After all, you have been there before, it’s just another company, different building, people, processes and tools but it is still a company in your field of expertise. Now imagine the benefit of adding an international twist to the experience. You will be pushed harder and you will gain more.

You will be pushed to be resourceful in a professional environment abroad, add value to a company from day one, put your coursework to practice, become culturally competent, and build your international network. Your resume will stand out when applying for jobs for you have proven that you can live up to multiple challenges and succeed; you have asserted intelligence, flexibility, perseverance and great people skills.

At the center of each internship program in any of our locations is the professional internship along with supporting services. Your internship program coordinator takes the time for as many consultation-calls as needed to understand your professional, academic and personal goals. We engage in dialogue with you so that we can best match you with a company where we believe you can achieve your goals.

We help you to articulate your goals and strengths and to ensure that your resume and cover letter support you in your endeavor. Once a suitable company gives you the chance to interview, your program coordinator will consult with you on how to best present your skills and motivation.  Reflecting on your personal learning objectives, assessing your development and obtaining feedback from your supervisor will maximize the outcome of your internship. We will support such reflection with assessment requests and engage with you through check-in emails.
