Barcelona Internship

I have just left Barcelona after two months, and I already want to be back! I had the best experience exploring a city so unlike where I grew up, and met introspective and wonderful people through my internship at a clinic for sick children, as well as through Connect 123. With like minded new friends, I discovered amazing restaurants throughout the city, visited nearby places up the coast, went to a number of amazing art museums, and even went to a FC Barca game which was the best! My friends were the best, and I am even going to travel with some over the course of my gap year! Over my time working, I was able to form bonds with children struggling with challenging medical issues, as well as their parents, and doing so brought me fulfilment and awe of how such great difficulties can shape a person. All of my colleagues and the families were such lovely humans, and most of all inspired me to not take anything for granted and work through challenges with an open and light mindset. An experience I never would have found on my own, working at the clinic brought me clarity on the things I could see myself doing in the future, and was lots of fun for improving my spanish skills. The Connect 123 activities were a blast, my personal favorite was a tapas night on one of the best tapas streets in Barcelona! I am headed to the University of Washington this September, and while I will be sad to return back to the states, I am doing so with new perspectives of the world, new abilities to make global friends, and a mile long bucket list of places I want to travel to next! Thank you Connect 123!

Found the perfect job for me!

My experience with an internship through Connect 123 was incredibly exciting; I was ended up working in precisely the field I’m interested in and gained valuable experience that will help me pursue my career. I also really enjoyed the Connect 123 sponsored trips, especially to the cliffs of Moher. One of the best things about being abroad is the ability to travel further- I’ve been able to cheaply travel extensively around Ireland as well as in Germany and Italy. Another thing I appreciate is the automatic community I joined through Connect 123; it was really nice to arrive in a new country knowing that there were already some people I was connected with and who I could contact in case of emergency.

  • Great work experience
  • Chance to travel the continent in time off
  • Great to travel around Ireland
  • Expensive cost-of-living
  • Uncertainty about position up until a few weeks before departure
  • Hassle to get VISA in time (but support from Connect123 was good)

Buenos Aires- Connect123

During my internship in Buenos Aires, I got the opportunity to work with medical staff at a local hospital. I was able to analyze patient medication regimens and research cancer chemotherapy drugs. Shadowing physicians and attending rounds gave me the perfect opportunity to enhance my medical spanish terminology while strengthening my desire to work in patient care. I am super grateful for this opportunity because I got to meet incredible people and also be immersed in a new culture and enhance my spanish skills. I will always remember my time in Buenos Aires because I was able to become more independent and build confidence in my critical thinking and listening skills, which were highly utilized in an immersive language environment. Being able to travel to Iguazu and Uruguay were also a few highlights of my time spent in Buenos Aires.

A great experience

I could not be more thankful for the opportunities made possible by Connect-123. Connect-123 facilitated my 3-month Environmental Science and Policy Internship in Barcelona and I could not be more pleased with my experience. They made sure to support me throughout all steps of my internship, and I never felt alone in the process. The application and coordination process is something I wouldn't have been comfortable doing on my own, and I am beyond grateful for all they did to secure such a unique experience for me. I have learned so much about myself and my field throughout my internship experience and the memories I made are ones I will never forget. A special thank you to Adi and Lea for your support and guidance!

Incredible Experience in an Incredible Country

My summer in Barcelona was truly incredible thanks to Connect-123. I had an incredible experience living and working in such a vibrant and lively city. As a Biochemical Engineering/Physiology major, I have had the unique opportunity to apply my technical knowledge to real-world scenarios. I worked alongside a diverse and interdisciplinary team to dive into the problems associated with liver injuries and transplants. I participated in countless hands-on experiments and designed multiple setups. I was able to practice literature searching and presentation/project formulation and sit in on multiple business meetings. Additionally, I had the incredible opportunity to practice and develop my Spanish language skills in an entirely Spanish-speaking research project. My experience has shaped my future outlook and career plans and I left my internship with an invitation to return in the future. Barcelona is an incredible city filled with robust culture, incredible food, and amazing people. Being able to complete this program in Barcelona opened my eyes to the world and has provided me with incredible memories, friends, and experiences; all of this was thanks to Connect-123. Thank you for an incredible experience! ¡Hasta luego Barcelona!

A Unique and Beneficial Opportunity!

Finding experiences that relate to my interests and career goals is a difficult task on its own, made much more difficult during a global pandemic. Connect-123 went above and beyond in finding me the perfect internship. While I did have some hesitations and a couple hiccups along the way, Carla and Lea were there for me every step of the way and always had my best interests at heart. Thanks to them, I was able to gain experience in the archaeological field - even while remote! I was able to help develop workshops to help inspire the next generation of archaeologists while learning about the archaeological practices utilized in Ireland. I will always be grateful for the experiences and connections I made through Connect-123.

  • Someone was there to help me every step of the way
  • I was matched with an incredible organization I never would have been able to work with without this experience
  • I was able to expand my worldview and skillset by completing new tasks through this opportunity

Summer in Dublin

I am a senior at Bucknell University majoring in Global Management with a concentration in Europe. Through Bucknell and Connect 123, I had the opportunity to intern in Dublin, at an organization that helps SMEs who are looking for export opportunities. Since the very first day, my supervisor and the staff made me feel like I was at home. They understood I was coming from a different continent and needed to adapt to the work environment and the city. They clearly explained my role in the company and were very enthusiastic to see me learn and develop. I learned about International Trade and the mechanics and structure of a membership organization. In addition to this, I was able to improve my professional communication skills by interacting with SMEs owners (at times) and with my coworkers.

Bucknell and Connect 123, did a tremendous job connecting us with our internships and coordinating cultural events to enrich our knowledge of Irish culture. I was grateful to be part of this journey, making long lasting relationships and growing personally and professionally.

An amazing summer in Dublin!

I am a senior at Rhodes College in Memphis, Tennessee double majoring in Economics and Environmental Studies. Last summer, I had the wonderful opportunity to intern abroad in Dublin, Ireland through Connect-123. I spent the summer as a Research and Sustainable Development Goals Facilitation Intern at an environmental NGO in Dublin. My work included policy analysis, field work, and organizing and mapping data using programs such as Excel and GIS. Connect-123 planned exciting weekend excursions, ranging from the cliff walks in Bray and Greystones to travelling to Northern Ireland to see Giant’s Causeway and Belfast. I am so grateful for my internship in Dublin and all of the skills I honed during my time abroad!
