Internship Experience Shaping My Future
Submitted by Annika Hileman - The Boston Conservatory at Berklee | July 21, 2017
I think the greatest thing my internship was how much I learned. I am studying theater in school and I was looking for an opportunity to get hands on experience with all the aspects of theater. I have a strong interest in directing and technical theater, but coming from the performance side of theater I had little experience with this. I was placed at The London Theatre, a small fringe theater in New Cross. Since is was a small theater, I had the opportunity to learn sound design, light design, casting, producing, and directing. At the end of my time, I got to put on my own production, with a cast I hired and a rehearsal schedule I created. Since everything was so accessible I was able to get a full understanding of what it takes to run a small theater, which got me thinking one day owning and running my own small theater. This is something I never thought I could do, or have the experience necessary to do. I could not be more pleased with how this internship turned out. Thank you to The Intern Group for placing me in a theater where I am doing exactly what I wanted to do! Beyond my job, the accommodations are wonderful. I have my own space, but also a nice shared kitchen where I can cook and hang out with roommates. The other interns in the program are wonderful and I enjoy going to organized meet ups, as well as adventuring out on our own. Getting to live, work, and explore London has been my favorite part of the whole experience. I have made many amazing memories that I could not have made otherwise.
Wonderful experience combines working and traveling

I think the experience I got here really exceed my expectation.
I worked as a finance intern in a pretty big PR firm that has offices around the world. I got responsibilities from the first day and had exposure to various aspects of finance. I got trained on using SAP and have worked on some accounting things like reconciliation, drafting invoices, and billing. I have also done several corporate finance projects like daily cash flow forecast, comparable company analysis, earn-outs breakdown analysis, and analyzing wins and losses of the company in a global perspective.
London is a wonderful city to live except the costs are high. It's convenient to travel both inside and outside of the city. Popular tourists places like Brighton, Bath, Cambridge, and Oxford will just take around one hour train and the public transportation system is quite convenient in London. I always travel outside of London once a week and I even take day offs and went to Munich for four days in one of the weeks.
The other amazing point of this journey is that I made friends from all over the world. I lived in a shared house with six other people. There were people leaving and coming in the house during my two months stay, but I am still able to make really good friends with some of them. Interestingly, almost all the people here are from different countries, so it's always fun to sit in the dining room and chat with them the whole night. I look forward to meeting them again in their countries when I exchange to Europe next year!
As for the improvement, I think the time from application to the time getting the internship is a bit long which makes people feel some insecurity during the process. Students will usually apply for several other openings but the program needs you to pay deposit along the application process making students need to stick with the program along the way. This is kind of risky in my point of view since the cost will be high if you are not satisfied with the internship you get.
Overall, It is really a once in a life time experience!
Amazing abroad experience in Dublin
Submitted by chloe Tullman - University of Delaware | July 21, 2017
I loved this experience! Everyone was incredibly nice and Katlin and Iolanda were always available and happy to help with anything we might have needed. The social aspect of this trip was wonderful as well, and there were always options of things to do with the group. I loved staying at UCD and was very happy with the accommodations. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone!

I have to say that these past six weeks were definitely the best times of my life. Coming from a small town in Arizona I really had no idea what to expect coming to Ireland, but the program coordinators and events made the transition very easy for me. I'm grateful I got to meet so many wonderful people that I will continue to keep in with even after this program is over. The work environment was very laid back , and if you have any questions feel free to confront your boss it because they understand that this is a learning experience for you. Although I did spend a good portion of my time outside of work in Dublin pubs, I advise anyone considering this program to explore the countryside and send it for the lads.

It was awesome and I highly suggest it. Most beautiful place I have ever seen. The rooms are a little awful And the social events only really appeal to drinkers, but it is still worth going. You can definitely get over those two things
