Life as intern in HK
Immerse into local culture & build your network
Every month, AIESEC in Hong Kong will organize various types of gathering to enable interns to immerse into local culture. Activities include hotpot dinner, visiting the Big Buddha, Chinese New Year Party, etc. Join us on Facebook to receive the latest event update!
Apart from discovering Hong Kong culture, having a network of friends is equally important. Through participating in these gatherings, we can interact with each otherand build a support system among ourselves. This kind of interaction helps us to reflect on our personal value and reinvent ourselves.
Participate in insightful events, seminars, conference, etc
All year round, there are lots of business networking and leadership conferences happening around Hong Kong. You can find them on the website of Meetup, InvestHK, HKTDC and many different kinds of channel online.
By attending these events, we become a world citizen by showing our interest to world issue and taking responsibility for improving the world. We are inspired to be more solution oriented despite the challenges and risks ahead. In the near future, these will be our drive to fight for a better world.
Share your leadership story
Occasionally, there will be chances for you to share your internship experience with other young people in Hong Kong. The scale could range from a small group of 4-5 people to a plenary of 200+ people! The photo above captured the moment when 2 interns from IT and Education background respectively sharing their leadership journey so far.
In the process of preparation and sharing, we not only become more self-aware but also learn to empower others. These two elements eventually equip us to be a better leader in the future.
I would say, it is an eye-opening experience and it definitely helps me grow as a professional and as a person
After my arrival, thanks to AIESEC I was able to meet new interesting people and engage in fun weekend activities like hiking, sightseeing and bike trips. My experience of work and life in Hong Kong has been greatly improved by the effort of the amazing AIESEC people 🙂
My AIESEC internship in Hong Kong has been filled with laughter, great memories, and long-lasting friendships. I am glad I decided to step out of my comfort zone and experience a new life abroad.
I am glad to meet all AIESEC EPs and members of the organisation. Thank you very much for support before and during the internship. It was a great and valuable experience which opens more possibilities for me.
Nice and explicit, learning so much from it!
