Fall Internship in Dublin

I thoroughly enjoyed my time in Dublin. I felt like my program was very accommodating to me as anything that I asked for was given to me without complaint. My overall experience in Dublin was great as it is a very fun city with a rich culture and long history. I felt like the people in my program were for the most part extremely friendly and open minded. I never once felt lonely or like I didn't have any one to rely on but myself.

My internship was great as I felt like it gave me the experience that is needed in my career to find a good job. I feel very proud to present my resume with my internship on it. I got to do things that I would have never been able to do as an intern in the U.S. Things like, speaking on talk shows and reading the news live on air. I really enjoyed it thoroughly as I met friends and contacts that I believe have the potential to last a life time.

Global experiences was great to me in a way that I could not have previously imagined. I was originally enrolled in their summer internship program but due to a severe family emergency I had to cancel and fly home. However I really wanted to have an opportunity to go back to Dublin and I was able to do so thanks to GE's staff accommodating me so well. I feel that I would recommend Global Experiences to any one.

Fashion Blogger in Milan

My experience has been amazing!
Nothing really about the internship that I didn't enjoy. If anything it was more like certain types of blog posts were less fun than others, but that's the same with any job. Writer's block was an obstacle for me when I wasn't terribly inspired by the project and I really had to kick myself in the pants sometimes to just get it done!
As for the Global Experiences parts of the internship I loved the outings, big surprise huh? Having Eleonora as our overseer was amazing, she's the best! Friend, tour guide (because she knows alot about the places we go!), guardian angel. We were lucky to have her, she's very sweet and kind and it was great knowing if we needed something or had questions she would be very prompt with her responses.
The schooling sadly did little for me, maybe it was just my learning style didn't fit but I regret not using that two weeks to just travel. The instructors themselves were very friendly though.
Another thing, the metro card, guys this saves us so much hassel! Never get rid of this! Ever!
Talking about my internship:
When I arrived and began working with my supervisor, a fashion blogger, we jumped right in to things. She had me up an running with all the log in's for her email, wordpress, pinterest, twitter, and instagram in the first few days and by the end of the first week I was keeping her calendar, reasearching trends, writing blog posts and going along for outfit pickups and events. I also helped her shoot a look book for a designer she was consulting for which was pretty cool.
Fashion week itself was a different kind of schedule altogether. Before fashion week it's all about the prep work like picking up fashion week outfits from press rooms, writing about what trends we will see in the show as well as keeping up the everyday work like shooting and writing about different outfits. We also try and lay out a tentitive scheduale as best we can before fashion week with the events and shows we know about before all the last minute (like 'day of' last minute) emails come in and we are scrambling to make sure they all make it on the calendar. Then it's a week of running to this show or that event, fighting for a seat amongst the seasoned fashion week photographers, and hagling with security. Exchanging pleasantries with PR, picking up press releases and goodie bags and doing all this while constantly updating twitter and instagram stories from every event you go to along the way.
After fashion week everything slows nearly to a halt for about a day or two, while we catch a breather, doing clean up work like retrning borrowed designer peices and organizing the million goodie bags with product and press releases. Then things in the writing sector take off and, because we now have so much material to work with our topic pile is overflowing, the blog post frenzy begins. So it may seem quieter because no, you aren't running around hopping on and off public transport til 8,9,10 at night, you are technically staying in but you're staying in because you have several hours, days of writing that needs to be done haha!
Working with this supervisor there's a role you don't find in a lot of work environments, she really wants you to be soaking in a learning as much as possible. It is actually a must for her, as oppossed to a lot of places where it is more 'here's the work you have done by this time, oh and hopefully it will help you learn something'. No she wants you to understand what you are doing, the reason and purpose behind doing it and how to do it well.
She also gives you a lot of independence, if you have a list of events to go to, you go on your own a lot of the time, and unless told otherwise you pretty much decide which order to go to them and when. You're job is just to make sure you make it to all of them and do the job right. So an important role here is to really keep yourself on task.
Patience, perhaps stemmed from years of retail work, has helped tremendously in this line of work and in a new country. Patience with the people, patience with the public transportation system that has an agenda of it's own and is at times utterly confusing, or on strike! Patience with those who send last minute emails but fully expect you to attend their event, and those events that don't start on time by like a whole hour. Patience with the workload, and with yourself for not having more of done.
My advice to any intern: Communicate, keep yourself in line and organized and be useful! Because it will all help you in the end!

Great decision!

Going to Barcelona with GE was a great decision! I was able to get hands on experience with a travel company doing content creation for their social media platforms. Although you would think working in a foreign country would be a bit scary, the work culture in Barcelona is far less intimidating and more welcoming than in the United States - a great place for those starting to enter the workforce. During my time in Barcelona I was able to meet locals, improve my Spanish, and learn about the history and culture of such a vibrant city. The international nature of the city means that so many other people are also trying to get involved and make friends so it is very easy to find activities and join in. Our program coordinator Inma had great tips on things to do in the city and how to get involved, she was a wonderful support system. Overall amazing experience, I am so glad I went to Barcelona!

There's no place like Dublin to explore the music scene

I was very pleased to get an internship placement in a field that I was completely unfamiliar with! Taking the dive was the best decision of my life and I had great support from the Global Experiences team along the way to make sure I made the right choices.

As a journalist intern with Hot Press magazine, I was able to immerse myself in the Irish music scene by attending concerts and events to review. I usually had a plus one and could share the experience with my room mates as well!

Landscape Architecture internship in Dublin

I am a senior studying to get my Bachelors of Landscape Architecture, and I'm in the final week of my internship in Dublin. It was extremely difficult for me to find a program that offered either an education abroad or internship abroad experience for my field. My program at my school is extremely small, and my field isn't extremely well known. So when I found out that GE could get me an internship in Landscape Architecture it was an easy decision to make. Overall my experience with GE has been amazing, everyone that I've dealt with has been very understanding of my specific circumstances, helping me to create a payment plan that was outside of the norm because I wasn't going to be able to make the deadline, as well as helping me find counseling resources in my internship location for my anxiety. Any time I had a question or needed advice, somebody from GE was available to offer me help.
As for the internship itself, GE found me a fantastic firm where I was able to intern. They did an amazing job of finding out exactly what I needed in order to get credit, as well as the environment and type of work that I preferred. I have learned so much, and I've developed skills to an extent that I wouldn't have been able to do in my standard classes back home. Taking the time to work in the professional world in my field has been a huge addition to my education, and it's something that I think all students would benefit from.
