Finding an internship on your own

Finding an internship abroad independently is usually quite time-consuming and the process can be complicated. Especially in Asia, in order to find a placement and get selected, you often have to visit your future employee during the application process. That’s why a lot of the students look for an internship while studying abroad at their favorite destination. While in the destination you have the chance to build up a contact network and get to know interesting organizations. When looking for placement on your own, be active and contact several different organizations. Make sure to look into different resources for information on work permits, visas, accommodation and scholarships.
