Pharmacy internship in Brazil
Submitted by Marissa - University of South Carolina | August 08, 2017
I had an incredible experience working at a compounding pharmacy in Brazil!!! I learned a lot about an aspect of pharmacy that I was unexposed to, made a bunch of contacts, and improved my Portuguese tremendously. Intern Brazil helped me get the foot in the door to what has allowed me to guarantee an additional internship for the following year! INTERN BRAZIL ROCKS!!!!!
Fashion consulting assistant
Submitted by William Min - Georgetown University | July 27, 2017
Amazing. Worked in an environment in which there were no limits to what I would learn on the next day. If I could measure the amount of knowledge and experience I gained working at FashionRoom SP it would equivalent to a whole year of graduate school at a high-end fashion school. My mentor was called José Xavier Neto, he is one of the biggest name in the Brazilian Fashion Industry.
They are okay...

If you're rich, this is the place for you to go intern at. You have to remember that food and housing are not included and you must pay it separately. Basically, you're paying them to just find you an internship for a high price. The people are very nice and responsive. They also give good life advice to young interns. However, they are a bit disorganized. One of the workers here told me and my grandmother "The internships are paid, the average salary is $400 a month." Those were the person's exact words. A few days before I departed for Brazil, I asked 'Intern-Brazil' what would exact amount I would be paid from my internships and they said that the internship you're doing is unpaid. I was considering to cancel the internship but I had already paid the confirmation fee and bought my flight and had everything set. Therefore, I decided to just go ahead and do the internship and not complain. When I began doing my internship, it was not what I exactly expected. The people I worked with are very generous and nice people. However, some days they didn't speak with me and they did not give me much to do. I was hoping I would have more things to do while I worked. But I wasn't very busy at all.
Also, I really wish that the people who worked for Intern-Brazil would have told me which neighborhoods to stay away from within the city. Since, Brazil is a very dangerous country and the rate of crime is high. Especially in the big city, where crime is much worse. Additionally, they people who worked for 'Intern-Brazil' are locals of the city I went to intern in. Therefore, they know which neighborhoods are dangerous and which are safe. I also wished that they would have told which type of accommodation was the cheapest or had it listed on their website because that would have made my experience in Brazil so much better. However, that did not happen.
In conclusion, my experience wasn't the best compared to other interns. However, I enjoyed some parts of my internships and meeting other interns from the program.
Great internship at communications company in Curitiba, Brazil
Submitted by Emilie Schäfferling - Turiba University | July 27, 2017
I spend nearly a month as an intern at the communications company LFCOM in Curitiba, Brazil and during my month in Brazil I learnt so much. Coming from Northern Europe, Brazil isn't the traditional choice of country to intern in, so I must admit my expectations were low. But boy did I get pleasantly surprised! LFCOM is a company just as modern, liberal and up-to-date as any communications company in Europe. This was definitely the dream internship. Working with three dedicated ladies who did everything they could to make my time in Brazil the best and always looking after me and making sure to tell me when I did a good job. I couldn't have asked for a better place to do my first internship. Even though I was far away from home, they made me feel at home. I can only recommend doing an internship in Brazil, since it is a country that has a lot of potential, dedicated people and amazing culture, despite its reputation in the Western world. The only challenges I met was the fact that most Brazilians do not speak English, so anyone considering going there should bear that in mind. Despite their lacking English skills, Brazilians are the most friendly people you will ever meet, and even though they do not understand your language, they will still try their best to help you, no matter the situation. My month-long internship in Curitiba, Brazil has not only made my resume look a whole lot better, but also opened my eyes to the situation in the BRICS countries and just how misunderstood and interesting they actually are.
