                                                      “First of all, I thought it was a very good experience for me. It was a resume booster, and will help me land a full time job. The program was really well organized, and I think the pre-screen interview process for interns to get into the program is great. All of the interns were like minded-fun and hard workers.” I was very hesitant at first with the price. Since I'm an international student I knew I needed as much experience as possible so I decided to go. The structure [of the program] was fantastic. At the end of the day, I got a good reference from the supervisor from a large brokerage firm in Manhattan that employers will notice. Then, obviously, there were fun actives involved. We went to a Yankees game, visited the Statue of Liberty, and occasionally we went out for pizza. It was a fabulous group, not too many people, and we all had similar mentalities. It was my first time staying and living in New York City. Living in mid-town was fabulous because there are so many good places to go. It has a little bit of everything for everyone. “I worked for a broker company in mid-Manhattan. It was directly related to my classes and I could pick up on responsibilities easily. I learned a lot and it went just fine. My daily tasks included monitoring and shadowing the stock and bond markets. Our firm was the next party after the New York Stock Exchange floor. Our company did a good job of gathering the meaningful information that the consumers needed. I can use my academic and work knowledge for future jobs now . Since it was a brokerage firm, I thought I would only be doing cold-calls, but I did a lot more than just sales. I did some selling, but it taught me a lot, like how to talk to big players in the market. Of course, I have to talk about Alex [the Location Coordinator]. He was fantastic and he was very friendly. He tried to connect with us, and I think we became good friends. I learned a lot from him like how to communicate with a team, and how to be a leader. It was great that he was there at check-in and gave us all advice on safety and what to do on weekends. At the same time, he told us to work hard and put in as much as possible into the internship.

                                                      “I believe cultural competency is a growing asset in the global market. As technology is heightening and many areas in North America are growing more diverse, opportunities such as the internship provided by Global Experiences allows for one to gain insight on cultural dynamics while achieving practical experience.”

                                                      Our Placement Process

                                                      We excel at matching each intern with the best employer by learning about you and your expectations of your experience abroad. There is not another group or company that does this as well as Global Experiences.

                                                      Finding the career that is right for you is a journey that may last a lifetime. Global Experiences will help you identify your personal and professional interests and skills while affording you an opportunity to apply those in a real world work environment.

                                                      Global Experiences does not place you with just any company, but rather walks you through a comprehensive consultation to understand your academic background, learning and career objectives, language proficiency (where relevant), and whether you are interested primarily in the cultural travel experience or the professional development opportunity. Getting to know you and understanding all of these variables helps Global Experiences identify the internship that will best serve your needs and expectations.

                                                      We work with thousands of employers worldwide covering a broad range of academic and career fields. Once you inquire with Global Experiences, we learn as much about you and convey the types of placements that are available. We are generally able to let you know in our first contact whether you are a good candidate for our program. As we guarantee our internships, Global Experiences will not accept you into the program unless we are confident about finding a suitable placement.

                                                      Once you are accepted into the program and pay your program deposit, Global Experiences will immediately begin formalizing your internship placement. We will work with you to create an effective resume, prepare for an interview, and organize the documentation required to secure your visa. All participants will have access to a portal of pre-departure information that will help prepare you for your Global Experience.
