Are you a student, a recent graduate or a young person looking for a vocational training experience abroad but you are not eligible for an Erasmus+ Traineeship? Don't worry, you have the opportunity to get an internship or a placement in Canary Islands relevant to your future career.
Getting vocational experience abroad will help you to gain the linguistic and job related skills that employers are looking for: due to the high competitiveness of the today's labour market, having an international internship is one of the best choice for your prospective career.
Actually, training abroad is about much more than a work experience: during an internship abroad, you will have to face both personal and professional challenges, and the payoff of this process will be enormous in terms of abilities gained. Intercultural communication and language skills are essential in the modern professional world, so employers will really appreciate your past experience abroad. Moreover, by leaving your comfort zone to immerse yourself in an entirely new culture, you will discover who you are really and what you are capable of. For all those reasons, it would be not wrong to say that the travel and life experience acquired through internships abroad is probably even more important than the professional experience itself.
Internships opportunities in Canary Islands with INTERMOBEX
In the frame of Mobility Experiences for work and training, INTERMOBEX offers two main opportunities:
Internships: short periods of professional experience during which you'll be working as a normal employee of the hosting organization, having a taste of what real work is like; this kind of experience can help you make professional contacts, develop soft skills and improve your competencies and abilities. Duration: from 1 to 6 months
Placements: long periods of professional experience, normally part of a course of study, even if it's not always possible to complete placements abroad (consult your academic or placement adviser for more information about the requirements for your placement). Anyway, even if your course of study doesn’t include a mandatory placement as part of the course, you can choose to have a volunteer placement (both in your country and abroad) compatibly with your studies. Duration: from 6 to 12 months
By counting on strong entrepreneurial partnerships in Canary Islands, INTERMOBEX is able to find the most appropriate hosting company for internships and placements according to applicants’ CV, education, language knowledges and previous work experiences.
