In March 2018 I moved to Tallinn, Estonia to do my internship at Katrium OÜ. An Estonian company that does market research and business support services for customers based in Scandinavia, Russia and the Baltic countries. If you are like me and are having trouble deciding where to do you internship, here are five key reasons why you shouldn’t miss out on the opportunity to live in Estonia:
- Tallinn looks beautiful
Tallinn is a quickly developing and bustling city with an amazing medieval center that is the best preserved medieval center in Europe. The city is littered with many options to do cultural, sport and other activities. Whether it is the weekend or a weekday, there is always something to do and you will never be bored for a moment.
- Estonia is leading the way to our digital future
With the support of the European Union, Estonia started building its e-government program since 1996 with the introduction of e-banking. And henceforth the country rapidly digitalized many aspects of the government, allowing even foreigners to sign up to be a part of the digitalization with their ambitious e-residency program.
- Work in an international environment
Doing an internship abroad is a great opportunity to gain relevant working experience in an international environment, which will help you secure your future dream job. Estonia’s positive reputation abroad will ensure that a work placement here will make a great addition to your resume.
- You will meet the best people in Estonia
Tallinn is a great place for making both local and international friends. It is truly an international city and houses many expats and foreign students. That combined with the city’s excellent night life will guarantee that you will have a great time.
- There are many great countries at your doorstep
Given Estonia’s good position and great infrastructure, it is easy to travel to neighboring countries such as Finland, Latvia, Lithuania and Russia. For example, you could take a ferry from Tallinn to Helsinki in Finland and arrive in only two hours. And finally, over 50% of Estonia is covered in forests. So if you prefer nature over sightseeing in cities, there are many possibilities to do so
