Going abroad opens you up to new experiences and perspectives that you may never have on campus. Imagine gaining invaluable skills and discovering what you truly want your career to go. An internship abroad has now become a proven experience that will not only make your resume stand out, but bolster your career development.
Through the partnership between Alfred University and Global Experiences, it is even easier for you to fulfill an internship abroad. Take this opportunity to explore the world while learning your professional strengths, learn new skills, and immerse yourself in a different culture through life and work.
I got placed at an awesome advertising agency on a marketing role involved in a lot of brand, client, and product research. My internship placement worked out perfectly and Global experiences know what they're doing when they are matching you up to a company. They always make sure you are receiving everything you are looking for so that it turns into a memorable and growing experience.
Another plus was the events that they put on for the interns. We received a welcome party to meet all the interns, multiple day trips, and an exit orientation at the Shard. I chose Global Experiences to help me along; I definitely think London is amazing and my experience could not have gone any better!

One of the best experiences. This internship was seriously worth every penny. I could have not picked a better location. Dublin is an amazing city with such rich history as well as modern flair. If you are trying to decide the best location, look into Dublin you will not be sorry. The town is fun and safe. I never once felt uneasy or scared. Global Experiences matched me with my DREAM internship. I learned such vital information and skills that will put me above my competition in the real world. Global Experiences is a great program and I could not recommend it more.

I aspire to work in the consulting field and getting on the job experience while crucial to securing a job, is not very easy to find. The staff at Global Experiences was incredibly honest with me during my application process. I was beyond ecstatic when I found out I had secured the position with the such an organization. The experience I gained through working with this company was irreplaceable; I feel much more confident going into my job search now.
