starting salary for grads with internship
Each year, over 1.8 million* talented, ambitious university students graduate and seek employment in a weakening global economy; this translates to more people competing for fewer career-level jobs. As you transition out of university, how will you position yourself to stand out from the crowd and succeed in getting the job you want, when you want it?
CEA’s international internship programs offer unique experiences that extend beyond a traditional domestic internship or study abroad program to provide you with expansive skills that get you noticed. Our extensive network of business, non-profit, and non-governmental organization (NGO) contacts around the world allow us to offer quality internship placements aligned to your needs. Engage in a CEA internship abroad in one of over 10 global locations and rise above your competition!
Aligning your internship placement with your goals is at the core of what we do. CEA’s application process involves a thoughtful pre-planning component, including a one-on-one interview. Our on-site placement coordinator reviews the professional persona you’ve communicated to us through your cover letter and résumé, and works with you to clarify your professional interests, academic needs, and personal goals. Your on-site coordinator and CEA site specialist also share insights into what to expect from your internship. And don’t let language or class requirements hold you back; most internships are available in English and fit into your class schedule. Explore our portfolio of internships and launch one of the most rewarding investments you can make in your future.
A CEA internship is more than just a work placement overseas; CEA internships abroad represent the best of both worlds. Participants benefit from CEA’s years of experience providing exceptional study abroad programming and support, combined with an expert in-country staff who develop internship placements aligned to your needs and connect with you face-to-face throughout your experience. In addition to your internship placement and academic seminar designed to reflect upon and leverage your internship experience, additional benefits include airport pickup, cross-cultural and workplace orientations, housing, social activities, excursions, and 24/7 support. Our job is to set you up for success. Your job is to make the most of this opportunity of a lifetime.
An Unparalleled Experience
Interning for the summer in Dublin has been an unparalleled experience...I’ve especially loved learning secrets about Ireland and the Irish culture from those who have lived and worked there their entire lives. I’ve used this insight to further delve into my internship, socially and professionally.
