IO New York - IO Abroad

IO Stands for International Office. Established in 2013, IO Abroad became one of the most successful internship agencies in Europe.
The reason for our exponential growth is that we put time and expertise for every student who apply with us. This way we can provide them a tailor made experience that perfectly matches their expectations and needs.
Our team is dedicated to finding our student not only a life-changing experience, but to give them a global perspective of the most competitive companies in the world and the way they operate.

Our business model allows us to grow faster than any other internship agency around. After Cape Town, the IO brand became with IO New York the number one placement agency for international students who wish to conduct their internship in New York City. Now, IO Abroad, offers "paid" internships and traineeships in all major cities in the United States. Soon we will start offering our programs in several major cities in Europe.

Internship New York City
Sora, Arnhem Business School - Communications Management:
"IO New York was always available for me, both via email as via the phone. They were very friendly and gave me a good overview on the current status of my visa application and the tasks I had to complete. Also, what I really liked is that I only had to pay afterwards (which was not the case at the previous internship placement agency where I was enrolled. IO New York only send me the invoice when I already started with my internship in New York City.”

Under the IO Abroad umbrella are:
IO Cape Town – Internships & volunteering programs in Cape Town.
IO New York – Internships & Traineeships in New York City.
IO USA – Internships & Traineeships in Miami, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Silicon Valley.
