Pretty much every business leader agrees that professionals with cross-cultural experience offer demonstrable benefits to the success of their company or organization. Buena Onda, with our network of community-driven, socially-responsible organizations, offers deep professional and cultural immersion experiences that enhance your global understanding and resume at the same time.

The benefits of international internships are long term, as they surface when your job application pops to the top of the pile because you have clearly shown that you know how to collaborate with people in all kinds of unpredictable situations to find workable solutions for all. These are skills that can’t be learned in a classroom. Stepping out of your comfort zone with an international internship gives your resume the gold star of self-confidence, cross-cultural communication skills, and creative thinking. Let Buena Onda help you achieve this important goal in your professional development,  contact us now!
