It might make sense intuitively… but how do you explain to your parents, your friends, or employers who may seem a little skeptical that a study abroad experience can benefit you in the long run? The Go Overseas team published an article highlighting some aspects of the study/intern abroad experience that can serve you well in terms of looking for a job: http://ow.ly/KNmiJ

Testimonials

Beatrice R., Concordia University of Montreal

I’m sad that 2 months have gone by so fast, but all worth it for the experience I’ve had making new friends and exploring a career field of interest. As an art history and anthropology student from Canada, I had the opportunity to work at the archeological site of Atzompa not far outside of town and even come into close contact with archeological pieces dating back to hundreds of years. I’m really happy to have invested my time with Adelante and working very hard in order to achieve this long-lasting dream. Best luck to all future volunteers and intern takers who decide to come to this beautiful place. Te quiero mucho, Oaxaca!

Megan C., Northeastern University,

The experience was most definitely worthwhile. I gained an understanding of an entire new culture and language – Catalan – and became passionate about a new cause – Catalan independence – that I previously knew nothing about. The experience opened my eyes to how important cultural exchange is, as my interaction with Catalans in Barcelona furthered my understanding of their situation more and more each day. Certainly this learning experience is incomparable to anything I could have gotten in a classroom.
