One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of looking at things.
Henry Miller, American author
An international internship can bring invaluable insight to your personal life and professional career. Like any domestic internship, an international internship will add experience and skills to your resume, but it also shows employers that you:
Have a basic knowledge of a foreign language and are able to use it
Have increased cultural sensitivity, flexibility and adaptability
Are confident in your abilities
Are able to work with diverse groups of people in diverse settings
Can address business situations from a different cultural frame of reference
