Custom Date Internships

ISA Custom Matches Students to an Internship that Fits Their Goals

The ISA internship team takes the time to learn about each student’s goals through a one-hour advising session. The information gathered during this advising session is passed along with the resume and cover letter to our overseas placement team who then matches each student with an internship placement in his/her chosen industry.

Learn more about the process and what to expect.
