A great experience for the summer
Submitted by Alexia Ellis - DePaul University | December 21, 2015
Absolute Internship was a great experience for the summer. Within the program, I met other interns from around the world. Absolute Internship had provided different activities during the weekdays and weekends, and interns had also planned on what the group should do, so it was a good way to get together. The internship in Shanghai, I learned a lot about the business model and what other companies had to say about their business model and their history behind their brand, which was part of the brand training seminars. I also had to do a project presentation, interview, a study report, and other tasks that were beneficial and connecting it back to the business model. Overall, I did enjoy it and I found that the interview and project presentation was a valuable opportunity to have that time spent learning about the field that I am pursuing to go into.

Made me learn to adapt

My trip to Shanghai with Absolute Internship encouraged me to reach out into the unknown world and find out who I am. Exploring Shanghai and the Chinese culture forced me to be more adventurous. I found myself embracing a new way of living. Whether I was roaming the markets or at the office, I learned to adapt to challenging situations and conflicts between cultural differences. My internship in Shanghai gave me insight into the works of a start-up and the hard work it takes to get it off the ground. It’s incredible what a month or two in a foreign country, with a bunch of strangers from around the world, will do to you.

Interning in Singapore with Absolute Interniship
Submitted by Julie Lemaitre - Lancaster University | December 08, 2015
This summer, I spend two months in Singapore where I interned at a start-up called Eyeota. I worked there as a Marketing and Account management Intern. The people in the company were incredible! Everyone was so international, nice and happy and so considerate! I had the best time there! Absolute Internship where actually the ones who found the internship for me so this would not have been possible without them!
Aside from the internship, the program organised weekend trips, dinners, industry visits and so many other amazing things! They took care of the administrative papers and were present if we needed anything. I met lifetime friends from my company and from the program!
I would recommend Absolute Internship without hesitation!!!

A whole new experience in SINGAPORE !
Submitted by Phoebe Fan - The University of Hong Kong | December 04, 2015
The impression that Singapore has left me definitely exceeded my expectations. The food is amazing, the travelling is easy and convenient and the culture here is magnificent ! Here in Singapore, working hours are relatively short (Compared to Hong Kong), people get off on time for work and everything is well organised and straight forward.
Choosing to intern in Singapore with Absolute Internship is by far one of the best decisions I have made - something to do during the summer holidays which is productive but also fun at the same time. It has been a truly great experience, I would fully recommend it to people- especially for students who are looking to work abroad to gain more experiences and finding out if the field of what they are studying actually suits them. It is certainly not an easy job to find an internship abroad, let alone finding accommodation, sorting out working holiday day passes etc. But luckily with Absolute internship, everything went smoothly and it was all organized very well. These would include a comfortable and convenient located accommodation, various company visits, working holiday pass and last but not least a guaranteed work placement. Not only that, but there are also other students from all around the world who have joined this program and it was what made the whole trip even more fun ! I cannot thank the Absolute internship Team more for giving me this awesome experience abroad and I would totally go again if I had the chance to !

An unforgettable summer
Submitted by Gabriel - University of Westminster, London | December 04, 2015
As the title suggests I went on a life changing experience this July. I did a month-long internship in Hong Kong through Absolute Internship and worked with a company called Direct Link. Direct Link gave me a very warm welcome and integrated me into their corporate and local lifestyles. During my time with Direct Link I also got the opportunity to go to China for a day trip with Direct Link’s sales team which is an unforgettable memory. I witnessed how business is done in both Hong Kong and China first-hand, in the space of a month. My time with Absolute and Direct Link was so amazing it was almost like it never happened.
On another note, my fellow interns were such wonderful people. They came from all corners of the globe and all showed me the same warmth. We did many things together, from; various dinners (and of course Dim Sum); seeing the zoo and botanical garden; our group trip to Lantau Island; visiting Hong Kong’s Bloomberg HQ and IKEA HQ; many selfies, and much more. However, one of the biggest things I have taken away from this experience was the confidence it gave me travel alone to other parts of the world (This was the first time I had travelled alone). Furthermore, I have met so many people of various nationalities in the space of a month and learned some Cantonese too which I am very proud of.
If I could sum up the Absolute Internship team in three words they would be: organised, involved and attentive. The team eased all my qualms about undertaking this internship and coping in Hong Kong; I consider myself an inquisitive person so thanks for putting up with me Absolute! I especially want to thank Aurélie, Thomas, Nicole and Carla for their much valued support in my Hong Kong experience and I’m sure I speak for all the interns when I say that the team performed excellently. I also want to thank my supervisors and all my colleagues at Direct Link for their kindness and support.
There’s so much more I could say about my internship experience with Absolute but isn’t it better for you to see for yourself? Join Absolute Internship and prepare to be stunned!
