Less than 1% of recent graduates have international work experience, while the majority will have two to four domestic internships. An internship abroad proves to employers that you are passionate about your field, you are open-minded and flexible, and that you are adaptable when working with a diverse group of people.
This program provides you the chance to combine living abroad and getting out of your comfort zone with gaining invaluable work experience that will make your resume stand out to future employers.
Global Experiences has been sending university students abroad for internships since 2001, and has over 6,000 alumni, including fellow Aggies!

My internship abroad taught me so much more about myself than I ever imagined. I found how independent and bold I really am. I had the best summer of my life so far in Paris, France. And part of what made it so awesome was the challenges I face while here. I would encourage everyone to try something like this for yourself. It doesn't have to be an internship or study abroad in another country. But find something that's going to push you to recognize parts of yourself you never knew. It's totally worth it.

Interning in Dublin allowed me to gain not only valuable work experience, but enjoy of a colorful and caring culture of Ireland itself. From the energetic and friendly tour guides to the supportive and inspiring staff. Dublin welcomed me as one of its own as I explored, stayed, and lived. Apart from the fantastic internship placement, working on the famous Grafton Street allowed me to discover Dublin in a whole new light. Discover Dublin and Ireland at your own risk. A place this great is hardest to leave.

Milan is a beautiful place to live, explore, and cherish, but what makes it an even better experience is attending the program through Global Experiences. I had a fashion internship while abroad and GE worked to their greatest extent to place me in an environment that catered to my specifications. I learned, grew, and was challenged throughout the summer and ultimately gained new insight on the industry and the detailed components of running your own company. Join this program and have the time of your life in Milan. It will grow you, work you, and open up your eyes to all the amazing possibilities that lie ahead. I promise you won't regret a single bit.

My internship has been exceptional not only because it was with the top PR/Marketing firm in the world, Edelman, but also because of the skills and abroad connections I have made. As I near the end of my stay in Barcelona, I think back to everything I have done and experienced, and I can't thank Global Experiences enough for all that they have done. If you are looking for the summer of a lifetime, filled with personal and professional growth, this is the program for you!

Through this trip, I not only gained professional experience that will benefit me in my future career, but I also gained a lot of strength and reminded myself that I can do anything despite being in a wheelchair. Had I not went through with Global Experiences, I would not have seen Harry Potter and The Cursed Child, watched Wimbledon and met the winners of the Mens Wheelchair Doubles, or taken a day trip to see Stonehenge and Bath. For anyone thinking of going through with Global Experiences, do it. You will have an experience of a lifetime.

This was my first internship and I have to say Global experience did an awesome job. The team at GE helped me from start to finish by finding me work and accommodation. I can honestly say that this experience has helped me to grow as an individual and as a young professional entering the work force. Coming to Barcelona I had one goal, live to embrace.

This past summer I interned abroad in Dublin Ireland. I had an amazing experience and I would recommend going though global experiences. They were not only helpful but they truly care about each an every intern making sure that they are having the best experience possible. They check up on you twice throughout the summer that I interned. They even took us on weekend adventures throughout Ireland and Northern Ireland. You also get an advisor who you can always go to. The housing was great with maid service every single day! They teach you your strengths and help guid you to your perfect internship. I love this program and couldn't have asked for a better internship.
