My experience was very unique and surprising for me. I got to work for an organization assisting the lives of a disadvantaged ethnitcy I had no awareness of. The cultural experience was probably intensified for me because I got an insight on so much more history with my placement. Being immersed in a different culture was already enough to contribute to my professional and personal growth but being exposed to this type of internship allowed me to always think on my toes and assess my strengths and weaknesses. The social activities provided by GE was probably one of my greatest highlights however, from the scenery to the social events I felt like I made a new home in Dublin. The location coordinator was always there when and if I needed her and she always made the events fun and included some extras that pertained to our interests. I even considered living abroad for a longer period and she directed me to the ways how. I felt completely safe in this program but not like I had a baby sitter. Would definitely recommend this program to anyone and even considering it again for myself.

Instead of a visitors leap card purchase an actual leap card with credit on it.

This has been one of the best experiences of my life. The amount of valuable job experience I gained from my host company is more than I would have ever imagined. The company that I was matched with was exactly what I was looking for. My co-workers were great and I was given real responsibility within the company not just typical "intern tasks". I enjoyed going to work each day and then getting to explore the most amazing places every weekend. Ireland is full of beautiful scenery and living in Dublin was ideal as we were close to great restaurants, bars, and shopping. We received just the right amount of support from GE as I always felt supported but never babysat. They also did an incredible job on roommate matching! my roommate and I were always together and had a blast the whole time. This has seriously been the opportunity and adventure of a lifetime and I would recommend it to anybody and everybody!

Griffith college was not an ideal place to live for 3 months. Especially being a recent college graduate, it felt like I was really taking a step backwards living in a dorm.

This was quite honestly one of the best experiences of my life. As a novice traveler, I was nervous to get out of my comfort zone and travel in a way that I was not used to. I feel that I have gained so much in learning how to navigate a large city such as NYC. There were a lot of social events to attend so people who have a hard time getting out of their comfort zone can be pushed, but there was also plenty of time to do some independent traveling too. Global Experiences gives a good balance of letting you be your own person while also giving you support in case you start feeling homesick or uncomfortable. My internship placement could not have been more perfect and I really enjoyed my time both working at my internship and going out with other interns after. Be ready to make lasting relationships both professionally and socially. I would certainly recommend this program!

I think the only cons I had with this program had to do with housing issues, but it wasn't really in Global Experience's control.

This program was the perfect way for me to go abroad after I graduated. I knew I wanted to travel but also use my degree, and GE found me a great internship that strengthened my skills and had me develop skills I only would've gotten from working abroad. The housing was set up very nicely and I always felt safe and answered to when there were any questions or concerned. They offer you free outside activities as well like bike tours, cooking classes and much more to help you experience Italian culture and do things you wouldn't have thought of doing yourself. If you are on the fence about whether this is a good idea for you, you have to go for it! It will push you out of your comfort zone and challenge you to be independent but you will be so thankful for everything you've accomplished thereafter and will come back with lifelong friends and memories and GE made this happen!

I had the most amazing experience in Europe through the Global Experiences program! They found me the most AMAZING internship that I learned SO MUCH from. I loved my placement so much, I made so many lifelong friends and so many connections in the fashion industry. The program definitely will help to excel me in my future career. My resume looks so diverse now and my employer in Milan offered to write me an amazing letter of recommendation. My employer even took me to Paris Fashion Week! I had so much responsibility at my internship. I gained so many skills and learned so much about the fashion world abroad, which I never would have been able to do without the help of Global Experiences. My apartment was conveniently located and we had a grocery store right next to our place. Global Experiences was there to help whenever I had any issues, whether it be with my job or with my life in Milan. They planned a few amazing day trips to different parts off Italy. Overall I had an amazing experience and would definitely reccomend.
