The Not So Accidental Tourist -- Internships Abroad.
Holland, Marcie Kirk
It is common knowledge that advances in technology are creating more connections between people and places that previously were considered to be worlds apart. This has significant implications for college students preparing to enter the workforce. Internships abroad can be a valuable means for career exploration, skill development, and creating an international network. Maximizing the benefits of an overseas internship requires extensive planning. College and university professionals can play a valuable role in assisting students with their planning. This paper is written to identify considerations and resources that advisors can share with students as they contemplate interning abroad. (GCP)
