South Korea overview

South Korea Internship

South Korea, also known as “The Land of the Morning Calm,” is a unique and dynamic country that offers beautiful sceneries, a one of a kind culture, and a delectable cuisine. Korea is vastly recognized as being one of the top technology hubs across the globe and is revolutionizing the industry. With an internship in Korea through AIP, you have the opportunity to explore this country first hand and experience everything it has to offer.

South Korea provides great opportunities to acquire international working experience for students and young professionals, which is beneficial to further your career. You will be highly valued if employers see that you’ve completed an international internship in Korea. Additionally, you will have the chance to increase your network of contacts from many industry professionals.

With Korean companies continuously developing their international presence, working opportunities are expanding at a rapid rate. The Information Technology industry is well established in South Korea and is a very popular sector to undergo an international internship. In addition, other industry fields that are common to pursue in Korea are Arts & Fashion, Entrepreneurship, and PR & Marketing.

While AIP is partnered with a wide range of companies from multinational corporations to exciting startups, there are an abundant amount of opportunities available to pursue in Korea. Whether you want to do an internship during your academic studies or over the summer, we accept applications throughout the whole year.

Internship experience in South Korea

Internship in South Korea

South Korea is unlike any other country in Asia which possesses a very unique and rich culture. A particular aspect of Seoul (capital of South Korea) that you will observe is that the city is very modern and technologically advanced but still maintains a deep Korean magnificence about itself. Whether it is the savory smells coming from a nearby Korean BBQ restaurant or the K-Pop beats from a karaoke cafe, you will be acquainted with the lifestyle of living and working in South Korea. 

When you have some free time outside of your internship, we highly encourage you to explore everything that South Korea has to offer. A few must-see landmarks during your internship in Korea are the famous Gyeongbokgung Palace which was the main royal palace of the Joseon dynasty, Haeundae Beach in Busan that has a lot of popular nearby restaurants and shops, and Jeju Island that possesses incredible landscapes and terrains.
