Questions & Answers

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.

Finance Internship

The 4-month internship experience I had in a financial advisory firm enabled me to understand certain concepts in the financial market that were relevant to my course.

Reading the financial times everyday and discussing it in the office while being tasked to do research papers on prospective investments for the firm, aided me to grasp and understand more how certain events affected specific financial markets (bonds, equity, pooled funds).

The daily tasks I encountered to compose a research paper was a challenge in itself as I had to learn how to 1) be more adept with excel, 2)coherent in organizing my thoughts and information I read to a paper, and 3) being able to present and explain what was written. I learned and enjoyed the whole process, and finishing three papers was indeed fulfilling.

Highly Recommend Intern Madrid!

Choosing to participate in Intern Madrid was a great decision. Once I was accepted into the program, I was able to communicate with Christina, one of the program coordinators, and she was always available to answer any questions I had about the Intern Madrid process.

As soon as I arrived at the airport there was a driver ready to pick me up, bring me to my apartment and give me the welcome packet. This feature made me feel at ease right away. My apartment was very nice - right in the heart of the city and just a short walk to the metro. There were many options for restaurants and shopping and I was so close to Retiro Park which was great! I really bonded with the other participants in the program and we still keep in touch! My internship was good as well. I worked for a marketing company and everyone in the office was very welcoming and friendly. I was a little nervous about not being able to speak the language fluently, but I was able to work in English, use a translator tool and improve my Spanish by speaking with coworkers and friends.

I also really appreciate the hard work and dedication displayed by the program coordinators - Christina, Thalassa, Olga - you ladies made my experience what it was and I can't thank you enough for your involvement and support!

Additionally, I liked the structure of the program - having pre-planned included events in conjunction with an internship was the perfect set up for me. I always attended tapas night on Friday - it was a great way to meet the other participants and create lasting friendships.

Madrid is a beautiful city; so full of life and culture, and you're guaranteed to have an amazing time! I was in Madrid for two months and they were two of the best months of my life! I highly recommend this program to anyone who is looking for a great internship and an awesome experience! :)

How can this program be improved?

I have nothing but positive things to say!

An Amazing Experience

Wishing to learn Spanish, I was signed up to go to Mexico as a part of a study abroad through my school when I came across the Intern Group. The thought of going to Madrid appealed to me because not only would I be able to study abroad and learn Spanish, but I could potentially get valuable internship experience as well.

I was put in contact with Thalassa and within a few weeks of communicating back and forth she informed me I had a Skype interview with Grant Thornton. Here in the US, Grant Thornton is a highly sought after accounting firm that is currently ranked 5th on a list of the top 100 accounting firms in the US so naturally I was both surprised and exciting to hear that I could potentially be working here while interning in Madrid. A few weeks after the interview Thalassa told me they had offered me the position, and naturally I accepted.

From the moment I arrived in Madrid, the Intern Group team made me feel both welcome and excited to be in Madrid and see all it had to offer. Within the first few group outings Thalassa and I both discovered we shared a love for hamburgers and over the next few days she continually sent me lists of places I should try in order to start my side journey to find the best one in Madrid. This is just a brief example of the things the people apart of the Intern Group team did to make each person’s experience that much more personal. When I arrived I was quickly welcomed by the other interns who were able to show me the ropes on what to see and do in Madrid, and later once they completed their stay and other interns arrived I found myself as the perceived veteran and was able to do the same thing for them. It was really interesting meeting people from different places all over the world and talking and comparing and contrasting both our everyday lives from our respective home countries and the differences between our home country and Madrid.

Though personally I never had any problems arise while in Madrid along with most other interns there, the few unforeseeable dilemmas that arose the Intern Group was there to handle in the timely manner I would say there was definitely never a big problem or conflict. At work, I was given both tasks that related to what I planned to do further in my career and the freedom of not having someone always breathing down your neck and letting you work at your own pace. My colleagues were rather friendly and I truly enjoyed the internship aspect of Madrid. Once I returned home I quickly was offered another competitive, highly paid internship that I am currently completing while I finish school and I definitely think I was both considered for the initial interview and offered the position because of my internship abroad in Madrid.

Being home for several months now I frequently find myself missing Madrid and the time I spent there. I am still in contact with people apart the Intern Group team, other interns that were there with me, and even other friends I met while in Madrid. If you are looking for something that will not only provide with valuable internship experience, but an opportunity to see an amazing city and have a wonderful experience I would highly recommend this program.

Couldn't have asked for more

I approached Thalassa and the Intern Group with a somewhat peculiar situation, as I was already in Europe and looking for a way to stay, get a job and enjoy the Spanish culture. Within a few weeks (2) Thalassa had placed me in an incredible internship! Although my circumstance is not applicable to most interns/applicants, this attests to their flexibility, attentiveness and hard work in accommodating anyone's specific needs.

My internship placement could not have been more fun. Not only did the position fit my personality and professional interests, but my employers were incredibly helpful in recommending fun activities, places to eat, and trips to take around Spain. They truly understand that while you are there to work and gain working experience, this is also an opportunity for you to explore the culture and have fun! I found a great balance of work and play, which is exactly what I wanted. first, I had a brief issue with an overbearing landlord who decided it was perfectly okay to enter my apartment without warning, or even without me home, I expressed my concerns with Thalassa she sprung into action! Within 24 hours she had found me the most incredible flat in what quickly became my favorite neighborhood in Madrid—without a crazy landlord. She did so with no questions asked, simply concerned with my happiness and well-being. This set the tone for the rest of my program, encouraging me to approach her with any issues I may have had. This woman is amazing at what she does—I swear she never rests!

Don't worry about making friends—Intern Group goes out of their way to ensure friendships are made between interns and staff alike with Friday Tapas nights, movie nights, trips to Toledo, and just the normal-day "hey let's grab drinks after work!" Or, if learning Spanish is on your to-do list, Thalassa quickly found me an amazing Spanish tutor that I'm still in touch with!

I have, and will continue to, recommend this program to friends. And I cannot wait to return to Madrid and see the city I love, as well as the friends I made while there!

Amazing Experience, thank you Thalassa!

I spent 4 awesome months in Madrid. I couldn't find a placement in the UK, but the overall experience I got on this programme is unlike anything I would have got at home! I got to meet a lot of new people, from my internship, Erasmus, and loads of socials from Intern Madrid. This is a great chance to do start your career, make new friends and contacts, and travel in this beautiful country!

I could not have asked for better accomodation, which was of exceptional standard, with students of my age, and in a perfect location! I also loved the Metro system in Madrid, where I had no problems- it is so easy and convenient to get around in these. Madrid is a beautiful city, with lots to do.

Obviously, employers value experience, but working abroad really stands out! I could not have been happier with everything here, I would definitely reccomend this! Thank you for everything Thalassa, it would not have been nearly as good without you!

How can this program be improved?

Start some weekly sports?

A fantastic experience!

I spent a few months in Madrid on an Intern Madrid programme. From the moment I arrived I knew that if I needed anything I would be able to approach Thalassa. My accomodation was great, clean and in a good part of town and I was with a bunch of cool people.
My job was exactly what I wanted to do. Working in an exciting and friendly start up where my ideas were listened to and I felt like I learnt something new every day. I am really excited to put the social media experience (among other things) that I gained on my resume.
The activities were also awesome, a trip to beautiful (but cold!) Segovia, watching Flamenco and tapas, tapas, tapas!
I loved it and I loved Madrid. Thanks Intern Madrid and a big thanks to Thalassa for making it a really great trip.

How can this program be improved?

I would probably say a trip further afield would be great, perhaps to Seville or something?

Interning in Madrid

Recently I spent a month in Madrid developing my design skills thanks to InternMadrid. I chose InternMadrid because the programme looked value for money and the experience is what I needed. They gave me the change to move, live and work in a Spanish company for a month. With little knowledge of speaking Spanish, it was challenging but the language barrier wasn't a problem.

The reason I chose Madrid was because I wanted experience a different culture and see how another country uses design in their daily lives. This experience means that I can now further my career as a graphic designer and get into a job I want.

The InternMadrid staff have been there whenever I need them, especially Thalassa. Whenever I got lost or just needed someone to show me the way around Madrid she was there.

Overall this experience has been worth it. At first the idea can be daunting and the money aspect can be scary too but I feel that everything was worth it and if I was given the chance, I would do it again...maybe when there are more interns!

Thanks to the InternMadrid team and Thalassa for everything :)
