Intern in Sport
Submitted by Lois - USC | April 02, 2016
During my program I was lucky enough to get involved in the International Cup and travelled to Monaco and Barcelona with some of the younger teams, which was great fun. I wasn't able to speak Italian, but most of the staff spoke great English and the kids were from international schools, so we got along fine. My tasks varied from studying coaching and learning how to deliver sessions during my first month, to planning and delivering sessions during the following two months.
Living in Milan was an interesting experience as the city was a lot smaller than I thought, but it is has some truly beautiful neighborhood - definitely check out Navigli! I really enjoyed Italy, and learnt a great deal about myself, what I am capable of, and will take home some really great memories.

My internship experience has been hands-down the best experience of my life!
Visiting Europe for the first time I knew that I would have some tough calls to make about where and how to spend my time, but London was definitely the right choice. As a city it is crazy busy, there are always thing to do (watch out as it can be expensive), and the people are incredibly friendly, contrary to what I had been led to believe.
Intern in Sport organised my internship at a global sports management company (in licensing), the process was very quick, and I was literally challenged every day.
Working at such a large organisation I learnt how to prioritise tasks, where my strengths lie, and how to develop and build relationships with clients and employees, something I recognise is key to getting ahead in daily office life.
If I could change one thing, I would have booked my accommodation through Intern in Sport, as the option I found for myself was cheaper, but cost me an extra 20 minutes each day on the metro.
If I could do it all over again, I would do it tomorrow!
Will I visit London again? YES!
