To conclude their bachelors, bachelors or masters, students are required to do internships in business to enrich their professional experience, which is all the more valued when done in a company abroad.
Globalization and current trends are making companies increasingly demanding regarding recruitment.
One or more experiences abroad will make your profile stand out. In this article, we list the 6 most important reasons why to do your internship abroad:
Reason 1: To enhance your CV
By prioritizing the professional aspect, it is essential to cite how an experience abroad can value your CV.
This is a decisive advantage for the student when recruiting. The internship abroad will make him stand out among the other candidates because it will prove to the recruiter your ability to adapt, your curiosity, and your taste for the challenge.
In addition, if you are interested in tourism, trade, languages, or any other sector that operates internationally, this experience will work in your favor at the time of any recruitment.
Reason 2: To enrich your work experience
Doing an internship abroad can enrich multiple professional skills for a student. Immersing oneself in a new working environment abroad will develop critical tools for working life: adaptation, communication, understanding, among others.
By doing an internship outside of their country of residence, the student will be able to discover a new way of working, which will be a helpful experience when they find themselves in a professional environment in the future.
Reason 3: To expand its network internationally
By completing your internship abroad, your personal and professional network will naturally be expanded internationally, an immense asset for your professional career and your future integration in work. It is an excellent opportunity to meet new people, connect with different personalities and make contacts.
Having an international network will allow you to have a wider choice of companies, countries, and backgrounds in which you want to develop your career path in the future.
Reason 4: To discover new countries and cultures
An internship abroad is not only a rewarding experience at a professional level but also a personal one. Taking a trip is the best way to discover the world and fully immerse yourself in a new environment.
Today’s world is a diverse and intercultural world in which we must be tolerant and open-minded to understand and assimilate the differences that surround us. Develop a spirit of tolerance thanks to an experience abroad of great utility in your daily life, personal life, and any professional environment.
Reason 5: To discover, learn and improve a language
Speaking several languages is a significant asset in the world today. Going to a country with a foreign language is the best way to discover, learn, improve and perfect a language. It is essential to fully immerse yourself in the foreign language fully and increase your language level as quickly as possible, both written and oral.
This experience will be helpful for your resume and especially for your job search because recruiters are usually not interested in students who speak only one language.
Reason 6: To enrich personal experience
Traveling alone and staying in a foreign country for a long time is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have as a young person.
Going abroad alone is a great way to become more autonomous and mature. To find oneself alone in another country, to have to express oneself in another language, to adapt to a new social and professional environment, is also to leave one’s comfort zone and face several difficulties that one must overcome autonomously.
Therefore, going to Erasmus + is a rewarding experience both personally and professionally.
