The Intern Group gave me the opportunity to work with a publishing house that got my foot in the door for the career path I want; but it also introduced me to people in my program across the world. I now have connections in Germany, America, Canada, New Zealand, and, of course, Ireland where I interned. I can utilize those connections for professional and travel purposes whether I'm trying to scope out a job in their area or crash on a couch because we're good friends. Getting the experience of working in a different country will give you the extra leg on the competition for a job because it shows your flexibility, courage, and, most of all, your ability to network. I'm so thankful that I got to work with The Intern Group and Columba Books.
