International Internships


International InternshipsThe global economy needs global talent, people who understand how to work and communicate in other cultures. Those who stay at home, never testing their comfort zone, have cut themselves off from the astounding possibilities awaiting the global citizen. At ELI, we realize the rewards, both personal and professional, that come from international experience. Our mission is to open the door to the world for you. Europe, Asia, Africa, Latin America: the opportunities are waiting.

We work with organizations and individuals around the world forging relationships and creating an infrastructure that enable our interns to live and work in a secure environment. As our intern, you will have in-country support to ease your way into the local culture, to advise you and help you when the need arises. If you are looking to become a more interesting, well-rounded and experienced candidate as you set out on your career, we can help you towards that goal.

We offer internships in 24 countries, but our widest selection can be found in Ireland, New Zealand and South Africa.
