I had a wonderful experience

My internship has finished and I have to say it that I had a wonderful experience, it improved my Russian being around Russian native speakers that didn't speak much English. The art gallery I interned in was like a big family and they welcome with open arms I will keep collaborating with them. I thank ProfIntern team for taking care of my placement and to be very open and kind to me. I think that ProfIntern is a great company and I'm looking forward to see you soon next year !

An unforgettable experience

I was looking for an internship prior to starting graduate school and I had always wished to learn Russian and I found ProfIntern to fit all my criteria's perfectly, especially my wish to have an internship in finance. I stayed in St. Petersburg for 4 months while I took classes at Derzhavin Institute for 2 months. The classes were excellent with a great community behind it. I only wish I was able to do it for all 4 months instead of just 2. The Internship itself, while not an internship like one would be in the USA, was highly enjoyable and I learned some new things that will help me in my future career. My boss and colleagues were also incredibly friendly and a joy to be around. Since I did not know Russian, I could not take as much out of it as someone normally would so I definitely recommend getting to know some Russian prior to the internship but do not let your lack of Russian discourage you either. St. Petersburg is a beautiful city and has a great wealth of culture to enjoy. I would just say that you should not let your misconceived notions about Russia prevent you from an unforgettable time in St. Petersburg or Moscow.

Fantastic experience

My internship was in a great, relevant field that would have been near impossible to access otherwise. Living arrangements were convenient for both work and leisure. Maria is great at helping with logistical problems and easing the transition between different cultures, and is dedicated to making your stay enjoyable and safe.

Nice time in St. Petersburg

Awesome time in Saint Petersburg. Some quiproquo with the internship assignement in the beginning. This city is amazing. Try not to love it, I dare you. Oh and go to Opera, never ever forget to go to opera.

A Russian experience

I was not deceived by my choice. The city is one of the most impressive place I have ever seen, people are great and cultural life is unlimited. Luckily also the weather was much better here than anywhere else in Europe. At the office, I had the opportunity to discover another way of doing things and working, on issues that really interested me.
