UO is proud to announce a new service to connect UO students to career-enhancing, credit-bearing, personally rewarding international internships.
Internships are crucial to a rich, challenging, rewarding 21st century education. It’s no longer enough to sit in class and take in information via lecture or group project format.
Students need hands on learning experiences that prepare them for the workforce. And for UO grads, coming from a state where 1 in 4 jobs are linked to international trade, that workforce is global: our best job prospects are with firms and organizations that span the Pacific and the globe.
The new GlobalWorks Internship Program links students to these opportunities.
