Welp, we're here in the new year!
We know that 2020 shook a lot of things up (some of them are still being shook…), but let’s chat about something positive in the future that you can focus on—your career! *crickets* 🦗
What, talking about your future career doesn’t help you Zen out? Let us change that. 🎵 We can show you the wooorld, and give you career expeeerience.🧞
So we know this is semi-obvi but bear with us: Internships are great for your career, and you could be doing one right nowno matter where you are or how many hours you want to work for. While some opportunities may have passed us by in 2020 👎, internships, both virtual and in-person, and part- or full-time, are here to save your semester or summer (👀 at all those options!).
You probably already know that internships give you the real-life work experience to help you figure out what type of work you love, and internships abroad do all of that and more...
Internships abroad give you all the benefits of a regular internship, plus you get to:
⭐ ️ Set yourself apart from other job applicants. Sure, tons of people have had internships, but have they worked in an international capacity before having a full-time job? That’s what we thought. Next bullet please.
🌐️ Intern in a cross-cultural work environment, where you can not only learn a new language (though we've got a ton of placements in English), but see firsthand how workplaces function differently around the world.
💵️ Get a great return on your investment (aka ROI—learn it, love it, use it in an interview) and we didn’t make that up. Our Career Benefits survey proves that studying and interning abroad means:
· higher starting salaries
· jobs secured more quickly (within two to six months!)
· increased tolerance for ambiguity (okay, maybe you already have this one after this past year)
· and more.
🧘♂️ Have something you can rely on (we guarantee you’ll get a placement!) with the flexibility you need right now. With our Virtual Internship Program (VIP), you can intern ‘abroad’ from the comfort of your dorm room, home office, or bed (we won’t judge). And here comes the flex: perhaps VIP is right for you this summer, or an in-person internship abroad works next year or even up to five years after you graduate for select programs—whenever works for you!
The deadline to apply for a virtual internship this summer is quickly approaching on March 15th. But why wait?
