Internship abroad in Rome

Home > Expat Guides > Europe > Italy > Rome

Pursuing an internship (referred to as a stage in Italy) is often necessary for an initial step on a career path. Seeking an internship abroad is advantageous, especially in terms of developing interpersonal skills in diverse environments and international experience.

One of the best ways to land an internship abroad is by directly contacting companies in your home country that have international subsidiaries. Many companies have particular application methods for interns and may place you in a position according to your skills and interests. Knowledge of Italian is a plus, though not always necessary.
