Global Impact Internships
Smeal’s Global Impact Internship program is a partnership between the Career & Corporate Connections Office and Smeal’s International Programs Office and is designed to provide additional opportunities for students to build global awareness. Students can take advantage of this program as well as Smeal’s International Program’s study abroad offerings to enhance their education through a valuable international experience.
The Global Impact Internship program consists of four areas of opportunities to fit student needs:
US based companies:
Companies hire students initially for US based internships, but have opportunities to apply within the organization for international opportunities.
Third party providers:
Fee based services which place students with companies that fit the students interests and skills.
Non-Profit International Internships:
Non-Profit organizations seeking business students for efforts in developing countries
Non-Profit Internships in Washington DC:
Opportunities for students who may want to work for an international organization, but may not be quite ready to take the step to work in the developing world
All of these opportunities will be posted in the SmealConnect system beginning September of 2010 with organization descriptions and application instructions. On your account home page, click the International Internships (Global Impact) button on the right-hand side.
