Internships in Korea for English Speakers
Finding internships in Korea for English speakers is no small task. Whether it’s an unpaid or even a paid internship in Korea, if you’re not bilingual then opportunities can be few and far between. That’s where 10 Magazine comes in — If you’ve just graduated or you’re on the hunt for a summer internship in Korea, apply with us!
10 Magazine is the go-to English guide for what’s on and how to have fun in Korea. Based in Seoul, 10 Magazine was the first expat magazine in the country and continues to boast a progressive approach to being the number one source of information for expats in Korea. Specifically, in 2016 we launched Kodexx — the first and only locally owned guide to expat friendly businesses in Korea, complete with ratings and reviews. As well has 10 Magazine and Kodexx, we also publish Chip’s Maps — a guide to Itaewon and surrounding areas.
Get the Leg Up Your Career Needs
Whilst a job in media promises a dynamic and exciting career path, job prospects for many graduates are becoming increasingly sparse. Nurture your media skills, specifically as a writer or photographer, by interning at 10 Magazine. Gain experience across all platforms of journalism whilst sculpting your skills for an increasingly digital market place in areas such as search engine optimization, viral content, and social media advertising — all necessary additions to your toolbox of talent in today’s media landscape!
Unlike internships that render participants little more than an office lackey made to carry out menial tasks, 10 Magazine will throw you in the deep ending, making sure you get real work experience from day one. Interns will come away with a strong repertoire of articles published with their name, as well as the opportunity to promote their own social media channels to our fan base.
Unpaid and paid internships in Korea
10 Magazine offers paid internships in Korea as well as unpaid internships. Unpaid interns can still look forward to remuneration by way of tickets to events, gift certificates for restaurants, and more.
Get the most out of your time in Korea
Korean workplaces are notorious for their high pressure work culture, but at 10 Magazine work life balance during your internship is guaranteed, allowing you to make the most of your sojourn in Korea. What better way to see Korea than by working with a company at the forefront of what’s on and where to go?
Our office is based in the convenient and central location of Seoul’s diverse Itaewon district, an area filled with shops, restaurants, cafes, bars, and hotels. Also, Itaewon is home to a large expat population, which means both short as well as long term share-housing is usually available locally (For listings, check out this Facebook group here!). We can assist interns to find temporary accommodation where necessary.
For those who want to make the most of their time in Korea, free Korean lessons are offered in the same building as our office and 10 Magazine is supportive of those who wish to take time out during business hours to develop their Korean language skills.
All Applicants Welcome
Many internships in Korea for English speakers require at least some basic Korean. At 10 Magazine bilingual applicants are encouraged to apply, however, those with no Korean language skills whatsoever are equally welcome! As an equal opportunity employer, 10 Magazine encourages people of all genders, ages, races, cultural backgrounds and sexual orientations to apply.
