General

The Inturns program helps you get work experience from anywhere on the globe! Doing a remote internship gives you more freedom as to how and when you work. An added bonus is all the time saved from not having to commute to a boring office. In this day and age, especially with all the current turn of events, the Inturns Program from Jobfindr can offer you a valuable work experience no matter where you are. Welcome to the future.

There could be numerous reasons why someone would prefer a remote internship over a traditional internship, but here are some of the reasons we encounter the most frequent:

  • Inturns aspire to have an international career in the future, but for now they have obligations in their own country that prevent them from going abroad, and consequently prevent them from obtaining experience with international companies.
  • Inturns have wanderlust. They love to travel and explore new places. That lifestyle is not possible if you are confined to a certain city or country. Remote internships give them the freedom they want, but at the same time they can gather valuable working experiences.
  • The novel Coronavirus is sweeping the world at the moment. Countries are locked down, planes are not flying, people are self-quarantining, and companies are working remotely. We don’t know how long this will last, and students are losing valuable time. Inturns want to spend this time wisely, so it doesn’t get lost. A remote internship where they can work from the comfort of their own home, while gaining international work experience is a great way to get through this pandemic.

To be able to become an Inturn, you have to either be enrolled in a university or you already graduated! Recently graduated, or graduated 30 years ago and want to try something new? Doesn’t matter! Everyone is welcome to become an Inturn as long as they are ready to immerse themselves in an educational experience and do their best to grow as a personal and professional.

We’re interested in connecting with students who are passionate about building a future career through a practical learning experience with the company you are matched with. Suitable applicants will be self-starters, resourceful, enthusiastic, and have no problems participating remotely.

We’re interested in working with companies who make the educational value of the internship a priority because they understand that is the path to true synergy with a successful Inturns applicant. Companies should be engaging, give challenging assignments, adequate assistance, and communicate periodically and clearly with the successful Inturns applicant.

The Inturns program, which is powered by Jobfindr, has a vast network of companies in a whole lot of different business sectors. We are aiming to provide you with suitable opportunities in all industries. If you are interested in starting a remote internship in an industry that isn’t listed on our website, send us a message! We can dig into our network to see if we can accommodate you!

Services

We help students prepare and secure remote internships at reputable companies based worldwide, but particularly in Asia. We also provide career coaching services.

We have a number of packages available and these include:

  • Prep Pack

The Prep Pack is ideal for the people who just need a little head start. They are excited to wander into the next part of their life, and just need some help preparing for what’s to come. The students who pick the Prep Pack are the perfectionists who just want to tweak their strategy before they take on the corporate world on their own. 

  • Inturn Pack

Students who pick the Inturn Pack know what they want. Motivated to graduate, or start their professional career, as soon as possible. Maybe they are having trouble finding a suitable internship, or maybe they don’t have the time. The Inturn Pack will get you ready for a high quality remote internship that suits your wants and needs, and when you finish you will have that valuable work experience with an international company. People who complete the Inturn program set themselves up for success, in the most efficient way possible.

  • Career Pack

The Career Pack is for people who want it all. Maybe they want to feel that extra bit secure when entering into adulthood. They want to be 100% sure they are ready to go out on their own and start their career. The Career Pack is perfect for the people who just want that extra bit of guidance, that extra bit of safety, before they have to fly on their own.

If you are in doubt about with package to choose or have any questions, feel free to chat with us (bottom of screen) or email us at inturns@jobfindr.com

We’re happy to work with you and your university to ensure you are able to meet the requirements to get credit for this internship.

Application Process

Having the right attitude and clearly demonstrating what you are looking to achieve from joining the Inturns program will help us understand that you are a suitable candidate for one of our internships.

It depends on the circumstances. As we focus on quality ahead of simply placement, it might take a little longer to get placed. However, we’ll work with you to ensure that it fits into any time constraint you may have.

Although we do our best to ensure you will be placed into an internship that completely matches your preference, we can’t 100% guarantee you will be placed in an internship. We’ll return your fee if we are unable to offer your an acceptable internship offer.

Pricing

The Inturns fee covers the curation of a remote internship with an international company. This process includes the initial consultation, LinkedIn and resume review and placement within a company. If we can’t offer you a suitable internship, we’ll refund the fee.

We’re not only finding you a suitable internship, we’re creating the necessary conditions for you to have a positive experience. Our work begins long before you start an internship, and our goal is to create as much value as possible for the Inturn and company.

After we review your application, if we feel you are suitable for the Inturns program, we’ll reach out with an acceptance email. We’ll send you information about the next steps and an invoice for the program fee (depending on which package you choose). Once we receive receipt that payment has been processed, we’ll schedule a consultation and get on the path to securing an internship. If we don’t place you in a suitable internship, we’ll refund your payment.

If we can’t offer you an internship that reasonably matches your application, we’ll refund the fee.

We work hard to ensure the internship closely matches your desires, so we’re unable to offer a refund once the internship has begun.

Being an Inturn

We’re looking for driven students, who aim to add value to their career by developing skills in a practical manner. What skills you need will depend on your own area of study, the skill(s) you wish to develop, and the needs of the company. However, you do not need to be an expert but enthusiasm is a must.

Inturns are required to be able to speak English. Being able to speak multiple languages is of course a huge benefit, but English is a minimum requirement.

  • A laptop or desktop of their choice, with a webcam
  • A fast and secure internet connection
  • A set of headphones with a microphone, or a computer with a good built-in microphone

For communication between the Inturns and the company, we recommend using platforms like Zoom, Slack, Whatsapp, Google Hangouts, Kakaotalk, Skype, or any other platform the company prefers. The Inturns will be informed of which platforms the company uses in due time

That depends on the company! We can help you discuss that with the company supervisor if that is an option!

That depends on what kind of remote internship you start! Every company has their own schedule and wishes, as do the Inturns. During onboarding we work together with the company and the Inturn to find the perfect fit for their remote internship. 

It depends on the availability of you and the company you are matched with, but generally between 1-3 months.

You’ll work with reputable companies working in an industry that suits your career trajectory.

It is not a paid position. Inturns is designed as an immersive educational experience that aims to support the building of a career, think of it like a practical summer school.

Miscellaneous 

We’re based in Seoul and Busan, South Korea.

Inturns started to provide students and graduates with the opportunities needed to kick start their careers, while also providing companies with global ambitions, the ability to collaborate with students who can add value to their development. We believe that education is the key to professional growth and Inturns will plant seeds of understanding in companies and interns – building relevant skills for employment and entrepreneurship.

We’re always on the lookout for talent, but currently have no open positions.

Please email us if you are in Seoul or Busan and we’ll try to accommodate your request. Please note that due to COVID19, we’re adhering to social distancing and this may impact our ability to host you at our offices.

No. Since you are able to work from home, or that cute little coffee shop around the corner, you are not leaving the country. Hence, Inturns don’t need to get a visa for the country their company is located in.

We hope you were able to find the answers you were looking for! If not, don’t worry. Just shoot us a message by clicking on the chat bubble in the bottom-right corner! We will get back to you as soon as possible!
