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.
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.
Destinations in Latin America
We’re the feet-on-the-street, live-here, work-here organization.
Costa Rica has one of the most advanced economies and one of the best climates in Latin America, making it a preferred destination for interns looking for a unique experience abroad.
Guatemala’s population consists of approximately 50% Spanish and 50% indigenous cultures, so your internship in Antigua is always an authentic cultural immersion experience.
With constant improvements to the Peruvian economic, social, and political sectors, Peru has rapidly become a major leader in South America, making it a great country to work as an intern.
