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.
