Madrid is continuing to be great! Now that I´ve gotten settled in and adjusted, I feel like more of a local resident than a tourist. I went to Segovia last weekend, and loved it. This weekend we´re going to Barcelona!

Testimonials

Jennifer J., Hampton University

I have really enjoyed my time here in Madrid! I think this has been an amazing learning experience and I have really grown professionally and personally. As far as working with Accenture I would recommend them to other business students. I believe that I am doing meaningful work that will directly correlate to the work I will be doing when I start full-time. Also they do not usually give me busy work, so if they ask me to do something it directly adds value to what the team is trying to achieve. I have had some down-time especially in August, but I was prepared for this and I used this time to strengthen my excel skills or practice Spanish.

As far as the crazy process, I think the process helped me to learn more about how business is conducted in Spain. I am so happy that I made the decision to intern with Adelante and that I was able to work with Accenture. You all have been a big help in making this one of the best summers ever

With regards to my psychology placement, I am shaking with excitement to write about this, I am having such a great time in this internship! It has undeniably been a fruitful working experience! I get to apply my knowledge into practical use and more importantly, I have come across a wide spectrum of people that I won’t usually have a chance to meet on daily basis.  I managed to speak with the patients who are diagnosed with mental disorders ranging from anxiety disorder to schizophrenia, and also I have counselling experiences in conjugal therapy; with couples who are going through marital problems. I also get to run diagnostic tests for different patients and interview with them individually on my own. I also have consulting experiences to enter with the doctor and listen to Dr Rojas and Dr Ana’s consultation.

It has definitely been a rewarding experience, I am really grateful that Adelante has offered me this great opportunity to work with Dr. Rojas and other practicians in the clinic as well as an intern that I met during the course of my intern experience. I can’t emphasize more on how grateful I am, many thanks to Adelante. Thank you once again for this valuable experience in Madrid.
