Amber Bates


LOCATION: Prague, Czech Republic

SESSION: Spring 2018

INTERNSHIP FIELD: Marketing & Social Media


Interning abroad in Prague was an extremely positive and impactful experience. As I look back I now realize how unique and special this experience was for me.



BEST PART OF PRAGUE: Getting to know her coworkers


Amber is from Seattle but studies in Ann Arbor, Michigan at the University of Michigan. Amber wanted to take a major step out of her comfort zone and complete an international internship. She was nervous yet excited to try and secure an internship where she could use her communication skills at a fashion related company. Amber initially reached out to a major study abroad provider about interning abroad but found that they had trouble answering her questions and were unorganized. A friend of hers told her how great CEA is and that she should contact CEA about interning abroad. Amber stated that unknowingly at the time she made the best decision in her life to work with CEA. We were very responsive and helped secure a dream internship with a startup organization that was launching a men's fashion subscription service. Amber helped them get up to speed relative to their social media and worked on a direct marketing initiative as well as other special projects. She definitely had an impact on the company because her colleagues were calling her during school asking for assistance on projects. Her internship allowed her to network with fashion organizations from across Europe, attend a Startup Organization conference and most importantly build up her confidence. Amber stated that one of the best parts of the internship program was the seminar course. Her instructor helped her learn practical skills to use in a workplace setting while helping her provide context to what she was experiencing in Prague. As a result of this internship Amber feels that she is more confident, assertive, and flexible.
