INTERNATIONAL INTERNSHIP INFORMATION
SMART is looking for university students from around the world to join its International Internship Program.
At SMART EcoPark, we aim for visiting children to gain an appreciation and understanding of the diversity the world has to offer. We believe that bringing in student interns of diverse backgrounds provides an opportunity for new international perspectives to be added to the park’s programs and experiences. By contributing your own personal and cultural understandings of the themes explored at SMART—the natural environment, the inner self, and our increasingly globalized world—you will help children experience the world through their visit at the park.
What can I contribute to SMART?
We look forward to interns bringing in fresh ideas and perspectives to the project. Interns’ voices and opinions are highly valued in helping to shape the future of SMART. We expect interns to have the initiative to develop and explore their ideas with the help of our team, and to constantly strive towards innovation and improvement of the park. Above all, we seek students who are passionate and committed to making a difference and creating positive change in the world.
Other expectations include:
Ability to work autonomously in a challenging environment
Curiosity to learn new skills
Willingness to follow direction
Ability to work in a team
Distinct sense of responsibility
Flexibility and patience
