HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO FIND AN INTERNSHIP?

It depends when your internship starts. For the internships that start between January and June, it is recommended to apply on our platform 3 months before. Indeed, it is the peak season period and positions are filled qucikly. But no panic, you can contact us any time. We also find last minute internships.
For the other period of the year, 1 month is enough.

WHAT ARE THE MANDATORY DOCUMENTS I NEED FOR MY INTERNSHIP?

It depends on the destination of your internship. For Europe, you will need: a civil liability covering the entire period of your internship, a valid passport or ID, an internship agreement and the European health insurance card. For the countries outside of Europe, you will need: a visa, if required and a valid international health insurance.

I AM NOT AN EUROPEAN CITIZEN BUT I LIVE IN EUROPE FOR MY STUDIES. IS IT POSSIBLE TO APPLY FOR A COMPANY LOCATED IN EUROPE?

Usually there is no problem. But the conditions are different from one country to another. Sometimes, you must justify some criteria. It is important to get information about the country you want to go before processing a recruitment.

I WANT TO DO AN INTERNSHIP ABROAD BUT MY UNIVERSITY/SCHOOL WANTS THE INTERNSHIP AGREEMENT TO BE IN MY MONTHER TONGUE. WHAT SHOULD I DO?
 

Well, it is not the easiest situation… However, if your school has a copy of the internship agreement in English or in the language of the country you want to go, we can always talk to your school and agree on something that will arrange the company and your school.

WHICH DOCUMENTS ARE NEEDED FOR AN INTERNSHIP IN SPAIN?

You will need all the necessary documents for an European country and a NIE (identification number for foreigners). For an internship that last 90 days maximum, you can ask it directly to a Spanish Consulat in your home town. For an internship that last more than 90 days, you will need to do it directly in Spain. But be careful, more and more companies are asking for an internship agreement in Spanish or to fill in an internal document. Make sure that your school will agree to sign another document from the company.

WHAT DOES CIVIL LIABILITY MEAN?

Civil liability is an insurance for damages to third parties. It covers the legal costs, the costs for the health, etc. It is mandatory for all our internships abroad.

The best will be to send it in the language of the country you want to do your internship in. Nevertheless, we also accept English CVs. Just please do not forget to put a professional picture of yourself.
