An overseas internship experience is professional work experience and adventure rolled into one.
Pack your bag with curiosity, openness to other cultures, willingness to learn and an appetite to tackle new challenges. You will come home with a deeper understanding of different workplace cultures, expanded networks, great communication skills and a boosted CV, all leading to that next career step.
In today’s highly globalised world, employers really value those with international experience. It allows for greater cross-cultural understanding, and opens up new avenues of thinking, bringing a fresh perspective into a business.
An international internship will be a transformative experience, highlighting that you are willing to go above and beyond to achieve your goals.
