International Internships

According to Forbes, 93% of employers agree that relevant internship experience is the most important qualification for hiring someone.

Why pursue an international internship? A recent study by Global HR News found that 73% of respondents cited study abroad as important when evaluating the resume of a job candidate for a junior-level position. Another survey found that one out of every two companies would choose a candidate with international experience over another otherwise equally-qualified candidate.

International internships enable students to:

  • Gain deeper cultural immersion
  • Develop cross-cultural communication skills
  • Experience working with professionals in an international environment
  • Participate in intensive practical language training
  • Apply lessons learned in the classroom outside the U.S.
