- Program Description:
- YES Internships are designed to combine the benefits of study programs, traditional internships, and international experiences in a single program. Students spend the first week of the program in an orientation which includes a language course, resume and interview preparation, interviews, and work placement.
Throughout the duration of the program, students stay primarily in Seville and participate in the local culture on a daily basis. This provides for a genuine international experience and accelerated and effective language learning. Developing and using your new language skills in an everyday work setting will allow you to advance them to the next level. Interning abroad will also allow you to not only interact with people from a different culture, but to work with them. Work environments are always complex and require effective communication. This is especially true in an international and mutlicultural work environment. Learning about and experiencing Spanish work culture will help you to better understand American work culture. Any experience abroad will enhance your resume, but gaining international work experience adds something extra. In a foreign environment, you will need to adapt and be flexible in order to work effectively with others. Flexibility and adaptability are vital skills to have in today´s fast-paced world of work and are universally valued by employers. Interning abroad, you will gain contacts which will benefit you in the future in a variety of ways. Having an international network will provide you with impressive references for work at home or abroad.
