An Internship Abroad: A Life Changing Experience

Global Experiences firmly believes that an international internship experience can be one of the most personally and professionally enriching and rewarding opportunity. We also understand that all parents want to ensure the best for their children and help support and protect them as they navigate their path to adulthood. At Global Experiences we take a very personal approach and see every participant as a unique individual.

 

Our program is designed to take a strengths-based approach that helps each participant find their unqiue strengths and, combined with their interests and academic studies, find a professional experience abroad that will help them find a career they love. We are committed to every student meeting their potential, which we achieve through our intentional and award winning Career Readiness Program.  We are more than just an internship placement company, we are a professional coach and accelerator to help your child make informed decisions about their career path. We provide a personal one-on-one approach that no college or university can provide. Let us help you support your student in their pursuit of an academic internship abroad.

Benefits of Interning Abroad

The face of education 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, U.S. 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.

We have over 6000 alumni of our program who are now using their experience abroad to make more informed choices about their career. In a recent survey we found that 95% of our alumni report feeling more confident and prepared for their professional life due to their participation in our program.

Global Experiences was founded on the idea that an international experience is one of the most rewarding investments in one’s life. Why?

Participants will:

  • Gain full-time work experience in a new environment
  • Build professional and interpersonal skills
  • Increase marketability when starting their career
  • Create lifelong connections around the world
  • Boost self-esteem, confidence, and independence
  • Expand their own perspective and cultural awareness

    Global Experiences did a great job with team building and getting people together. My favorite part of the entire experience was getting to know the other interns on the program and having a sense of community throughout the entire time we were in Dublin.

    I worked with a 10-person marketing team and got a lot of responsibility handling social media marketing and managing accounts. My favorite part was feeling like an Australian and getting to know the whole city of Sydney. The whole experience was awesome. The people were great. I’m glad I did it.
