- It depends on your preferences, studies and career goals.
- According to LMU Career Services, countries such as Great Britain, the USA, France or Spain are very popular. So challenge yourself to go to (linguistically) "exotic" countries. Here, there is less competition for internships, and your experience will also stand out later in your resume. Often, the working language is still a world language like English or even German anyway.
- Money factor: find out about general living expenses in your destination country. The web pages from the Deutsche Auslandshandelskammern (German Chambers of Commerce Abroad) often provide useful information.
The type of place for your internship
What's the goal of your internship? Which industry do you want to get to know (better)? Do you want to do research on site? Depending on your answer to these questions there are different placements to consider: Maybe a company is best for you, a public institution, an NGO, or a research institute.
