Free, self-paced virtual work experiences available to all members of the NYU community, no application or interview needed. Each simulation takes 5-6 hours to complete asynchronously and are always available. Students and alumni can discover industries and job functions that they may not have previously considered, and build confidence and gain skills to get you 'work-ready'. Since they are not paid projects, work authorization is not an issue.
Parker Dewey is a platform that manages micro-internships. Short-term, paid, professional projects completed by college students or recent graduates on behalf of busy professionals. Projects typically take 5-40 hours to complete remotely and are available year-round, on demand, and as needed. Micro-internships are open to all students and recent alumni.
Since these are paid projects, we recommend not using Parker Dewey for CPT or pre-completion OPT but instead using this resource during your post-completion OPT to "stop the clock". This allows you more flexibility, avoids potential academic and USCIS issues, and won't take up to 3 months for approval. As always, you should consult with an OGS advisor before moving forward with any paid projects.
Violet Network is a professional networking and mentorship platform for the NYU community where community members can expand their network, connect with students and alumni in their region or industry of interest, join discussions about career and professional success, and access educational/career resources and discussions.
University of Sydney Programs
The University of Sydney has partnered with over 60 leading business, government and community organizations in Australia and globally to offer undergraduate students the opportunity to work on real-world projects and engage with major industry partners. In collaboration with an industry partner and academic lead, you will work in a group with other NYU Sydney and USYD students from a range of disciplinary backgrounds and together you will research, analyze and present solutions to real-world problems set by the industry partner. You will then have the opportunity to present your project with your group to the industry partner. Students are expected to attend scheduled class times for 3 hours per week.
Study Away and Your Career
Time spent in another culture provides students with an opportunity to develop a skill set and understanding that will set you apart from your peers. Employers interpret a global experience to mean that you have acquired many of the marketable qualities they are looking for:
- Cross-cultural communication skills
- Creative problem solving and analytical skills
- Flexibility and the ability to adapt to new circumstances
- Appreciation of different peoples and cultures
- Maturity and independence
- Foreign language skills
Employers want to hire culturally sensitive graduates with practical foreign language skills and a more developed worldview. With a markedly increased exchange across national boundaries, globalization is the buzzword in today's workplace; a global experience during your academic career is a testament to your ability to thrive in your chosen profession after graduation.
Looking to Studying Away?
Why limit your experience away to taking classes? Our Global Sites have a healthy mix of internships and other experiential learning opportunities you can use to learn more about the world of work beyond New York.
