Pursuing an international internship in Indonesia will provide you with a completely unique and valuable experience. With a taste of big city life in Jakarta and white sandy exotic beaches in Bali, you will be able to witness first hand what it is like to live and work in this incredible country. Indonesia is made up of a cocktail of cultures with major influences from India, China, and the Middle East.
During free time away from your internship, you will have the chance to explore all of the beautiful sights that Indonesia has to offer. A few must-see landmarks during your internship in Indonesia is Tanah Lot which is a famous rock formation off the coast of Bali, Mount Bromo which is home to the Krakatau volcano, and the crystal blue waters at the Gili Islands that are the ultimate paradise. These are just a few famous places to visit but we encourage you to create your own memorable experience in Indonesia.
Bali is a province of Indonesia consisting of the island of Bali and a few smaller neighboring islands. Located on the east of the island of Java and with Denpasar as its provincial capital, it is also the most popular tourist destination in Indonesia.
The island of Bali has a population of about 4.225 million (2014), and to the aspiring intern who is also a lover of art, it has so much to offer; for the people are well known for their highly advanced arts, such as painting, sculpture, metal working, leather, music, and poetry.
Due to the fact that Bali is a popular tourist location, its economy is mainly based on tourism and agriculture. With tourism-related businesses making up 80% of its economy, the tourism/hospitality industry is now the largest single industry in Bali in terms of income. Thus, there are many opportunities, and also many companies in this sector where a student or young professional can do an internship to gain experience.
Bali’s real estate industry has been on the rise, and not surprisingly so, given the level of tourism in the area. On the southern parts of the island which are also the main tourist areas, such as Kuta, Legian, Seminyak, Bukit peninsula, etc., there are lots of 5-star projects and expensive properties being developed, with many real estate agencies also being established to oversee the development, sales and rent of these projects. So this is good news for you if you would like to pursue a Bali internship in real estate.
As the most frequented holiday location in the Indonesian archipelago, Bali no doubt has many attractions to offer, and these include exotic temples and palaces, beaches, resorts, yoga and meditation retreats, great biodiversity of marine species, pristine jungles, and so on.
Just on the Northwest Coast of Java, the most populous island in the world, lies Jakarta, Indonesia’s capital city and also its largest, inhabited by about 10 million people (2014). Not surprisingly, Jakarta has always been Indonesia’s centre of culture, politics, economics, trade and finance, and has also more recently become recognized as a notable industrial city and a centre for learning. Over the years, the city has had its language, architecture and cuisine influenced by a diverse mix of cultures, including Chinese, Indian, European, Javanese, Arab and Malay, making it quite an interesting place for you to be.
As the capital city, Jakarta holds many promises for students or young professionals who wish to gain some international work experience in a major economic city in Asia through our Asia Internship Program. It boasts of many companies in different key industries, and many of these companies are willing to work with young talents from abroad.
In the manufacturing industry for example, there are several margarine and soap factories, iron foundries, breweries, textile mills, saw mills, and so on. Things like glassware, wire cable, aluminum, and even automotive products are also manufactured. Some notable companies in this sector include PT. United Can Company Ltd., and PT. Kangar Consolidated Industries.
