CareerUp | Internships Abroad Reviews
Submitted by Ali - King's College | February 11, 2017
My internship abroad was one of the most interesting experiences I have had. Prior to my internship in Singapore, I had never traveled to any part of Asia. I had just finished my second year at university and I knew I needed to gain business experience to improve my CV. My university's professional advisor recommended I contact Career Up. They were very professional and organized. The process of obtaining my internship took just 4 weeks. It was certainly an exciting experience to travel to Asia and work alongside the locals. The Singaporean people are very friendly and I always felt welcome. On a number of occasions I was invited to birthday parties and other events. Overall, I had a wonderful experience!
Beijing career up
Submitted by G - Florida State | February 07, 2017
Hi everyone. As I am a Senior this year I needed to get internship experience before I graduated. I did a lot of research looking for a internship.
I found out about intern abroad programs and applied to a bunch of different ones. I choose Career Up because they are the only one that tells you what internships you will get before you have pay a lot of money. All the other program ask you for hundreds of dollars and you have no idea what internship you will get.
Career Up did what they said and got me a internship at a good company. It was a good internship and I think it will help me for jobs. I have never been to China before and it was a bit of a culture shock. I am not from a big city so it was a big change to see so many people all the time.
Career up event managment internship
Submitted by Janis Ivanov - Univeristy of Oregon | February 04, 2017
I recently finished my event management internship in Manila with Career Up. It was really a great experience. I worked at a super fun company. They did all sorts of big music events and events for companies. There was always something new happening. The program was really easy. The people in the Philippines are really nice too. If you go make sure that you do a trip to visit Palawan island. It is so beautiful.
Private equity summer analyst - Euler Capital
Submitted by William Daniel Wong - loyola marymount university | September 03, 2016
My experience with SK Pacific, and time with Euler Capital was one of the best learning opportunities I have ever had. Charles, my on-the-ground coordinator, was very supportive, resourceful, and accessible to any question or need. For the first month, I was the only SK Pacific intern in the city, however Charles was able to introduce me to other professionals within my industry to ensure I had a smooth transition between cultures. My internship with Euler Capital has added incredible value to my professional profile, and I am already in contact with larger firms within the US regarding interviews and their respective recruitment processes. If you have any banking or high finance placements in Rio or Mumbai next summer, I would be on the first flight out of California. 10/10.
Advice for other interns: Your experience is what you make it. It is important to educate yourself on the culture of your location, and understand that business and social customs are important and necessary to assimilate to. It is necessary to have an outgoing attitude every day in order to capitalize on each opportunity presented to you. There are great people in every city who are willing to help you in your career, all you have to do is ask. I have made great friends in Beijing, there is no doubt in my mind that my career will take me back to Asia.
SK Pacific internship
Submitted by Andrew Shoemaker - - | August 02, 2016
I completed my internship with SK Pacific last summer. I choose to write this review because I recently secured my dream job and my internship experience in Asia helped me get here. SK Pacific placed me at a private equity firm in Asia (I can not be more specific for privacy reasons). It was my first experience working in the industry I wanted to break into and there is no way I would have found this opportunity without help.
After the internship, I finished my last year of college and then started applying to jobs. In my interviews my experience in Asia was one of the main topics of discussion. I had worked on the same type of firm in Asia and my new boss has told me he was also very impressed with the international perspective my past work experience gave me. To be honest, I never told them SK Pacific helped me find the internship.
I know there are a lot of people like me considering this program and I will say it is worth it. It was a big commitment for me to do this program and there were times it was difficult living away from home for the first time. However, now that I have found a great full time job, I can really appreciate the value of my experience.
