There are many things to think about when you are working as an intern overseas to ensure the best outcomes.

You want to ensure that you do the right thing culturally and socially, and also make a good impression on your employer.

It will help if you have researched your host organisation and the country you are visiting. Try to arrive a little early in the country, and stay in safe accommodation nearby your work, so you can fully focus on your internship.

Be proactive at work to get the most out of the experience, and remember to keep copies of everything you create.
