Amazing Experience!

The Intern Group program was an amazing experience! I was in Madrid, Spain for 8 weeks and I learned so much about the culture and the language. I have always wanted to go to Spain, and I’m so glad i found this program. They provided a remote internship to me so I was able to travel around Spain and other parts of Europe. The people within the program were so friendly and so fun. I met so many new friends. This was an experience I will never forget and would love to do again. I highly recommend The Intern Group!

What was the most unfamiliar thing you ate?
When in Valencia, I ate “Conejo” which is Rabbit, in my Paella.

Loved it

I loved my time in Madrid, the activities put on by Nikte were really fun and the city is beautiful. The group was really nice and everyone was very friendly and fun, I would strongly recommend this trip to anyone who is thinking about an internship abroad! Also the actual internship was a great learning experience I learnt much and feel like I am a lot more prepped for the next stage in my career now. I found that most of the others on the group were of the mindset as me and this made bonding and activities very easy and fun

Pros
  • Friendship
  • Fun
  • Learning
Cons
  • Room wasn’t ideal
  • Heat especially in later June was tough

Highly recommend experience

I did the full 6 months in Madrid for my year in industry as part of my Bachelor's degree and I loved every second of it. From the second I landed in Madrid, I felt so exceptionally supported by TIG from the private driver to take me to the amazing Flat to the invaluable support from Laltia and Nikte. I had the pleasure of befriending numerous individuals from a multitude of countries that will last a lifetime. Every week Nik organized so many different amazing events ranging from essential Madrid experiences to uncovering hidden local gems, you'll never find yourself with nothing to do in Madrid and I would like to thank Nik for her hard work :)

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
Even though I was there for 6 months it still felt like 6 seconds, so I would recommend taking advantage of every second of free time so you can make the most of your experience in Madrid.
Pros
  • Getting to make new friends from people arround the world
  • The organised event from Nik
  • Support from Nik and Lalita
Cons
  • Price

Interning in Madrid - The Intern Group

Interning in Madrid was one of the best experiences of my life, and has left me with lifelong skills, memories and friends. My two months felt like just two seconds, but were packed with so much fun and learning. The Intern Group was amazing in organising my work placement and accommodation, and ensuring that my time in Madrid was enjoyable and safe.
This program allows for professional development and first-hand industry experience alongside cultural immersion and the adventure of travel, and if you have the means to participate I highly recommend you take the opportunity!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Take advantage of the opportunities from the very first moment! Madrid offers so many things to do and see, and Madrileños are so friendly and always happy to share their recommendations for the best tapas spots or bars.

Amazing Internship

I liked the opportunity to experience an intership abroad and my destination (Madrid) was incredible. I believe that the initial investment that you do it's totally worth it, considering all the help The Intern Group provides you and the activities they organise during our internship. I think that like any investment, at the beginning it is considerable and/or expensive, but totally worth it. It is a completely different experience that helped me professionally and the company where I did my internship amazing. Being in a program like this was amazing, I could visit a lot of cities in Spain and the EU and I could know a lot of cultures because it's easy to move around Europe. It's like being on vacations but with the opportunity to develop as a professional and as a person.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Just apply and go for it. I highly recommend this program and the experience to live abroad and know another culture. It enriches you personally and professionally, it makes you stand out for future employment. The program makes you realise where you wanna live in the future.
Pros
  • Personal and professional growth
  • Visiting new places
  • Knowing and experience the life of a different culture.

Amazing Internship Experience!

I had one of my best lifetime experiences with The Interngroup in Madrid, Spain!

*Please note I am adding another review now, even though my internship happened a few years ago already.

Everything was basically perfect. Most people were very kind and open-minded at all times, especially Lalita and Cata. They were always very helpful and seemed very concerned for the well-being of all interns.

The InternGroup always listened to all of our questions and concerns, even those that were not entirely related to the internship. Lalita, Cata and the rest of the people from The InternGroup were always concerned about us. They kept fostering the personal and professional growth of their intern, while giving them tools and advices to develop key skills.

The InternGroup also organized many fun and interesting activities and events with their interns, always finding ways to make things work overall, despite the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, and everything that involves.

The housing providers (Vitium) also made my experience much better than I was originally expecting. The “hostal” was very well located (right in the center of Madrid), and the building was in great conditions, and at a very affordable price.

The company in which I was working as an intern (called The International Business Hub) had a lot of positive, characteristic aspects, which made it unique and distinguished it from many other places: Firstly, the managers and employees were very skilled at what they did, and were always willing to answer our questions, and help us learn in the process. Secondly, the the working environment was always very productive, and the division was divided very effectively and efficiently. Thirdly, the employees, managers, and company as a whole had well-traced short and long-term goals.

Moreover, Álvaro, Juan, Fernanda, and all of the people there seemed to be incredibly knowledgeable and smart individuals, with a tremendously great level of expertise in their industry. They were always looking for the personal and professional growth of others, even including the interns. I have a lot of respect and admiration for them, and value and appreciate everything they do.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Take advantage of every opportunity to the maximum, and grow as much as possible individually, collectively, and professionally

Madrid Internship

I did the 6 week program and I loved every second of it. Madrid is an amazing place and there is always something to do. The Intern Group makes moving abroad so much easier by providing you with your living accommodation, public transportation card, and even activities to do with the other interns. Everyone I interacted with was very friendly and welcoming. The part that made me the most nervous was where and who I was going to be living with. But I was very happy with my apartment and my roommates. I definitely recommend doing this to anyone who is interested on going abroad.

Life in Madrid as an Intern

Choosing to come to Madrid right after doing my postgraduate studies in the UK has been an exhilarating and exciting experience. Not only it challenges me to come out of my comfort zone but I have been able to enjoy my internship here and make good connections for life with my flatmates from different countries as well as with other participants. Madrid is also a safe, friendly, and historic city to visit especially if you are a Real Madrid Fan, you can watch the games live at Bernabeu and attend matches.

Pros
  • Making everlasting friends for life
  • Very helpful and guideful internship
  • Sensational events and experience

Questions & Answers

Hi Verica! Whether these internships are paid or not is down to each specific placement company! However, their international internships do tend to be unpaid.

Hiya, Living situation wasn't bad at all, your usually with other interns. When I first got there I was a bit surprised at the flat as I thought it was going to be more like a uni halls or something, but the decor is quite dark and relatively small. Also had an oven that you had to light yourself which was an experience! Haha. But you get used to it really quickly and I loved my flat by the end. I...

I was in Madrid for two months and had prepared about €1600. I did budget and because I was very careful with money at the start I had quite a bit left over towards the end. It also depends on how much you eat out because that does get quite expensive.
