best time of my life

Discovering Connect 123 was the best thing that could have happened to me! I wanted to come to Barcelona for 3 months and gain some cool abroad work experiences in advertising and copywriting that I could add to my resume and portfolio. I did that and so much more. I was really picky with what type of internship I wanted to do but the staff and program director were always readily available and willing to go beyond their call of duty to make sure I was satisfied and happy. Finally, I landed the job of my dreams! I did SO much more than what I could have asked for and now my portfolio looks amazing with real life work that the company uses.

I came to Spain by myself (and 0 spanish speaking skills), and I can now get by on conversations and can't count the number of foreign friends I now have! The Connect team (and other interns who come to the same city around the same time) are wonderful! We went out for drinks and had a great bond. Wish I had more time to see them! I'm so sad that I have to be leaving. Barcelona is so amazing and so different than back home. I had a blast with all their little random festivals. The fire festival in Valencia, paint fight, carnival in sitges, and so much more) Life is so calm here but at the same time, the work load for my internship I had was heavy (which I asked for, and I thoroughly enjoyed it!

How can this program be improved?
Maybe have housing that was connected to the program and wasn't so expensive

Great and very flexible program

From the day I decided to spend my summer abroad, Connect -123 made it easy and convenient for me. Connect -123 guided me all along the process of what turned out to be the best summer of my life in the beautiful city of Barcelona.
Connect -123 was very helpful in finding me plenty of options for an internship very quickly and that were all in my very own described interest. Connect- 123 did not only help me with my placement but also with housing, airport pickup and a whole lot of information about Barcelona. I was very happy with Connect-123 for finding a local small Center for Psychotherapy where I learned many great things about my major and life. Having someone to turn to when in doubt about something was great and to know that Connect-123 was there for me made the whole transition to another country much easier.
Connect-123 made my summer in Barcelona the best. Barcelona is an amazing city with plenty of things to offer to anyone. Spending 3 months in this great city was the best decision I could have ever made. Connect-123 made it possible.

How can this program be improved?
Group activities were great, but some of the times some members/students were not present. It would be great to have mandatory meeting or activities to get to know everyone beter.

My Barcelona experience

Connect-123 gave me a great placement in which I was able to expand my knowledge and skills in the development field in a very friendly environment.

I chose to find an internship with Connect-123 because of the variety of services they provide throughout the duration of the internship. Connect-123 helped in finding the appropriate internship, list of housing options and language courses that were tailored to fit my needs. I got a discount in almost all services provided through Connect. Most importantly for me, living alone in a foreign country was a difficult decision. Knowing I had someone to contact was very comforting!
