As the most diverse state in the country and home to many of America’s top industries, California is a perfect destination for those looking to gain international experience without leaving the country. Californians hail from every corner of the globe and speak over 200 languages (more than half of the state’s residents speak two or more languages.) Of course, the Golden State also hosts over 100,000 international students every year, who come to study and intern at California’s world-class universities and companies. Los Angeles, where those accepted to the California program live and intern, boasts several of the world’s top universities, including UCLA and CalTech. The presence of these institutions draws not only students but researchers, public speakers and thought leaders to the region.
By interning in Los Angeles, you’re becoming a part of one of the largest, most diverse economies in the world. The city is a global business epicenter, and is therefore the perfect place for a young professional to start making connections.

Many multinational corporations and nonprofits have offices in LA, and of course, top American companies call the city their home.
As an intern, starting the networking process is easy. From your fellow interns from around the globe, to international students living nearby, to your colleagues and managers, the possibilities are endless. Each person you meet could be a valuable connection that helps you get a future career opportunity.
