SIU Talk - Travelingua

SIU Talk – Travelingua, Opening Doors to Employment in the USA

 

Travelingua is a Spanish organization that works with American companies in order to provide students with Internship programs and employment opportunities in the USA. The company works to organize these internships and make them accessible for students from all over the world. These internships encompass a wide range of positions, such as working at camps, to working in amusement parks, or even working alongside top level executives of certain businesses. Most internships take place during the summer months, with some being year round.

Travelingua aims to ease the process by taking care of the visa that is needed for foreigners in order to work in the USA, along with providing students with health insurance, a 24/7 help system, and many other services. Students or recent graduates now have an easy, helpful way to find internships and work programs within the United States that can help them to build their future career plans.

During the SIU Talk – Employment and Internships in the USA, Lucía Viudes from Travelingua was able to convey the company’s main goal, and it is a strong one. Internships are a helpful tool before entering today’s competitive job market. Having practical, hands-on experience will separate tentative job candidates, making students appear much more attractive to potential employers. The fact that Travelingua takes care of the entire visa process is also an important one, as it is the hardest part of being able to work in the United States for non-nationals.Students are also granted a grace period after their internship in order to travel around the United States.

Students, both American and non-American, should undoubtedly take advantage of this wonderful opportunity, as they can have the best summer of their life while working and preparing for their future.

We are extremely grateful to our hardworking Career Services Department for putting together this informative SIU Talk.

Protocol Workshop Madrid

Protocol and Professional Self-Image Workshop

 

The students at Schiller’s Madrid Campus had the chance to attend a workshop on Protocol and Professional Self-Image prepared by our Career Services Department and led by the Adecco company, the largest staffing firm in the world and a Fortune 500 company. The speaker, Isaya Chacon, is an Independent Consultant for Development and Training. 

 

One of our International Business students, Lucia Martin, tells us about her experience at the workshop:

The workshop on Protocol and Self Image aimed at teaching us the importance of dressing and acting in an appropriate way in the professional world. We learned the difference that the length of a skirt or the buttoning of a jacket can make and how what we wear should be consistent to what we are trying to transmit. To prove this point, we were divided in teams and challenged to create the best and the worst professional look we could, so we would see for ourselves the way we would react to each of them. 

 

However, we didn’t focus only on clothes. The workshop also addressed the attention we should give to our body language: our posture, the way we talk, the way we look, etc. Our image is what ultimately represents us, it is our cover letter and it gives more information about us that anything we might say. 

 

We are our own brand and if we want to sell it, we need to show how confident, effective and great that brand is.

Amazon Internship

One of our recent International Business Students, Christian Corcuera, has just begun his internship at amazon.es . He recently came by the Madrid campus in order to give us the inside scoop of what his experience has been so far. Let’s see what Christian has to say:

“Four years ago I started my very first class at Schiller’s Madrid campus. During the entirety of my Bachelor’s degree I have had the opportunity to be at both Madrid and Heidelberg campuses. During my experience at Schiller I have learned so much more than I ever thought I would. The diverse student body, the helpful professors, that even become your friends, really make a difference. The small class sizes  helped me to  focus and go more in depth with the  course material.

To a great extent, these four years at Schiller have helped me to become a better person. All of the knowledge I have gained, and the ability to study one class per month have helped me to truly understand each class and become a master of each subject. I have always wanted to make a difference and Schiller international University has given me the tools I need to get into a great company where I can apply all of the skills I acquired into my daily tasks with complete confidence.

I am looking forward to all of the practical and hands-on experience I will be able to gain during my time at amazon.es

Amazon provides global online shopping from the world’s largest selection of books, magazines, music, electronics, computers, software, and much more.
