s normal here, and how to adapt accordingly.. were helpful
I got a lot of compliments from my coworkers on projects related to programming. I’m happy with the work I and my co-intern have been able to get involved with.
