A Day In The Life of A Global Intern: Indonesia


Written by Sarah Hoffman

To continue our series on The Day of A Life of a Global Intern, we give you a peek into a day in Indonesia. If you haven’t had a chance, take a peek at the other global internship locations in the series: Kenya, Thailand, and France. BGU also has internships in closed countries. To learn more about them, you will need to request more information. A-Day-in-the-Life-Indonesia   Here is the full schedule example schedule for a typical day on the Indonesia Global Internship:
