Spanish Companies Internship Program
The Fundación Consejo España-Estados
Unidos, in Madrid, Spain, is a private foundation which brings together
notable representatives from financial, business and professional sectors,
public administration and politics, as well as cultural and academic institutions.
The aim of the Fundación Consejo España-Estados
Unidos is to promote plural dialogue - in economic, financial, cultural,
educational, political and professional terms - between the Spanish and
US civil societies. (To learn more on the Fundación, please visit: www.consespain-usa.org)
This Program offers U.S. citizens, recently
graduated from the United States' best universities (BS, BA, MBA, PHD),
the possibility of having a professional experience in a Spanish company,
board member of the Foundation, in order to provide in-depth knowledge
of their companies, while at the same time offering the opportunity to
learn about Spanish businesses, society, culture and language.
The prestigious companies participating
in the Program are leaders in their respective markets and have affiliates
or interests in the United States. Thus the possibility exists for these
companies to offer full positions in Spain or back in the States, once
the internship is over.
Some of the companies offering internships
are BBVA (one of the main banks in Europe, with wide presence in the south
of the U.S.), Iberdrola (leader in the renewable energies sector) or Ferrovial-Cintra
(biggest operator in civil engineering and construction, awarded with many
public works in the U.S.).
The six-month Program is planned to
begin September 8, 2008, ending on February 28, 2009.
A competitive monthly salary, plus travel
expenses to and from Spain, medical insurance during the duration of the
program and Spanish language lessons if required.
Candidates must be U.S. citizens, have
a good level of written and oral Spanish. They should have graduated by
the start of the program.
A six month student visa.
