Webinar #16: Do I Need to Be A Student to Intern Abroad
A lot of people who are in need of a change or are looking for a great career experience think about what it would be like to pursue this endeavor abroad. One thing that holds them back is the notion that one must be a student in order to do it. We break down that myth in this webinar.

Go Overseas Staff Interview: Ryan
Here is our Marketing Coordinator, Ryan C., sharing his thoughts on what’s most rewarding working for Adelante in his staff interview for Go Overseas.
I have learnt a lot from my placement, such an amazing experience. Exactly what I wanted and what I expected: to be exposed to a private clinical setting, covering a range of problems starting from family crises finishing with schizophrenia. The doctor himself and his crew were very supportive and friendly, which I think is quite important especially for a new person which doesn’t really know Spanish. During the month, my comprehension skills rocketed up as well as reading, the doctor asks you to read A LOT ( a piece of advice for someone doing the same placement is to read beforehand, it will greatly assist during your internship and in general in your future career)
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
