One of the main reasons students come to study in Georgia and the United States is that they can earn valuable work experience during or after a degree program. This work experience can lead to full-time employment outside of the United States and it can sometimes lead to full-time employment inside of the United States.
Students on various visas can opt for training possibilities through internships in the United States. Georgia, with its bustling cities of Atlanta, Columbus, Augusta and Savannah, is a prime location to engage in an internship to enhance your resume and give you practical work experience.
