"Amazing experience that changed my life!"

"Global experiences has been fantastic from the beginning of my internship to the end. The application process is very easy for everyone. The thing that sets Global experiences apart to me in this aspect, is their flexibility. They always worked with my schedule and worked towards making the internship around my needs. During the internship, they created a great cultural experience. Even though it was only virtual, I still felt a sense of community with the GE team and other interns. I love GE!!!"

- Alex A., Miami University of Ohio

"Great internship!"

"I first joined the GE program with the intent to intern abroad but due to COVID that obviously couldn't happen. The staff at GE were amazing in helping me to navigate what was happening, find a great and meaningful intern placement despite being virtual, and giving the same educational resources that were originally part of the in-person program. This is a fantastic company that is motivated to help you succeed! If you have the chance, do an internship with Global Experiences. They will always be happy to help and find you an internship and company that fits your personality. There are so many personal and professional experiences that are achieved through GE, I already miss my internship!"

- Kristin M., Valparaiso University

"Adaptability at it's finest!"

"As everyone is well aware, the onslaught of COVID-19 around the world threw everybody's plans aside and left students wondering how they would be able to find real world work experience while being confined to our homes. Thanks to Global Experiences, I was able to secure an internship with a company in Ireland and gain real-life practical skills from home. I had an incredible experience and the employers that Global Experiences work with clearly care about the intern's development and helping us to develop the tools and the skills necessary to succeed in a real-life workplace environment. I can't thank Global Experiences enough for their professionalism and it is incredibly impressive that they were able to bring this entirely new program to life in a matter of months.

I would highly recommend a virtual internship through Global Experiences whether there is still a pandemic going on or not!"

- Jacob R., Massachusetts Maritime Academy

"A great alternative"

"What most impressed me about this program was Global Experiences' ability to adapt to the quickly changing COVID-19 pandemic. Shortly after my in-person program was cancelled, I was excited to receive an email that I would still be able to complete an international internship, even if it was from home. One of their representatives helped me find a new internship opportunity that was work-from-home friendly, and many team members worked together to create orientation events and presentations before my internship even started. I appreciated Global Experiences' flexibility because it allowed me to gain valuable work experience rather than letting my summer be a waste because of the global pandemic. This program is great alternative to traditional experiences for a variety of reasons, including the elimination of travel expenses and the flexibility of working remotely."

- Anna T., Texas A&M University

Are The Benefits Real?

Yes, they are! The Institute of International Education (IIE) recently produced a report titled, “The Rise of Remote Global Internships,” where they investigated learning outcomes from these unique experiences. Read the report here.

IIE report on virtual internships

Key findings:

  • Virtual internships create the, "opportunity to build a global network, increase cultural awareness, and enhance language skills."
  • Intentionality, motivation, and organization are key attributes of a success virtual intern. In the World Economic Forum Future of Jobs Report (2020), "employers rated critical thinking and analysis, problem-solving, and self-management as the most critical skills for the global workforce."
  • A survey of Global Experiences (2021), employers found that employers scored students' demonstration of the critical thinking competency slightly higher for remote interns (3.7/4) in 202 than they did for the in-person interns (3.5/4) in 2019.
  • A shift to project-based work (rather than task-based work) is a trend in virtual internships, and a positive one, "allowing students to gain in-depth knowledge in a specific subject matter and to work independently," even when time zones vary greatly.
