Inside an Irish Internship

Global Experiences | July.19.2016

In June when I arrived in Dublin and started my internship abroad, I started to slowly learn the differences between Irish and American work culture. A typical work day starts between 9-10 for everyone in the office I work in. However the atmosphere is more laid back so no one is really watching the clock for when anyone comes in. Everyone ends their work days at 5:30, unless there’s a Euro game going on, then the office clears out much earlier.

6 Unorthodox but Helpful Packing Tips for Interning Abroad

Global Experiences | June.27.2016

As boarding the plane to Dublin draws closer, packing has been on the brain. If you’re anything like me you have a love/ hate relationship with packing. The excitement of gathering all of your things to put in a suitcase means that you’ll be traveling somewhere new. It means that you're about to have new and exciting adventures. (I hope so at least). However packing also comes with some stress of internal questioning like; how many pairs of pants is too many? Is it necessary to take a blanket and pillow? Do I NEED to take shampoo and conditioner? What if I forget something? What am I ALLOWED to take?... Now everyone will have different internal conflicts inside of their head, and the answers to the abundance of questions you will ask yourself will all be different too. Remember you know about your own unique travels, what clothes make you feel comfortable, what you use on a daily basis. So trust me when I say, TRUST YOURSELF! You are a strong capable packer.

The Study Abroad vs. Intern Abroad Chart

Global Experiences | December.14.2015

If we're traditionally speaking, there’s been no better way for young people to travel all over the world for the past half-century than through Studying Abroad. Almost not even needing an explanation anymore, students can partake in university-sponsored programs, gain credit, live amongst their classmates, and experience a completely new culture for a semester. This was the gateway to the world for a generation of American college students.

Scholarships and Opportunities to Fund your trip Abroad

Global Experiences | December.11.2015

Planning my trip abroad has not only been very exciting but also a learning experience. In the beginning an obstacle I had to overcome was figuring out how I was going to financially support my desire to intern abroad. How am I going to save the money to live in Europe for two months? Searching for an answer to this question I have found an abundance of opportunities available to help me fund my trip. Some of the options that exist to help financially secure your internship abroad include starting a fundraiser/ campaign, reaching out to family, and applying for available scholarships or loans.
