Global Overview
Leading with Integrity
Micro-Internship Program

A professional development program with Global Overview, providing students key leadership skills to thrive in their careers.


The Global Overview team is experienced, multifaceted, nimble, communicative, and passionate. They work tirelessly to help their partners achieve long-term growth for their businesses on Amazon. Their ability to offer a full-service approach to their clients stems from the diverse and extensive backgrounds of their team members. They are located across the United States and Europe, with offices in Minneapolis, Seattle, and London.

Integrity is at the core of everything Global Overview does. They are currently looking for professionals who value that principle, have a passion to build brands, thrive in a collaborative environment, and possess a natural curiosity and enthusiasm for learning.  

In this 4-week program, they will share fundamental professional and soft skills that any University of Illinois student can take with them, either to Global Overview, or wherever their professional journey may lead. 


This program will be offered virtually and is asynchronous. It is not a course and no course credit is currently available. This micro-internship will cover:

  • Giving and Receiving Feedback
  • Professional Communication and Presentations
  • Strategic Problem Solving

The curriculum is a combination of pre-recorded lectures, role playing, and hands-on coursework. By the end of this micro-internship, students will be able to successfully utilize these skills in a professional environment and build them into their own personal brand, while also being able to showcase them during upcoming interviews in the professional world as they attempt to secure a post-graduation role (maybe even one at Global Overview!).

After this program, participants will:

  • Have a completed, professional project they can showcase in their portfolio.
  • Receive a “Leading with Integrity” Micro-Internship certificate and badge from Global Overview and the Charles H. Sandage Department of Advertising.
  • Receive sponsorship from Global Overview in the amount of $400 for their commitment to the program.
  • Secure an interview with Global Overview to discuss potential internship and professional opportunities.
