More than just an internship
Interning abroad not only expands your skills and knowledge of your field, but you will also learn how your field operates in an international context and will gain a whole new perspective while doing so. This experience will set you apart from others in your field and allow you to think more critically of your field.
- Every World Internship program includes pre-departure advising and a welcome orientation once you’re on-site to get you settled into your new environment.
- Early on in your program you will get a guided tour of the city and have the opportunity to participate in various excursions and activities.
- Internships in non-English speaking countries include language instruction to further enrich your cultural experience.
- An international internship will make any résumé look better, but we will make sure of it with our resume polish and career advising designed to help you land that first job after your internship.
Specific details particular to each program can be found under the “What’s Included” section of each program page.
Each job and internship experience that you have will let you learn more about yourself and what you want from a career – perhaps your internship will be in a large company and you will realize that you value having a big office culture, or perhaps you will realize that you work better independently and so a smaller company will be a better fit for you in the long run. While the internships on our program are unpaid, the experience gained will give you the edge you need to negotiate future positions.
