Externships

International Externship Opportunities

Alberta Abroad

Alberta Abroad places talented, young Alberta graduates into short-term international work positions called externships. The program helps graduates gain professional work experience in their field of study while working at an international organization or company. It's a win-win. Externs acquire new skills and gain a better appreciation of other cultures and values. Host organizations benefit from the talents and enthusiasm of young graduates, and Albertans benefit from strengthened global relationships.
