As I drove away from the airport and as my gaze fell on the city of Buenos Aires, I immediately knew that this experience would be eye-opening and unique but I was far from imagining to what extent it would be! Buenos Aires is a dynamic and fascinating city, beautiful during the day and frantic during the night. There is so much to do that you cannot possibly get bored and you will never have enough time to get to fully know it; from museums to parcs, cemeteries to “ferias" and from your office to the “boliches”, be ready to have an amazing time.
And this experience could not have been smoother and as well orchestrated as with Connect 123! The team is fantastic, responding really quickly to emails and questions, helping me find the best and most suited internships, and helping find an accommodation As soon as I landed in Buenos Aires, I had the confirmation I had made the right decision: a ride had been organized to my accommodation, the next day I had an invaluable orientation during which Paula, the amazing (I cannot stress it enough!) program coordinator, told me about the Do and Don’ts of the city, and finally, during my entire time in Argentina, there were weekly events (wine tasting, shows, tours and so many more) to get to know other Connect 123 interns!
I really enjoyed the city and the experience as a whole. I had two internships, one with the Province of Buenos Aires and the other one in a NGO giving business classes to small entrepreneurs and supporting them with microcredits. I really enjoyed both of them as they allowed me to explore and have firsthand experiences in fields I was interested in. My work at the NGO, in underprivileged neighborhoods, led me to see another facet of Buenos Aires that usually gets ignored by tourists and even by locals living in the “microcentro”, giving me a better picture of the diversity and complexity of this city. I got the chance, on top of exploring potential future careers, to discover directly the Argentinian culture, history and people.

Connect-123 was a great experience! I got the chance to experience life abroad, in the beautiful setting of Barcelona, where I could practice my Spanish and get great work experience. I learned a lot about non-profit work and working in a different setting!

I joined Connect-123 because I wanted to experience healthcare abroad; I spent four incredible months in Buenos Aires as an intern with Connect123. During this time I had the opportunity to study Spanish, intern at a public hospital in Buenos Aires, and travel to different regions of Argentina.
What stood out the most for me were the people I met and the experiences I had while working as an intern at the hospital. I have worked as a nurse for the past 10 years and I can honestly say that I gained more insight and knowledge in these past months than I could have ever hoped for. The doctors, residents and hospital staff not only went out of their way to educate and answer any questions I had, but they did it with a positive attitude and a smile on their face, despite my less than perfect Spanish. The experience was eye-opening and enlightening, to say the least! I will be forever grateful for this experience!

My internship in Dublin was more than I expected. I worked for empower studios in balls bridge and learned about office experience. I enjoyed getting to know my boss Aisling and my co worker Bella. They were very helpful in guiding me thru my internship. I would recommend Dublin to anyone who wants to experience somewhere different and to see Dublin in all its beauty and culture.

I just loved Argentina ! The moment I arrived to my living quarters I was in love. The places I saw, the other interns I met, the food, my internship was amazing! I learned so much from being there for 2 months. I learned that I could live, survive in a place that I was unfamiliar in & do what I love. My boss at Estudios Caracol taught me the business side of the media & production side & gave me advice never to place my art in the hands of a business owner. Connect 123 was always checking on me and really cared about how my time there was. The only thing I didn't like was that the company picks you up from the airport, but doesn't drop you back off when you are finished with the program. Other than that Connect 123 is definitely a program I would recommend to others.
