through connections. unfortunately that’s the only way to get a short-term (summer) internship at anywhere around here. Usually big corporations like samsung (and their ad agency cheil) or LG (HS Ad) regularly hire interns but those are usually for college grads and last 6 months+. for some corporations you have to take a test (I know you have to for Samsung) and the processes are a bit more complicated than just submitting a resume + interview….
Everyone I know who got internships in Korea got them through connections, which is a bit sad if you think about it, but at the same time, if you DO have the connections that’s great for you, I guess.
I know the agency I’m currently working for only hires interns through recommendations and through their junior board program (for which you have to be a korean uni student and the competition is ridic). I can’t say for other companies though, maybe you can try poking places and ask - send emails, call them up, etc. I’ve never had to try that yet.
Not just Korea though, I do know that a lot of the advertising industry has to do with connections, that’s what everyone says and that’s what I’ve seen so far…

Vanilla Unity | Understand
고마워요 이 눈물도 그대가 남겨둔 선물이라서
그 누구도 관심 없는 이 슬픔 속에 하루도 빠짐없이
가득 자리 잡은 그대라서 그래도 참 다행이죠
사라져버린 듯 고장 나 무뎌진 내 맘이
이렇게 지독히 아픈걸 보면 살아 있다는 게
너무나도 분명해졌네요 나도 내가 참 우습고
정말 조금도 나아지지가 않는 게 결국 그럴 수 없을 것만 같아
두려운 마음까진 떨쳐 지지가 않아서
그대로 있죠 이대로 있죠 가만히 모른 척 하고 있죠
결국 나는 그대를 떠날 수 없을 것 같아요
그대 내게 사랑을 말하지 말았어야 해요
damn this message is old but I feel like right now is the perfect time to answer it, haha. it’s going really, really great! my internship at an ad agency is keeping me busy during the week with various things.. highlights from work so far have been getting new phones for 2 of sulli/yoona/seohyun/minho/kyuhyun/siwon (I don’t know which two, though haha. I hope it’s sulli u_u) and actually getting to sit in meetings, which is all very cool :D my work even got me tickets to go see 2NE1, Epik High, Leessang and YB yesterday and I had such a great time!
other than that, I managed to get eaeon’s Guilt-Free limited LP but failed to go see him live (sobs)… andI’ve been trying to either relax or go to shows on weekends. tonight’s The Koxx’ last concert before Sooryun enlists, which is going to be a blast but also a bit sad.
but yeah, sorry for the slow updates and with replying messages, especially… most of the time I’m at work / out or when I’m home I’m too tired to even turn the computer on… I’m not trying to ignore anyone, I’m sorry :(
