Global Experience in Dublin

This past summer I interned abroad in Dublin Ireland. I had an amazing experience and I would recommend going though global experiences. They were not only helpful but they truly care about each an every intern making sure that they are having the best experience possible. They check up on you twice throughout the summer that I interned. They even took us on weekend adventures throughout Ireland and Northern Ireland. You also get an advisor who you can always go to. The housing was great with maid service every single day! They teach you your strengths and help guid you to your perfect internship. I love this program and couldn't have asked for a better internship.

Discovering Dublin

Interning in Dublin allowed me to gain not only valuable work experience, but enjoy of a colorful and caring culture of Ireland itself. Working as a marketing intern at the Irish Whiskey Museum was unforgettable. From the energetic and friendly tour guides to the supportive and inspiring staff. Dublin welcomed me as one of its own as I explored, stayed, and lived. Apart from the fantastic internship placement, working on the famous Grafton Street allowed me to discover Dublin in a whole new light. Music, shopping, and fabulous shopping surround countless blocks in this walk-able city. I could easily find myself relaxing in one of the many parks and then visiting a lively pub on the same street. On the weekends it was easy to travel to farther parts of Ireland and enjoy the breathtaking scenery over the many hills and castle tops. Discover Dublin and Ireland at your own risk. A place this great is hardest to leave.

Ireland: The Hidden Gem of Europe

If it wasn’t for Global Experiences, I would never have had the two of the most life-changing and fulfilling months of my life. This summer was my first time going abroad and I couldn’t have asked for a more charming city to live in or a better equipped team to help me prepare and transition into another culture. Due to the Global Experiences team, I felt fully disclosed and prepared before my arrival to Dublin and while there, felt nothing but support and encouragement.

Global Experiences really made it easy to adjust to life abroad. The staff in Dublin showed us around the city, offered countless dining recommendations, and even took us to get Irish SIM cards the first day. Their efficiency in dealing with the logistics of living abroad helped to alleviate many of my nerves and fears of being across the ocean for the first time. Additionally, the scheduled events throughout the program were always enjoyable and helped all of us in the program get to know each other and the city of Dublin even better. It was evident that Global Experiences wanted every intern to have the best experience possible, and that they did everything in their power to ensure that this happened.

I was first interested in this program after learning about the guaranteed internship, and I was not disappointed as I was placed at an incredible office. My goal for this summer was to learn as much as I possibly could and I can confidently say that I have learned more than I ever thought possible. My boss was so generous and kind and immediately put me to work in the office. I gained invaluable experience as I was entrusted with producing payslips, preparing and filing tax returns with the Office of Revenue Commissioners, and with producing, analyzing, and auditing full company accounts for both Umbrella and Limited Companies. Due to this internship, I am returning to America with a greater understanding of Irish tax and accounting, and with a better understanding of who I am as a businesswoman and person.

Ultimately, eight weeks flew by too quickly; yet, I know that the memories and friends that I have made will last a lifetime. Words cannot even express how grateful I am for Global Experiences for making my first abroad experience so memorable as I could not have asked for a better summer.

How Living on the Emerald Isle Changed my Life

This has been one of the most life-changing summers of my life. Because of this program, I've been able to live in a fresh, new city all summer, make some of the most amazing friends, and work for a company that care about me and is passionate about propelling my career forward. Dublin has been nothing but sweet to me throughout this experience. Whether it be eating lunch in St. Patrick's Park, Hopping on the DART to one of the many beautiful hiking spots along the coast, traveling to different events throughout the city for work, or simply hanging out with friends at a pub, this program has provided nothing short of life-changing experiences.

I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to learn more about their field, themselves, and the world around them. This program provides what I would consider a once-in-a lifetime experience. Dublin is such a vibrant city, filled with live-music, culture, and tons of passionate people. The landscape is filled with historic castles, mountains, and lush green fields. This is definitely a summer I won't soon forget. And best of all, It's an experience that has helped me grow both as a professional and an individual. I'm so happy to have gone on this trip and hope many other students get to experience this wonderful city like I was able to. Thanks Global Experience, for a wonderful summer and an experience of a lifetime.

Interning Abroad-- A Life Changing Experience

I am a strong proponent of the phrase "you never know until you go." Interning abroad allows this phrase to ring true to the highest extent, and Global Experiences is a tremendous help in making it all possible. Global Experiences gave me the opportunity to immerse myself in a brand new culture, live as an independent adult and commute in a city, and make friends and memories that will last a lifetime. Through my administrative theatre internship in Dublin, Ireland, I learned more than I could have ever hoped and made connections that I will keep throughout my professional career. I was also able to attend photoshoots, press events, rehearsals for a brand new dance theatre piece, fundraising parties, and so on... I had the time of my life! Words cannot express how grateful I am for this opportunity.

You should absolutely take the opportunity to intern abroad with the help of Global Experiences. The advisors at GE are kind and passionate about sharing the culture of a foreign city. You will be in wonderful hands!! You truly never know until you go, and I would absolutely recommend taking the plunge and going abroad. Your experience will absolutely change your life.

GO TO DUBLIN

One of the best experiences. This internship was seriously worth every penny. I could have not picked a better location. Dublin is an amazing city with such rich history as well as modern flair. If you are trying to decide the best location, look into Dublin you will not be sorry. The town is fun and safe. I never once felt uneasy or scared. Global Experiences matched me with my DREAM internship. I learned such vital information and skills that will put me above my competition in the real world. Global Experiences is a great program and I could not recommend it more.

Dublin Internship

This was the most amazing experience I could have asked for! The people were so nice - students, supervisors, locals - and I could not have been matched better with my internship! I came into this not knowing where I wanted to go or what I wanted to do afterwards, but by being on my own and figuring out what I like and was interested in, it made me more aware of what I wanted to do for the future and it has made me so excited about it. I could not recommend this experience more, it was amazing!

Dublin Spring '17

Nothing beats the immersive international experience you get while being abroad. Not only does it provide you an opportunity to gain a unique cultural experience but it'll also allow you to acquire new skills and knowledge that are applicable to your future career. Through GE I was able to find two internships that perfectly aligned with my major. As a result, I was able to work on specific research and projects that are related to my field of interest, while also learning to work with a more diverse group of people than I had previously been exposed to. Because of these experiences I obtained, I was able to discover a lot about myself and grow more independently.
GE did a great job planning fun events and a trip outside of work for our group. They were highly supportive and encouraging to get out of our comfort zone to travel and experience new places outside of Dublin. The best part of this whole trip for me personally is being able to travel to different countries in Europe with affordable prices, and GE does a great job giving you tips on the DOs and Don'ts.

Although there are some challenges and barriers to overcome, it was truly an experience of a lifetime.

More than I thought

This experience greatly exceeded my expectations. Interning with a medium-size law firm in Dublin, I quickly integrated in to a wide variety of cases. I was treated as member of the team and allowed to contribute to the work at hand. GE carefully chose the right fit for me and I learned more than I thought possible in three months. Outside of work, the GE planned events were nice and encouraged me to further them by doing things on my own and with new friends. The best thing about GE is the support. From the moment you land til the time you leave, the program director and coordinator are available. Texts and phone calls were always returned quickly. I did not have any challenges while here, but I know that they would have been there to help, if there had been any. I highly recommend GE, without reservation.

How can this program be improved?
Housing. I selected to find accommodation on my own and I'm glad I did. The interns staying in the sponsored housing were not happy with their accommodations.

Internship in Dublin

Studying abroad has always been a goal of mine while being in college. This internship abroad was the perfect opportunity to travel and work in a field that I am so passionate about. GE did a fantastic job at placing me at an internship that met all my needs. I was nervous flying here and living here , but our program coordinators gave us all the information we needed to feel a part of this city. I would recommend this experience to every student. It was eye opening and so much fun! My favorite experience was the day trip to the Cliffs of Moher.

Dublin Spring 2017

My internship in Dublin was one of the best experiences of my life. I came in a month later than everyone, but Global Experience was great with moving things along quickly so that I could get to Dublin. My internship placement was great! I loved everyone I worked with, and the environment I was working in. The commute was only a twenty minute walk from Griffith College where I was living. The accommodation at Griffith College was not the best, but it was bearable. I loved that I was able to travel around and outside of Ireland. I went to a few different countries and several parts of Ireland, and I would recommend future interns take this opportunity to travel. The biggest takeaway from this experience is that it solidified that I want to work in this field of software development. This was my first real job as a front-end developer for a company, and I loved what I was doing. I found it challenging and interesting everyday. I am so grateful that I was able to work abroad through Global Experiences,

How can this program be improved?
The accommodations for living could be improved. I found that the staff at Griffith College was rude.

Fall Internship in Dublin Ireland

My internship in Dublin was fantastic. I was at a great internship and got to meet open minded people who are passionate about travel and learning. From start to finish anything I asked for was accommodated by GE and I was able to relax and have fun because of it. I feel like I grew both personally and professionally as a result of my internship. I would recommend GE to anyone who is looking to study or intern abroad.

Working in Dublin Ireland through the Global Experience Program

I could not be happier with my experience in Dublin Ireland with the Global Experiences Program. Upon arriving I was greeted by my program coordinators who made sure my peers and I were settled in. After exploring the city of Dublin and the country-side for a few days to get comfortable in new surroundings, it was time to start work. I had somewhat of a rocky start, working for a production company in center city. The work environment was foreign to me and I had some trouble adjusting, but my program coordinators helped me through the challenges day-by-day and reassured me that a change in position would be doable if need be. After a few weeks, I began taking charge, and by the end of my internship I was designing, filming, and editing content for a web series. This experience really taught me to trust my intuition. My confidence grew immensely and I've learned not to give up too soon. You never know what you're capable of until you try. Thank you again Global Experiences, you have changed my life forever.

Dublin - Fall

Overall, my experience with Global Experiences was great. From the beginning, the advisors and program coordinators were there every step of the way and very interactive. While in Dublin, the site coordinators were great with organizing group activities and were able to help with any issues that arised. Dublin is a great city for an internship. Griffith College is centrally located, allowing for easy access to city centre and Temple Bar, with most internships being within walking distance.
