Karlene HorsfieldEngineering Intern | Dublin
My Internship in Ireland this summer was a life-changing experience. Not only did i gain invaluable experience in my field of study, but I met friends from around the world that will last a lifetime and had the opportunity to travel and see so much of the beautiful country while I was there. As I study Geological Engineering, Connect-123 was able to find me an ideal internship position for me: A Geophysical Field Assistant. This internship was unique from many of the internships other students were doing, as the majority of it was spent doing fieldwork in the North-West of Ireland.
However, I was able to spend about 2 weeks in Dublin preparing for this fieldwork, which gave me the opportunity to explore the city, meet other Connect-123 interns, and be immersed in the incredible Irish culture. After this, I headed to the small village of Garrison in Northern Ireland where the rest of my internship would be based out of. Over the time spent here, I became very close with my project instructors and fellow interns – all from different countries or regions. The fieldwork used Geophysics to determine whether the characterization of the earth here would be suitable for Carbon Sequestration in the future. The fieldwork was physically and emotionally demanding, and it rained every day. But I loved every minute of it. After the fieldwork I was taught the procedure of data processing.
Overall, Ireland was undoubtedly one of the most amazing experiences of my life. It was my first independent adventure abroad (which can be intimidating), but Connect-123 always made me feel comfortable and safe throughout my time abroad. I highly recommend any students looking for experience, adventure, and travel to do an internship abroad in Ireland – I promise you won’t be disappointed.

I was born in Dublin many years ago but I was too young to remember. Revisiting Ireland was always a high priority for me because I wanted to connect with that part of my identity. When Drexel University and Connect-123 provided an opportunity to partake in an internship in Dublin, I was quick to take it. During my three months in Dublin, I interned at a small AI/engineering company, whose...

Choosing to intern in a foreign country was a great experience for me. I was able to gain professional experience while having the unique opportunity of meeting people from various cultures and backgrounds. I interned in an engineering lab at UCD. My co-workers were all very diverse. We came from all over the world, but worked together to solve a common problem. This was very valuable for me, as it...

When it came to making plans for my summer, I knew that I wanted an internship and I knew that I wanted the experience of travelling abroad. Connect-123 provided the perfect combination of both. Not only did I learn a lot from my work experience, but I had the best 2 months spent making friends and using every spare moment to explore Dublin city and the entire country of Ireland....

This past summer I had the wonderful opportunity to take part in biomedical research as an internship in Dublin, Ireland. I had previously been to Dublin before in the past and loved my time there, but was truly blessed to be able to fully immerse myself in Irish culture for a whole summer. Whether visiting the Cliffs of Moher, exploring the various local pubs, or lazily relaxing with my fellow...

There’s a fine line many undergraduates like to walk along: traveling and working on something relevant to their major. Most end up doing one or the other. Connect-123 not only makes both possible, but also makes the experience seamless. Yes, you have to fill out a number of papers, but I can’t imagine anybody looking back and thinking, “man, Dublin would’ve been so much cooler if we didn’t have to...

I’ve really enjoyed my time in Dublin with Connect-123. I had the idea a year ago to try and combine an experience abroad with an internship, and I couldn’t be more glad that I did. Connect-123 really helped me along the way, since I had no idea where to start looking for internships in Dublin. They were really quick and efficient in their communication, and they were able to find...

My experience in Dublin is one I will not forget. I met many interesting people, got to see plenty of beautiful sights, and had a chance to participate in one of the most lively and spirited cultures that I know of. I was in Dublin to gain hands on experience machining with a manufacturing company. It was a small company, so I was immediately given the chance to participate in...
