"Interning through Global Experiences has been a unique and rewarding experience. Today, while so many students are studying abroad, there are few who gain practical work experience that Global Experiences offers. As an intern for a tour operator in Florence, I gained experience booking clients in the office as well as leading tours throughout Italy and Europe! This was definitely a once in a lifetime experience that I would recommend to anyone."
"I am now doing an internship not just to learn more about my field and make my resume stand out but also to learn from the way things get done in Italy, and to make even more new friends and to fill my brain instead of my notebooks."
