Dublin Summer - Internship

Program Overview

Dublin Summer Internships

Dublin, the cultural center and heart of Ireland, is a vibrant city well-known for its education, the arts, administration, economy, and industry. Our program guarantees an internship placement to help you develop professional skills that will jump-start your résumé and make you more attractive to employers in today's competitive job market. IES Abroad's unpaid, academic internships have placed Dublin students at companies and organizations like O'Brien Press, Kate Bowe PR, the Abbey Theatre Costumes Department, and the Lorraine Brennan Talent Agency, while also showing students the sights and sounds of Ireland.

Before you depart, we work with you to fine-tune your résumé, perfect your cover letter, hone your networking and interview skills, as well as prepare you for working in a new cultural environment. You'll be guaranteed a placement at a local business or organization, where you'll work for at least 32 hours a week. You also will enroll in a required 6-credit academic internship seminar with other IES Abroad interns, where you'll learn about a variety of local business settings and opportunities.

With IES Abroad's dedicated staff and international connections, you can be sure that you'll find an internship that meets your goals. You'll learn, and learn to stand out.

Stroll around Dublin to see how the historic architecture blends with modern design. Enjoy the energetic music scene and lively theatre. And when you need to get away, you'll discover outdoor adventures just a short train or bus ride away.
