“Why should we hire you?”
How would you answer this common interview question?
When you're competing with many other applicants who are just as qualified as you, with the same amount of experience, what will set you apart?
In the increasingly globalized workplace, being the applicant with international work experience gives you an advantage. You’ll be able to bring a unique professional experience and help bridge gaps between cultures and countries.
Less than 3% of U.S. college students participate in a global education experience during their undergraduate degree. Stand out from the crowd.
Summer and semester internships are available.
Why participate on a global internship program?
You’ll have the chance to:
- Build your resume
- Expand your network internationally
- Develop your leadership skills that employers are looking for
- All while having an intercultural experience in a foreign country (or online!)
$2,000 higher starting salary
Research shows that graduates with internship experience have higher starting salaries than graduates without.
My Global Education program exposed me to real-world projects and opportunities to cement my passions for international development. It allowed me to learn from the people central to my work and develop an intercultural, respectful perspective to development practices.Jackson Schiefelbein
