Help Your Kids StandOut from the Crowd with a Summer Internship

Are your children planning to return home from university this summer? Are you wondering how to keep them busy? A summer internship in Hong Kong is an ideal way to fill those long holidays with work experience that is both productive and beneficial to them in the longer term. StandOut Internships organises internships in Hong Kong for international and local university students and can help you to arrange work experience for your children aged 18 to 26.

An international summer internship will distinguish your child from other university students competing with them in today’s job market. StandOut Internships provides students with real-world work experience by offering quality internships with Hong Kong’s top companies.  Students will be immersed into the business world by working with professional companies prepared to dedicate resources to support well-structured and supervised internships.

Through an internship, students will develop skills in problem solving, communicating, taking initiative, self-confidence, and adaptability.  StandOut Internships will assist in developing these skills through a professional development training course. The course provides interns with training on Hong Kong business etiquette and professionalism, and prepares them for what’s expected of them in their internships, so that they get the most from their work experience.

It is important for emerging professionals to grow a circle of mentors, contacts, and friends to help build their future careers. StandOut Internships provides students with an opportunity to expand their network globally.  Supervisors will provide feedback on the student’s work ethic and skill level, and become valuable contacts for future networking.

StandOut Internships provides a comprehensive internship program package that includes:

  • Quality internship placement (from 6 weeks up to 12 weeks)
  • Visa processing
  • Accommodation in a convenient location (if required)
  • Professional development training
  • Social events with other interns
  • General mentoring support and feedback

Students will also make life long friends and memories with fellow interns through weekly networking events, sightseeing, and day trips around Hong Kong. The international internship program is an experience that will benefit the intern’s educational and professional development in the longer term.
