Personal Growth and Development

Working as an intern abroad will push you out of your comfort zone and help you on your way to becoming a young professional. Living and working internationally gives you the life experience necessary to make it in the ‘real’ world.

Cultural Immersion

Working international allows you to culturally immerse yourself abroad. All are invaluable experiences that take you out of your comfort zone but an international internship is more dynamic than simply traveling internationally or studying abroad. An international internship gives you an insight into how locals really live and where they work. By networking with your co-workers you learn what life is like, first-hand.

Interning will give you more exposure than what you are used to in the classroom.
