Why Overseas Internship?

  • Successful job candidates who are likely to progress further are those with local knowledge and a global perspective.
  • As the workforce becomes more globalized, having a clear vision with a multicultural perspective will not only improve your competitiveness in the job market, but also your teamwork skills and work performance. From the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), it found that 83% of HR managers cited teamwork as a top quality they want in their employees. In order to be a successful team player, you need strong communication skills. The ability to communicate respectfully and effectively with people from other cultures is a priceless skill. Due to the fact that a majority of students now complete internships during their degrees, the ability to work with international colleagues and navigate a language switch is a valuable transferable skill to have on your CV.




  • If you are capable of adjusting to new challenges, you may be able to stand out from the crowd during the job application screening process.
  • Living and working abroad requires adaptability across a wide range of areas. Many cultural, linguistic, and social differences interns will need to adapt to while they are abroad. There is a huge advantage and a transferable skill on your CV by adapting to these environments and booming .

Global Networking:

  • Almost every job is an opportunity to develop your network and interning abroad will expand your network internationally. Students looking for careers overseas or in multinational companies will especially benefit from this overseas experience.

Personal Growth:

  • Any job comes with its own challenges and offers opportunities for growth and it is becoming significant when you intern abroad as you will encounter new and different obstacles that you would not encounter at home. By overcoming them, you will become more confident and independent. An internship abroad isn't just a memorable experience; it leaves you with practical skills that will help you in the future.
