The most epic 6-month internship
Everyone dreams of travelling for free. But what if you can get paid doing what you love? — Learn the tricks of the trade, collect experiences most can only dream of, while adding relevant marketing skills to your resume!
For those who love to travel and create inspiring content, this is probably the best job in the world.
But don’t just take it from us, here’s what the last interns had to say:
“This internship is going to be a lot tougher than it looks on social media, but trust that it’ll be an unparalleled learning experience whether you’re a writer, videographer or marketer. Everyone embodies a learning spirit here and every day, I’m learning something new from my peers to be a better writer, traveller and person.” — Travis, TTI Writer & Host
“Stepping foot in places I’ve never been, experiencing exciting things I’ve never imagined, and gaining life lessons that sitting in a regular office would never have allowed me to — to me, this is the best deal in life I’ve signed myself up for thus far, and will definitely be what defines me forever.” — Edelyn, TTI Community Manager
“Dancing in the rain in Phuket, catching sunsets in Santorini, chugging 1L beers in Berlin and waking up above a sea of clouds in Khao Kho. These are some of my fond memories from my past few trips with TTI. You get to travel for work and have a blast while you’re at it. What are you waiting for?“ — Michael, TTI Videographer
“During this 6-month internship, I’ve done a lot more amazing activities than I have the rest of my life so far.. All the while with supportive and wack-ass fun colleagues and bosses. One thing I took away was that “you miss 100% of chances you don’t take”. So what are you waiting for?“ — Michelle, TTI Writer
