Rise Above with an Internship Abroad

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!

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.

If you could go anywhere, where would you choose?

Can't decide? Don't worry. We still love you. Check as many as you like. Still not sure? That's OK. We would totally have a hard time too. Just check 'I don't know yet'.
