Because the current job market is filled to overflowing with talented talented entry level job seekers, it has become increasingly necessary for candidates to find ways to stand out in a positive way from their competition. One way to do that is by participating in an international internship. Organizations like AIESEC (pronounced eye-sik) sik) can facilitate a student's efforts to find an internship oversees. Though not the only one of its kind, AIESEC is the largest student student-run global internship organization with 35,000 student members in 107 countries, including the United States.

"The internship program is only one stage of the development process they're trying to take students through," said Andrew King, an alumnus of the AIESEC program who works full time in the organization's business developmen developmentt office.

Because the program is structured, st students udents receive a higher level of service than they might if they found their international internship through their campus career services office.
