The Travel Intern Life – Casting Call (Dec 2016)
TRAVEL MAKES US INTERNS OF THE WORLD AS THERE’S ALWAYS SOMETHING NEW TO LEARN ON THE ROAD
Work – Travel – Play.
We all love the idea of traveling for work. But is it really traveling if you don’t get to explore your boundaries, broaden your perspectives and bring home a new slice of the world while you’re at it?
After a successful wrap up of the last 3-month internship programme back in May 2016, we’re back once again this time for something new and exciting!
Ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes as a Travel Intern?
This December we’ll be putting together a web series “The Travel Intern Life” to share what goes on in the life of a Travel Intern.
CASTING CALL: We’re looking for 2 Travel enthusiasts who are comfortable in front of the camera and are ready to learn the ropes of what it takes to be a Travel Intern. And of course looking to have fun traveling to 3 destinations non-stop this December.
For a glimpse of what went down last time,
What to expect:
– A sponsored 3-week non-stop overseas trip in December covering a minimum of 3 countries. (*Hint: 1 of the places is in the land of The Rising Sun)
– A one-of-a-kind internship experience you can add to your resume.
– On the ground opportunities to learn about travel writing, videography, content marketing, and social media marketing all while travelling non-stop.
– Be a part of our small but growing community of travellers (we share stories over food).
– An allowance of SGD$500.
“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
“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
“I got to see more of the world, learn more different cultures, and also meet more people from all walks of life. The fun-loving TTI community has made the entire experience a magical one!” – Jiaqin, Writer
