"As a soon to be graduate with the world in lockdown I was contemplating how to gain that initial industry experience."

  Hello! I’m Tegan, a final year Pharmaceutical Science student at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia. I recently completed an internship remotely with Absolute Internship. I intended on travelling and working within Barcelona itself, however, with this no longer possible I began researching other ways to experience the work life balance in an entirely different city.

The majority of students that start their careers right after graduating from university have undertaken at least one internship in their relevant field. We have interviewed three Absolute Internship alumni to find out about their journeys from undertaking their first internship with AI to graduating from university and securing their first full-time job. We are hoping that their success stories inspire you to embark on an internship program or consider only an internship placement in your field of interest!

How Can You Adapt?

Summer is coming to an end but we can all agree that this fall is going to be very different to previous years. Universities and schools might remain closed and classes will most probably be conducted online. Nonetheless, students and recent graduates can still embark on international internship opportunities during the pandemic, and show employers that you're willing to gain professional experience.

An internship is one of the most anticipated parts of your college life. Many students are excited about this journey as it will provide you with experiences that will help you prepare for the real world. Most students would want to take it to the next level and embark an internship abroad. However, this decision entails higher costs to budget for. Can you intern abroad on a budget? Yes.

Investing in an internship abroad means investing in your career while still being a student. Internships abroad will automatically give you the edge in a competitive job market after graduating from college. But... what is the best place to gain this valuable hands-on experience? What are the cities around the globe that offer the best opportunities for YOU? Where are employers looking for talent like yours in your own industry?

This is the time to give. For children. For a change.

At Absolute Internship, our 2020 New Year's resolution is to give back to the education community. After 10 years providing career and travel opportunities abroad, we're fully committed to serving this community. For this reason, we are thrilled to launch a charity initiative during the month of January to raise funds for the Global Fund for Children organization.
