BUNAC remains a very popular choice not only for internship-seekers, but for travelers looking to earn as they cross continents. BUNAC is not a placement service, and you’ll have to do a lot of research yourself. The program is offered to people 18 and over in the U.K, Ireland and USA looking to work in Britain, Ireland, New Zealand and Australia, or Canada. BUNAC provides the visa and resources for those looking for an independent work experience. It is best to have something set up before your departure, although many travelers make use of BUNAC’s extensive resources once they arrive.
While there are many other ways to search for an international internship, this is a great place to start. Be sure that you have a good idea of what you are looking for before you start looking in order to avoid being drawn in by a tropical location or ocean view. After all, this is a work experience!
