My Internship at Intern Brazil! / Mis prácticas en Intern Brazil!
Submitted by Ana - International Business Student | November 01, 2017
I had the opportunity to do my internship directly with Intern Brazil and it was the best experience I could have had!
At Intern Brazil I worked in the area of human resources and business development (international associations). My work was quite fun and multitasking. I interviewed candidates from all around the world and evaluated their profile as interns; I contacted Spanish-speaking embassies; I interviewed CEOs of multinational companies and also contacted and managed partnerships with universities around the world. All this allowed me to develop my communication skills; increase my confidence, security, and proactivity; I really learned the value of teamwork and business culture; and above all, I grew up personally and professionally. Ah! Of course, something very important, in just more than 3 months of my experience, I was able to travel around Brazil and experience the culture!
I am very happy with this opportunity! I feel today, the luckiest participant! Thanks to Marcio, Yessica and Nando for making this experience possible for me. Thaís, Caxi, Vanessa, Cassiano, Pri and Gui thank you so much for your friendship and support.
Tuve la oportunidad de realizar mis prácticas profesionales directamente con Intern Brazil y fue la mejor experiencia que pude haber tenido!
En Intern Brazil trabajé en el área de recursos humanos y desarrollo de negocios (asociciones internacionales). Mi trabajo fue bastante divertido y multitarea. Entrevistaba candidatos de todo el mundo y evaluaba su perfil como practicantes; contacté embajadas hispanohablantes; tube entrevistas con CEOs de empresas a nivel internacional y además contacté y gestioné alianzas con universidades del mundo entero. Todo esto me permitió desarrollar mis habilidades comunicativas; incrementar mi confianza, seguridad y proactividad; aprendí realmente la importancia del trabajo en equipo y la cultura empresarial; y sobre todo crecí a nivel personal y profesional. Ah! Por supuesto, algo muy importante, en un poco más de 3 meses, pude viajar y experiementar gran parte de la cultura brasileña.
Estoy muy feliz de haber tenido esta oportunidad! Me siento hoy, la participante más afortunada! Gracias a Marcio, Yessica y Nando por hacer posible esta experiencia para mi. A Thaís, Caxi, Vanessa, Cassiano, Pri y Gui por su amistad, apoyo y los aprendizajes compartidos.
Los llevo a todos en el corazón!
Muito Obrigada Intern Brazil!

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.
