FAQ

Who can apply?

This program is open for students in high school, diploma, undergrad or master programs, as long as you have the skills and the drive needed to succeed. Fresh graduates and professionals in their sabbatical are also encouraged to apply!

What should I prepare for my application?

In general, you only have to prepare your most updated resume and portfolio of your past work (for those who are applying for engineering & design and content lab positions).

Why do I need a portfolio?

In our experience, portfolio is a better indicator of a candidate's skillsets. Even, to be frank, if you don’t have a good GPA in school, do not worry - you can compensate it with activities or work portfolio that reflect your deep passion about what you are doing! :)

How is the typical selection process?

We will review your application in a few cycles. If we think your profile is interesting, we will invite you for an interview session (we don't wait until application period is closed). Our team will interview you to discuss about who you are as a person, your interest, past work, aspirations - and how exactly we can help you to achieve that! The earlier you apply the better your chances to be accepted. We review applications on a rolling basis and will prioritize those who apply early. Since our capacity to accommodate interns is limited, we might close the application early if we have filled in the roles. So, don’t wait until the last minute!

What is your criteria in selecting the interns?

Apart from your skills set and potential in your respective field, we really consider your fitness in our culture. We will also take a look to how you will be contributing to our team, whether what you have is relevant to what we need.

For us, internship program is not only just a typical program - to get people to help what we are doing. Yes, we will definitely gain benefit from your work. But, above all, we also want to make this working for you. We want to make sure that what will you do at our company is going to be relevant and meaningful for your future career aspiration - either you want to work, continuing school, or to start your own business. Thus, we also see our fitness into your plan.

How long is the program?

The starting date is negotiable. Typically people work for 2-3 months with us. A higher preference will be given to those who are able to take the 3 months-long internship.

What makes this program different than others?

I think if you read this whole page, you know that we take this program very seriously. We don’t need to explain, but yes, we really do! Our team members have interned in numerous companies both here in Indonesia and overseas. We know what kind of program works and what doesn’t, and we want to make this working for you!

If you’re still not convinced, please talk to us at internship@ruangguru.com and we are happy to convince you why you should really consider us - among others!

If I were not in Jakarta, can I join this program?

Yes, anyone anywhere is allowed to apply for this program. However, to gain the full benefit of this program, you need to reside in Jakarta and greater area. We don’t provide accommodation for those who are not from Jakarta, but we are happy to help you find the right one (close to our office yet still affordable).
