I’m always scanning the internship articles in the news (as that’s my job) but I found this interesting feature on Time.com about global internships. How popular are these opportunities getting? I’m definitely asked about these experiences more than I used to be. I find that the conversation is switching from “must study abroad” to “must intern abroad”. Read the article on global internships HERE. Enjoy!
Interning in general is the best thing anyone can do for themselves and their future career. You can experiment on the things you like and don’t like without actually making the commitment with an organization for many years. As an intern, not only do you get to learn basic skills, but you are also challenged mentally and, quite often, physically. And if you do it right, you can build connections that will help you plan out the rest of your life.
