“The undergraduate program gave me the opportunity to gain work experience on a global level by working in 3 different offices around the world which increased my understanding of different cultures… I met so many interesting people, was motivated by challenging projects and learned many new skills working along side the management team of this prospering company.”

“During my six months internship, I have learned to look at the world with different eyes and that has changed my mindset which in turn helps to me think outside my own box….AQ Services has given me a lot of freedom and a lot of responsibility…The projects I managed gave me the opportunity to be involved with other cultures and communicate with many different people from Asia and Australia.”

“The internship here is really international; I’m in touch with a lot of different cultures. For example, my manager is in Singapore, so one part of the team is in Singapore, one part is here in Kuala Lumpur, and we communicate via several different platforms…If you want to embrace a career in international business in the future, and you want to get in touch with a lot of different cultures, you should definitely apply here because this is the place to be for the start of an international career.”

“For me, this was an impeccable learning opportunity and was amazed how much AQ is willing to invest in its employees. Next to providing housing, flight reimbursements and numerous employee activities, AQ provided me with great coaching that gave me the opportunity to develop my skills and qualities…All offices have one thing in common: great people! The different cultures, backgrounds, cultures and beliefs working and socializing together makes it the nice company it is.”

“During my internship at AQ-Services, I learned to work and cooperate with a lot of different nationalities and cultures. This taught me a lot about people and how to approach them. The work gives you a lot of freedom, but at the same time you need to work together to accomplish your tasks.  If you are a team player, who wants responsibilities, and wants to work with different nationalities and cultures this internship is definitely something for you.”

“At AQ, I received a lot of responsibility yet still a lot of freedom on how to approach my work, which helped me to grow professionally. I feel that AQ interns are an important part of the company culture as ideas and feedback of interns are valued and taken into account. I had the opportunity to rotate and work for AQ in three different countries, and thus to experience completely different working environments and to explore different cultures. I felt integrated to AQ’s culturally very diverse team right from the beginning and I really appreciated AQ’s open-minded and flexible company culture.”
