I wish I had the words to describe how impactful this internship was. I was living and working in Madrid Spain for 6 months for an International Business internship. Something I am so happy I was able to do while I was abroad was to completely invest 110% myself into the country I was living in. One piece of advice I would have is do not be afraid to learn the language, experience the culture and get to know the locals. I met so many incredible people from Madrid and life-long friends I know I will have from here on out. I also met so many awesome people but struggled living abroad because they let the fear of not knowing the language or living somewhere new scare them. Stop. Do not be one of those people. Take chances. Do things that are out of your comfort zones. And be present in the moment. You will be so happy you did once the internship is over.

One of my favorite memories was traveling alone throughout Europe when given the opportunity. I did make a lot of awesome friends, however, I had plans of traveling alone and I am so happy I did. You learn so much about yourself when you travel alone. You get quality alone time with yourself and can focus on you and your needs. You meet so many great people along the way and can see the world around you without distractions. If I had any advice for future participants, take a trip alone to experience the world around you.

Now that I am done with my internship, I am looking doing my Master's degree in Madrid in International Business and I am so excited to continue this experience and hopefully move back to my favorite city in the word.

What one pays for, essentially, with Adelante, that one couldn't find by themselves, is great contacts. It's difficult to find internships in other countries for a variety of reasons and Adelante does all the hard work for you. Adelante also helps to provide an essential structure to this internship, defining the number of work hours, the assigned tasks and expectations. This is incredibly important, as so much of the experience is unstructured and up to the volunteer.

How can this program be improved?
Making the language classes optional.

I had a great time during my 5-month internship in Madrid. The Adelante team placed me at a top firm in Madrid that was a perfect fit for what I had asked. I grew a lot as a professional, met some really amazing people and saw some incredible places in Spain and Europe. My international experience helped my resumé stand out to prospective employers and I landed my first post-graduation job as soon as I got back home. Thanks to the Adelante team for their amazing service and I would definitely recommend this program to anyone!

How can this program be improved?
The apartment has an amazing location in Puerta del Sol but it could use some updates. Other than that the program and the service was amazing!

Interning in Madrid was one of the most exciting and enriching experiences of my life. I learnt so much during my internship and met incredible people along the way. It helped me figure out that this is exactly what I want to do as a career. The Adelante staff could not have been more supportive, we had our every need met. The language school here was also amazing and most definitely helped me improve my Spanish in the two weeks. The other interns I was living with were all wonderful people and I have definitely made friends for life. I could not recommend this more!

I interned at a small company based out of Madrid that specialize in selling spare parts for high tech manufacturing equipment. I enrolled in the program somewhat last minute because other study abroad plans fell through. From the get-go the Adelante staff was incredibly accommodating and helped find an internship related to my major (Supply Chain Management). The people I lived with in the program were incredibly fun and we had a great time going out and exploring Madrid. The language school places you in a class suited to your Spanish ability and it helped me remember the Spanish I had learned in high school. The internship itself was a really fun and engaging time and was very flexible regarding hours and having some days off for travel. I recently accepted an internship for this summer with a large sportswear company within the US and I drew heavily on my Madrid internship during the interview process. All in all, I am incredibly thankful that my other study abroad plans fell through because not only was this cheaper, I think I gained more and it made me a better student and future employee.
