                                  “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 LOVED London! I originally wanted to go to Florence, but looking at the economy I decided that London was a better fit for what I wanted to do. I knew that London was a city that I could gain some experience personally and professionally-and it was great. I did some traveling to Prague, Florence and Greece too. My internship was great, but it was a lot of work. The experience taught me how to work with different types of personalities and management styles. Along with all of the skills I learned, like I've never created a charity method rating system prior to this point, the experience taught me a lot about myself and how I handle challenges. I learned how to balance daily life and work life too. My advice to future interns: Plan travel as soon as you can and book flights in advance. Don't be afraid to go anywhere alone and don't be nervous to speak up about what you want to get out of the experience."

                                  "I am a 3rd year student majoring in International Business and Finance at Rochester Institute of Technology. This past summer I spent in London doing [an] internship in a banking industry with Global Experiences. It was great, studying different cultures, learning about London and meeting a lot of new people. I always wanted to go [to] London and not just as a tourist, but actually live there and experiencing working and studying. I had the time of my life."
