Intrax Internships Abroad allows college students and recent graduates to immerse themselves in a foreign language, culture and business environment by interning with an international company for the summer.
“As our world becomes more interconnected, employers are insisting on global experience in their work force,” said Joe Roma, director of Intrax Internships Abroad. “Interning abroad is a great way for college students to gain international experience early in their careers, making them ideal candidates for a globally-oriented employer.”
Intrax Internships Abroad matches qualified college students and recent graduates with business-oriented international internships in major economic centers around the world. Representative host companies include Desigual, Digitas, Energizer, Harvard Business Review, Hillgate Public Relations, Lexis Nexis, Microsoft, Mitsubishi Bank, Morningstar, PricewaterhouseCoopers, and Santiago Times. More than 200 summer internships are available in a variety of fields including advertising, finance, marketing, engineering, public relations, entrepreneurship, web development, non-profit, venture capital, software development, hospitality, publishing, and more.
“My Intrax internship abroad experience was the best of both worlds: being able to enjoy a mixture of a study abroad program and a professional internship position,” said Jenna Kossoff, a senior at Ohio State University who interned in Barcelona at Lifestyle Experiences. “An internship abroad allowed me to thrive independently and professionally in a foreign business environment. Not only did I get to utilize and improve my Spanish speaking abilities, but I gained a lot of knowledge about real-world marketing applications in a professional setting.”
Program benefits include coaching and local support, centrally located housing, insurance, global skills training, pre-departure orientation, weekend excursions, and above all, a personalized match with an international internship. Internships are available in English, French, Spanish, German, Mandarin, and Japanese, with many English-language programs offered outside of London. Prices range from $5,000 - $8,000 depending on the internship program and country location.
