My internship: Fulbright Commission Spain

This semester, I’ve had the pleasure of working as an intern for the Education USA branch of the Fulbright Commission Spain. The Fulbright Commission is housed within the State Department, but the actual goal of Education USA as its own entity is equipping Spanish undergraduate and graduate students who have an interest in pursuing studies […]


My Intenship: Kubuka NGO

Last semester I interned at the Fulbright Commission up by Avenida de América. I went to the office once a week for five hours and helped with organizing files, responding to emails and translating documents. All of the office staff at the Commission were very friendly and happy to help me whenever I had questions. […]


Interning with Patrivalor

Patrivalor is a small asset management firm located in Madrid, about 5 minutes walk from the school center at Calle Monte Esquinza. I have been interning there for about a month now as a junior market analyst. I enjoy working there and I hope that by describing my experience, future students will be encouraged to […]

An Unexpected Internship

Before coming to Madrid I did not plan on applying for an internship. In my mind, I wanted to have time to explore Madrid and not be committed to anything more than classes. But, a few days after arriving, we were all told that internships are great opportunities that we shouldn’t pass on. I was […]


My Internship at an NGO

One of the things the program will encourage you to do when arriving here aside from extracurriculars (I joined a gym), taking a class at the university (I am taking a class at Alcalá), and joining fun activities to get you to integrate more to Spanish culture (City Life Madrid trips and other reimbursable activities), […]


My Internship: Clínica Ojeda

The program is approximately 16 weeks long, so this week marks the halfway point. This didn’t at all seem possible. It feels like my classes are still getting started, […]


My Internship: Patrivalor

FARLEY FLORES- El verano pasado estaba un poco molesto por no poder obtener la práctica competitiva que tanto quería. En lugar de ser un empleado en una firma prestigiosa, yo estaba trabajando en una compañía y ganando paga absurda. Sabía que no era la mejor forma de invertir mi tiempo, pero tenía que hacerlo porque […]


First Day at Apunto

AVIVA KARDENER- It’s 12:30am, and I just got home from my first day at my internship with Apunto, a cooking school in the barrio called Chueca, about a fifteen minute walk from the program center. My work in this internship is an opportunity to further engage and immerse myself in Spanish culture throughout my semester […]

Vivir para trabajar

MARISA CAPONI- Tonight over an incredible dinner, which consisted of a pasta dish my host sister made with bacon and melted cheese, we were helping my other host sister figure out what to major in (she’s 16 and undecided). Luckily, she still has 2 full years to make the decision, so we discussed almost every […]
