Dublin Internships

OVERVIEW

Live, work, AND play (not necessarily in that order) in Dublin, Ireland, where a treasure trove of internships await you. As the modern business landscape is all about globalization, international markets, and benefiting the public good, there’s never been a better time to get the leg up and add some TA-DA! to your resume than by jumpstarting your career with an internship at a small-to-medium enterprise (SME) in Dublin.

While juggling your coursework at the Dublin Business School (DBS) and your internship placement, you’ll take serious advantage of the “big village feel” that is unique to Dublin. After you clock off from a hard day’s work, find mighty craic (that’s Irish slang for “fun!”) with your new coworkers-turned-lifelong connections. The European professional scene is yours for the taking. Ready to snag semester or summer internships in Dublin?
