The Benefits of Going Global:

Path Forward 

“I thought about when I was in Spain – I really wanted to speak Spanish but it was really hard for me to practice and learn it because I didn’t have anyone to practice with. And so I thought English Conversation Partners was a great opportunity. Just having that individual [to] speak to, to practice [and] learn, like, colloquial slang.”

Fearless Candidate

"Whether or not your internship ends up being your career, having international experience on your resume shows potential employers that you have the ability to adapt, seek to be challenged, and hold independence as a core value."
