International Internships for US and Canadian College Students Still Available for Summer 2010

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - March 16, 2010) -  Why intern in Pittsburgh when you can be in Paris? Or, Boise when you can be in Berlin? Intrax Internships Abroad, specializing in matching talented students with high-profile international internships, is currently accepting applications for their 2010 summer internships program in London, Paris, Barcelona, Madrid, Berlin, and Tokyo. Most internships run from June 14 - August 6, 2010.

Intrax Internships Abroad places top undergraduate and graduate students at multinational and entrepreneurial companies around the world. Representative host companies include Microsoft, PricewaterhouseCoopers, France Telecom, Children without Borders, M&C Saatchi, Morningstar, Deutsche Bahn, Head London, and the United Nations Environmental Program. More than 200 summer internships are available in a variety of fields including advertising, finance, marketing, engineering, public relations, entrepreneurship, web development, non-profits, venture capital, software development, hospitality, publishing and more.

According to Monster.com, employers overwhelmingly point to internship experience as the most important factor they consider in hiring new college graduates for full-time positions. 

"The crowded job market means that good grades are no longer enough to secure the best jobs after graduation," said Terry Cumes, managing director for Intrax Internships Abroad. "Our graduates report that their Intrax internships provide tangible work experience -- while also imparting a life-changing international cultural experience that would be difficult to replicate on their own."

Students gain the cultural immersion of a study abroad experience along with the professional development of a quality internship. Program benefits include coaching and local support, centrally located housing, insurance, global skills training, pre-departure orientation, weekend excursions, and above all a personalized match with an internship. Internships are available in English, French, Spanish, German and Japanese, with many English-language programs offered outside of London. Prices range from $5,000 - $8,000.

The application deadline for 2010 internships is March 31, 2010. Students can submit an application and secure a spot at http://www.intraxinternshipsabroad.com
