A great way to distinguish your academic career—and gain a competitive advantage for when it’s time to get a job—is with a college internship abroad. Interning abroad is a great way to broaden your educational horizon, gain fluency in another language and learn how to function in environments that are different than what is familiar to you. Whether you intend to find a job in the public or private sector, being able to work and communicate with cultural fluency and an open mind will be an asset in your future.
As nations, organizations and businesses continue to face challenges and opportunities with a global perspective, the skills you gain working with diverse people and experiencing other cultures as an intern abroad can set you apart as a prized prospect looking ahead to grad school and career options. AIFS college internships abroad include programs in England, Italy, Spain, Costa Rica and South Africa. As a college intern abroad, you’ll experience the benefits of studying abroad and gain a network of international classmates and professional colleagues along with valuable work experience outside of the United States.
