Testimonial from Collabriv Alumnus
“Once back in Belgium, I got a job with an international company that I could never have gotten before. Why? Collabriv. My six months in the Bay Area working with colleagues from all over the world and with the ASEB team improved my people skills and gave me the practical experience to get that job. Yet Collabriv is about so much more than the internship: studying leadership at a Master’s degree level, becoming a lifelong member of my host family, volunteering in the community, traveling in California—it was special. Don’t think twice. Apply and give yourself this chance." -- Fred Verbogen, Collabriv 2013 intern from Antwerp, Belgium
Through its internship program, Collabriv also helps companies in the San Francisco Bay Area develop a pipeline of young global talent with the necessary skills while also accomplishing major projects.
