Through Global Experience I had an incredible internship in Washington DC. Doing an internship with Global Experiences has been the most amazing and rewarding experience. From the initial interview to the visa process and travelling, GE has been there every step of the way, with guidance and the best advice. Moving to a new country for a few months could have been a scary and stressful experience, but with GE they made it so easy and as stress free as possible.
GE listened to my concerns about what I wanted to get out of the experience and found me the most amazing placement with an incredible company that I will have connections with for the rest of my life. I have grown so much both professionally and personally, developing myself in ways that I had not anticipated. I had the most amazing location coordinator who met us at the accommodation and organised events and activities that we could participate in throughout our time in DC and she was always available for advice and help.
Overall this experience was incredible and a great way to travel and experience different cultures, but be able grow professionally and learn new skills at the same time.

How can this program be improved?
Better accommodation is always appreciated

As a university student, the pressure to enter the job market can be quite daunting. Global Experiences made this new experience so much easier as they not only helped to match me with an internship that would put me on my desired career path but also provided assistance during my internship. I had a great summer interning and definitely feel that it has taught me a lot about what to look for in the future. I not only learned many new skills in the workplace but also learnt interview and resume skills and made connections for life.

I could not have been happier with the support I received from Global Experiences during each phase of my internship. GE staff helped me secure an internship that interested me (I worked with a political intelligence organization, fascinating work made doubly so by the D.C. location); they gave me pointers on how to succeed and make the most of the internship; when all was over, they helped me take advantage of time spent by getting letters of recommendation, cementing professional connections, etc. I would easily recommend this program to anyone looking for a fun, productive way of killing a few summer months.

This summer I worked as an Interior Design Intern. My biggest concern going into the program was meeting people, however the program did a great job of organizing social events that allowed us to meet other interns. Our location coordinator, Carmen, was awesome and made sure we all felt comfortable and enjoyed ourselves throughout the experience. My internship was more than amazing and it couldn't have gone any better. At the beginning I was worried I wouldn't have enough time to explore, but by the end of the trip, I felt that I had spent enough time exploring the city and traveling to other countries. My time working and living in London has allowed me to feel more prepared for life after college and has left me with nothing but great memories.

This was a once in a lifetime experience and I’m so grateful I had the chance to do it. The internship itself was definitely my favorite part as the company I was placed at could not have been better suited for me and the people could not have been nicer or more welcoming. I’ve gained such valuable experience and skills and I will definitely keep in touch with all of my colleagues and supervisors.
Another highlight of the summer was all the weekend trips I took to other cities in Europe and around the U.K. I found it so easy to get around London and access other cities from London. The whole experience has made me much more independent and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
All of the program advisors did everything they could to ensure everyone had everything they needed and that they were getting the most out of their internship. I would definitely recommend this program to friends and family and anyone else who is even remotely considering it!
