Connect-123 Internship & Volunteer Programs Reviews
Best experience of my life!
Submitted by Brittany King - - | February 08, 2018
I have always wanted to travel, but after graduating, I also wanted to progress my career as well. That is when I looked into internships abroad and I came across Connect-123. The reviews spoke highly of the program and I was not disappointed. My coordinator was wonderful. She made me feel comfortable being in a new country by myself and provided me with amazing ideas to get the most out of my trip. The placement they found was amazing and the people were so nice and helpful. I learned a lot and gained a lot of experience. I worked at a newspaper and wrote at least five articles every week. It was a very busy two months filled with my internship but also a lot of travel and activities. I visited downtown Dublin many times, went to Kilkenny, Glendalough, Wicklow, Galway, Cliffs of Moher, Belfast and even travelled to Edinburgh, Scotland. Connect-123 provided me with the best experience of my life where I got the chance to travel and gain experience to further my career. This program is the best choice for students interested in an internship abroad.
My Connect 123 journey
Submitted by John Lisella - University of Colorado at Boulder | January 07, 2018
My name is John Lisella and this is my Connect 123 story. I was a 21 year old college student who had just made the difficult decision to discontinue playing Division 1 football at my university due to certain health concerns. I was ready to move forward and leave that chapter of my life behind.
With one semester left in college, it was the first time in my life I felt unprepared to graduate and enter the real world. I was lost, walking through the hallways concerned about my future when a paper on one of our business school bulletin boards caught my eye with the caption “Interested in Traveling Abroad?” After attending the meeting I was introduced to Connect 123.
Connect 123 has opened doors up for me that I never would have thought imaginable. As a young college student who wanted to find himself and experience life away from home, They provided me with an opportunity and memories that will last me a life-time. Not only do they connect you with businesses and organizations that fit your needs and abilities, but they walk through each step and help give you an understanding of the people you will be working with, and what your job entails. I am grateful for my experience working for the Company in Dublin, Ireland, the many friendships and business experiences I was able to take away from my internship.
The thing I am most thankful for that Connect 123 helped me with was developing friendships during that time that will last a lifetime. Through the organization our 2017 summer group in Dublin were some of the most fun courageous and unique people I have ever met in my life. From hiking and exploring the countryside to drinking pints and dancing in the city, I thank Nikki, the Dublin program coordinator, and the team at Connect 123 for allowing myself and many others to experience the time of our lives in Dublin, Ireland.
When I returned to the United States I was able to visit a friend in Washington D.C that I met during my study abroad and I still stay in touch with many of my summer friends on social media. The short and sweet summer trip has inspired me to follow my dreams and that you should always chase your passions. I am currently Coaching American football In Roma, Italy and living with an amazing host family while studying the language. I would not be where I am at today without going to that first abroad meeting when I first learned about Connect 123. They should change the company to “Connect Unlimited” Because truly, your connections and experiences you may receive have unlimited value. Ciao – John Lisella
Internship in Dublin
Submitted by Liz S. - Middlebury College | December 06, 2017
After graduating from high school last June, I decided to take a semester off - which, thanks to Connect-123, ended up being one of the best decisions I've ever made. In Dublin, I was placed into a small television production company, where I pitched ideas, wrote proposals, and worked closely with industry veterans. I lived close to the City Centre, which made exploring Dublin really convenient. And, most of all, I never felt completely on my own - the incredible Dublin program director always made sure everything was going by smoothly. Without Connect-123’s help, none of this would’ve been possible. So, if you’re reading this testimonial and are wondering if this program is really worth it, let me leave you with the following. Intern abroad if you’re interested in honing in on what you’re passionate about, becoming more mature and independent, and/or opening yourself up to new experiences. Connect-123 really does deliver.
An incredible internship experience with Connect-123 in Shanghai
Submitted by George - Georgetown | September 30, 2017
I had an incredible internship experience with Connect-123 in Shanghai. As a finance major student, I was able to leverage the platform Connect-123 provided to work in an elite boutique investment bank. I enjoyed this investment banking internship experience, and the assignments and projects I worked on were both challenging and exciting. I was given a lot of responsibilities in assisting my supervisor in analyzing various industries, and I had the opportunities to attend meetings with top executives from some of the largest companies. I am grateful for this meaningful experience, and it provided me such an important foundation for my future career endeavor. Besides work, Connect-123’s mentors are super friendly and helpful. They provided us guidance on everything we needed and arranged us for lots of fun activities over the course of the internships. I strongly recommend students to leverage this unique internship platform to advance their careers and studies.

I interned for 7 weeks working in Research. 7 weeks felt like 7 days. I had a wonderful time and it was an extremely fruitful experience; I learned so much! Everyone working there was so kind, friendly, and funny and made me feel very welcomed. My last day was a lot more emotional than I ever thought it would be, it was hard saying my goodbyes- a sign of a great experience and even greater people. Dublin is a beautiful city with so much to do and see. Exploring the city and towns nearby was so much fun and I definitely plan on coming back and exploring Ireland even more.
Huge thanks to the Connect 123 team's time & efforts spent answering all my questions and for their patience during the application process. Fun events, hangouts and tours were organized for the C123 members and Nikki gave us suggestions on what to do/where to go during the bank holidays and weekends. She was extremely helpful and checked up on us frequently and was always there to answer any questions we had no matter how silly they were. It’s truly been a wonderful summer. I met awesome people and made great friendships. I'm very thankful for the experience and the memories that came with it! Thank you Connect-123!
