International Internships & Work Abroad

There are two main options to consider when seeking work, an internship, volunteer, or spending a gap year abroad. These include using the assistance of a program or making your own arrangements. When evaluating these options it is important to review several factors including: the fees and costs involved in using the assistance of a program as well as considering the time and persistence it will take for you to make your own arrangements. Discover which option works best for you. Discuss it with a Career Services Center advisor and utilize books from our Career and Internship Library.
