No matter at the undergraduate or graduate level, a student’s first priority at university should be, well, their studies. From lectures and seminars to labs and projects, days are filled with class, homework, library study sessions, research, and tutors with the singular focus of excelling at subject matter. Add in a part-time job or two and some extracurricular activities and there are just not enough hours in the day to add in a professional internship experience!
Consider that after graduation, without an internship, only 43.5% of students got a job offer according to College Recruiter in 2019. Because of this, planning and setting aside the time for an internship during the summer is crucial.
Preparing for a career in an international setting can not only give students the necessary work experience but can provide an added boost to stand out in a sea of resumes. A survey of study abroad alumni showed that 90% landed a job within 6 months of graduation. I like those odds a lot better! According to a NACE (National Association of Colleges and Employers) survey completed in 2019, employers rated the eight most essential career readiness competencies. What this means is that employers value these traits the most when hiring fresh college graduates. These skills are the secret to getting the most out of an internship and landing a job out of college. Like The O’Jays famously sang in their hit 1975 song, “You got to give the people what they want!”
Students should advocate for tasks and projects that will specifically develop and sharpen these tools of the professional toolbox.
Let’s take a look at the four most important competencies that employers look for and how an internship abroad can enhance those skills.
