Invaluable and Enriching Experience

9/10

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.

London's Calling

10/10

Interning in London was one of the best decisions I've ever made. Global Experiences is a wonder program that guides you throughout the whole process and is there to give support wherever needed. They work very hard to find an internship that fits you best and once they find you one, they help you to nail your interview and get the job. Once in London, you'll grow both professionally and individually throughout your experience. Plus, you get to do a bit of traveling if you wish. Who wouldn't love that?

My internship was at a young people's service that provided support for those that suffer from drug/alcohol problems. I learned so much from my colleagues, I got to apply my degree to real life situations, and make some great new connections. I am so thankful that I took a leap of faith and went to London.

This is definitely a once in a lifetime opportunity that you don't want to miss out on!

Museum Intern

10/10

As an art history and museum fanatic I was absolutely enthralled when I found out I was accepted into Global Experiences London intern program. I had the opportunity to intern at a museum and it helped me determine exactly what I want out of my degree and future job. The staff was phenomenal and I made lasting friendships with my colleagues. As for London, the museum and cultural scene over here is fantastic, theres always a new off-the-beat and track farmers market or clothing market to attend on weekends. The museums are off the chart and they always have new exhibitions going on! The real prize though are your weekends, flying to other countries quickly became a priority of mine which I was so happy to experience. The workers at GE not only let you have your freedom, but they encourage it! It was a jam packed month full of work experience and real world experience too. I wouldn't have done it any other way.

Film and Video Intern in Dublin

10/10

The internship allowed me to make great connections, build confidence in my skill set and expand my knowledge of the global film market. I used all of my technical skills (shooting and editing) and was able to attend film festivals in Cork, Ireland and Sitges, Spain. Global Experiences set up awesome social events and day tours for the interns. I took the opportunity to travel to multiple cities in Spain, England and Ireland while living in Dublin. I wouldn't trade this experience for anything!

How can this program be improved?

Better housing options - although this is more a Dublin thing than something GE can really control

Take advantage of this opportunity!!

9/10

You will learn a lot about yourself in the internship you're assigned to and GE will help you A LOT along the way. You will be provided with two people to contact, check-ins, on-site visits, and if you ever have any questions or complaints, they are more than happy to listen. Also, Ireland has a very down-to-earth vibe so the people here are super friendly and your homesickness will be easily remedied here.

How can this program be improved?

I think internship start dates should begin when it is most convenient for the company. For example, I started mid-September when the roster and intake list was full so I could not do much but to wait another month before I had any clients.
