The Travel Intern Programme – Call for Applications (Jul – Dec 2017)


The Travel Intern Programme is back!

Since our previous interns couldn’t get enough of us, we’ve decided to extend the programme to an exciting 6 months. Yay 😛

Jokes aside, the extended internship will allow us to teach more; you to learn, absorb and put your skills to the test in the real “world” — literally.

This round we’re switching things up a bit. We’re not just looking for writers or video hosts. We’re looking for multi-talented, hyper-efficient, photocopiers, minute-takers, coffee brewers and macaron bakers. content creators who dream, live, and breathe travel.


Travel Interns Wanted (AGAIN): We’re looking for 2 travel enthusiasts who are ready to immerse themselves into the realm of social media, and content marketing (all while traveling and exploring the world).

Here’s a glimpse of what went down last time,

What to get excited about:

– A one-of-a-kind 23-week internship that will add flair to your resume.
– The opportunity to travel on at least 3 sponsored trips.
– Hone your skills in travel writing, videography, content and social media marketing.
– A monthly allowance of minimum SGD$500.
– Freelance opportunities + content performance bonuses.
– Be a part of our small but growing community of travellers (we share stories over food).

Celebrating our first birthday in March. Can you guess the theme?


The Travel Intern programme brought me to places I’ve never set foot in and opened my eyes to a whole new perspective about travelling. They push me to surpass my limits and showed me the many things in life that makes the struggles worthwhile”  – Rachel, Travel Intern 


The internship taught me many things that webinars or Google surfing would never have; given me so many opportunities that not many 3 month programmes would be able to.”  – Ding Yi, Travel Intern 

Chong Ming - The Travel Intern

It has been an amazing experience working under The Travel Intern – I got to learn so much about online writing, social media marketing and traveling. Not only do I get to travel for my job, along the way, I made close friends and met so many like-minded people whom I could network with. Work is injected with fun and we have such a creative and fun-loving team behind The Travel Intern!” – Chong Ming, Writer
