Intern Abroad HQ has relationships with hundreds of cutting edge organizations around the world who offer internship positions through us. Both our internships abroad and remote internships offer intellectually stimulating work on important real world projects that have been designed to deliver genuine value to both you and the host organization.

We don’t work with large corporations where you’ll just be a number. We believe our interns gain a deeper and richer experience when they work with smaller, more nimble organizations where our interns can be offered higher value work that delivers real impact. So we collaborate with cutting edge tech start-ups, innovative growth companies, impact-led organizations, and other exciting businesses that offer interesting career-enhancing work experience, not just a brand for your resume.

We work closely with each applicant to find exactly the right placement for you, based on your skills, experience, education, and personal interests. Because each placement is highly customized, we can’t identify the exact position we propose for you until you have confirmed your commitment to intern with us by paying your placement fee. However, if you’re in any way dissatisfied with the organization or role we offer you, we’ll work with you until we find an internship that you’re 100% happy with.
