Picture this: You’re a college student sitting in class and you hear about all the fabulous internships your classmates have. Now, it’s your chance to brag because you’re embarking on an 8-week summer internship program in the heart of Tel Aviv with Onward Israel.
Onward Israel does not offer the typical internship – there’s no coffee fetching or copying. Instead, you’re making a real difference in the field of your dreams – high-tech, nonprofit, marketing, finance, and more.
Having an Onward Israel experience on your resume will jump off the page for future employers. Check out these 3 ways that Onward Israel boosts your resume:
1. You’re not afraid to take risks
You jumped on a plane, traveled overseas, and lived like a local for 8 weeks – all while doing work that you love.
2. You’ve got international perspective
Relative to its population, Israel is the largest immigrant-absorbing nation on Earth. As an intern, you’re interacting with people from all over the world, soaking up the culture, and learning about important issues facing Israeli society in a new light.
3. You’re able to adapt
In all career fields, the ability to adapt to a new environment is important. When you’re living abroad, you’re sure to find ways to adjust to Israeli culture – navigating the transportation system, finding the closest market, even learning some new Hebrew phrases.
