For the fourth year in a row, InteRDom representatives will be participating in the eighth annual Work Abroad Fair at Baruch College in New York City on October 13, 2015. The fair is hosted by the Baruch College Weissman Center for International Business, and is located at the Information and Technology Building on the 7th Floor.
The InteRDom program has a long relationship with Baruch College, both in hosting interns at their New York headquarters and placing students in internships in the Dominican Republic. This fair is a unique opportunity for program representatives to meet students who are interested in careers overseas, and in years past has helped recruit excellent talent for programs and opportunities in the Dominican Republic.

This year’s fair promises to attract more than 80 students to serve its aim of placing Baruch students in international internships that will allow them to compete in the global marketplace and expose them to foreign social and business cultures. As an extra incentive, this year Baruch will be holding a drawing for three Baruch students to win a $2,000 fellowship to be used towards one of the programs represented at the fair. Students attending the fair will hail from Baruch’s three schools: the Zicklin School of Business, Weissman School of Arts and Sciences, and the School of Public Affairs.
InteRDom, an initiative of Global Foundation for Democracy and Development (GFDD) and Fundación Global Democracia y Desarrollo (FUNGLODE), is the premier internship, research, and academic study program in the Dominican Republic. It offers international students the opportunity to research important topics at the forefront of the United Nations agenda, obtain professional experience by interning with Dominican organizations and businesses related to their fields of study, and/or earn academic credits by taking courses and seminars at a local university.
