See how far you can go
Our international internship programs in Colombia will help you thrive in a fast-paced emerging economy that encourages transformative inter-cultural learning experiences leading to personal, academic, and professional development.
Stand out from the crowd
An internship abroad distinguishes yourself from the competition in an increasingly competitive global labour market. Only a minority of students undertake an internship abroad. It is great way to show employees your level of confidence, interpersonal skills, and initiative before they have even met you. These are three important attributes for employment in any career field.
Expand your global network
An international internship provides you with the opportunity to build a global network. This can introduce you to an entirely new network, and influential industry experts. They will be like-minded individuals, who will be undertaking the same experience as you, which can lead to friendships that will last a lifetime, something which is invaluable for your future.
Personal, academic, and professional growth
Transformative inter-cultural learning experiences through our internships will undoubtedly lead to personal, academic, and professional development. Jumping into a new culture is not easy, but a challenge well-worth undertaking. You will push the boundaries of what you are capable of and grow in independence, giving you confidence to take on challenges in the future.
Make an impact
Intern Colombia's first-class internship programs in Latin America provides you with the opportunity to leave a real and lasting impact. Our internships are an essential part of short-term and medium-term projects leading to concrete positive impacts for the local economy and local communities in Colombia.
Become a Global Citizen
Expand your cross-cultural understanding and increase your global awareness by doing an internship abroad, giving you the opportunity to better understand your cultural values and beliefs in a new context.
Live like a local : discover a new country
This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to immerse yourself into a completely new culture whilst at the same time developing your career orientated skills. You will be able to involve yourself with the local community and ingrain yourself with people that live in Colombia, resulting in a unique and authentic experience as a citizen rather than a visitor.
Earn academic credit & fulfil academic goals (if applicable)
If you’re still at university Intern Colombia encourages students to connect their internship experience to their academic life and goals. Our internships programs can provide you with academic credit, and can also form part of your thesis.
Improve your language skills or learn a new language
Full cultural immersion is the best way to become fluent in a second language. Most employers now favour employees who possess foreign language skills over those who don’t. Whether you become fluent or are just able to pick up the basics, your language skills will make you more marketable to future employers.
