Sponsored by the City of Buenos Aires

A thriving hub for internship opportunities, from film and photography, to sports management to law, Buenos Aires is one of the most popular destinations in Latin America for young people to study and work.

Although most internships are generally unpaid, their worth isn’t any less than a regular, everyday paid job. In fact, an internship can give you some of the best opportunities to gain that all important, first-hand experience needed to get your foot in the job door.

An internship allows you to develop your unique skill set, network and create professional relationships and make your CV stand out amongst the crowd. Interning abroad also offers a little extra pizzazz; you can learn a new language, immerse yourself in a new culture, and see the world all at the same time.

Most internships usually last at least four weeks, with a minimum age requirement depending on the internship. It’s also important to note that, although Spanish is the most dominant language in Buenos Aires, there are English-speaking internship opportunities available, leaving you to spruce up your Spanish speaking skills at your own pace.
