 How I landed my dream job while traveling the world


When recent Western University graduate Amelia Martin applied for our Bali Start Me Up Internship Program, she told us she loved books. So we found her a remote internship with an American/Australian-run book publishing startup.

She was hired after her four-week internship and she’s since worked remotely from Indonesia, Australia, Thailand and Cambodia.
