Great opportunities, low cost of living
When choosing a continent and country for your internship abroad, then Latin America would be probably the wisest choice. It might not be the first and most obvious choice. It definitely is not much explored yet, but doing an internship in Latin America will give you a ton of extra benefits.
The rising star in South America that has shown the biggest growth and development in the past decades definitely is Colombia. It is a country where you instantly feel at home. The local people are extremely welcoming and helpful and proud to show you their rich cultural heritage. And the cost of living is very low compared to North America and Europe, which will save you quite a bit of money that you can spend on fun and leisure, when doing an internship in Colombia.
The big cities are breathing business culture and the entrepreneurial spirit is strongly developed, as a result of many local government programs. The internationalisation has attracted many foreign companies to Colombia and mainly to Medellin and Bogota. The need for English speakers has grown rapidly and foreign student education levels are highly valued by Colombian companies. This offers fantastic opportunities for you, students and graduates, to realise an exciting international professional experience.
Doing an internship in Colombia is also the best choice if you are interested in getting proficient in Spanish, as the Colombian accent is the most neutral Spanish accent in the world. Paisa Internship offers all candidates who choose to do a full time internship of around 5 to 6 months, the possibility of completing a Spanish language course during their internship in Colombia. We offer Spanish classes as an addition to your internship and in some cases, a Spanish course is included in the internship by the hiring company.
