Welcome to Practically Experienced
Whether an undergraduate or graduate, finished with studying or keen to continue, a political scientist or economist, lawyer or gender specialist, graphic designer or language student, work experience and the opportunity to learn more about your field of interest is the best way to get ahead in your studies and career. Practically Experienced is the place to go to help you secure an internship in Indonesia.
Based in South East Asia’s most dynamic and vibrant democracy, as an intern you will be hosted at one of Indonesia’s leading organisations, many of which are in the non-profit sector. Organisations are involved in an array of activities from community strengthening to government monitoring, law reform to economic and political research. All have English speakers so language is not a worry.
Host organisations will be a base from which to grow personally and professionally, learning from the successes and challenges of your host. Benefits of internship include:
- Gaining work experience as an entree into either the non-profit or private sector world;
- Having a unique vantage point from which to see how organisations, particularly civil society organisations, organise themselves, contribute to public policy, develop field programmes, and navigate the environment in which they operate;
- An opportunity to meet, work with and create networks with leading organisations and thinkers;
- Learn or improve your Indonesian language skills in a work environment;
- Experience living and working in a new country and culture.
Practically Experienced will take care of all accommodation and inter-city transportation needs from the moment you touch down in Jakarta for the duration of your internship. Pre-arrival, we will help you with your visa application and provide you with other practical information.
And if you are interested in coming to Indonesia but the organisations participating in this programme do not cover your interests, let us know and we will endeavour to find a host organisation suited to your interests.
