We are delighted to partner with the prestigious NSHSS because we value ambition, adventure and an international mindset as well as academic excellence and thinking outside the box.
The Intern Group is the leading provider of international internships and gives young and talented applicants the ability to launch their career and fully immerse themselves in a new culture. Three of our alumni kindly shared their experiences with us:
Luis Rafael Sosa Santiago - 2015 Scholarship Winner, Intern Latin America Alumni
Luis Sosa is the well-deserved winner of The Intern Group’s first scholarship. Luis is studying both Diplomacy and International Relations and Latin American studies at Seton Hall University in South Orange, New Jersey.
“When the last day of my internship arrived, I had a great feeling of satisfaction, for I felt the work I had done was important, well done, and served a purpose. I felt even more satisfaction knowing that my project was useful to the company and the people that would be impacted by it. I left Medellín with many memories, experiences and amazing friends that I will hold on to for many years. As I walked out of the company for the very last time, I felt that I had accomplished my mission. It was not a sad goodbye, because it did not feel like I was leaving anything behind. On the very contrary, I felt that I would need extra luggage to pack all the goodness I had found.”
Brenda Kiggundu - Finance, Intern Madrid Alumna
“This experience has definitely taught me a lot in terms of fast tracking your future career into a global context, building a personal brand and having a major head start in the financial world. There’s no room for adventure and opportunity within your comfort zone so unless you step out of this, then you won't be able to expose yourself to other possibilities.”
Shannon Smith - PR & Marketing, Intern London Alumna
“It’s been an experience that has been absolutely unforgettable. Learning about different cultures, and being able to experience them hands-on is something indescribable. It was a summer where I was never bored and loved every minute. This summer was nothing short of a dream come true, and I only hope that everyone gets a chance to live out their dreams some day.”
