NGOs & Non-Profits

Sector Overview

An internship abroad at an NGO gives individuals the opportunity to work directly towards a worthy cause. The time and devotion put into a project that serves the greater good provides a sense of accomplishment that is hard to match. Furthermore, purposeful work as an intern abroad provides a very positive signal to future employers and sets the foundation for a successful career in the industry. CareerUp has been working closely with regional NGO’s, especially during the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan, which devastated certain parts of the southern regions of the country.
