Alexander from Virginia Tech shares his experience working in finance, actuarial and operations management while interning in London with Absolute Internship. 

Back in my senior year of high school, I took a trip to the UK with my class, and it turned out to be one of the greatest experiences of my life. I have wanted to go back ever since. Imagine my excitement when I saw an opportunity to work in London as an intern! The opportunity came about through Absolute Internship, a program that brings together students from various nations to work in major cities across the globe.

We interviewed Chloë, who completed a London Finance Internship on the Absolute Summer 2017 program. After her successful internship, she was offered a remote part-time position as she continues pursuing her studies in Business and French at Western University, Canada.

Why did you decide to do an internship abroad? How did you choose London?
I decided to do an internship after my first year because I was looking for relevant experience in my field and I knew I needed to work over the summer but I also wanted to travel. The Absolute Internship program was an awesome hybrid. I had thought about Madrid but decided on London because I had been there before and loved it. It is easy to travel and you can speak English so there is less of a culture shock. I love the culture of the city and the fact that it has one of the largest finance industries.

Nuria from the Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen-Nürnberg tells us about her Public Relations Internship in Singapore as one of Absolute's Intern Heroes. 

Public Relations in Singapore is a particular sector with its own working hours. While most of my Absolute Internship friends enter the office at 9 am or earlier and are done by 6 pm, I start at 10 and leave the office around 7 pm. It feels good to sleep longer especially with this hot and humid weather. This is quite different from the German schedule I'm used to that tends to begin very early in the morning to take advantage of the daylight hours. But here daylight and the cold are not important factors for Singaporeans’ life. Every day is a good day to go to the pool.

Theodore Whal from Metropolitan State University shares his experience as an intern hero in Madrid, Spain while completing an Entrepreneurship internship

After my Papa died in March, I thought it would be a good time to get away and make him proud. I chose to intern in Madrid because I felt an internship in an English-speaking country would not be challenging enough and I had some previous knowledge on different Spanish speaking countries and the language from school. As an Intern Hero, my internship was my number one priority every day before, during and after Madrid.  However, I can’t say the adventure travel mindset wasn’t hitting the priority list either; because it most definitely was.  I knew that my internship was going to shape my career and help me dive into this idea of international business, and additionally, how I see a future for myself in the field.
