The Perks of Doing an Internship in Vietnam with SE Vietnam

Posted by SE Vietnam - Student Exchange Vietnam

Are you an experienced traveller or a newbie? What is your biggest concern while finding an internship abroad? Whether you are an experienced traveller or a novice, there are unavoidable challenges of getting together a working plan – including securing an internship placement, housing, visas, transportation… The preparation process creates unnecessary stress that could ruin the enjoyment of adventuring in a foreign country. This is when an internship provider like SE Vietnam is a perfect choice for a well-suited, stress-free internship in Vietnam. That’s why, in this article, we will explore all the things that SE Vietnam has to offer you.

SE Vietnam Gives you Leverage to Internships You May Never Find on your Own

Finding an internship suitable to your skills and major is hard, finding one abroad is much harder. The arduous process includes spending lots of time doing research (about a place you may have never been to), making contacts and getting frustrated over misunderstandings caused by the language barrier. And this hasn’t even included the long and complicated process of getting a visa, arranging your accommodation and figuring out transportation in the country. However, SE Vietnam is here to save you the troubles, we have an extensive network of partners here in Vietnam from public health providers to various established businesses and social enterprises. Not only does this save you a lot of precious time and stress, it also provides you with more diverse and fitting choices for your desired internship in Vietnam. Our full service program also provides visa support, accommodation arrangement (you can choose to either stay at a host family or by yourself in an apartment), and in-country transportation.

SE Vietnam Helps You Stress Less about Culture Shock

Culture shock is a real for most of the people spending one month or above in a foreign country, and whether you like it or not, there is a pretty good chance you will experience it during your internship in Vietnam. And when that happens, SE Vietnam team is right there with you. We understand that it is hard to get used to living and working in a country as opposed to travelling and having fun so we built ourselves a set of guidance that outlines the possible cultural differences, dos and don’ts, basic Vietnamese conversational phrases. The guidance will be given to you in the on-site orientation day one after your arrival in Vietnam to give you a better understanding of the culture and reduce your stresses later. We also provide 24/7 support from a Program Coordinator, and better yet, a local buddy (yes your own local buddy in Vietnam that you can brag about when you are back home), they will check up on you as often as they can to make sure everything is going smoothly. They are willing to spend as much time as needed to help you untangle the concerns that you have.

SE Vietnam Enables You to Travel More

When we said we help you travel more, we mean it in both literal and figurative meanings. You will have more chances to travel and you will travel to places much cooler than an average tourist can reach. Why? Our full service program is designed to maximize your chance of experiencing in and out of the area you are based, a city tour is mandatory to get you familiarized with your surrounding area’s main historical, cultural attraction and entertainment places while an excursion outside the city is a chance for you to explore further into the even more local and exotic destinations. All of these trips are covered by us so you don’t have to worry about anything besides buying enough cool gifts for folks at home. That being said, we know adventurous adventures abroad is never enough and you would want to explore the city more than just on certain weekends, so this is when a local buddy comes in, during your time in Vietnam, you will be matched with a local student who shares the same interest of making international friends and learning about different cultures. The buddy will help you explore the city’s cool hidden places and local hot spots that you otherwise wouldn’t know if you’re travelling on your own.
