Unique Internships: Part I

This blog will be the first of many featuring one-of-a-kind internships we offer.

What many people don’t know is that we offer a wide range of internship opportunities across varying fields and sectors. Here are 5 internship placements you probably didn’t think you could do abroad.

1. Sports

(Intern in Barcelona, Madrid)

For individuals looking to get into the highly competitive sports industry, an internship like this can help you achieve exactly that. Placements can be with an actual team, typically first or second division futbol or basketball, or with companies in sports marketing or community relations!

 2. Graphic Design

(Intern in Barcelona, Madrid, Seville, Vina del Mar/Valparaiso, Oaxaca, Montevideo, San Jose)

Graphic design is one of our internship fields with plenty of options, but for some reason people don’t think they can do this kind of work in Spanish or South American countries. We’re here to tell you that you can! Between family run businesses to international corporations, there is always a need for individuals with graphic design talent.

3. Spanish Equestrian

(Intern in Montevideo)

In this unique placement, interns will have a variety of duties working with equestrian life. Among them include building endurance, preparing the foals, and other training tasks. Candidates will also live on-site in their on studio apartment, where they will be close by to work the ranch and stables.

4. Human Resources

(Volunteer in Oaxaca, Intern in Vina del Mar/Valparaiso)

This is another field we offer internship placements that may surprise some. However, this is an opportunity to work in the Human Resources (HR) departments of various corporate companies as well as non-profits and government offices. Candidates will be responsible for a wide arrange of HR duties such as wage calculation, employee insurance issues, assisting with employee turnover, and more.

5. Culinary

(Intern in Barcelona, Madrid, Oaxaca)

We feel it’s a must for prospective chefs and culinary professionals to add an aspect of international flavor to their repertoire. It’s a good thing we offer placements in a variety of different environments such prospective professionals can hone their skills; internships can be in renowned hotels, historic restaurants, or “alternative” vegetarian and vegan cafes. By the way, Oaxaca is one of the world’s most well-known culinary hot spots, so take advantage of these placements!

Candidate Update: Christina C. (Intern in Barcelona)


We recently caught up with one of our current candidates who is abroad in Barcelona, Spain. Here is was Christina C. has had to say about her experience so far:

“Things are going fantastically here! I have had the opportunity to go on a couple different excursions with my university’s study abroad program with students studying here (including my two best friends!) so that has been fantastic! We have gone to Parc Guell, La Sagrada Familia, Montjuic, casa Batllo, and more.  I highly suggest any student that may know a school who is doing a study abroad program in their city try to get in contact!

So far I have only traveled a little outside the city, once to see my host family from when I studied here in high school who live in the mountains, and few other trips to the coast. I will however be traveling to Montserrat and Croatia these next two weeks. I also had the opportunity to attend a music festival about two weeks ago called Abroadfest that hosts numerous music artists  such as Cedric Gervais and Madeon and lights shows throughout a weekend every spring in Barcelona. There are a huge number of music festivals and concerts here in the spring and early summer so I suggest students look into those!”
