Student Work Abroad Programs and Paid Summer Internships

Student internship work abroad

U.S. citizens need work permits to work legally in other countries and get paid. The student work abroad, internship, and work exchange programs listed below may be able to help you achieve this goal. Many take place during the summer, when students have finished their studies, and think forward to their careers. Internships are often paid after a small fee to the placement agency, though not all, as the experience working abroad is often invaluable by itself in building your international and personal resume.
