International experience is especially important to those headed into careers in policy, government, and international relations – and a virtual international internship is one of the most affordable ways to gain that global perspective. Working alongside professionals who have dedicated their lives to human rights, policy, immigration, governance, and legal systems, you will gain an insider’s perspective on what it takes to succeed in this critical field. You’ll come away with a deeper understanding of cultures, issues, and systems in a country different from your own, while making an impact on the lives of people in your host organization’s community.
