Nowadays, it is more likely that Business Schools, or even Universities in general, require their students to complete one or more periods of their academic studies, abroad. Aside from developing global and professional skill sets, getting academic credits, and living in a foreign country, we will name you three more reasons in this blog-post why to do an internship abroad, if you’re still not convinced yet..
- Adding value on your CV and setting yourself apart
In our current saturated job market, it is essential to stand out from other candidates. Gaining experience abroad will help you enhancing your professional skills and improving your CV.
An international internship will differentiate you from other candidates, who will be competing with you in the workforce.
- Develop your global network
As with international friends you will make in a new city, you’ll also cultivate a community of international colleagues and professionals by interning abroad, which will most likely become handy in the future.
- Personal Enrichment
Living abroad is the best way to develop a greater awareness of the world we’re living in and learning about all the different cultures it has to offer. Interning abroad is very different from just travelling.
It means you’re settling in a whole new environment, giving yourself the opportunity to start from scratch, learning a new language, adapting to a different culture and building new relationships.
But aside from that, you will build on your confidence, improve your adaptability and you will surely become independent!
The world has so much to offer – why not take the chance to grow in a foreign place, while gaining professional experience?
