Internships in Argentina
Connecting Worlds can organise internships for anyone interested in gaining some kind of experience or training in Argentina. The number of placements for our internships is not limited and almost every field of study is available.
The idea is for interns to gain valuable working experience for their CVs or perhaps even for university credit. Unlike a volunteer, the idea is that interns learn valuable skills or techniques which will serve for future employment opportunities within a particular industry or trade.
An internship organised by Connecting Worlds provides interns with valuable working opportunities in real work environments, as well as the chance to significantly improve Spanish language skills.
The internships offered by Connecting Worlds are non-paid due to strict regulations of the Argentine Government regarding the work of foreigners in local companies. The other reason is that the main objective of the Internship is the international education and the learning experience.
Payment is separated into two stages. The first is the registration fee which you send through with your application. The second fee — known as the program fee — is due once your internship has been completely arranged. Internships can last for anything between two to six months and multiple internships in multiple destinations is also possible.
You can do an Internship in Argentina into these areas:
Advertising / Design
Business & Engineering
ESL Teaching English
Film and TV Production
Tourism / Hospitality
To be part of a internship program you must be 18 years-old or over. You’ll be required to have adequate travel insurance against sickness, accident and 3rd party liability.
An intermediate understanding of Spanish is extremely helpful. We encourage interns to take advantage of the very affordable language lessons offered by our partner staff in Bariloche or Buenos Aires. Many of those who have taken part in our projects in the past told us that taking these lessons helped them a lot in everyday volunteer work and to communicate with locals.
CW offers a very attractive and varied number of projects placed both in Buenos Aires and in Bariloche.
Buenos Aires, the capital city of the country, is world famous for its rich and vibrant cultural activity and its European architecture and lifestyle.
This huge city’s high quality entertainment, gastronomic and tourism industries are well renowned, and Tango music and dance shows, football matches, music concerts, theatre plays and cabaret shows are just a few examples of the cultural entertainment you can enjoy there.
Porteños (Buenos Aires born citizens) are proud, friendly, outgoing and passionate people; while gauchos (rural people of the Pampas farming and cattle lands), though also proud in a shyer way, are very hospitable, sensitive and charming.
You can start any day you choose and stay from one week on, for as long as you wish.
A pick up service at the airport is included in the program fee and clear instructions on how to reach the pick up location is detailed in the Pre-departure guide delivered to interns by CW once their place in the program is secured.
Volunteers and interns will be driven from the airport to one of Buenos Aires best Youth Hostels, where they’ll meet a member of our local team who will fill them in with basic tips on what to expect of their experience, general roiles, regional and local customs, and provide them with some useful travelling advice. Every intern will receive a welcome pack that contains a local sim phone card, a map and a transports guide.
Our Volunteer House is strategically located in a very nice area of the city and a short commuting distance from the programs placements and most of the many attractions of this unique cosmopolitan center. CW volunteers are placed together in this homely, comfortable and well equipped House. It has free WiFi and great facilities for volunteers, including a roof-top terrace and barbecue area, communal kitchen and living areas, hammocks and a TV room.
Our Volunteer House is a perfect base for your stay in Buenos Aires and an excellent place to make new friends.
You will be provided with groceries to make a continental style breakfast every day, which is prepared in the kitchen/dining room of the volunteer house and includes toast and spreads, cereal and fruit.This arrangement leave volunteers free to enjoy the delicious and Argentinean cuisine in the wide and varied offer of restaurants, pizzerias, parrillas (barbecue restaurants), cafés and pubs scattered all over the place.
On volunteers’ special request and with notice given in advance, CW can arrange for private accommodation and individual bedrooms in family homes located in the fanciest neighborhoods of Buenos Aires city (Recoleta, Palermo, Belgrano, etc). The fees for this accommodation do not include any meals but volunteers can use the kitchen facilities and / or make their own arrangements with their host once in site and at an additional cost.
Accommodation and meal arrangements for the program in Bariloche will be described below that program.
