My name is Lukas and I am a recent graduate from Aston University (Birmingham, UK). I returned from a 5 month internship placement in Argentina last month, and was less than happy with the agency that organized the experience for me. I paid a lot of money and basically only got an “OK” internship out of it. I did not utilize the other services that were promised as they turned out to be rather useless.
Anyway to get to my point. I decided to do something about the overpriced international internship offerings which seem to dominate the market. However, I only have my own frustration to consider what I would like to change about the current offerings.
Therefore, I would love to know how you guys feel about international internships.
What are you looking for in an agency?
Have you conducted one before?
If you haven’t, why not?
I would really appreciate if you guys could share your experiences with me.
