Student testimonial

I am so grateful to have had the opportunity of interning at the PR firm of my dreams at Ruder Finn, where I worked five days a week from my desk with a view overlooking Victoria Harbour. I was given so much responsibility and creative freedom in my role, and came away with such increased confidence as a professional communicator and a wealth of personal growth.On top of our working experience, we were invited to networking events, including cocktail parties, boat cruises, skill development classes and inspiring leadership talks; there was always something happening.

No matter what field of business-related studies you’re in, an overseas internship is the best opportunity to add to your resume and overall life experience! There’s nothing stopping you from living out your wildest career dreams in Hong Kong. Griffith Asia Institute and Griffith Global Mobility provide above and beyond support and with the help of a New Colombo Plan mobility grant you don’t need to worry so much about the cost.

Industry testimonial

Royale International has had the pleasure of hosting some very high calibre students from Griffith over the last couple of years and we are keen to continue taking them on. All students have fitted in well with the Royale team and developed great relationships. They have been reliable, dependable and hard working as well as polite, respectful and genuinely interested in the business. In particular, Christine was a superstar and staff are still in touch, so it goes to show the great connection we have had with the global interns. To maximise exposure and student benefit, we are mindful to balance tasks with site visits and personal insights into the running of a large corporate.

If there was potential to host Griffith global interns all year-round, we would jump at the opportunity!
