Global Placement – Interns are placed at the Libra Group or one of its 30 subsidiaries around the world, often involving the exploration of a new culture and city.
Mentor Program – A mentor (senior executive) is assigned to each intern, providing guidance to the intern on how to navigate the internship, company and personal career development.
Buddy Program – Libra ensures that each intern feels welcome in their new location by pairing them up with a junior colleague, known as their ‘Buddy’. The Buddy provides support pre-arrival, as well as during the internship, and is available to assist with any questions about the business or local area.
Feedback – The internship focus is on learning and preparing for a future career in a global context. Feedback is crucial for success. Goal-setting, coupled with performance reviews and constructive feedback, are all features of the program enabling interns to refine skills and develop self-knowledge.
Training – Each program intake commences with an intensive week-long orientation where interns are introduced to key Libra executives from across our worldwide operations who share industry insight and personal stories which motivate and inspire the intern group. Ongoing training is provided throughout the duration of the internship via individual one-on-one sessions as well as group skills training in areas such as resume writing, LinkedIn, business protocol, organizational and time management skills, negotiation skills, resilience and stress management techniques.
