It's on you

The placement process for Panrimo was frustrating. There was a lack of communication and a mix up with the length of my program. I had originally applied and paid a deposit for a 16 week program and found out three months later that I was only going to be interning for 12 weeks. I was not placed at my internship or given my housing placement until two weeks before I left for Madrid. Once I arrived in Madrid my onsite coordinator was very helpful in showing me my apartment and how to get to the city center. I lived on the outskirts of Madrid quite far from where I worked, about a 35 minute commute. I also lived alone, which was great when I had friends come visit, but bad when I was alone when my bathroom flooded or when my power went out. My internship at Bike Spain Tours was great, all my coworkers were very kind and accommodating. I learned a lot from this experience and definitely gained an even stronger sense of independence, but if I did not already have experience living in Spain I think I would have felt very isolated.

Response from Panrimo

Hi Jenny! We’re pleased to hear that your internship was a great fit and that your coworkers were kind and accommodating. We’re also glad that Laura was very helpful, she’s an excellent on-site coordinator! We do apologize that you experienced a lack of communication during the application process. Our staff in the US and abroad work extremely hard to make sure that we communicate clearly, and we are committed to improving this.

One of the biggest benefits of living and working abroad is the independence that students experience, and the skills and maturity that they develop. We are continually adding more activities for students and coordinators to make sure there is a strong sense of community, without impeding independent exploration. Your feedback is very helpful for us as we continue to expand our program in Madrid and other locations. Thank you for taking the time to review us, and best wishes for all your future travels!

Journalism internship in Madrid's finest magazine

If you're looking for an internship to help broaden your experience in every way, then this is the internship for you.

The magazine I worked for (Guidepost) was a blessing. I literally took control of all aspects of journalism, and also helped to advertise. I must admit, it was not what I was expecting. This internship is not a strict structured internship, but they have a flexibility that allows you to take full advantage of the internship or not. The choice is really yours. Work days consist of short meetings two days a week. Other than that you are expected to experience the Madrid life and search for stories.

The program itself allows you to gain a sense of its culture. They schedule day trips and activities to help you to get to know Spain. While still allowing you to explore the country itself.

This experience will be as productive and fun as you make.

What would you improve about this program?
My one complaint would be housing.

Not everyone was satisfied with their housing situation, but from our experiences in the homes we were placed in we gained life long friends and new connections that in-turn introduced us to new parts of the city.

Like I said before, this experience is what you make of it. So, don't spend time complaining, enjoy!
