Getting a job overseas is quite a challenge. Picking up and moving to another country, immersing yourself in a foreign culture and learning to communicate simple tasks can be challenging enough without the added burden of having to find employment.

But the benefits of working abroad are indisputable. Living and working overseas teaches you about yourself, forces you to solve problems and tests your mettle as a professional and a human being. Potential employers back home know this, too.

Adding foreign work experience to your resume is a game changer. In a low-growth environment where jobs for recent college graduates are scarce, being able to speak a second language and thrive in a different business culture could be the differentiator for starting a successful career.

Think about it. If two job candidates are otherwise equal, as the hiring manager wouldn't you be partial to the guy who spent 2 months in Shanghai taking Chinese and working with a rapidly-growing international firm?

We started Internships In Asia to give you exactly that--the chance to be the unique candidate. We want to find you the right internship in Asia, where you can use the experience to jumpstart you on a path to prosperity.

What you get with Internships In Asia:

  • Appropriate business visa (including all applicable consular fees)

In simplest terms, at Internships in Asia we do the heavy lifting by finding you a job and fulfiling the bureaucratic paperwork. From there, your Asian adventure is left up to you.

*Though our internships are non-paid, some compensation--including stipends, food and entertainment--may become available depending on employer
