My time spent in London, England was by far the best experience of my life. It provided me with both personal and professional growth, while having the time in my life in another country. I was able to become more independent and become more confident in myself and my abilities. My life post-program has been filled with excitement, with graduating from college and obtaining a new job in the field of social work. Some useful tips I have are to be organized, and communicate effectively, before, during, and after the program. The process of preparing all the necessary documents prior to leaving can be stressful, but is definitely worth it. I enjoyed my time in London so much, that I am looking to make a permanent move there in the next few years. If your on the fence about whether or not to participate in the program, that is completely understandable. However, my advice is to go for it and never look back. You won't regret it!

Global Experiences' Dublin program truly helped make my dreams come true. Since high school, I've wanted to work in a math/technology role at a feature animation studio. However, such positions incredibly competitive and hard to come by, and I had very few contacts within the animation industry. I chose to take part in Global Experiences to improve my chances of gaining work experience that would help me work towards my ideal career.

GE blew me away with their internship placement process. Despite the specificity and rarity of the internship I was hoping to have, GE was patient and persistent during my placement process. I was amazed by the attentiveness of my program advisor and my internship placement coordinator throughout the entire process. I really felt that they were listening to me and trying to do their best for me.

In the end, I couldn't have been happier with my internship. GE ultimately didn't place me in Dublin -- instead, I worked in a beautiful Irish town called Kilkenny -- but their willingness to explore alternative locations in Ireland paid off big time. I was able to do exactly the work I was hoping to do in a successful and renowned studio that I've admired for years.

As a bonus, I got hired permanently after my internship! Because of Global Experiences' exceptional program, I was able to break into an intensely competitive industry and have the kind of job that I thought I'd be lucky to have five years from now. If you have very particular professional ambitions, GE is a great way to start building the career you want most.

I was searching for an experience where I could learn something while i'm travelling and then I found Global experiences. They were very supportive right from the start. I got an internship in the field I wanted and learnt many new things about business and machine learning. I would love to do it again (if I were rich :P) The GE social events gave us a chance to interact with all the other interns and know about them and their experiences. The program advisors were very supportive and friendly. They made sure we were comfortable from the day we stepped in Dublin till the day we left. Carolina, our location coordinator planned small trips on weekends so that we don't have to be stressed about where to go and how. I would definitely recommend this to someone who is more interested in exploring their knowledge in their fields while travelling and want to know about different cultures. It's definitely a great opportunity. Yes, I had a wonderful experience and also lifetime friends.

This has been a great experience. Global experience has helped out a lot from beginning to the end. They have helped with resume build up, placement and interview tips. working with the libertarian party was new and very exciting. I have learned so much from the party about campaigning and local government politics. I have walked away from this opportunity with new knowledge and a new outlook on my goals and career. Also meeting the other girls from around the world was a great experience.

Interning with GE has provided me with a lasting experience that will last me a lifetime. I interned with Medland Metropolis, an engineering firm in London. I've gained not only invaluable working experience with my company but also tremendous personal growth. Being so far away from home can be scary at first but I've learned to absolutely love the feeling of independence and being able to do things yourself. Your experience is what you make of it and I've learned that some of the best experiences I've had has been due to my willingness to try new things.

Before you're able to intern in London, you need to obtain a work visa and London has one of the more complicated processes in doing it. However, GE has provided very thorough and detailed instructions in doing so to make the process as less painful as possible and I'm grateful for that.

Sarah, our location coordinator in London, has been excellent in helping us ease into London in the best way possible and keeping us from developing culture shock. I couldn't have had a better coordinator as she made sure to provide us interns with a very enjoyable time in the city.

Overall, I really enjoyed my time interning for GE. The program has given me so many wonderful opportunities and helped me expand my global network. I've made so many lasting friends while I was here and the enriching culture has provided me so much insight into the world as a whole. I definitely would recommend this type of program to anyone that's even remotely interested.
