As an intern with CEA, you also have access to our expansive catalog of courses that you can take alongside your internship. Whether you are completing a social justice internship in Buenos Aires or a marketing internship for a start-up in Barcelona, you can continue to make progress toward your academic degree requirements, too.
We're specialists in ensuring you have the opportunity to experience life like a local. From living in apartments located in some of the best parts of each city, to weekly social and cultural activities and unique multi-day excursions throughout your host country, CEA sets you up to make the most of your internship abroad – personally, professionally, and academically.
Set Yourself Apart
Fewer than 1% of college students complete an international internship. And compared to 12,300+ university interns, domestic and global, CEA’s interns demonstrate higher levels of competence in the critical career skills employers are seeking. Equipped with these skills and the elevated access to employment that internships in general will provide, completing a CEA Internship is a compelling way to elevate yourself above the competition.
Overcome the Pitfall of Underemployment
Research has uncovered that workers who are underemployed in their first jobs are “five times more likely to remain so after five years …even at the 10-year mark, three-quarters of workers who were underemployed at year five remained underemployed.” Further, underemployed graduates earn about 27% less than graduates obtaining competitive, college-level jobs.
