What our Interns are saying:
- Becoming an intern for the Asia Society was a bit unexpected for me-I had heard of the opportunity from a friend who had done it, and hurried to apply quickly before the deadline. The Asia Society surpassed all my narrow preconceptions and has been tremendously eye-opening: I have attended acrimonious conferences on Chinese IP infringement, abstract art exhibitions featuring leading young Asian artists, and film screenings done by innovative Asian-American directors. Moreover, it has allowed me to refine my research skills and learn new technical ones to help the Society in its mission to build greater ties between Asia and the US. Now I want to travel to places like Singapore, Sri Lanka, and Bhutan even more! - Geraint Hughes, 2019 Intern
- In the blink of an eye, I had been with the Asia Society for nearly three months. During this internship, I not only acquired knowledge of U.S.-Asia policy and business, but also made excellent friends. In addition to these achievements, I've learned many skills that I did not have before including data entry, program management, and development skills. For me, working at Asia Society was not only an internship, but also an opportunity for me to learn and grow. This internship helped me complete the transition from student to employee in the context of American culture. - Jiamei Guo, 2019 Intern
- Interning at Asia Society provided me with an opportunity to delve deeper into my area of interest, Sustainability, while at the same time broadening my understanding of the culture and current affairs in Asia on the whole. Through working in the office, I gained insight as to how to conduct research, organize meetings, plan events, and record and analyze data. Asia Society hosts speakers who are experts or leading pioneers in their respective fields. Volunteering at these talks is a great learning and networking experience. - Summer 2018
