Last August, we caught up with Sage Corps Alum, Laura Walker, and asked her what her biggest take-away was living in London and interning at Reedsy.

"My biggest takeaway? Being able to have an abroad experience different from anything I could've had through my university. It would've been just as exciting, but not nearly as rewarding professionally."

So what exactly was Laura referring to that sets Sage Corps' experience apart from your typical university-bred abroad program?

"Impactful work experience," says Sage Corps' Program Director, Rachel Bernstein. She goes on to say, "There's something very different about interning at a startup, amongst entrepreneurs, while abroad. And it adds an additional layer that potential employers recognize."

Rachel's right and Sage Corps Alum, Maggie Edmunds proves it:

When I got back from my Sage Corps experience, I stood out applying for full time jobs in consulting. The people I was competing with for the jobs had interesting summer internships too, but working for a tech startup abroad was super interesting to everyone that I interviewed with. I am not kidding when I say that I talked about Sage Corps in EVERY. SINGLE. INTERVIEW.

Check-mate! Sage Corps' mission really does work!! (You can't see them, but Sage Corps' Team is doing a little "happy dance" right now).

It is with that same excitement and joy that we introduce to you Sage Corps' Summer '16 London Cohort! Congrats to the 10 Fellows below who will be making memories, building resumes, and nailing future interviews! Cheers!
