I learned a lot during my internship experience in Madrid the summer of 2016. This opportunity helped me improve and develop my working attitude and skills, and now I understand what it is like to be in the workplace and how people work.
My experience at Attitude Asesores in Madrid was amazing because I learned a lot of new things about finance and investing. I learned a little bit from every department of the office, from how to invest in the stock market to capital risk. I had the opportunity of being at most of the meetings that they held during my internship, and I even made an important presentation of a new project to future investors!
Doing an internship is something that everyone should do. This will help you to know what are you really interested in and what you really want to do in life. Internships are the best way to have a professional experience in a field that you are interested in.
The SPAN 295 course, “Spanish in the Workplace”, was crucial for me to reflect on my internship. It is great to do an internship but it is better if you can meditate about what you do at the office. Professor Rafael Cabañas Alamán, who provided amazing support throughout the internship, really helped me think about my work experience at Attitude. The class was also a great way to learn vocabulary that is used at the workplace.
