      What will your internship look like?

      Travelport's internships are about applying your skills to real-life problems that matter to customers and advanced technology. They are also about helping you start a challenging and satisfying career in the technology industry.

      While at Travelport, you will experience a comprehensive program where you’ll learn about the projects you’ll undertake, about Travelport, as well as our industry as a whole. For example, during our Fall program, each week a senior leadership team member can give a presentation specifically for the interns on trends and developments in a critical technology or business area.

      In addition, you’ll meet regularly with an assigned mentor to talk about your experiences, aspirations, and potential career in the travel and technology industry. At the conclusion of your internship, you will have a chance to give a presentation to the company's CIO, as well as his Senior Leadership team.

      "We had five interns in our area last year and they were able to start working on exciting travel projects from the very first day. Our interns expressed how much that they valued the real world experience and the open access to all levels of management. I was surprised at one aspect of the internship is how much we were able to gain and learn from the interns. My favorite was when the interns presented their work to the GTS Direct Reports – they did a fabulous job and you could see how much influence and value they were able to provide in the short amount of time they were here. I wholeheartedly support this program and believe it is beneficial to the interns as well as to Travelport."

      "What makes our program successful is the outstanding commitment from everyone in the organization to support our internship program. In particular our managers and mentors have the greatest opportunity to make the 121 connection to ensure that they help each and every intern to ensure that they have an outstanding journey with us at Travelport. In particular they encourage and guide them to developing new or existing technical skills whilst they are working on real life projects. This is combined with offering advice and support to direct the intern on their way to the beginning of their successful career path."
