Intern in Madrid is an independent program whereby candidates gain real international work experience while immersing themselves in another culture.

The program begins with a two week intensive Spanish course with local Spanish teachers. Candidates will then participate in 4 hour a day internships in small to mid-sized Spanish operated companies or organizations. 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. Choose from a 1 to 6 month program.

Internships in Madrid include: Marketing and Public Relations, International Business, Consulting, Import/Export, Teaching English, Translation, Social Work and Psychology, Graphic Design, Information Technology, Tourism, Accounting/Finance, Journalism and Law.

Participation in this program will massively upgrade your resume and provides the opportunity to become fluent in Spanish. All candidates have a Spanish Supervisor at their work assignments, plus an English-speaking Intern Advisor living in the city. 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 with other Adelante candidates or local Spanish people - you choose.

The program includes: pre-departure orientation, airport pickup on arrival, accommodation for the duration of the program, 2 weeks of intensive Spanish classes, internship placement and in-country Director.
