Your Internship Placement:

Next Leg

Public relations and marketing careers are some of the most desirable that exist. Over 25% of the applications that we receive for our programs concentrate on this sector. We partner with blue-chip companies in Hong Kong, supplying them with talented interns in their PR and marketing departments. 


Public relations internships support the aim of generating interest in an individual, cause, company or product. The aim is to develop a positive image in the eyes of the consumer, the media and the public at large. Typical responsibilities include writing press releases, contacting media outlets, representing clients at events, covering red carpet events and much more.


A marketing internship aims to determine market demand for a service or product and convert that into sales revenue. We have a wide variety of first-class marketing internships, from traditional off-line corporate marketing to viral on-line roles concentrating on social media.


As an intern in the events sector, you may be involved in planning, management, marketing and operations functions. You will be working with a friendly supportive team, organising high profile events in a dynamic and fast-moving environment. We work with a number of well-known event organisers and venues, including 5 star hotels and the Hong Kong Jockey Club.


Our roles in Hong Kong do not require any Chinese language skills. However, if you do speak Mandarin or Cantonese, we will take this into consideration when suggesting potential roles.


An exclusive and unique component of our programs are the professional development resources that provide tailored and structured training to enhance your skills and knowledge in order to get the most out of your internship and prepare you for a successful future career. Our resources include communication and leadership workshops, an online professional development tool and expert training materials.


The type of work you will be doing during your internship will vary hugely according to the company and organisation in which you are placed. When you apply, we will talk you through your preferences, motivations and future career aspirations to ensure that we have a clear understanding of what you are looking for from your placement. If you should have any special requirements, we will take these into account when arranging your internship. 

About Hong Kong:

Next Leg

Hong Kong is a magical, modern city built from the ancient civilisation of China 5000 years ago. Cradling a cocktail of cultures, Chinese heritage and British colonial history, Hong Kong will take your breath away. 


The skyline of Hong Kong represents its opportunities. It exudes an aura of success that attracts and intimidates in equal measure. Lining both sides of the Victoria Harbour are some of the world's most renowned financial institutions and investment banks. Nestling side-by-side are skyscrapers where the headquarters of many of the most profitable Chinese companies now sit. A city that never sleeps - Hong Kong is a shimmering playground for Wall Street power-players, commercial tycoons and fashion trendsetters.


Cosmopolitan is a synonym for Hong Kong. A stroll through the city can be likened to an express journey through time. 500 year-old village walls remind of the Hakka community heritage while Georgian and Edwardian architectures serve as a reminder of Hong Kong's colonial past. You will never forget striking landmarks like Cheung Po Tsai Cave - the famous hiding place for a notorious 19th century pirate - and The Peak, a place you will be rendered speechless by the magnificent views below.


The evening scent of incense sticks lit by the millions of households still practising Buddhist traditions, laced with the aroma of delicious cuisine wafting from restaurants serving food from all around the world, will guarantee to leave a lasting imprint on all of your senses, reminding you forever of this enchanting city, the gleaming, bustling pearl of Asia.

What will I see in Hong Kong?

11 photos


1. Are these internships paid?

Our mission is to facilitate accelerated professional development for international students. Whether these internships are paid or not is down to each specific placement company. However, internships do tend to be unpaid in Hong Kong.


2. Why should I join this program?

This program is an investment in your future and will give you a substantial advantage. International, blue chip work experience will significantly aid you when searching for long-term employment. You will have demonstrated the ability to think outside the box and handle another culture and language while working for a highly respected name. And the above doesn’t even touch on your personal development and the fun you will have!


3. I am from Hong Kong - can I still apply?

Our focus is to provide accelerated professional development for international participants on our programs. Applicants from mainland China are very welcome to apply for our Hong Kong program. If you are from Hong Kong, we recommend looking at our programs in other destinations around the world.


4. When is the deadline to apply?

Our programs start every month of the year. We accept applicants on a rolling basis. We recommend applying at least 2 months before your preferred start date. In high season (May, June, July & August start-dates) we recommend applying at least 3 months before your preferred start date.


5. Do I need a degree to apply for an internship?

No. A degree is not essential, although it will help when finding a suitable internship and will make the placement process easier.


6. Can I see a list of employers or choose to intern at a specific company?

We do not provide a list of partner companies. Firstly, our list of partner companies is not static. We often partner with new companies if they would be a better match for a participant. We have dedicated out-reach teams, working on our participants´ accounts, in all program destinations, meaning our list of partners is constantly growing and evolving. Secondly, we do not provide a list as interns then attempt to “pick and choose” which companies they specifically want to work for. This promotes unrealistic expectations, as partner company needs, your wishes & background and external factors such as timing are all taken into account during internship-placement. If you are accepted into our program you are guaranteed a great role in your area of interest. However, due to the factors listed above a specific company cannot be guaranteed.


7. What hours can I expect to work?

Typically, participants work an average work week of no more than 40 hours. The company at which you are interning will set your work hours but the majority of internships will take place between 9 am and 5 pm.


8. Can I obtain academic credit?

If you need this internship for a university course or module, we will ensure that you secure academic credit.


9. When will I find out where my internship will be?

Our Hong Kong team will engage in a collaborative internship placement process with you and confirm your internship role typically around four to six weeks before your departure date. Please note this is a guideline and may differ during peak seasons.


10. Is attendance at our events mandatory?

All of our events and activities that we organize are optional, but your internship is not. With your internship, you may not miss work for any reason other than health and family emergencies unless previously approved by your employer.


11. What happens when I arrive in Hong Kong?

You will be picked up by our trusted driver on arrival in Hong Kong and given a welcome pack & induction by our team at your accommodation. In case you arrive in Hong Kong after 8pm local time your welcome pack and induction will be given to you in the morning the next day.


12. Can I live with a friend or family member and take the housing out of the cost?

We are generally unable to remove any elements from our all-inclusive programs. The employers we work with depend and ask for this service as it guarantees your reliability. However, if you have particular needs please do contact us.
