InteRDom Increases Baruch College Students’ Connection with the Dominican Republic

Share on:

The internship program InteRDom, an initiative of Global Foundation for Democracy and Development (GFDD) and Fundación Global Democracia y Desarrollo (FUNGLODE), is scheduled to participate in the spring semester Study Abroad Fair at Baruch College on February 19, 2009. Through this event InteRDom seeks to increase students’ awareness of the vast internship and academic opportunities available in the Dominican Republic through the Program in the area of business.

“The Office of International Affairs at Baruch College is very interested in strengthening ties with InteRDom. They’re interested in fostering greater exchange between the two countries,” explained Program Coordinator Alicia Alonzo. “Students from Baruch,” expressed Alonzo, “have an excellent profile. Their academic background in business makes them well-suited for many of the internships InteRDom provides in the Dominican Republic.”

InteRDom will have a stand at the fair where students will be able to learn about the program, discover the internship opportunities available and learn more about the Dominican organizations affiliated with the program. The InteRDom team will also be available to answer any student questions.

The purpose of the Baruch College Study Abroad Fair is to encourage students to explore the world through study and work opportunities abroad. With this purpose in mind, InteRDom’s stand will target students interested in Latin American and the Caribbean Region that express a desire to obtain professional experience while completing their studies.

Baruch students that attend the fair will have the opportunity to turn in their resumes and project proposals they are interested in developing during the 2009 summer and/or fall semesters.

InteRDom offers students the opportunity to gain professional experience by interning with Dominican organizations and businesses related to their field of study. The program significantly contributes to the development of the nation’s employment sector and the advancement of academic research.
