WHAT TO
EXPECT

FROM YOUR INTERNATIONAL INTERNSHIP

International internships give globally-minded people access to international work experience in Latin America. Internship placements are built around professional assignments of 4 weeks or more where interns get a sense of what living and working abroad is all about. International internships help you learn, build your network, and grow as a professional.

Living and working abroad can be a humbling experience that pushes you beyond your comfort zone. You learn to live like a local not just travel like a tourist! Most importantly, you meet all kinds of people from all walks of life—local professionals, fellow interns, and expats living abroad… all of them from different backgrounds and experience levels that help you broaden your horizons and world view.

Maximo Nivel is a local organization based in Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Peru. Our role is to bring structure, organization, and quality service to your internship program. We partner with local companies and organizations including small businesses, private schools, boutique hotels, tour companies, hospitals, clinics, and many more.

The Maximo Nivel team is multi-lingual, educated, and very well-traveled. Our staff in each country is approximately 65% local people and 35% international people. This means, we easily manage the cultural and language barriers that often get in the way, and at the same time we are familiar with both the local culture and your home country. We invests a great deal of time and money to build our employer and internship network, recruit interns, and manage logistics such as airport pick-up, accommodations, meals, embassy relations, emergency plans, and so on. We also continually monitor in-field conditions to ensure your safety.

Please note, the minimum length for an international internship is 4 weeks. If you enroll for 4 to 7 weeks, this is referred to as a “Practicum.” If you enroll for 8 weeks or more, this is called an “Internship.” The difference is simply in the way we refer to your program.
