Intern in Uruguay. is an independent program whereby candidates gain real international work experience while immersing themselves in another culture. The program begins with a three week intensive Spanish course with local Uruguayan teachers. Candidates will then participate in 4 hour a day internships in small to mid-sized, Uruguayan-owned companies or organisations. Part of the application process is a phone interview to ensure that candidates are placed in the Sector that best corresponds to them. We can usually guarantee placement. The program is not competitive and we place year round, starting the first Monday of each month.

Internships opportunities in Uruguay include: Public Relations, Teaching English, Hospitality, Travel Agency, Manufacturing, Sales, Graphic Design, Printing, Special Events Organizing, Medical and Healthcare, Accounting and Finance.

Participation in this program will massively upgrade your Resume and provide the ability to become fluent in Spanish. All candidates have a Uruguayan Supervisor at their work assignments, plus an English-speaking Intern Advisor living in Montevideo. This is a fairly customized program and process, with anywhere from 3 to 10 candidates starting programs each month. Housing is your own room in a shared apartment or a homestay with a local family ? you choose (please ask for price differences).
