Spend eight weeks interning remotely for a company located in Montevideo. As the capital of Uruguay, Montevideo has been ranked as one of the best places to live in South America and headquarters Mercosur and ALADI, Latin America’s trading blocs.
Interns will work remotely with a team based in Montevideo and will have frequent engagement with their supervisor and working teams. Interns will also interact frequently with our internship provider, Puentes Abroad, who will coordinate additional internship oversight, career coaching, and cultural seminars.
During this summer experience, you will apply the theories and concepts you’ve learned in class to a professional international working environment, learning and practicing the customs, behaviors and norms of another culture.
The skills you develop on this internship will transform you as a leader and give you a distinct competitive advantage in the job market. Along with practicing fundamental workplace skills, you will prove that you can work in a diverse environment, adapt to change, be a flexible problem solver and integrate successfully into a diverse and cross-cultural team—all high-demand skills for today’s globally minded employers.
You will work remotely Monday through Friday for eight weeks at your placement company as an intern for 25-30 hours per week. Given this is a virtual internship program, your work schedule may vary depending on your project and team needs.
