My experience with the Interngroup in Madrid has been rewarding and fulfilling, both in terms of the social encounters I have made and the professional skills I have gained. Whilst studying Media and Communications in the UK, I completed a PR and marketing internship with a venture and law company, as I am passionate about the PR industry and want to pursue a career in this field. While my tasks initially included social media management, they have gradually expanded to include creating LinkedIn and Instagram ads, writing the newsletter and blog, but also contacting newspapers to place our content! It is true that the internship in Madrid has far exceeded my expectations and my previous concerns about making friends in a country where I don't speak the language or adapting to this new working environment were swept away as soon as I met my new flatmates and started working. The intergroup did a fantastic job of integrating me and I never felt alone or left out. On the contrary, I felt like I never had a minute to myself and never had enough time to do all the projects and plans I wanted to do! If I were to give any advice to any new interns or those considering applying, it would be to start the programme with an open mind, positivity but also perseverance and hard work from day one, an attitude that eventually allowed me to extend my contract with my company and gradually be offered more responsibilities! The social aspect of the programme and the new bounds I have created have made my experience one that I will never forget and contributed to shape me as a more mature and fulfilled individual.
