The best experience of my life

Travelling to Madrid last summer was undoubtedly the best decision I have ever taken. I have always been keen on gaining cutting edge work experience as well as travel the world, and The Intern Group offered just that. I was warmly welcomed at the airport by a nice and friendly taxi driver who drove me to the apartment and even helped me carry my bags up to the flat ! (that's real customer service right there!).
Talking of the placement itself, TIG placed me with a marketing agency where I learned and developed a wide range of skills in the area of advertising and social media marketing. The close cooperation with the CEO of the company himself shattered the power distance and empowered me to fulfill my potential. Furthermore, we were housed in a cosy apartment in the heart of Madrid near Puerta Del Sol within walking distance from shops, bars, gyms and popular tourist attractions. I can still remember myself walking down Calle Del Arenal all the way down to the Palace via Opera train station while window shopping.
The social activities were just amazing!! TIG took us for a day trip to Toledo and we also visited el Estadio Santiago Bernabeu. It was a huge privilege to visit such a historic city and see where the likes of Zidane and Ronaldo (the real one, LOL) played and made history.


The only downside was that I am a Barcelona fan and my fellow Barca supporters now think I am a traitor ! Well, I think that's something we'll have to resolve and debate internally LOL. With the Barcelona programme now being launched, I will have a chance to clear this up with my boys.

Fulfilling Experience! Totally over-exceeded my expectations.

Hi all! My name is Isabel, I recently graduated from my bachelors degree in Economics. I had the opportunity to do an 6 week internship in Dublin (starting in Nov 2017) and if I can describe in one sentence this experience I would say it is one of the most rewarding ones I have ever had.

First of all, Dublin is such a splendid city to live in. It is secure, open minded and very beautiful. When I live there I enjoyed so much the Pub Culture. People are always so nice and it gives you great chances to meet amazing people. I had the opportunity to meet lifetime friends (this definitely one of the best things of my internship!).

Second, the position I had in a successful Recruitment company was very enriching. As my previous experience was in Business Consulting, I was able to learn more from it! My coworkers were always so nice. I was able to observe their duties in a close way, which allowed me to perform better every day. Also, my boss' main goal was for me to take the best out of the period I was interning with them. We, as a team, always tried to achieve the goals we set at the beginning of the week. In this way, I could develop better my skills. I got an insight in how an international company works, got great s for future opportunities, expand my abilities in different areas of the company (such as recruitment, compliance, research, etc.) and increased my confidence when dealing with all kind of people.

Third, after the 6 week internship was over both the company and myself were very sad to stop working together. We kept in touch couple weeks after and then the great idea of working remotely emerged! Now, the company sent me a computer from Dublin to Mexico (where I am currently living) and we are still working together. Working remotely from such long distance is a very different experience but even more rewarding, as the company is always trying to look the best for both sides.

Finally, I couldn't be more happy for my decision of joining the Intern Group! Dublin team is lovely, always giving support to the interns and trying their best for us to get the real Irish experience. I highly recommend this program, I am sure every single one of you is going to grow in so many ways and this is going to develop greatly your true self for the future.

Thank you for reading this! I believe in your abilities to choose right!

I wish you all the best!

Isabel

A blessing from heaven!

I did a lot of research and praying before applying to The Intern Group and I must say this was the most well rounded company out there! Your money is well invested here. EVERY part of my experience in Madrid was beyond belief. From my amazing flat and mates, the location, work, activities, social life, and safety, it was all such an amazing experience. I honestly cannot think of any complaints that were not addressed or resolved. Of course life isn’t perfect but the Madrid team with Lalita and everyone on her team really made it feel like it was! All the friends I made on this trip are planning on going back just as I am! Matter fact one of my flat mates is doing a semester in Spain as I write this! Haha definitely became second home to me and I pray to God I have an opportunity to go soon! I can only say that I loved every single part of Madrid and The Intern Group. I had a couple college peers who also worked with them and all their comments were very positive! Highly Highly Highly Recommend!!! #Madrid #TIG

Best decision and summer ever

The Intern Group was the best choice I could have made. You have a full and amazing experience professionally and socially. I got to make great s at work and friends that will last a life time. Madrid is an excellent city, since you have a very rich culinary, cultural, natural, urban experience. The Intern Group staff were always willing to help and make us feel safe. I remember I got really sick and my throat hurt really bad and I got in touch with Lalita and she help me get a doctors appointment and even arranged for me to miss work one day so that I could rest and feel better; she really made it feel like I was at home.
Comparing my Internship with some friends that got Internships in other programs or from their schools, this was by far the best. I had the opportunity to work with the CEO of the company I was interning for. He assigned me a project and we had a meeting twice a week, also he made it very clear that any doubt I had I should e-mail him and it would be perfectly fine. I had a very enriching experience and learned a lot. I 100% recommend this program, and if it happens that you're not happy or comfortable at your work place, which I doubt it happens, you can e-mail them and The Intern Group will find a solution for you.

Would not recommend it to others

I found the staff at the Intern group Madrid to be extremely unhelpful; from the visa application to my time in Madrid. First of all, they never mentioned that we would have to pay a deposit on arrival. Then the flat I was put in was awful. On my first day, I had problems getting in and when I tried to call the emergency number, nobody picked up. Both the girls I lived with had problems with their employers and the group did nothing to help. In fact, they made the situation worse. Similarly, they promise that where you live won't be too far from your work place but it took me an hour to commute everyday. I emailed them to complain and got no response. Honestly, I think this whole thing is a complete waste of money as you don't get any value for it. I could go on and on how poor the program. The only plus is that you meet some really nice people there and the social scene is A1.

    Dear Osasu, thank you for your feedback. We are glad to hear that you met some really nice people and that you enjoyed the social aspect of the program.
