How it works (for host companies)

4 - STEP PROCESS

Our entire process is a simple 4-step journey, from when you express your interest in hosting our students to after they finish the internship at your organization. At any stage, we are here to provide you support and answer any concerns you may have.


Inquiry

To get started, you can give us a call to +84 32 000 619 or email us at partner@abroader.org or fill out our Intern Request Form to express your interest in hosting. Our Program Coordinator will then get to know you, your day-to-day business, office culture and work environment and how our intern(s) might be able to help with your work. Having a thorough understanding of your organization will allow us to set accurate expectations for the intern(s) and be able to find you the best fit.  During this phase, we will also help you create an internship job description and provide you with all program relevant details, including ABROADER’s partnership process, intern’s background and expectations, internship timeline, matching process as well as needed logistics.

Intern Selection

After learning about your needs and expectations for the intern(s), we will recruit, screen and select the best candidate(s) to present to you. You then will review our candidate(s) through their application, decide whether a Skype or phone interview is needed, who to interview, and who to accept. 

* Notes: Before our candidates come to you, all of them will have to go through a Skype interview with one of  our Program Coordinators as part of our process.

Pre-departure

After choosing the candidate you are most happy with, it’s time to get excited about welcoming them to your team. Prior to your intern’s departure for Vietnam, we will send you a formal partnership agreement which details the internship description as well as the roles and responsibilities of every party involved, including your organization, the intern and ABROADER. During this phase, we will also support the intern in arranging all logistics necessary for them to arrive and live in Vietnam, including visa, accommodation, travel insurance, booking flights, etc.

Hosting

Once the intern has arrived in Vietnam, we will pick them up from the airport, drop them off at their accommodation, provide them with an on-site orientation which includes professional, cultural and social training before handing them to you for an official induction at your organization. Throughout the internship, your job is to guide, support and provide the intern with continual evaluation of their performance and progress. We will remain in close contact with you to support and take your stress away whenever problems arise. As for the intern, we will be providing them with 24/7 support to make sure that they are safe and able to fully focus on the internship.

We highly appreciate the efforts of these awesome students who were just launching their career. We also think highly of ABROADER's work for providing us the fitting individuals that really contributed to our company's growth.”

We hosted 3 Singaporean students in our testing lab. Their main tasks are helping with our lab services team, conducting experiments on food, air and water samples. We also helped in one of our research with literature review. Since only part of our team speak English, there was a language barrier, but the students manage to overcome through body languages and Google Translation. They also bonded with our staff by going for lunch together. Overall, they are good students and we hope there will be more such collaborations in the future.

We have benefited from exchanging languages, cultures and work environments. Also from the assignments given to interns, we would use them for our next short and long-term strategic developments.

Great effort by the staff to match the intern with our organization, along with helping the intern to get to know more about Vietnamese culture. I understand the limitation of online platform in implementing programs like this, so kudos to the team for the great transition.

iSEE

LGBT Internship Host ,Ha Noi, Vietnam

Kaoru’s responsibility as an intern at Pan Pacific Hotel was to welcome and farewell the guest and takes care of our Japanese and VIP guest. As a hospitality student, Kaoru has a fair knowledge of the hospitality industry and soft skills necessary for the job like communication, team work, working under pressure. Due to the short duration of internship Kaoru hasn’t been able to keep up with everyone in the team. However, we was very glad to see that she showed profound interest in learning from our advice, training and abide very strictly to the rules of attendance and punctuality. We can say that the biggest strengths she brought to her internship in Vietnam are Team work, Enthusiasm, Hardworking and Punctuality. We would like to thank ABROADER Vietnam for an internship program that is beneficial not only to the intern but also to us as the host organization. We were able to have a more diverse manpower, our staff got to learn about a whole different culture and with Kaoru, our team became multi-cultural making it easier to engage and assist guests.

Pan Pacific Hotel

Hospitality Internship Host ,Hanoi, Vietnam

We have received interns from ABROADER twice since last 2019. Thanks to the students, we could systemize our structure and training documentation. Right now, event management is a growing industry with not many real institutes so the staff might not be 100% trained to their potential. However, these Singaporean interns help us with understand what course of actions should be taken. Even though some students seemed stress at first and became passive, we tried to give them some encouragement and support from all of our team. They've become better and start to progress profoundly. Some designer interns weren't best with their English while we only know English as our main foreign communication, we still managed to break the language barrier together. Moreover, that the interns speak Chinese helped us do business with many Chinese customers.

The interns were splendid that demonstrate high quality assistance with fresh perspective that help our business to understand more about foreign culture and working styles. They also exhibit good data collection and analytical skills that we see as professional. We hope that through their internship at our agency, they would be inspired to create great projects of their own that is imaginative and practical.

Digipencil MVV

Digital Media & Graphic Design Internship Host ,HCMC, Vietnam

I worked with Ain, an environmental sciences student from Singapore for 5 months. Ain had left a lasting impression on our team, standing out for her work ethics and friendliness. She never missed a deadline and always asked for more ways she can help. During her time, she had contributed to 2 of our projects working on efficient and affordable ways to collect floating trash in the coastal area of Northern Vietnam. She also joined our onsite trip to Nam Dinh to conduct experiments and surveys with local fishermen. I can see she is passionate about the environment and hope we can work together in the future as she further her career in conservation.

We wish to have more opportunity to collaboration with ABROADER in hosting interns/volunteers in the coming time. However, if it is possible, we would like the internship duration to be longer. ABROADER Vietnam and their staff have provided a valuable support on facilitation process of this program. We are much appreciated their good arrangement and well-facilitation.

SUSTAINABLE RURAL DEVELOPMENT (SRD)

Sustainable Agriculture Internship Host ,Hanoi, Vietnam

We hosted 2 pharmacy polytechnic students from Singapore for 5 months. At first, we did not expect much since they are only year 3 but their performances surprisingly exceeded our expectations. Despite the differences in Vietnam’s medications types and labeling systems to what they were taught in Singapore, their proactiveness and work ethics were able to triumph. They became a major part in our Outpatient unit, performing Picking & Packing, Inventory Management, Transfer of Medications, Dispensing & Counselling. Later on, they also took part in our Inpatients Unit, helping with medications picking for inpatients, and Compounding Unit, helping compounders with materials distilling and equipment preparations. By the end, we were happy with our performances enough that we had them join in our group description discussions and counseling with foreign outpatients. We are confident that they will become good pharmacist in the future.

Pharmacy Internship Host ,Hanoi, Vietnam

I was genuinely surprised on what students could do. Before the program I had my doubt on students, since previously I worked with some Vietnamese students and they did not really have any concrete results after their time here. Thus, I and Mr. Phuong were both blown away by the results of their works. After 8 weeks, they had completed 1 business pitch deck, 2 promotion videos, English translation of our website, 1 article to be featured in Hanoi’s heritage map book and started 3 business leads, including one with the U.S Embassy in Hanoi. We are very thankful for what they have done and hope they can continue working with Vun Art in other ways when they came back.
