My first open-minding experience

Before Absolute Internship, I haven't had any similar open-minding experience. Absolute Internship gave me the opportunity of working abroad, which is a relevant CV-factor for a undergraduate student. It gave me the chance to get to know tremendeous people from all around the world. From United States to China. From Jamaica to India. And that is the magic of the program. You enter a business-interested networking with who you're spending 1 month of your life. At the end, this network ends up being your family.

Its is a worth it, good price, facility program. All of the factors you as an individual intern should take into consideration if going by yourself, such as housing, metrocard, city tours, and obviously, the internship, are already planned by absolute. Everything was as espected.

The coordinators are FANTASTIC. Nowadays I have a great relationship with one of my program coordinators. Again, NETWORKING.

End but not least, the internship I was hired in was awesome. I had the opportunity to interact with constumers, to investigate for different short-run objectives. I really felt part of the start-up company.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Dont be afraid of doing anythig. And please, please, enjoy every day of your intership as it would be the last one, because times flies when you're enjoying life.

Amazing Experience!!!!

Honestly one of the best decisions I’ve made during my college career. I went into it not knowing what to expect, and left the program a different and better person. I was able to grow both professionally and personally through my internship as well as through meeting so many new people! Exposing oneself to a different culture is something I believe everyone should do as it really broadens horizons. This program offers so many locations so there is a plethora of experiences to choose from. I wouldn’t trade this experience for anything!!!

What would you improve about this program?
Nothing! I genuinely had a great time and wouldn’t change a thing.

Barcelona Baby!!

My time in Barcelona was really a dream come true. From the culture, food, language, and customs I learned so much. The architecture of various places such as Catalunya, Tibidabo, and La Sagrada Familia was stunning, to say the least. Not only that but the historical elements of this city were truly fascinating. I knew immediately that I could see myself living in Barcelona in the future. For my internship, I worked for a non-profit organization called APSOCECAT who serves the deaf-blind community. My job was to research how dance can improve the lives of deafblind people and strategies and methodologies for introducing it to them. Upon completion of this research, I felt so accomplished. I was able to come up with a strategy for introducing my passion of dance to a new community. It was a truly humbling experience.
Outside of the office, I spent my time soaking up the Barcelona sun, visiting different places and artifacts and of course trying their cuisine. In more ways than one, Barcelona reminded me of my home, New York. They had an active nightlife and you could find a plethora of food options- from sushi and ramen to burritos and burgers, I fell in love with the city more and more every day. The Absolute Program gave me a tribe of people from various countries and states. I have made some great friendships that have continued even after leaving Barcelona. This is an experience that I will remember forever!

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
If I could do this all again, I would have stayed longer than one month! The time flew by so fast, I was sad when it ended!

Review of Absolute Internship in Barcelona

I had an unforgettable experience interning in Barcelona and could not recommend it more. I gained not only valuable work experience, but I was able to completely immerse myself in a different culture. During the program, you are able to attend workshops that help you develop your resume and reflect on your work experience. These workshops were a great step in helping participants achieve and conceptualize their desired career path. Not only that, but small, optional trips were organized on the weekends. These trips were a wonderful way to further explore the culture of the place that I interned in. All the people that I met through the Absolute Internship program were incredibly driven and inspiring. This created a wonderful learning environment that I will not forget!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
I would suggest that all travelers should pursue this program with an open mind. Even if you do not love your internship, there is something to learn within this experience: you learn what you do NOT want to do in your future.

Summer filled with culture, fun, adventure!

Why did I end up in Barcelona? I had a goal of traveling to Europe and stumbled upon Absolute Internship on my university website. I heard that some other students from my school had been on the program and that it was a great program, so I decided to apply. Europe and Barcelona is such a beautiful city with so much diversity and lots of culture. The people in the city are so friendly, the architecture is so beautiful and thoughtfully designed and built, the streets are so clean compared to where I’m from and the people are so happy with life.
Absolute Internship is an awesome company and provided us with a fantastic support. They cared for us. We were not like numbers for them which I really appreciated. The events and trips that were included were fantastic and well-organized. It was definitely worth the money.

I would strongly recommend Absolute Internship to anyone who is planning to do an internship abroad.

What would you improve about this program?
I would I have loved to stay longer!
