GET PRACTICAL WORK EXPERIENCE ABROAD

Careers are more global in scope and content than ever before. You need to develop a whole new set of professional skills to ensure your success and to set yourself apart. Employers are looking for people with international experience. Living and working internationally shows you have a more global perspective. It shows you are flexible and able to adapt to unexpected situations. You demonstrate that you can effectively deal cross-culturally and work with people from all backgrounds. Employers know you’re ready to accept challenges and take initiative.

Get practical work experience, develop Spanish language skills, and build your international network. An international internship definitely helps you standout in the eyes of future employers and it can also determine future studies and career direction. At Maximo Nivel, internship programs start every Monday throughout the year. Internships placements are available across a wide range of career fields in Costa Rica, Guatemala, or Peru. If you’re an aspiring international intern, you can choose from a 4-week practicum, an 8-week internship, or you can organize your experience abroad for up to 24-weeks!

Internship Advisor
One of the unique things about doing your internship abroad with Maximo Nivel is that you are assigned a dedicated Internship Advisor. Your advisor meets with you for designated meetings and at other times whenever needed. Your advisor kicks things off with a get-to-know you meeting to help set you up for success and explain your program. You then meet with your advisor at least 2 more times including a mid-program meeting and again at the end of your internship to review your final project and to ensure all university requirements (if any) are met.

International Internships VS Volunteer Abroad

INTERNSHIP vs. VOLUNTEERING

At Maximo Nivel, internship placements are distinct and are organized separately from volunteer programs. Unlike many other study abroad organizations, your international internship is NOT interchangeable with a volunteer abroad program. Internships are designed to give you professional work experience, build your Spanish language proficiency, and expand your career network. On the other hand, volunteering abroad is about community service, and these projects are focused on helping in-need and under-funded programs and people. Both internships and volunteer programs are important, but each program focuses on different outcomes.
