New Zealand offers an emerging global market, a growing global interest, state-of-the-art research and amazing environmental industries with insight to Pacific and Maori culture.
We connect students and recent graduates with customized internships in New Zealand in a variety of career fields and with the option to receive academic credit.
With our network of partner companies which include multinational corporations, emerging start-ups, and NGOs, we connect you to an internship based on your career goals, interests, and past experiences. This means your internship is tailored specifically to you.
A large part of the custom-matching processes involves our one-on-one advising session, pre-departure webinar, and guidance, all of which help you stand out from the crowd and become a competitive applicant.
Our team provides you with professional development resources and support before, during and after your career-building experience so that you are able to maximize your personal and professional development at every stage of your program.
