Intern Experience: Jackie's Non-Profit Internship in Barcelona, Spain

Karl Jacobs | December.26.2019

Millions of tourists flock to Barcelona every year to enjoy the sun, city, beach, and food. Life in the Catalan capital promotes a unique, cosmopolitan lifestyle.

This past fall, Jackie B. a senior at Texas A&M University, experienced this lifestyle and learned more about the non-profit industry with her internship in Barcelona.

Choosing a city in Spain was definitely difficult. After researching Spain I knew Barcelona would be the best choice for me because of its cosmopolitan lifestyle. This city is urban and new but it has never forgotten its history. The city pride here isn't like anything I have ever experienced."

Intern Experience: Natalie's Event Internship in Paris

Karl Jacobs | November.26.2019

For many people around the world, Paris is an iconic city of romance, passion, elegance, and beauty.

Our interns arrive with bright eyes and big dreams, and Natalie C., a student at the University of Michigan, was no exception:

“For me, it’s always been Paris. As a little girl, I was twirling around in my ballet classes and reciting French phrases to my dance teacher. Growing up, I had Eiffel Tower posters up all over my room. In high school, I fell in love with the French language and my class trip to Quebec firmly cemented a dream to see Paris for myself.”

Her dream came true this past summer when she landed an internship in event management in Paris, France!
