IES Internships Reviews
Never grow up!
Submitted by Bridget Anderson - Indiana University | November 15, 2016
Before I started my 8 week internship, I didn't really know what to expect. Over those few short weeks, I gained work experience (which has helped me get my current job now), and explored not only all parts of the beautiful Sydney, but also Cairns (the Great Barrier Reef) with my program group! Every night we spent together, either staying in playing drinking games/watching movies, or going out to night clubs and bars - so fun!! We all grew extremely close, and even more than a year later we travel to each others' schools to hang out and catch up (girls flew from Rutgers and TSU to come to IU for Little 500 and for tailgates). The culture of Australia is pretty similar to that of the US so not a crazy culture shock, but learning about the differences first hand was fun. As far as the night class, our teacher was extremely welcoming and made learning fun - he took us on trips around the city and even took us to his home and fed us and we met his family! If you don't know this, Sydney is an amazing city with so much to do/explore and the beaches are beautiful - definitely take surf lessons! Over all, I am extremely grateful for this experience and my I learned that traveling and learning new things never gets old, so if you have the chance, take it and make the most of it!!!
Sydney experience review
Submitted by Brianna Renna - Rutgers University | November 15, 2016
Overall, I had an amazing experience in Sydney. I worked at the Wairoa School in Bondi with special education students. This experience solidified my desire to work with students with disabilities and pursue a graduate education in school psychology. Additionally, I made amazing friends throughout this journey who I still keep in contact with today. I cannot wait to go back to this beautiful country.
Digital marketing in Sydney
Submitted by Kathryn Toth - Indiana University | November 15, 2016
I loved my experience in Sydney, AU. I lived in Kingsford and experienced a multitude of various challenges and learning experiences. I was placed with DOGUE, a high-end pet boutique and grooming franchise. My boss was kind (she decorated my desk for my birthday away from home!) and worked to fully immerse me in both digital marketing and the culture of Sydney. This was a once in a lifetime experience that I'm so thrilled that was able to experience.
Best summer of my life
Submitted by Ivy Bridges - Indiana University | October 08, 2016
Choosing to study abroad with IES Internships was one of the best decisions I have ever made. The IES internships job placement process went well, with the staff in the Chicago office working diligently to find students the perfect placement. As a journalism major, I ended up interning at a luxury lifestyle magazine. The office was small, but this meant I was incredibly involved, publishing content daily and attending a plethora of events - gaining the experience I will need later when I join the workforce. I really enjoyed the class component of the program, which met twice weekly for the 6 credit course. The class helped fine-tune the skills I was learning at my internship placement, and it also deepened my cultural understanding. My professor for my class was excellent, as well as the on-site staff in London. There is no greater city in the world, and working in London was truly the best part. I was immersed fully in the culture by working there, more so than if I had just taken classes. I cannot recommend this program enough if you're looking to study abroad but also want to gain real working experience!
Best summer ever
Submitted by Stephanie Large - American University | October 03, 2016
Getting the opportunity to intern and study in London, England was the greatest experience of my life. I was able to gain experience in my field of interest across the globe as well as make great personal as well as professional connections. The knowledge and skills I gained through my internship experience are so relevant and will stick with me throughout my professional career, and help me stand out in the job world.
IES is one of the best programs that I have ever been a part of. They only have one thing on their mind and it is their students, and making sure they have the best experience ever. The staff is so kind and willing to help students in whatever way that they can. They know the city so well and really go out of there way to pair everyone with a perfect internship for them, and help them to maximize their experience will in London.
The program not only gave me an amazing professional experience, but a personal one as well. I was able to live in London for 2 months, which allowed me to really immerse myself in the city and its culture. I was able to see so many amazing things from Buckingham Palace and the Royal Family to taking a trip to Barcelona Spain. The memories I have from this trip will last a lifetime and the cultural experience I gained will be so useful. I can't thank or praise IES enough for giving me such an amazing experience and going out of their way to make sure all their students have the best time.
