One of the best ways to immerse yourself in a foreign culture is to work as an intern. Faculty members at UMKC have worked overseas and are willing to use their professional networks to help you find an overseas internship. The Career Services Office also has resources available to help in your search. Most overseas internships are undertaken for the experience rather than academic credit, though sometimes with proper faculty supervision credit can be earned. Most positions are for modest pay or for volunteers, but internships are an effective way to initiate an overseas job search.
