In the competitive state of today’s job market, having global work experience could be an advantage for students' prospective careers. 
International internships can be incredibly worthwhile for those who wish to seek success in the global market. While the experience will challenge one's adaptability, the payoff is that you will be able to manage intercultural communication, establish a global network of peers and professionals, develop cultural sensitivity, and new range of skills that are transferrable and useful in the workplace.
