Opportunity of a lifetime

I am so glad i came across the InternGroups page! After being accepted into my internship, a great team helped me get comfortable in my new living space for the 6 weeks that were to come. After getting settles into my new home, I got to meet the interns that id be traveling and hanging out with. I am so proud to call these people my new friends and family. I have met some incredible people and the staff and program managers were so helpful and heartwarming. I was so sad to say goodbye ( I even cried). I cant wait to hold these memories for a lifetime. On my free time I got to travel to different countries in Europe for very cheap and made some incredible memories. I am so happy I didnt pick any other internship, because this is one for the books. I couldnt have asked for a better team. 12/10 would recommend ;). #TeamDublin

How can this program be improved?
Incorporate some more outings (Belfast trip maybe) that can really get the team memebers and interns involved, that are included in the price.

Thanks The Intern Group - Dublin Program

I had the most amazing experience ever! I´ve worked for 2 companies at the same time and I´ve learned a lot but even better than that was all the connections I´ve done, friends, all the places I´ve seen and the dreams that I´ve found again. I feel that without the support that The Intern Group provide the entire time, wouldn´t be impossible to concentrate on my work and travel experiences. I stood in an amazing house, I lived with people from all around the world and made friends for life. I was also able to live the Irish culture and I fell in love with Dublin. In total, I visit 6 countries, more than 20 cities and I´ve found out that I´m a global citizen and I´m ready to live whatever experience I´ll have to face. I can only thank everyone envolved in my growing process. I´m now facing the most challenging thing: comming back home and trying to live differently.

Life-Changer!

This was honestly the best decision I made. To have an internship in my favourite place in the world was amazing enough, but you do not expect it to get better by meeting life-long friends, exploring, filling your days up with cultural activities and in my experience, actually being able to figure your life out and what you want to do with your future.

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience, when I needed support it was provided to me right away. Those who work at TIG (shoutout to Katie and Paul, the best supervisors and friends), always make sure that you are up for a good time and get you involved. There were events on every week; my personal favourite was going to Token, which is a place filled with old arcade games with diner style food and amazing cocktails, and then our trip to the Cliffs of Moher which was so much fun and allowed everyone to get out of Dublin and see more of Ireland.

Overall, this is a programme that is unique as it not only allows you to gain experience, but it gives you so much more. A highly recommended programme that boosts your CV, gets you experience like no other and lets you have the most fun you've ever had all in one!

How can this program be improved?
I would say the only issue would be housing. It is understandably difficult when dealing with external companies and landlords, but student housing is and can be a big issue, therefore it can just be improve and an area that should have more time invested to it.

Opportunity of a life time!

I graduated from Uni in May and wanted to travel, but also build my resume. I found The Intern Group and it turned out to be the best thing I could have done for myself.
My internship was amazing, they gave me real work, assignments and projects. My coworkers were friendly and welcoming- on my first day they decorated my desk and on my computer screen there was a meme that said “you’re on of us meow!”. It was the best office expirence I could have asked for.
Paul, the program coordinator was the best. He would organize weekly meet ups and weekend activities. He really provided a true Irish expirence!
In short, I loved my time in Ireland, I met some of the coolest people in my life all while being abroad and building my professional resume. If I could have improved anything, it would have been extending my time!

The best 8 weeks of my life!

Doing an 8 week internship in Dublin was the best decision I’ve ever made - it helped me grow as a person, and provided invaluable experience in my field of study (Computer Science). The events organised by the Intern Group were always incredibly enjoyable and worth every cent that I payed for this opportunity. I’ve made lifelong friends with people from all over the world, as well as important industry connections including mentors who have passed on valuable information on to me.
For anyone thinking of applying for this internship experience, I cannot recommend it highly enough. Being given the chance to live and work halfway around the world, and being completely independent but still supported by your fellow interns and the staff at the Intern Group - it’s a once in a lifetime experience and I would do it again in a heartbeat.

Dublin Internship

This program was great to build experience in the career you wish to pursue. It helped me gain experience in the law industry and was very well organized by the Intern group! I was able to work at a law firm and learn more about the daily practice in being a lawyer. This experience has further interested me in continuing a career path in this field. I am now in law school with an intention to become a lawyer after a fulfilling experience in Dublin. The Intern Group also assisted us in every way possible to ensure we were settled in well in the city and that we experienced the tourist aspects of Dublin as well. The events organized ensured that we were well connected with other interns and that we had activites to do outside of our 9-5 work commitments.

The Dublin Experience

The time I spent in Dublin blew my expectations out of the water in every aspect. My internship itself gave me great hands experience and helped me learn a lot in my field. I did the didgital marketing for a The Church bar, restaraunt, nightclub and tourist attraction. They took me on a corporate event and because it was a tourist spot as well as bar and restaurant, I had plenty of perks when it came to food and bringing groups of people there for a night out.

The instructors were amazing, they were all very lively and outgoing and did an excellent job making everyone feel comfortable upon their arrival and the duration of your trip. They set up a variety of events and trips that I advise everyone to take advantage of. It’s a great opportunity to go out with the other interns and get to know them as well as taking part in something fun. There’s events that range from something as simple as a literary bar crawl to something as adventurous as a day trip to Cliffs of Moher and Galway.

Because I did the Summer program, My accommodation was located in UCD (University College Dublin). Where I shared an apartment with 3 other people. From my personal experience, the summer program offers a better living accomodation then the middle of the year. The group size of interns that come in the summer are drastically larger as well and everyone in the summer program are all placed together at UCD. Where in traditional housing you are placed in a house that is in supposed to be a convienient location from your Internship, however, your housemates are typically not from the Interngroup. I guess that can give it a real authentic experience. It would just depend on your personal preference at the end of the day.
-However, if you’re not a fan of the rain and cold weather, I would definitely advise going in the Summer.

The people you find throughout Ireland, particularly In Dublin, are very diverse and welcoming, of course with an exception of the occasion drunk. You’ll find that there’s actually a large amount of people that aren’t even from Ireland but are living, working or traveling there as well.

Intern group review

This is the most exciting opportunity I have ever been given and I enjoyed it tremendously. Prepare to have a professional experience you will never forget while making memories that will last you a lifetime. The interngroup in Dublin is top notch, and I was blessed to have worked with their team. The friends I have made, both local and and fellow interns, have had a great influence on my life, and I can’t wait to come back one day. The professionalism I gained in my workplace has already began helping me reach my individual goals in the field of psychology. The cultural events I was exposed to created an interest in within me for the Irish culture that is hard to put into words. Overall, it is one of my greatest decisions to date and I’m truly blessed to have had this experience with the Interngroup in Dublin. It was amazing!

InternGroup Dublin Review

Where I'm from, internships are everything and it's near impossible getting a job in your degree field without one. Even ones that require 0-1 years of experience can be difficult to get as they'll go with people who have that 1 year. This was a great way for me to spread my wings and return to a city I love! I had been in Dublin before and had been itching to go back so this provided a great opportunity for me! The internship I was a part of was amazing. It let me get a real feel for what a job in my career field would be like and I got to see my projects applied and displayed for everyone to see, which was incredible! The outings and the people were probably my favorite. The group provided so many different things to do nearly every week which really helped me make the most of my trip, and if there wasn't an outing, being able to take a day trip by taking the DART or bus with others really made it worthwhile. The only downside (slightly) was the housing. I had a few issues with a few small things, but they were really nothing I couldn't handle and deal with for the time I was there. In this day and age, it's all about connections and experiences, and this group provided just that in a fun and safe environment I will always be grateful for.

Internship experience

I went on this journey with a goal and that is to get more comfortable with European culture in general. But not only did i achieve that goal, Dublin is a beautiful city on its own. The Irish are great folks and the streets are really clean and flowers growing on the side of the road. The Intern Group is a grand company since they really care for us. They’ll ensure that we’re always enjoying our internship and we can speak to them if we’re having a hard time adjusing (for those not used to being away from home). They have booked a few attractions for us too just so we can enjoy Ireland more. I would strongly recommend The Intern Group to anyone who is planning to do overseas internship.

Extremely fulfilling AND fun.

My internship in Dublin, Ireland with the Intern Group was truly incredible. I was paired with a job that gave me an immense amount of useful and helpful experience for my future career-path, and even though it's over, I'm still in touch with my co-workers and boss who are helping me to get jobs over here in the States, and have even discussed coming back over there to continue working for them abroad. As for the program itself, it was extremely well organized, and the three on-site program coordinators were some of the coolest people I've ever met. We loved spending time with them! I lived in a house with people who would come and go every few weeks, but they were also some of the most interesting people I've ever met. It was quite an experience, living and working abroad with students of about the same age doing the same thing. But I think it wouldn't have been as great an experience if it wasn't for the great effort of the Intern Group staff. I definitely recommend participating in an internship with the Intern Group if you want a quality experience working abroad. Who knows where it will lead!

How can this program be improved?
The ONLY thing that I think could have been improved was the housing. Personally, I had a great housing experience (great location, housemates, etc.) but I know many people on the program felt they were too far from their jobs/their friends or that their house wasn't as clean as they'd like it. But when you did bring these issues up to the Intern Group staff, they always did everything in their power to fix the problem.

Trip of a lifetime!

I cannot think of a better way to have spent my summer. This program was incredible, every detail was thought out to make it the best possible experience. When choosing what to do with my summer I knew I wanted to travel, but also felt pressure to get an internship. The Intern Group was the perfect mix of the two.

I worked for a startup company where I got to make a real impact on the direction of the company. I got experience in the field I am hoping to work in and my boss was always sure to check in with me to make sure I was doing meaningful work.

In addition to work, I met some of the coolest people. It was so refreshing to be surrounded by outgoing people who are curious about the world and driven to be successful. There was no shortage of fun things to do either! The Intern Group had so many cool events of things you may not think to do on your own, or that would be more fun as a group. I also had the opportunity to travel a bit while I was there. A few friends and I went to Edinburgh and just by chance got to see the Queen of England!

Overall, this experience allowed me to grow as a person, have an amazing 6 weeks, and even add some high-quality experience to my resume!

I just wish I had stayed longer.

Personal Growth

This experience was not only excellent in terms of preparing me for future success in my career field but also helped me grow as a person. This placement taught me to be independent in a way that I could not have learned anywhere else. Being in a foreign city and having the confidence to go out and experience the world is a truly invaluable experience. I would recommend this program to anyone looking to grow both their professional and life skills.

Dublin Experience

This program was awesome. They provide you with a great deal of guidance as well as independence at the same time. If I could do it all over again I would do it exactly the same. My advice to future participants would be to take advantage of all of the opportunities at your internship and be proactive. Attend as many meet-ups and events with the other interns and group leaders, make the most of your time in Dublin because it flies by.

How can this program be improved?
The internships need to properly communicate what you will be doing or what they expect from you.

International Internships in Dublin with The Intern Group

My experience with The Intern Group in Dublin was outstanding. The coordinators were so helpful and genuinely concerned with any questions or concerns I had. The Irish are so much fun to be around and the coordinators were no exception. The company I was placed with for my internship was a perfect fit and I had an amazing 6-weeks working for them. The summer housing all the interns in my group were placed in was very clean and well maintained. I felt very safe in my location and the city bus I took to-and-from work was easily accessible.

I would highly recommend an internship in Dublin with TIG over the summer. There is never a dull moment in the city and I was never at loss for something fun to do. There are so many amazing restaurants to try, people to meet, and places to explore in Dublin. Public transportation is fantastic within the city and to the surrounding cities and towns meaning travel is definitely an option. If you want a fun city, with a diverse and inclusive cultural feel that still has strong traditional roots, there is no better place than Dublin.
