Testimonial From Hugh, FIT Student
Global Experiences offers an award winning career development program for students to earn credit through the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) with an internship abroad experience unlike any other. Global Experiences has been helping university students intern abroad since 2001, and has over 7,000 alumni made up of students just like you.
Less than 1% of recent graduates have international work experience, while the majority will have 2-4 domestic internships. How will you stand out?
An internship abroad proves to employers that you are passionate about your career field, you are open-minded and flexible, and that you are adaptable when working with a diverse group of people. This program provides the chance to combine living abroad and getting out of your comfort zone, with gaining invaluable work experience and something impressive to put on your resume.
