International Internship/ Placement watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi guys,

    I've been searching for weeks for an international internship opportunity. I'm currently looking to spend 3/4 months in SE Asia at a business/ NGO. I've got a fair bit of money saved up and i know there are a few agencies that offer internships but they are very expensive. I've sent off my CV and cover letter to loads of companies i've found advertising on LinkedIn. There are some great opportunities from the British Council, however you need to be a student to participate (I'm on a gap year and will start uni in September 2016).

    IF anyone knows a way i can find an internship anywhere abroad, or in fact ways of finding one in the UK (i'm getting a little desperate now haha) please let me know.

    Ok thanks.
