Loved My Time in Ireland and Interning Abroad

I was able to do an internship aboard through Global Experiences my junior year and the experience was amazing. I was able to travel around Ireland (and the UK), meet some incredible new friends as well as expand my resume through hands-on work experience.

When I returned from my internship in Ireland, and graduated the next summer, I was asked about my internship in every interview I went into. My internship, coupled with some other experience throughout my college experience, helped me land a job after college. I loved being able to experience what life is like outside of college and moving to a new country gave me the confidence to move to a new city after graduating.

The Irish culture is amazing. The people are friendly, the landscapes are awesome and I would go back in a second.

How can this program be improved?
My program faced some hiccups in the housing. We were located outside of the city, but I enjoyed having my own room and LOVED my roommates.

A Summer to Remember

I had always wanted to travel to Ireland growing up. I have never thought that an opportunity would arise for me to have an internship in Dublin. It is the summer that I will never forget! I was able to meet people and gain valuable knowledge that will always be with me. My internship was with a small boutique hotel in Dublin. The people I worked with during that summer not only taught me about working in a hotel, but they also taught me to enjoy every moment. They made my experience at work so much fun! The program helped me realize that Hospitality was what I really wanted to do. There are so many people in the Global Experience group that I will always remember and will always stay in touch with. The internship and friends that I made in Dublin are something that will always be with me!

I would have lived closer in town but that has changed since I was in the program.

Ireland is amazing and my internship complimented my experience

Ireland is where my family heritage lies. I've always wanted to go and interact with the people and see the breathtaking countryside. None of it disappointed. The people of Ireland are truly kind-hearted and generous and the land is something I often think back to fondly. My internship was not the exact placement I'd hoped for. I wanted something geared more towards fine art, but ending up at a wedding and portrait photographer ended up helping me get a part-time job back in the states. So, while I didn't get to be as creative as I'd hoped my boss was very kind and the environment was respectful and educational. I made the best of my situation and used free time at work to educate myself further on photo editing programs. I never had a "bad day" at work. After my relaxing day of work I would have plenty of free time to experience Dublin. My boss was also very understanding of the few days I was late when I got on the wrong bus as well as a couple days I took off when I got a little sick. All in all I enjoyed my program and would definitely do it again if I could.

How can this program be improved?
Many things in the program have changed since my summer in 2010. The housing is now downtown instead of outside the city. There is now a staff member staying in Dublin throughout the program. Also certain partnerships have ended so I feel like now I probably would get the exact internship placement I was wanting, though the one I ended up being placed in was not a disappointment...just different than expected.

Best Summer Ever in Dublin

I interned through Global Experiences over in Dublin for a summer, and it was the best summer of my life. I was a business major, HR specifically, and they hooked me up with an HR consulting firm doing actual training and development for Irish franchises around the city.

After work and on the weekends I got to make amazing friends with the other interns and my coworkers, and we had some truly unique adventures lead by the location rep, who was a Dublin native.

When I got home I had something amazing to put front and center on my resume, and it was the main reason I got a great job out of college.
