Eastern Europe Internships
College students or graduates may choose to pursue an internship in Eastern Europe.
If you have a special area of expertise (engineering, marketing, or computer programming, for example) and an interest in applying your expertise overseas, consider an internship as an alternative to teaching English or searching for a job independently once you arrive. Internships range in length from a couple of months to a year or more. Often, credit is available through colleges and universities, though you must arrange this well in advance of your departure.
Although internships may be low-paying, they are often used as stepping stones to more permanent, higher-paying positions. It also is more likely that they can be arranged in advance, taking care of any anxieties you might have going abroad without an established job.
