Adelante Abroad Internships in Chile
Travel and Boost Your Resume With Internships in Chile
Our programs operate in Viña del Mar, Spanish for “vineyard by the sea”, which is simplified to Viña by Chileans. Viña is just an hour and a half west of Chile’s capital city, Santiago, and sister-city to Valpariaso! A turreted granite castle called Castillo Wulff and a huge floral clock greet visitors who arrive by boat. It’s easy to get to so many places from here. The ski resort Portillo, old hippie beach town Horcon, and Casablanca Valley wineries are all a car ride away. Don’t forget Patagonia, another drive but this one a bit more off the grid. (Easter Island is unforgettable and once in a lifetime, but it’s pricey to get there)
Closer to “home” is Qiunta Vergara, a large public park on the top of a hill overlooking Viña. The park serves as kind of cultural center of its own – think Song Festivals, Summer Concert series, international Arts Fairs. And La Serena, a quiet coastal town, near a number of observatories offering stargazing in the Atacama desert. Lastly, the beach, we can’t forget the beaches! Long and winding and populated by a wide, paved Boardwalk / path that stretches for miles. Joggers, moms walking strollers, random stray dogs, public exercise areas, and more, make this a go-to part of town even in winter. You have the ocean in front of you and incredible mountains right behind you.
Take advantage of one of the most affordable programs out there! Free housing, intensive language classes, and guaranteed placements are included with your program costs! Internships in Chile are offered year-round for those who cannot go just in the Summer.
Hear What Candidates Have to Say
My time here has been great so far. I am improving my Spanish, slowly but surely, and I’ve made some friends inside and outside of the Adelante program. Chile is an incredible country… I had no idea how much I was missing in South America. Thank you for your guidance and assistance throughout the process.
Teaching English in Chile was wonderful! My experience was great from the beginning. I had a really nice driver from the Santiago airport to my apartment in Vina del Mar. Once I got to Vina, I had a really nice stay at a large apartment with two roommates. At my internship, the staff was really nice and helpful, and so were the students. I was really able to focus on teaching the material and helping students master English. I would definitely recommend this program to anyone.
I highly recommend Chile for anyone looking to work or study abroad, I highly recommend Viña for foreigners live in Chile and I highly recommend Adelante as an intern placement program within this region. My experience with Adelante was a truly valuable to me and the experience I gained there has already begun to pay dividends in may professional career. From day one (or even, well in advance of day one), Adelante is invested in its clients and responsive to all questions and concerns. Their staff both in the United States are caring and committed to the success of your program.
Personally, I had a great experience working first for a Chilean law firm, then in the legal department for a university based start-up “incubator” I learned a lot doing so and was able to make valuable business contacts in the process. Your experience may vary but the constant will be the constant attention and support you get from this Adelante’s friendly and professional team.
I knew that I wanted to continue working in PR and advertising as it’s something I became truly passionate about over the past 2 years. So after my interview with the program’s director Kimberly she had just the right place in mind. She told me about my internship placement in Valparaiso with a small but hustling business incubator. I specialized in Audiovisual production. Which at the end of the day meant that I would be working with the businesses that had been incubated and make videos for them. From a simple 30 second product demo to a 5 minute video over a bio mechanics product used by a bio engineering team to detect the level of Parkinsons in a patient.
It was incredibly important that I begin to pump up my resume and portfolio. At the end of my work I had become close friends with the office and I still keep in contact with them. I would recommend this program for anyone, especially because Chile is a growing nation.
