Searching online for the type of job you want is fast and easy, and you can see new jobs as soon as employers post them. However, job hunting carries certain risks which you need to be aware of and take precautions against, in order to stay safe.
Overseas recruiters often require a three-way agreement between the University, the student and themselves, (as the internship provider), which may cover a range of different things depending on the role and the company. The UCL Study Abroad Office provide more information on this.
