Denver, CO, September 12, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- This year more than 1.5 million Americans will be able to claim that they are college graduates. These competent, driven and energetic young adults are all unfortunately, scrambling desperately for the same jobs. However, the realization that they may not have the experience or skills required by many jobs can be very discouraging. This highly competitive market leaves many recent grads feeling like small fish in a very large pond. Gaining experience in the desired field is essential for newcomers to the job market, and in order to land that perfect job grads must present a resume that sets them apart from the masses.
An internship in another country equips grads with relevant career experience along with many invaluable skills needed in the real world. Working with others while overcoming cultural and communicational differences shows employers a strong ability to negotiate situations and problem solve. In fact, the propensity to travel exhibits a firm sense of self and an initiative to take on risks independently.

International internships present a variety of opportunities for recent graduates to explore the world, gain self confidence all while distinguishing their resume from thousands of others.
