  • Nicole

    Initially, I took a leap of faith by trusting a company to find suitable employment and accommodations for me in a country I had never visited before. Global Experiences went above and beyond my expectations by matching me with a wonderful internship with a beautiful and convenient apartment, and ample social excursions. I left Barcelona feeling like I experienced everything I could dream of, opened my eyes to a new way of life, and learned more about myself and the world around me.

  • Shannon

    I loved every bit of the internship from my apartment to my roommates and my work. I made lifelong friends and know that if I ever needed assistance or have a question with my new career than I always contact my old employer. Having Global Experience on my resume has been great for gaining interest of possible future employers therefore landing interviews more frequently.

    This experience has helped me both realize my professional and personal goals. I am definitely even more confident to return to Europe for work or school. I am eager to go home and continue working on my language skills. I think that the experiences from traveling so independently will be very valuable in a professional setting. I look forward to applying for more advanced jobs now thanks to what I’ve learned in this internship.

What to expect from your Internship Program in BarcelonaWhat to expect from your Internship Program in Barcelona

I bet that you’re wondering what students experience day to day during their internship in Spain, and I want to give you a sneak peek! Internships in Barcelona are for university and college students, as well as recent graduates looking to transition from a classroom into their career. The program provides an opportunity to be involved in one of Europe’s most international and vibrant cities, where you can thrive off of the energy of the city and its people all while having the support of a well established and trusted international organization.

Along with your fellow interns on the program you will also connect with local professionals in your career field at your internship placement, as well as those in the broader community through our career and social events. You’ll find that your work atmosphere is much more casual in Barcelona than many other global cities. Dress codes are rarely formal and the organizational structure of many companies is not very hierarchical. It’s also a welcoming, inclusive culture where most colleagues eat meals together which helps interns acclimate to their new team and get to spend time learning about the local culture. Since lunch is late in the day (typically 2pm) and dinner is as well (typically 9-10pm) most people take time after work to enjoy a stroll, work out, go to the market and wind down.

Being in such a vivacious, collaborative culture is step one to expanding your network, enhancing your skill-set and creating the experience of a lifetime. Viva Barcelona!
