Our program is competitive and each participant that makes it through the selection process works one-on-one with our experienced advising team as they are guided through our award winning career development and prepare for their interview with a customized internship placement matched to their career goals and personal strengths. Our team of advisors have all traveled and lived abroad and are great mentors through the pre-departure process. Global Experiences assists its international interns through the visa process, maintaining close ties with necessary providers and embassies globally. Our interns from abroad are required to travel on the J-1 Visa. Each visa type has its own costs associated.
Once on the ground, interns will join a carefully selected group of successful undergraduate and graduates all looking to make connections and start their career as an intern in NYC. Our on the ground team balances just the right amount of group and individual support through cultural and social programming, networking opportunities, and career development. Our location-based staff live permanently in the city and provide an insider-level connection to the culture, events, what’s hot and what’s not, as well as 24/7 emergency support. During the summer, we have Resident Assistants that join us from our large alumni community and provide mentoring and pastoral care throughout the program.
