My Internship in Sweden

When going into a new internship (let alone to a new country), one can never be fully prepared, but Global Experiences came very close. They found the perfect match for me at Foodla, a food-tech startup located right in the heart of Stockholm. I did a variety of research, ranging from looking for startup funding, to investigating European agricultural data, to exploring similar companies in English speaking countries. I worked extremely well with my supervisor, which truly made me even more invested in the company. GE also arranged for multiple interviews with my supervisor before the internship even started, to make the transition upon moving to Sweden as smooth and enjoyable as possible. Simply put, I felt like more than just an intern - I was truly experiencing what it was like to live and work in Sweden, and I have GE's efforts to thank for that.

Stockholm Internship

Spending the summer in Stockholm was incredible. It was an unforgettable experience in a beautiful and exciting city all while getting some great work experience at the same time. The start-up culture in Stockholm makes it a pretty unique work environment that you can learn a lot from. Through both my internship and living in a city abroad, I have learned to be more independent and responsible and have felt growth during the program. That being said, Stockholm is a fantastic city that was easy to adapt to. Most people speak English which makes it easy to communicate. The public transportation system is super easy to use. There are plenty of great and diverse food options. The whole city I found to be quite clean and safe. I made great connections with others on the trip and explored the city together. The nightlife and sights around the city never got old. This program was an amazing opportunity in a city with plenty for everyone. I highly recommend this program.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
The time goes by so fast so I would recommend that going into this program you plan out some weekends in advance to make sure you make the most of the time. It's not great when you realize you can't do things during the trip because you didn't plan anything in time.

Internship in Stockholm

Stockholm is a wonderful place to have an internship. It is beautiful, easy to get around with super convenient public transportation, the weather is perfect, great food, fun nightlife and very cool places to go for day trips. But in regards to working Stockholm, this is the place to be. Most people here speak English so its very easy to communicate with people. But is also great to experience a new culture and learn how other people do things in a different country. You can also expand your networking circle and meet so many new people. I have learned so much about myself and the work world from this internship abroad.

Stockholm

Stockholm is the perfect city for an internship, there are a lot of exciting start-ups in the city and other young companies that welcome interns with open arms and make you feel like you belong. No internship placement is perfect, but Global Experience gets as close as possible. I signed up for the journalism program and got to work for a News app where I got to write all day long and drink a lot of free coffee. Stockholm can be a little intimidating at first, but everyone here speaks English and once you learn your way around its super easy. There isn't a large tourism industry in Stockholm, but there are still tons of things to do. The city is full of museums, cafes to discover, and tons of concerts to go to. Our living situation was amazing we got a large spacious apartment that you won’t find in other cities. Global Experience also does a great job of setting up a few day trips which helps you see parts of the city and country you may not have seen on your own. Everyone from Global Experiences was incredible and I can’t imagine a better experience. The only bad part about my internship was leaving.

What would you improve about this program?
I would have liked another month. I learned a lot in eight weeks, but I feel like I could have stayed longer. I was in the first ever Stockholm program for G.E. and I'm sure it will only get better in the upcoming years.

My Stockholm Experience

I never imagined myself working in another country but now that I've had the incredible opportunity to work in both London and Stockholm, I can't picture my life without traveling. Global Experiences makes it possible to not only live in another country but to also gain real work experience. Living and working in places that seem so different from what you are accustomed to really helps you discover who you are as an individual and how you want to grow. I can honestly say that working and living in other countries has shaped me into a better person and even though it might seem intimidating, I highly encourage everyone to take that leap because you will not regret it in the long run.

What would you improve about this program?
I wish there was more "free time". It felt like once we got into our work schedules the days just flew by. I wish I had an extra few days to just be a tourist and experience all the city has to offer.

Stockholm, Sweden Internship

I loved it here in Stockholm, Sweden. The people were a little reserved, and that is why I rated the social scene a 7, but we still had a great time, especially once they opened up to us. My coworkers invited me out to a lot of events, and I think that is what made my internship so extra special. I did get my wallet stolen but got my bank cards mailed overseas in a week, so even when you are in a museum, keep your eyes on your things; I had taken my arm off of my bag for only 10 seconds. I worked on a lengthy research project while I was here, and I liked that I had much time to research and write the report. My supervisors guided me, and I feel like I learned a lot of great skills to take with me through my studies and future career. Everyone speaks English and Swedish, and Swedes are so helpful, so I highly recommend a program here.
