Gain international work experience, apply your classroom skills in the real world, and bolster your resume and get the edge you need.
Prove your value, earn college credit.
The chance to apply classroom skills in a professional environment is what makes iX unique. We'll empower you to generate real-world value during a 4-week internship with one of our local partners.
This blend of hands-on learning and real-world work experience qualifies for general internship credit at many universities. We'll help you through the process based on your summer curriculum and your university's requirements.
Develop an overlooked skillset.
Master the soft
Universities often fail to emphasize the importance of soft skills. Developing qualities such as emotional intelligence, resilience, and creative problem solving leads not only to professional success, but to a more fulfilling life.
Get out what you put in
The real world isn't always a fun place—it takes effort and persistance to succeed. You'll be matched with a company based on your personal goals and interests, but also your commitment to learning and growing in class.
