Definition:

Internship:  An internship is a period of work experience offered by an organization for a limited period of time, usually undertaken by students or graduates looking to gain relevant skills and experience in a particular field.

Objective:

Accelerate global development by producing exploratory and career-related experiences focused on documented, real-world problem-solving for both the sponsoring organization and the intern.

How GPSx Internships work: 

Engage:  The GPSx internship program is a great way to bring new ideas and global talent into organizations, and for students to explore their careers.

Connect:  We evaluate, then connect globally-minded students to organizations for interview experience and the potential for an internship opportunity.

Empower:  Internship candidates and hiring managers are provided resources for problem-solving and cultural agility training which accelerate development and lead to positive outcomes.

Solve:  Following our proven process, an organization sponsors a problem or opportunity and benefits from our simple 1-page reporting tool leading to measurable, documented results.
