Intern testimonials

Having the opportunity to work as an intern with the marketing and sales department at Fastmedia was not only a remarkable experience, but a perfect step into the world of media and publishing. Even as an intern, I was given key responsibilities in supporting the overall goals of the team and allowed freedom and flexibility in doing so. The cherry on top was the work environment in the sense of teamwork amongst everyone in addition to the friendliness emanated throughout the office from day one.

I’m so grateful to be given such a great opportunity to work at Hong Kong Living! I’ve learnt so much from everyone, and got the chance to try out new things! Not only do I think I contributed to the company, but I feel like I have been learning everyday, and this has made my passion towards journalism stronger than ever!

Once again, thanks for the opportunity. It’s been a great internship and hopefully we’ll get a chance to meet up or work together again.

I gained a lot of knowledge and exposure to how a magazine operates behind the scenes. An intern’s responsibilities are usually limited, but I got to write articles, manage marketing data, and go out and conduct interviews and make promotional videos for the company. Hong Kong Living is only growing bigger and it was exciting to be a part of their team, even for a short a while.

Henry Hsiao

Undergraduate at New York University, USA
I am really glad that I have applied for this internship. It has made such a solid start to my journalism career. Not only was I given opportunities to build a great portfolio of writing and photography, I also gained first-hand knowledge from multiple aspects of a magazine’s operation. Above all, I have developed networks with useful contacts and made good friends with the staff. Trust me, apply for the internship at Hong Kong Living and kickstart your career now.

Graduate of University of New South Wales, Australia

Interning at Hong Kong Living was a valuable learning experience from the get-go. I was assigned articles to write in my first week, with no time wasted on pouring coffee or running errands.
Interns aren’t simply delegated the mundane tasks; in my two-month stint, I wrote cover stories and features, directed a photoshoot, and interviewed CEOs. The whole office is lovely; you get to know everyone, regardless of position or team/department. And of course, the free tastings and media events are the icing on the cake.
