The Value of Interning Abroad
You should certainly participate in a domestic internship, but that may not be enough to complete in a global economy where companies work with international clients, have global operations, and employ a diverse work forces made up of people from many different cultures.
That is why more students are looking to intern abroad as they seek out opportunities to gain international work experience to complement their domestic internship experience. Interning abroad can be a great alternative to more traditional types of study abroad. They can be shorter, less expensive, easier to work into degree programs, and offer both cultural immersion and work experience into one program. Far fewer students participate in international internships, giving you a unique experience to help you stand out from other graduates.
Since working overseas also presents unique challenges and pushes you outside of your comfort zone, it can also be a great way to grow your soft skills.
Problem solving, communication, taking initiative, self-confidence, and adaptability are just a few of the skills that students who study or intern abroad indicate they gained through participation. The good news is that these skills match the top skills that employers say graduates are lacking when entering their professional careers. Soft skills are sought after because they are harder to teach and are often best developed through experience. Through your international internship program you will experience distinctive learning opportunities and challenges that will give you concrete examples of ways you developed these skills during your program.
