Yes, it may cost you more to use a provider to find your internship abroad, but do you really want to skimp on the experience of a lifetime?

I'm a firm believer in the benefits of #internabroad , but are students and other young professionals taking advantage of these great opportunities? Are the #highered  and #intled  communities recognizing the power of these experiences and promoting them enough?

+Go Overseas asked me to find out -- and even with my background working in the field of professional exchange, I was surprised at some of what I discovered!

Sawubona! So you've got three days to spend in South Africa and you're at a loss of what to do. My first and most important secret tip: spend more than three days! If there is any possible way to d...
