Why Intern Abroad

    Global Experiences firmly believes that any international experience can be personally enriching and rewarding. An internship abroad combines practical work experience with life-changing travel. Our programs blend the tools and career development your child needs for a successful career with the excitement of a semester or summer in a new city that he or she wants. Discover why an internship abroad with Global Experiences can help your child build confidence, professional skills, and cultural awareness.

    Personal Enrichment:

    The face of study abroad is changing and growing to help students adapt to the demands of a competitive economy. According to a study from the Institute of International Education, US student participation in study abroad has more than tripled over the past decade. Students and graduates have more opportunities to study, live, and intern abroad today than ever before. Our company was founded on the idea that an international experience is one of the most rewarding investments in one’s life.

    An internship abroad will help your child increase his or her marketability, create lasting friendships, and build an international network of professionals. Just as importantly, living in a new city can build self-esteem, confidence, and independence. An internship is a great opportunity to gain work experience and working in a new environment enhances those professional skills with attributes of adaptability and self-reliance.

    The Global Experiences Difference:

    Our programs have been tried and tested since 2001, and though we continue to grow and improve our services each year, we have crafted a formula that serves the needs of each intern. Our team’s dedication to our participants is what makes us unique. We are a staff of travelers (Link to team page) who understand and love the challenges of living abroad, and want to share our knowledge and experiences with you. Along with an amazingly steadfast team, we have several differentiating factors that make us unique.
