Amazing program!! Awesome advisors and activities

I did the GE internship program in Madrid, Spain! The living situation was great, very central and close to a metro station. My roommates and I were matched well, I had a really helpful and personable program advisor, Lourdes who I could go to with questions and concerns. I was matched with a company I liked for my internship, and was given opportunities to get involved and learn from my supervisors The program had excursions and activities every week, and my work was flexible to my traveling plans on weekends. Great experience :)

Fantastic internhsip

Best internship I’ve ever had. I visited a lot of Spain it was great. The program did an overall great job planning fun activities for me to do, and places to visit. A great experience and would reccomend to all students who want to intern abroad, Madrid was a great city to live in. It Was a fun three months for me, a great experience. I learned a lot about myself. I learned a lot about Spanish culture. Could be a life changing experience for some people. I got to travel all over Spain and I enjoyed that very much. The internship was my favorite, I have interned at multiple companies in the US and this internship in Madrid has been the best in office experience yet.

Best internship experience!

I was matched with a marketing firm for local and touring theatre companies and I fell in love with the welcoming atmosphere everyone in the office shared with me, and I have my local coordinator for finding me that perfect match. I got to work with big Spanish stars, help at premieres, edit a regional magazine, and manage website and social media posts. I grew so much in areas I didn’t even know I had the potential to learn, and gained so much experience that I know I will use in any job I apply for. My internship was amazing, and the social outings were fun!
It is not too easy living with strangers, but having a room to ourselves helped to keep some boundaries needed, and further enjoy the times we did spend together for program sanctioned events and for anything we planned on our own. I loved being able to visit other places and cities during the weekends when I didn’t work. I have learned from different cultures, and appreciate traveling so much more than I ever thought I could. I had a phenomenal experience and would highly recommend everyone to do an internship abroad.

An Unforgettable Experience

My Global Experience as a whole was one to remember and will forever be a lifetime experience! I have met amazing people along the way that I will be able to count on in the future. From the beginning, my onsite GE coordinator Lourdes was attentive, lovely, and caring with everything we had going on! Any questions or concerns I had, Lourdes was there! I could not thank her enough! Creating bonds with locals in Madrid will always be something I will cherish! Muchas gracias por todo Lourdes :) <3!!

Madrid- Una experiencia muy bonita

I can sincerely say that my time in Madrid changed me. During the last months, I have come to understand more about myself, about life, and about my career. This program allowed me to meet extraordinary people that I will not forget. Through it, I got to visit the most important attractions that Madrid offers, and even explore its surrounding cities; Toledo and Segovia. I can say that I felt safe since the first day, as our coordinator, Lourdes, was always attentive to what we could need and how we were doing. She truly cared for us, and her positive energy was contagious. She also shared some really good life advice with us.

  • Meeting new people
  • Tours
  • Support
  • Before reaching the city there were issues with timing regarding interviews and placements
  • A couple of my peers thought meals could have been included in the tours to Toledo and Segovia.

Great Experience

This internship program was one to remember. I learned a lot at my job in which I will take into my future career. I also made everlasting connections with my coworkers. Before coming here, I had no experience in my internship field. However, I gained so much knowledge and was supported every step of the way. Learning about the Spanish culture was so fun and exciting. I loved meeting so many new people not only at my job but within the program. Definitely recommend this program if you are thinking about interning abroad!
