Students in the Global Virtual Internship Program are busy preparing for next semester. Each student is working with their advisors from the American Institute for Foreign Study (AIFS), based in Costa Rica, England, and Italy, to submit cover letters and resumes and schedule interviews with potential internship supervisors abroad. Some students have interviews as early as this week. Internships that students are interviewing for in Costa Rica include a graphic design internship with an environmental conservation organization, as well as a kinesiology placement with a nursing home providing various services to senior citizens, including physical therapy. Students planning to intern with companies in Italy and England will begin their interview process in the next few weeks. We are looking forward to hearing about this inaugural cohort’s virtual global experiences!
