San Jose is the epicenter of economic and political activity in Costa Rica. Based on that notion alone, there may not be a better place to participate in an international internship and jump-start your professional career!
Develop professional skills with relevant work experience that will help build your professional network. Language, cultural immersion, and academic credit are some key factors that candidates can take advantage of. Gap year students, undergraduates, and post-graduate candidates have the opportunity to boost their portfolio with international work experience.
Attention ENVIRONMENTAL candidates:
We offer placements in different NGO's, the National Park System, and the Veragua Rainforest Natural Park Reserve itself! These internships allow you to assist in environmental impact and conservation projects, tropical ecology, sustainable development, marine biology, species monitoring or other environmentally based projects!
