Spending my summer with Connect-123 abroad in Ireland was incredibly rewarding. Not only was I able to make lifelong friends that I know I will keep in contact for years to come, but I also was able to learn and thrive in a different work environment, country, and culture where I grew truly independent and wish I never had to leave from. I miss working for the marketing company and I miss living in Dublin. This is definitely something someone should try who wants to study abroad but can’t afford to miss a semester a school. Along with real work experience, I was able to travel all over Ireland and get to know the country and its people like the back of my hand. I was also able to affordably travel outside of Ireland, and see more of Europe and what this part of the world has to offer. Connect-123 has some amazing coordinators too. My program coordinator was also always the biggest help and a friend whenever we needed it most. I can’t wait to plan my trip back to Ireland and revisit the country that gave me not only a once in a lifetime opportunity, but a love for a place other than my own home.

The experience gained from my internship through Connect-123 was invaluable! The skills I developed in Dublin, Ireland were what led to a marketing agency offering me a full-time position. I unreservedly recommend Connect-123 to anyone looking to gain valuable internship experience abroad.

I am a senior at Bucknell University majoring in Global Management with a concentration in Europe. Through Bucknell and Connect-123, I had the opportunity to intern in Dublin, at an organization that helps SMEs who are looking for export opportunities. From the very first day, my supervisor and the staff made me feel like I was at home. They understood I was coming from a different continent and needed to...

I am a senior at Pennsylvania State University with a major in Marketing and Management. This summer I had the honor of working with an incredible NGO as a Marketing and Brand Awareness intern through the support and help from Connect-123. As my spring semester in college was wrapping up fast and also during the global pandemic, I was unsure whether or not to complete the internship experience virtually or...

Traveling alone to live in a foreign country for three months is one of the most terrifying things I have ever done, but also one of the most rewarding. Connect-123’s international internship program has given me an experience like no other, pushing me out of my comfort zone in ways I didn’t even know were possible and learning so much in only a matter of weeks. My digital marketing and...

My name is John Lisella and this is my Connect-123 story. I was a 21 year old college student who had just made the decision to discontinue playing Division 1 football at my university due to health concerns. I was ready to move forward and leave that chapter of my life behind. With one semester left in college, it was the first time in my life I felt unprepared to...

I’ll start of by simply saying… what an experience! I started this crazy journey about 3 months before we actually took off to Dublin, and to be fair, I was a bit leery at first. I knew I would get an internship, but I was unsure how ‘customized’ Connect-123 was going to be able to get. There’s a few programs out there that offer internship abroad programs, but I was...

My experience in Dublin has been incredible. Working in a co-working space has given me the opportunity to know more about local companies and meet people with different areas of expertise. Everyday I learned something new and applied it to the projects at hand. My boss has taught me so much about marketing and the media industry. The more I learned, the more I realize what I truly want to...

I could not have asked for a better experience in Dublin. Connect staff were more than helpful upon arrival. I was placed in a house with a couple other Connect-123 interns along with housemates from all over the world. We all got to learn about each other’s home countries. My housemates were my best friends throughout my stay! Connect-123's Dublin coordinator provided opportunities to meet up with other Connect-123 students...
