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.
