  • Emily Zaycosky - Intern Abroad Assistant Director

    Emily Zaycosky - Intern Abroad Assistant Director

    Emily’s travels began with a semester of study abroad in St. Petersburg, Russia, where she fell in love with the nation’s rich history, and surprisingly, the frigid winter. After graduating, she worked for a few years before becoming part of the Panrimo team. Emily currently spends her work day setting up internships for students all over Europe.

    How did you get connected with Panrimo?

    After I moved back to the U.S. from St. Petersburg, Russia, I found out about Panrimo through the Secuss Listserv. I knew I wanted to be involved in international education after I came back, and it’s a really great resource for those who are already in the field or are looking for a foot in the door. I had originally talked with Panrimo about working for the study abroad team, but once I found I could work for their intern team I was sold.

    How does your own international experience help you in your current role?

    I’ve both studied and worked abroad, and working abroad is a really unique experience. Even though a lot is different when you live in a different country, you still do things like go grocery shopping and commute to work. You’re able to connect with the culture of a country in a really special way when you have the same routine as everyone else. Students are sometimes concerned that they’re going to miss out on living in their host country if they’re working full-time, but really it’s the opposite; that’s the best way to do it!

    What does a normal day of work look like for you?

    Most of my job involves working with our partners who are five to six hours ahead of Eastern time, so my day usually starts around 7 a.m. (noon in the UK, 1 p.m. in Europe) with a big mug of tea. I’ll check in with our partners currently hosting interns, have skype meetings and calls with new partners in our network, and work with our current network to find new opportunities for our students. We also have our student interviews in the morning, so I’ll check in with our partners and students to see how everything went. The European business day ends around noon, so I spend the afternoon working with our intern abroad advisor on preparing student applications to be sent overseas.

    What do you think sets Panrimo internships apart from other internships abroad?

    I can honestly say it’s our partners. I’ve met most of them, and we work with fascinating people who do really exceptional work. Whether it’s the fashion designer who immigrated to London to launch her fashion label or the psychologist who started a school especially for children with Autism, they love what they do and they want to share the experience with their intern. Because of that passion, our interns are involved in meaningful work and gain really valuable work experience.

    How do you ensure individuals are placed with the best internship for their interests and goals in going abroad?

    We really just take the time to get to know the people we work with, both partners and students. As part of our vetting process, we have an initial interview with our students to go over their career goals and what they’re looking to get out of an internship. We also help them put together an international resume that highlights their experience thus far. We also make sure that we know our partners well, to make sure that our interns are going to the right place.

    Taking in the sights in Istanbul, Turkey

    You’ve spent time studying Spanish, Russian, and German. How important are language skills in Panrimo’s internship programs? What language learning opportunities do participants have?

    For us it’s important to send interns who are great communicators and have the flexibility to work in a multilingual setting. Many of our partners speak more than one language in their office, and for many of our interns it’s an adjustment working in that kind of environment. Our interns definitely have the opportunity to exercise their language skills and pick up a new language, but they never have to worry about being in an environment where they’re the only English speaker.

    In your role with Panrimo, how do you ensure host companies benefit as much from the internship as interns do?

    Much like we want to ensure our students are having a meaningful experience, we want to make sure our partners are getting great interns. We know our partners very well, and we make sure we know the kind of intern they need and the type of work the intern will be involved with.

    During our vetting process, we try to make sure that the candidate lines up with what the employers need. We make sure that every intern interviews with their employer as well. We also work with our partners to come up with a structured internship program. That way, the partners decide which projects the intern will work on and the intern knows their goals from the beginning.

    What is the most rewarding part of your job?

    The most rewarding part of my job is seeing what our students can do during their internships. This summer I had the opportunity to meet our interns in Edinburgh and London while they were on their programs. It was my first time meeting students on the ground, and they were all having a blast and doing so well at work. Going abroad takes a lot more effort than people realize, both for us as a provider and for students themselves, and it was so rewarding to see them thriving. It certainly makes me feel like I have the right job!

    Are there any new internship destinations or placements prospective participants should look out for in 2016?

    We’re really excited about our new programs in Dublin, Ireland. We just established a study abroad partnership with American College Dublin this year, and we’re also launching our new internship program as well. We’ve already lined up some really exceptional placements in healthcare and education, and we can’t wait to start sending students over!

    If you could intern abroad with Panrimo, where would you go and what would you do?

    Last summer we starting working with a performance venue in Reykjavik, Iceland, and I would definitely intern with them. We sent an intern there to work with their management team; she spent her summer helping performers prepare for their events, then working the events in the evening. She did everything from sound checks to setting up art installations, and she had the chance to meet so many different people involved in the Reykajvik arts scene. As a music lover and frequent concert-goer, I can’t think of a better way to spend a summer. I also think it would be really fun to try and pick up some Icelandic.
