Everyone I’ve talked to who has gone through the Iaccoca internship has told me it was one of the best experiences of their college careers, which has gotten me pretty excited. I’m applying to two Iaccoca Internships myself, one in Stockholm and one in Amsterdam.
If you don’t know what they are, Iaccoca internships are just internship positions available internationally. But what about the cost, you may ask. I’ve got some good news for you, all of it is covered by Lehigh. You’re basically getting paid to go abroad and gain working experience. How cool is that?
Anyway, the application process isn’t too bad. There are cover essays, as usual, as well as a resume, which I need to build, and two letters of recommendation. The letters of recommendation are probably the hardest ones to get, especially if you’re not too close with any of your professors (like me).
