Internship or Volunteering:

Working abroad has become extremely popular in recent years not only because these exciting assignments represent the experience of a lifetime. Young people are increasingly looking at work abroad options for a number of very practical reasons, which go beyond the obvious fact that working abroad looks good on any CV. Please note that both internships and volunteering are unpaid experiences.
Liden & Denz is one of the first organisations to offer meaningful study and work programmes in Russia. Our aim is to give students a unique insight into the Russian daily life of our times. Although the assignments we offer are all supervised by Liden & Denz, the experience inside our host organisations will be very authentic.

Internship Examples:
a temporary, supervised, practical experience program in which a young person, usually a college or university student, carries out a training experience in a temporary position at a host company.
