International Internships in Web & Graphic Design

A World Endeavors internship in web and graphic design offers the opportunity to learn about the different approaches, techniques, and cultural contexts of design. Interns work with typography, photography, and computer-generated images to create distinctive looks for magazines, ad campaigns, and websites within design firms, marketing agencies, or the design departments of larger companies. Interns work individually or collaborate and support a larger creative team with research and administrative work on a wide range of projects.

WHAT TO EXPECT ON A WEB AND GRAPHIC DESIGN INTERNSHIP

Depending on the internship placement, participants may benefit from prior experience with design software such as Freehand, Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator and with website development applications. Along with creativity and technical skills, a successful intern must have strong communication and listening skills as well as strong observational abilities. This is important because success often depends on the ability to respond to the needs of the company or clients. In addition, living and working abroad can be challenging. Being flexible and adaptable will help you thrive in your internship abroad.

HIGHLIGHTS & BENEFITS

  • The skills learned while living abroad are invaluable in a career where adapting to different clients, projects, and venues is an essential part of any design professional’s job.

Intern Abroad FAQs

Where will I intern?

While some organizations have a list of open internships and place applicants in those positions, we work in the opposite direction. We first learn about you, your interests, goals and experience, and then actively pursue the internship that provides you with experience directly relevant to your future career. 

What will I be doing at my internship?

Our internships are customized to fit each individual’s goals, interests, and skill level. We consider all of these things and then make a placement accordingly. Therefore, we don’t have specific internships “set aside” waiting for people to fill them. We have placed interns in both small and large companies, but due to confidentiality of our host companies and organizations we are not able to provide a list of companies.

If I am accepted into the program, am I guaranteed an internship?

We are confident in our ability to find impactful,  skill-building internships. If you are accepted into our program, we guarantee that we will find you a placement in your first or second choice field.

Do I need to have experience?

We arrange rewarding internship placements for people with all levels of experience. Whether you’re a complete beginner or an expert in your field, a successful experience requires a positive approach and a mind open to learning, growing and strengthening your skills.

Are the internships paid?

We really wish we could offer paid internships, but all of the internships we coordinate are unpaid placements. Paid internships abroad are few and far-between, as they require a different type of visa that is difficult to attain, and they also require sponsorship by the host company, which is quite costly for them. The goal of our program is to provide meaningful, hands-on experience in your specific profession or field of study that will give you a competitive edge in the job market and make you valuable to employers who are globally minded. If you are seeking a placement to help you gain international experience, improve your skills in your field and enhance your resume, our program provides the perfect opportunity.

What companies do you work with?

Our internships are customized to fit each individual’s goals, interests, and skill level. We consider all of these things and then make a placement accordingly. Therefore, we don’t have specific internships “set aside” waiting for people to fill them. We have placed interns in both small and large companies, but due to confidentiality of our host companies and organizations we are not able to provide a list of companies.

Is there a cost to particiate?

We strive to provide immersive, life changing, and professionally rewarding programs for our interns. Our programs are designed as a comprehensive “program” instead of just the internship so that we can provide a full experience for our participants. The program fees we charge include the in-country expenses (housing, insurance, orientation, etc.) and also the dedicated work that goes behind finding a customized, one-of-a-kind, international internship placement.
