About International Internships
An international internship boosts your resume, deepens your professional skills, and widens your global perspective. World Endeavors interns experience a life-changing shift in perspective, while also accumulating new skills in their field.
Many students spend hours in the classroom, only to graduate with no practical experience. An international internship, however, can give you the confidence and experience you need to help give you a boost as you pursue your chosen career after college. An international internship stands out on a resume, gives you an edge in a tough job market, and affords you a valuable international perspective, which is attractive to employers. An international internship can also introduce you to different ways of working, giving you more flexibility and patience with diverse points of view as you enter the workforce. And immersion in another country can improve your language skills very quickly, which is important to employers in this global economy.
Finding the Best Fit
The World Endeavors internship placement process is designed to ensure the best fit possible between the intern and their internship. When you apply to intern abroad, your application is reviewed by a program advisor, as well as by our onsite coordinator. Your program advisor will then conduct a phone interview with you to learn more about your objectives for the program. Once you are accepted into the program, your program advisor will work with our onsite coordinator in the country you have chosen to find an internship placement that will be a good fit for your professional goals, language skills, and academic and work experience.
Interns must be 18 years of age or older and have completed high school (or equivalent). World Endeavors’ International Internship program is open to current students, graduates, and professionals.
