It is intimidating to think about the fact that your school days will be over soon and you are expected to find a first job after college. But do not freak out just yet!  This is a great time to explore many other options before jumping right into the job market at home and find a job that you will stick to for maybe years in the future. One of the options, and a pretty cool one, is to get an internship in Vietnam! Why is this option great?

It is Hard to Get a Job after College 

Nowadays, almost all organizations require previous experience in their “entry-level” job listings. This is obviously not the qualification everyone who JUST got out of college is supposed to have, but it is sadly, a common requirement. Certainly, you could start your career right away with lower paying jobs or jobs that you don’t like and wait for the dream job to come. However, working abroad will make your life WAY more interesting and meaningful!
