Madrid Internship

My experience in Madrid was amazing. I was very lucky to have the opportunity to work for a very well established organisation. They provided me with great learning opportunities and treated me very well. I met some of the best people whilst living in madrid and I am still in touch with them a whole year later. Having the IG intern on my resume has also been very helpful when applying for jobs. I found that employers are very interested in these types of experiences and that it is a great talking point for personal growth and skill development.

The best experience

I really enjoyed having this opportunity, I think that is the best way to start building your resume while you get to know another culture and live the experience having new challenges. All the intern group team is super supportive and they really make an effort for offering you the best experience. They were always there, even for the minimal doubt. Also I loved that there were fun activities in order to show you new places or give you a cultural immersion of the City and also they are also helpful because they facilitate to get to know the other interns

The Intern Group Programme - Madrid

The Intern Group programme in Madrid was an incredible experience and opportunity for myself. I worked in a forward thinking organisation, on projects involving EU funding, and gained experience in a field I hope to work in. I met friends from all over the world, with whom I have travelled with and hope there will be more adventures to come. This programme has really given me an insight into what I want for my future and the goals I now intend to pursue. It’s a great chance to step out of your comfort zone and push yourself to learn new things. I am grateful for the support and activities organised by Lalita and hope to meet her again when I return to Spain for my future studies.

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
My most nerve wracking moment was meeting my employers for the first time and speaking in Spanish with them. This was challenging and made me feel nervous in my ability to communicate. I overcame this by being calm, talking each task step by step, asking for help where I needed it, and having faith in my ability to learn and improve. My confidence with my Spanish has gotten so much better and I am ready to continue learning this incredible language.

The Interngroup- Madrid: Review

A famous quote states that “great achievements emerge from great opportunities.”

Whether it was hard-work, effort and dedication, an enormous coincidence of life, destiny itself, or something else, I feel very lucky for the fact that I was given a great opportunity for professional and personal growth.

I could not be more grateful to The Interngroup and The International Business Hub for having so much trust in my abilities, values and in me overall; I hope I can correspond by bringing great results to the table as well.

I am also thankful with the housing administration for paying close attention to the needs and wants of their residents and for keeping a detail-oriented approach to make the experience even better.

It is crucial to mention that I have felt very welcomed and well-treated by the vast majority of people that I’ve met so far here in Madrid, which have been very polite and friendly to me overall. I also hope they can get a positive impression of me in general terms.

I still have a couple of months left in this program, and I am hopeful that by the end of it I can look back and be proud of the professional and personal progress being achieved. Meanwhile, I also desire to explore much more of this wonderful city. Madrid’s prolific monuments, beautiful edifications, delicious food, fascinating landscapes, and unique culture are only some of the things that continue to amaze me every single day.

Going back to the quote from the beginning, I’m aware of the great opportunity I have right here and now as an intern, and I hope to advantage it to the greatest possible extent and be able to make great achievements and reach my goals.

By Daniel.

Internship in Madrid

My experience with the Interngroup in Madrid has been rewarding and fulfilling, both in terms of the social encounters I have made and the professional skills I have gained. Whilst studying Media and Communications in the UK, I completed a PR and marketing internship with a venture and law company, as I am passionate about the PR industry and want to pursue a career in this field. While my tasks initially included social media management, they have gradually expanded to include creating LinkedIn and Instagram ads, writing the newsletter and blog, but also contacting newspapers to place our content! It is true that the internship in Madrid has far exceeded my expectations and my previous concerns about making friends in a country where I don't speak the language or adapting to this new working environment were swept away as soon as I met my new flatmates and started working. The intergroup did a fantastic job of integrating me and I never felt alone or left out. On the contrary, I felt like I never had a minute to myself and never had enough time to do all the projects and plans I wanted to do! If I were to give any advice to any new interns or those considering applying, it would be to start the programme with an open mind, positivity but also perseverance and hard work from day one, an attitude that eventually allowed me to extend my contract with my company and gradually be offered more responsibilities! The social aspect of the programme and the new bounds I have created have made my experience one that I will never forget and contributed to shape me as a more mature and fulfilled individual.

What was your funniest moment?
We decided to visit Alicante, a city in Spain, with my group of friends, and I was the one who took care of the airbnb booking; a beautiful flat with sea view and enough rooms for everyone! On our way to Alicante, exactly two hours before arriving, the owner informs me that there is no way I booked a flat that day as the flat had to be occupied for the next 4 days.... After a long argumentation with the owner, the sending of the documents stating that I have indeed paid and booked that flat, I realise that not only had I booked the wrong days but also the wrong month! The end of the story is rather happy, I managed to get the refund thanks to the 24 hours cancellation policy and I found a new flat in the city centre... A stressful moment that ended with a good laugh!

Valuable internship experience

The internship experience has proved to help me quite a lot in developing my self professionally and personally. The internship has also helped me widen and broaden my skill set by continuously refreshing and practicing them at the work place hence, I have also managed to gain transferable skills which will be extremely handy whilst applying for this to a postgraduate degree. This internship has helped me grow out of my comfort zone and enabled me to change my outlook in the field I interned at.

Summer in Madrid

I had the opportunity to complete my marketing internship in Madrid this summer. I can honestly say it was the best decision I made. Not only did I get the marketing experience and credit from my school but I also had an amazing time. I experienced being part of a new culture and traveling alone for the first time. It was safe and there is always something going on whether it be an event from the program or just events around the city. The events hosted by the program are really fun and helps you get accustomed to the new changes. All the events are different so its a new experience every time. As for my internship, the process was very easy and everything is explained very well. My supervisors from my job were really nice and always answered any questions I had regarding my tasks.

What would you improve about this program?
Having a fan or AC in the apartment would be my only improvement.

Try it, you won't regret it.

How is the experience with Intern Group? It all starts when you are asked for the documents, it is always the most boring and tedious process since it has to go through several revisions and there is always that little feeling of nervousness because you do not know what they will offer you or if they will accept you in the program, and when you least expect it, the first job offers and an immense amount of emails arrive. You feel overwhelmed by the information and the nerves increase a bit, job interviews always worry me a little but when you talk to the first person from the Intern Group who will be in charge of placing you in a company, all the nerves go down. I am sure that everyone is like that but I was interviewed by a very warm person from England who receives you with a smile from ear to ear and treats you in a very professional but friendly way, all the people you deal with have an incredible disposition To help you with what you need but don't forget it, you will do professional practices. When you least expect it you are already at the airport to say goodbye to your loved ones and throughout the entire flight you have a head full of ideas about how your experience will be and the emotion invades your body. Once you are in Madrid you find more and more extremely friendly people that make you feel at home. When you arrive at your apartment you realize that you have everything you need and something you really appreciate is that everyone has a single room that helps you a lot to rest as you should. In the first few days you have a training from the Intern Group and then you know your work team, and I know I mentioned it many times but as expected, everyone is very friendly.
The first week is always very interesting because you get to know the city and you can always get lost in some way and you get to beautiful places by accident, you also meet amazing people and the days sometimes become complicated because you become an adult with all the responsibilities from one day to another and despite all the difficulties you decide to get to know the city and continue learning from all the things and people you know, try new things and realize everything you are learning by leaps and bounds. The work experience is always good and offers excellent opportunities to learn new things and get out of your comfort zone but you realize that the people you know contribute a lot to your life and teach you things that you would only learn if you go out in real life. People were a very important part to enjoy the trip, the practices were an opportunity that teaches you to grow as a person and constantly grow, the Intern Group staff helps you take away all worries, and these three things are good in themselves alone, but without a doubt what made this trip unforgettable was having the honor of experiencing all three together.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
My program lasted 6 weeks and I definitely feel that being longer would have been a better option.

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.
