Remote Internships-Biggest Pandemic Success Story in Global Education

Emily Merson | April.05.2021

A little more than a year ago, the Global Experiences team was challenged to move its spring semester global interns from in-person to remote internships.

Many students required credits from the internship to graduate and we worked with hundreds of our partner employers to move to remote supervision to ensure academic continuity.

While we rushed to reorient our participants and partners, I challenged our whole team to work together to build a new virtual internship program from scratch. How could we create a virtual program as successful as on-location programs we had been refining for almost 20 years?

We had no idea at the time what the biggest issues or opportunities would be, and whether the experience would measure up to the benefits of interning abroad, in-person.

Is a Virtual Internship Worth It?

Molly Haskell | December.17.2020

In short, yes.

Internships are essential for university students and recent graduates -- they are the stepping stone from academics to working life. Internships help you take what has been learned in the classroom and put it into practice.

With COVID-19 still among us, internships have taken to the “new normal” and  been fully transformed to be remote work settings.

The remote workplace has become a reality for many, making it a great time to build your resume and gain professional work experience without leaving home!

A virtual internship is worth it for many reasons… it reduces juggling travel uncertainties, it trains students on a new set of digital skills and independence, and most importantly, it provides flexible and convenient professional experience.

Don’t let travel bans stop your career growth!

Meghan Tankersley | December.11.2020

 

When my colleagues asked me to write a blog about the top reasons to intern in Dublin, Ireland, I was flabbergasted. Did people need a reason to want to go to Dublin?
 
I've been obsessed with the Emerald Isle since I was a child, and in 2010 I was able to do an internship in Dublin through Global Experiences that helped me accomplish my dream of living there (and the work experience on resume wasn't too shabby either).
 
Imagine the wind whipping around you as you stand on top of the Cliffs of Moher, or picture yourself in a cozy pub surrounded by new friends with a perfectly poured pint of Guinness in hand.
 
Ireland needs no selling; she’s perfect. But for those who need a little convincing, below are the top nine reasons to intern in Dublin this year:

Jenepher Mackin | October.27.2020

Fall in the United States is often synonymous with children returning to school, college campuses swarming with students, the return of football, Halloween and Thanksgiving.

Fall holds even more weight when the American people elect their next president.

The United States is considered a federal democratic republic in which the people choose elected officials to represent them in the government. Presidential elections are held every four years in years divisible by four, and 2020 just happens to be one of those years. 

While Americans gear up to cast their votes on November 3rd, let’s take a look at what elections and voting look like in other Global Experiences program locations!
