I decided to intern abroad for a couple reasons. First and most importantly, one of the requirements for my degree in International Business is to complete either a semester abroad or an internship abroad.
Due to the fact that I could not leave my job for a whole 4-5 months to do a semester abroad, I chose to go the professional route and picked the internship. Also, I wanted to experience working in a different type of marketing than I already had in order to better form an idea of what I would like my career to be in.
I chose World Internships to help me achieve this because they were the most flexible in terms of the length of the program I wanted, the dates, and the payments. They really adapted to my needs which resulted in a program that was pretty much tailored perfectly for me.
