Why Should I Choose to Intern Abroad in Valencia?
What makes internship opportunities in Valencia so unique and appealing for students?
Apart from the choosing Valencia for its weather, the beach, the food, and the city itself (should we go on?!), Valencia is a great city for students to broaden their resume and gain valuable international career experience through internships!
The amount of internship sectors available is endless, with internships for students studying anything from megatronic engineering to enology. This along with the fact that the internship placements are selected to suit each of our students individually make these opportunities unique!
As well as our individualistic approach, we ensure that each student is assigned a supervisor at their placement who will act as their mentor; guiding them through business procedures and providing them with constant feedback and support. We know each of our companies personally, having worked with them for many years, so we can assure that the internship supervisor’s will help the student to acclimatize to the new work environment and have the best experience possible!
How does the placement process work?
We analyze each students profile, resume and motivation letter to form a complete idea of their internship preference, which is typically based on their field of study, personal interests, and previous experience. Once we know the student’s preferred sector and specific interests, along with their Spanish level, we then contact the appropriate companies that we consider to be the best fit for the student’s requirements. We relay these options to the student, and they can choose the best placement for themselves. We make sure they are matched to an internship where they can learn about their chosen sector and gain valuable work experience at the same time.
Will I have any help while I’m there?
As we mentioned, each of our interns are assigned a supervisor at their chosen company, who will act as a mentor for them during their placement. On top of this, we are in constant contact with the company and the supervisor, to make sure everything is running smoothly and the intern is having a positive experience. With the student themselves, we check in with them on a weekly basis, and even more frequently if they want to! This gives us the chance to evaluate their progress and also to resolve any issues if they arise, so that the student as well as the company can feel as comfortable as possible.
